Desiree Rogers in the East Room of the White House.  She is wearing Cartier earrings (We want, want WANT!) and a trench coat by Viktor & Rolf.

We've got some interesting dish on White house Social Secretary Desiree Rogers.  Like, when she plans a White House party, she has a lot more on her mind than just seating charts, what to wear and whether to go with cloth or paper napkins - she's thinking of how each event might extend the Obama presidency as a brand.  (Smart!) She has an after Weight Watchers figure (hate her!), impeccable taste, and - get this!- an ancestor who was a Creole voodoo priestess! (No, seriously.) 

How are we so smart?  Where do we get our secrets?  Why, from WSJ Magazine, of course!  Ms. Rogers is featured in the May issue.  So either pick up a copy or click on the links below to take a peek inside the magazine and her fabulous life.
