Michelle Obama Has Had a Social—and Busy—48 Hours

The First Lady’s activities included a girls’ night out, a photo shoot, and dancing in the aisles at a show.

It’s been a busy 48 hours for First Lady Michelle Obama. We reported Thursday that a team from Vogue was at the White House to do a cover shoot for the magazine. It could be for the March issue, or it could be for April. We hear Beyoncé is also in consideration for a cover.

Since that report we’ve learned the photo shoot was likely to continue into Friday, but before all that she had a big night Thursday. There was birthday dinner at BLT Steak for a friend, and the party was reportedly eight women, including White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett. The restaurant is clearly a birthday favorite for Mrs. Obama. Last year she celebrated her own birthday there with the President, Jarrett, and Attorney General Eric Holder.

The girls’ night out included a later stop at the Howard Theatre, presumably with the same group of women, as After Hours reported earlier.
