Will Sasha & Malia Betray Michelle Obama’s Local Fashion Sense?
Are Sasha and Malia Obama bound to become feverish Topshop fans? They are if UK Prime Minister’s wife Sarah Brown has her way. It seems on her first visit to the newly Obama-occupied White House, Michelle’s across-the-pond counterpart came bearing one of her country’s most in-demand exports (at least as far as twentysomething, fashion-savvy Americans are concerned): Topshop. According to the Telegraph, the garb in question were brought as a gift for the First Daughters.
What’s especially interesting about the clothing in question is not Mrs. Brown’s embracing of high street fashion (after all, Mrs. Obama wore H&M on the campaign trail), but the fact that Michelle Obama has so openly embraced predominantly American designers. Just like Mrs. Brown, the First Lady has consistently showed her support of her country by sporting local work. But whether or not Sasha and Malia will follow suit remains to be seen. Regardless, given the fact that Topshop’s much-anticipated SoHo store doesn’t open for another month, rest assured the First daughters are, for the time being, the envy of many Manhattanites.
