INAUGURATION DAY

During Barack Obama’s first presidential inauguration in January 2009, the Obama sisters stepped out in colorful wool coats and winter accessories designed by J.Crew. Malia wore sapphire blue, while Sasha dressed in orange and pink, and their outfits caused J.Crew stock to jump 10 percent.

AND PUPPY MAKES FIVE

In April 2009, the White House announced that the Obama family had accepted a gift from Sen. Ted Kennedy — a Portuguese water dog named Bo. Here are Sasha and Malia getting to know Bo — and the strength of his leash — on the South Lawn of the White House on April 14, 2009.

SUNDAY BEST

About two years into Obama’s first term, 9-year-old Sasha and 12-year-old Malia continued to epitomize elegance in and around Washington D.C. Notice the sibling sophistication during this visit to St. John's Episcopal Church.

JET-SETTING IN STYLE
