First Ladies in Vogue


It began in the late 1920s when Lou Henry Hoover, the wife of President Herbert Hoover, sat for a portrait taken by photographer Edward Steichen. The stately image appeared in the May 11, 1929 issue of Vogueí¬just a few months before the stock-market crash that precipitated the Great Depressioní¬and started a now long-standing tradition of the nationí»s First Ladies appearing in the pages of the magazine. Tonight, with another election upon us, we looked back through our archives, not for pictures of the presidents, but for our favorite images of the smart, powerful women who stood beside themí¬from Eleanor Roosevelt to Jacqueline Kennedy to Nancy Reagan to Michelle Obama.
