The Obama Sisters Made A Colorful Crew On Inauguration Day
For Barack Obama's first presidential inauguration in January 2009, the Obama sisters stepped out in colorful wool coats and winter accessories designed especially for them by J.Crew. Malia, 10, looked stunning in sapphire blue, while Sasha, 7, appeared age-appropriate in tones of orange and pink. Over the years, the first lady and her daughters have frequently turned to this iconic American brand for classic statement pieces.
Following the inauguration, J. Crew stocks jumped 10 percent, reported The New York Times, and its web site temporarily crashed due to the overwhelming volume of traffic looking to mimic the first family's style.
