The Obamas Page 1
It is frrrrreezing here on the East Coast, which means that the outdoor portion of today’s Presidential Inauguration ceremony necessitated not only an array of amazing coats from Sasha, Malia, and Michelle Obama, but also some serious winter accessorizing.
Every year, Queen Elizabeth receives hundreds of gifts from princes, presidents, and random weirdos alike. And with 2012 being the year of the Diamond Jubilee extravaganza, the presents were more plentiful than ever. The Daily Mail has a breakdown of the many, many gifts the royal family received this year — though, sadly, not those given to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, as those are reported separately — and we’ve plucked out the, shall we say, unusual ones from the bunch.
It’s official: Sasha and Malia Obama are those teenagers you see in the airport and spend half your time at the gate sitting around and scoping out their outfits.
Making it home for the holidays can be a major headache, what with cancelled flights, hour-long airport lines, and icy, traffic-jammed roads. Of course, things get a little easier when you have Air Force One at your disposal.
If you thought the Obama ladies looked stylish while going to fetch their festive pines for the White House, just wait ’till you see what they wore to the lighting of the National Christmas Tree last night.
Kate Middleton is officially pregnant and the Obamas are just as excited about it as the rest of us.
We’re still digesting last night’s Thanksgiving feast, but the Obamas are getting a head start on the holiday season with the official White House Christmas tree. Michelle, Malia, and Sasha were on hand to receive a 19-foot Fraser Fir from North Carolina today and, of course, the trio looked fab doing so.
Just a month after a Dutch fashion magazine’s editor-in-chief quit after using an uncouth racial slur to describe Rihanna‘s style, a writer for French Elle has caused controversy with a blog post positing that for Black people, dressing well is a brand new concept.
This week the Obamas wore awesome things, Elizabeth Taylor‘s jewelry sold for a whole lot of money, and Courtney Love got evicted. We also learned that Meryl Streep is a total kickass feminist, and that Fashion’s Night Out is unfortunately here to stay.
That’s right, Michelle and Barack are getting the royal snub. The Daily Mail reports that since Prince William isn’t heir to the throne yet (that distinction belongs to his father Prince Charles), his wedding won’t be considered a “state occasion.” As such, him and Kate have decided to leave the Obamas off the coveted guest list.
This week Carine shocked the fashion world by stepping down from Vogue Paris, Nicole Richie‘s wedding dress was a thing we coveted and Kate and Will got called out on their Photoshopped pics. Whatever, we’re just really glad we don’t work for UBS.
