Malia And Sasha Obama Know What They Like, Fashion-Wise

Michelle Obama is getting a lot of attention for her keen fashion sense, but it seems that she passed along her style gene to daughters Malia and Sasha. In November, the first lady’s team approached J.Crew about submitting sketches for inaugural events, and the label submitted 20 sketches based on details they received about the first family. “Malia, she likes pleats and pared-down things and is not a huge fan of sparkles, but little Sasha loves bright colors and sparkly things,” said Jenna Lyons, J.Crew’s creative director. It seems that at age 10, Malia’s fashion tastes tend to be on the sophisticated end of the scale, while Sasha, 7, prefers to dress more playfully. So far, Malia and Sasha have worn two outfits each designed for them by J.Crew, and Michelle Obama has worn one; There were 15 outfits, comprised of about six pieces each, created for the Obama women. Come fall, similar clothes will be introduced into the crewcuts by J.Crew line, but they won’t be exactly the same. “They’ll be versions of them but not the exact coat, in that color, with those buttons,” Lyons said. “Malia and Sasha will not go to school next year and see the girl next to them wearing the same coat.” Heaven forbid anyone else have the same coats as the first daughters!

Ty Makes Sasha And Malia Dolls

Ty, the toy company that makes Beanie Babies, recently released dolls named “Sweet Sasha” (left) and “Marvelous Malia” (right) as part of their TyGirlz Collection. The company, based outside of Chicago in Oak Brook, IL, said they chose those names because “they are beautiful names,” rather than because they’re the names of the First Daughters. “There’s nothing on the dolls that refers to the Obama girls,” said spokesperson Tania Lundeen. “It would not be fair to say they are exact replications of these girls. They are not.” Clearly — the real Obama girls are way cuter. [AP] Keep reading »

America’s New Presidential Music Critics

President-elect Barack Obama had the courtesy to nod and even sing along to some of the worst performances at the “We Are One” concert to welcome him to the presidency. Well, he had to, basically. But his daughters Malia and Sasha, who don’t have to pretend to like something that is downright awful, had no problem showing their disapproval. Malia’s eyes glazed over in boredom when John Mellencamp, Will.I.Am, and Sheryl Crow hit the stage separately. Sasha simply fell asleep on her mother’s lap. But when Beyonce, Usher and Kal Penn hit the stage, both First Daughters perked up, and Malia excitedly snapped photos with her camera. Malia and Sasha definitely know what music America enjoys. It’s too bad the concert producers don’t. [New York]

Michelle Obama At The DNC: What Are Your Hopes For Your Daughters?

Last night Michelle Obama spoke at the Democratic National Convention and gave what I found to be an extremely inspiring speech — I especially appreciated that she didn’t seem to be overly rehearsed and even occasionally stumbled over her words. I’m not down with my politicians or my politicians spouses seeming like robotic newscasters. Anyway, the bulk of Michelle’s speech was about being a wife and mother and her hopes for the country — at the end she brought out daughters Malia and Sascha, who behaved as adorably as you would expect. Politics aside, Michelle’s speech got me thinking about what it means to be a successful professional, partner, and parent, especially when she referenced “Hillary Clinton’s 18 million cracks in the glass ceiling.” it was clear she did appreciate what her husband’s rival did for women, especially given what her hopes must be for her own daughters. With that in mind — and that today marks the 88th anniversary of the passing of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote — what are your hopes for your children, specifically your daughters? A few of mine after the jump and I really hope you’ll chime in with your own in the comments. Keep reading »
