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!!!!
celebrity style: the who, what & where of celebrity fashion
The Call of the Wild trend has gone from animal print to full-out birds of prey lately, as seen on these stars. Pretty fierce, no?
These stars prove that the traditionally feminine fabric can be edgy, too.
There isn't a single beauty trend that's as high drama, sultry, and decidedly timeless as the cat eye. Through the decades, the feminine flick has graced the lash lines of many of the greats, from '50s silver screen siren Sophia Loren to modern crooner Lana Del Rey. As an ode to the winged liner look, we're looking back at the most 20 most iconic iterations on the illustrious women that made them famous. Learn how to paint on perfect black winged eyes here.
Since its inception in 1940, the International Best-Dressed List—revealed in Vanity Fair for the last decade—has lauded the most polished, eclectic, and stylish of dressers. From royalty to politicians, athletes to fashion designers, the poll is comprehensive in the personalities it celebrates. Those appearing multiple times over the years are considered for induction into the Hall of Fame—the List’s highest honor.
Have you ever noticed that denim ads are some of the sexiest? And most memorable? We can’t tell you how many of the people featured on our site, jeanstories.com, swoon as they reminisce about the first time they watched the 1985 Levis’s 501s “Laundrette” TV spot featuring the handsome Nick Kamen—who ended up , ahem, sans jeans. As for print ads, think Guess, Calvin Klein … not only sexy, but envelope-pushing and groundbreaking. If concerned mothers of America are writing angry letters to their local newspapers about the boob-baring models of your campaign, you, as a jeans brand, know you’ve done something right.
The American shopping channel will soon welcome a new brand created by British singer and fashion icon Kelly Osbourne.
Kate Middleton likes outlet malls too.
To say Cara Delevingne is trending is an understatement: Her brows are a hot Google search term, she has around 2.8 million (and growing) Instagram followers, and it’s a challenge to find a Pinterest board without her on it. She’s the girl everyone wants to look like (and be BFF with, too). Check out her best beauty moments—and pin away.
Like red lipstick, cat eyes owe their timeless appeal to their spectacular, style-defining range that can, depending on application, telegraph Old Hollywood glamour, graphic minimalism, or counter-culture punk—what else do Siouxsie Sioux and Brigitte Bardot have in common? It’s impossible to think of Marilyn Monroe without those heavy-lidded bedroom eyes or Amy Winehouse sans her subversive, exaggerated swipe. A mere sweep of eye pencil transformed Anna Karina from a fresh-faced teenager into a French New Wave style icon, and Sophia Loren’s wide-eyed gaze has been forever etched into our collective memory with a frame of perfectly delineated black powder liner. Today, Alexa Chung gives the look a modern ease with a signature liquid swoosh that feels right whether she’s heading to brunch, the airport, or the red carpet. Here’s a look at the best feline eyes of all time. We feel certain that Choupette would approve.
Sorry, Kate Upton. You may be having a moment now, but the lovely supermodels of the '90s (and '80s) have been going strong for decades, and their careers and stunning looks are showing no signs of slowing down. In fact, we think they've only gotten sexier throughout the years.
There’s just something about those supermodels. Whether they’re headed to or from the runway or exiting the airport or Studio 54, models always seem to manage to perfectly nail that covetable “I just threw this together and yes, I do look great in everything” insouciance. Plus, they do have access to the best of the best. . . . Let’s just say that “the Model Off Duty look” became a “thing” for a reason. Maybe it’s the dog days of summer, maybe it’s some planetary shift, maybe it’s our own wardrobe-related fatigue, but something out there has got us seriously hankering for supermodel style. Here we’ve gathered our favorites, from seventies stunners like Jerry Hall and Patti Hansen to the knockouts from the nineties (Stephanie Seymour during the Axl Rose era, anyone?), and modern style stars like Karlie Kloss, Cara Delevingne, and Joan Smalls. Take some inspiration from the leggy sirens of street style as you glide into August. Our favorites below.
They look like twins!
