Obama Girls Wear J.Crew

By
Clearly Barak Obama hasn't graduated from the Thom Browne school of pant lengths.

Sasha and Malia Obama looked adorable this morning at Barack's inauguration. Michelle wore a designer dress and coat by Isabel Toledo, but 7-year-old Sasha and 10-year-old Malia were more modest in Crewcuts by J.Crew, the brand's kids' line (though Michelle's green gloves were also by J.Crew). A press release from J.Crew boasts:

Malia featured a deep periwinkle blue coat, while her equally chic sister wore a deep coral dress under her sweet guava coat, vivid orange scarf and glove set, each tied with a velvet ribbon belt around the waist.

Ah yes, the fashion vocabulary used to describe the grown-up set has trickled down to those of single-digit age. We can't wait for the self-congratulatory press release from whoever designed their Inaugural gowns. "The fabulous Sasha, 7, and elegant Malia, 10, STUN in elegant [Insert Designer Name Here]." Just feels off.
