The United States First Lady Michelle Obama joins twelve other first ladies of world leaders in a portrait in the July 2009 issue of British Vogue.
The ‘First Wives Club’ portrait was shot by Mario Testino during the G20 summit in April 2009.
The featured first wives are, from left to right, as follows: Ban Soon-taek (United Nations), Laureen Harper (Canada), Chikako Aso (Japan), Gursharan Kaur (India), Kim Yoon-ok (South Korea), Michelle Obama (US), Sarah Brown (UK), Margarite Zavala (Mexico), Svetlana Medvedeva (Russia), Emine Erdogan (Turkey), Theresa Rein (Australia), Margarida Barroso (European Commission), and Pimpen Vejjajiva (Thailand).
The issue also features an elegant black and white shot of Michelle Obama by Mario Testino. The rest of the images in the gallery (5-10) show British First lady Sarah Brown with the guests at the Royal Opera House during the shoot.
