Any fashionable lady knows that packing for a seven-day trip is quite the daunting task. But First Daughters Malia and Sasha Obama not only got it done for their trip to China—they shut it down.
The budding fashion icons, who accompanied their chic FLOTUS mom and grandmother, Marian Robinson, for a visit, wowed us with their outfit choices to meet with foreign dignitaries, traverse the Great Wall, and even schedule in some fun with traditional Chinese dancers.
Check out some of our favorite looks.
The elegant siblings entered the country looking dignified in jewel-tone minis, tights, and sophisticated sweaters. (Side note: The skirts almost look like the Party Skirts I wrote about this summer.) Love the simplicity of the pearl studs.
Here, the girls hit Beijing to hobnob with Chinese President Xi Jinping and his wife, Peng Liyuan. I adore Sasha’s bright belted dress (spot-on for a tween), but 15-year-old Malia wears an enviable matching Topshop set — another prime example of the crop top’s ability to look polished.
Here, at the Forbidden City, the girls are all smiles and in A-lines. I’m personally just so excited to see what extraordinary women the First Daughters become, inside and out.
I’m thoroughly impressed. How about you? Take a gander below and tell me your proudest moments.
They look like nice girls....I cannot believe all the horrible comments. All you of you hide and act like thugs yourselves. I know they have money and can afford to dress like this, but I feel they can be role models for girls their age. Their modest clothing styles are refreshing.
Wish I could see your faces and know your names and tell you in person how terrible you are. These girls have done nothing to you. And....aren't you half-way intelligent enough to realize this trip is to promote goodwill and to possibly help the future of all of you 'idiots'!
Why are these freeloading Obamas even there? Some GREEN liberal family this is....... burn thousands of gallons of jet fuel and taxpayer money to have a week of photo ops in China. And more importantly accomplish absolutely nothing.
Worst president and first lady ever. They have no idea what they are doing.
$8,400.00 a night suite in Beijing......while the lines at the food pantry where I'm a volunteer are gettng longer everyday. Was it Marie Antoinette or Michelle Obama who said...."Let them eat cake."?
Well glad to see they are spending my tax dollars well. Shouldn't they be in school. While I am on furlough and discussions about budget cuts and me losing my job, this was something great to read...NOT!!!! GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!

The leading ladies who make summer beauty look effortless.
OK, you're pushing 30 . . . don't panic! Even if you were a complete antiaging recluse in your 20s, there is still time to enter the next decade with endless grace and fewer wrinkles. And who better to steal skin care secrets from than the actresses who remain looking forever young? These Hollywood starlets may be in their 30s, but there's nary a dark spot in sight. Their beauty favorites range from drugstore classics to cult luxury elixirs and even a DIY recipe. With this shopping list under your belt, you can celebrate your 30s without a worry line in sight.
There’s a particular episode of 30 Rock (“Black Light Attack!”, for all the fellow 30 Rock historians out there) in which Jane Krakowski’s youth-obsessed character Jenna goes on a Gossip Girl audition. She thinks it’s for the role of an Upper East Side high schooler, but as she learns in the middle of the tryout, it’s for that of her mother instead. While Tina Fey’s brilliant Liz Lemon later tries to talk Jenna off the cliff, she says, “You can try to fight getting older. You can be like Madonna, and cling to youth with your Gollum arms. Or you can be like Meryl Streep and embrace your age with elegance.”
In the hundred-plus years since the birth of the modern fashion magazine, it’s safe to say the definition of American beauty has expanded. And, yet, every so often, a model appears on the scene that captures the country’s collective imagination. Distilling all the values of a particular time and place into one willowy, superhuman frame, these women serve as both muse and marker for their generation. What would the 1950s be, after all, without the immaculate sangfroid of Dovima—a New York City–born beauty with the face of an aristocrat that, as the modeling agent Eileen Ford once put it, “looked like she could freeze ice.” The sixties ushered in a wave idiosyncratic ingenues culminating with Marisa Berenson, whose tawny skin and liberated good looks would go on to epitomize the jet-set bohemianism of the 1970s alongside glamorous late-era superstars Jerry Hall and Pat Cleveland. The eighties were all about the healthy athleticism and wholesome voluptuousness that would come to characterize the world’s idea of American beauty. That, combined with an instantly recognizable signature—Brooke Shields’s brows! Cindy Crawford’s mole!—were what would eventually give rise to the nineties supermodel. The California-born Christy Turlington laid claim to that title. Then came Pennsylvania-bred Kristen McMenamy, who, with her fearless spirit, shaved brows, and androgynous good looks, wiped the slate clean for a less conventional kind of beauty. In more recent years, a string of new faces have charmed and captivated us once again. A few of our favorites: Karlie Kloss, Kate Upton, and Joan Smalls (who hails from the commonwealth of Puerto Rico). Made in the USA has never looked so good. Here, a look at our favorite American beauties throughout the years.
Going short has never looked better.
These actresses and models had a little more than touch-ups done on the computer.
Think "simple in a sophisticated, not tricky, not trendy way."

There are a few things we know to expect when we see Beyoncé perform. There will be dancing. There will be wind machines. There will be no pants. But Queen Bey always keeps us guessing with her onstage hair and makeup. Check out her most memorable looks of all time.
Every few seasons or so, fashion folk fall for a new animal. The infatuation starts hard and heavy—they just can’t get enough of that adorable face!—and then the magic starts to peter out. Be it a reptile or mammal or marsupial, this critter du jour starts to feel stale; a new one starts popping up on shirts, hats and bags. The affair is over.
