(CNN) -- Despite a backlog of political scandal, Hillary Rodham Clinton appears to be weathering it well in the public eye -- touring Haitian hospitals, visiting Central American hurricane victims, posing for the cover of Vogue.

Yep, Clinton does a glamour girl turn with a photo spread and story in the December issue of Vogue.

"She's emerged so triumphant this year that we really wanted to capture her extraordinary good looks," said Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour.

Clinton dons a Oscar de la Renta evening gown in the White House's Red Room for the top shot by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz. Inside pages show a relaxed first lady with wearing a black sweater and pants or a crisp white Ralph Lauren shirt.

"We kind of wanted to get her out of those suits she tends to wear when she's campaigning," Wintour said.

The Vogue issue, the first to feature a first lady on the front, will hit newstands this week.
