Facing competition from other fast-growing fashion magazines, as well as from cable shows and the Internet, Vogue has launched a publicity campaign to remind advertisers and readers of the magazine's credentials in haute couture. Vogue's slogan, "Before It's in Fashion, It's in Vogue," is on 1,800 buses in Manhattan, where it is seen by influential designers and advertising executives.

Robert Overby's large billboard knockoffs sift through layers of Madison Avenue graphic hype like a cut-and-paste primer for marketing the vacuous. Images like "See Robert" bubble with appreciation for firm flesh and neat packaging that equates with style. Yet faint, underpainted images suggesting scenes from blue movies hint at more exploitative sexual underpinnings. Overby's exploration of the marketing of desirability focuses on women as objects that sell and are sold.

Although husband John's popularity is often ascribed to his loquaciousness around journalists -- what reporter doesn't love a presidential candidate who gabs? -- Cindy McCain, 53, is far more reserved. The June issue of Vogue magazine features a story and photo layout on the would-be first lady, but the glossy monthly didn't get her to cough up much that's new. Still, there are a few tidbits: McCain owns not one but two condos in a Coronado building on San Diego Bay.

It's official: Michelle Obama is the first lady of American fashion, appearing on the cover of the March issue of Vogue. Every first lady since Lou Hoover -- save Bess Truman -- has been photographed for the high-fashion magazine. Mrs. Obama appears wearing a magenta silk sheath dress by Jason Wu, who also designed her inaugural gown. Mrs. Obama said she is aware of how her wardrobe is being scrutinized, but she makes no apologies for her choices -- even the election night combination of ripped-from-the-runway, fashion-forward dress and plain-Jane cardigan.

There wasn't much suspense at Sunday night's VH1-Vogue Fashion Awards in New York. But there was plenty of overdone decolletage. So everyone knew who was going to win? Well, at least it was entertaining to guess who was likely to fall out of her dress. Due to a snafu with Vogue's distributor, embargoed copies of the magazine's December issue were released early, complete with a list of winners, which the New York Post gleefully reprinted on Saturday.
