First lady of the US Dr. Jill Biden has been featured on the front cover of Vogue’s August issue.

In a gorgeous cover shoot, the first lady looked sophisticated in a navy and floral Oscar de la Renta dress as she posed with the White House in the backdrop.

Another photograph captured the glamorous 70-year-old in action with a pencil between her teeth, her reading glasses on and typing on her Apple laptoop in the Executive Residence’s East Sitting Hall.

In the accompanying interview, the American educator said people had cast their doubts over whether she would be able to continue teaching while taking on the duties as the first lady.

But she never had any plans of slowing down as she went onto balance teaching and being the first lady.

She told the glossy magazine: “I heard that all the time during the campaign. Like, ‘No. You’re not going to be able to teach as first lady.’ And I said, ‘Why not? You make things happen, right?’”

With big ambitions, Dr. Biden vowed to never waste the platform she has been given.

She told the publication: “When I became second lady—and there was so much I wanted to do—I always said, ‘I will never waste this platform… And now I have a bigger platform and I feel every day, like....What could I give up? That I would want to give up? Nothing.

In fact, she only wants to add to her good work.

The third photograph gave a more personal insight as it captured her tender relationship with her husband President Joe Biden.

In the same interview, her husband admitted taking office had affected their marriage as he candidly confessed he misses his wife.

He told the magazine: “Yeah, it has [taking office has affected our marriage]. I miss her.”

However, the president gushed he was “really proud” of his wife - even though they were unable to just disappear on romantic getaways like they once did when they were living in Delaware.

He said: “I’m really proud of her. But it’s not like we can just go off like we used to.”
