Michelle Obama’s broken new ground as First Lady but she wasn’t the first to appear in Vogue. Lou Henry Hoover, President Herbert Hoover’s wife, was photographed for the May 1929 issue of Vogue, published months before the stock market tanked, setting off the Great Depression. A number of first ladies followed.
