Amal Clooney has landed her first Vogue cover, as revealed by the fashion publication on Tuesday morning. Dressed in Alexander McQueen and photographed by Annie Leibovitz, she welcomed writer Nathan Heller into her English countryside home to talk about her career in international human rights law, motherhood and meeting (then marrying) George Clooney.

The timing of Clooney's May cover aligns with her co-hosting role for the Met Gala next month, alongside RihannaDonatella Versace and Anna Wintour. According to Wintour's Editor's Letter, the Costume Institute's spring exhibition, titled "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination," will be the largest largest Costume Institute show to date, as well as the biggest show ever at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. "It's hard to not sound hyperbolic about it, but it is going to be an absolutely magnificent experience," wrote Wintour.
