ESSENCE‘s September cover features the Obama’s and it’s startlingly similar to a vintage Kennedy’s pose. Gawker takes a look, it’s interesting. I don’t know about you but I really can’t get enough of the Obama’s…no, really. Which is why I heart this EBONY Michelle cover. She is Claire Huxtable realized. [GKR]
