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
