The Obama ladies choose J.Crew
Famously frugal fashionista Michelle Obama donned olive green J.Crew gloves along with her Isabel Toledo ensemble to President Obama's swearing-in ceremony, while adorable Sasha and Malia Obama both wore full outfits from crewcuts by J.Crew, a rep confirmed. Malia featured wore a periwinkle blue coat, and Sasha donned a deep coral dress under her guava coat.
The outfits were specially designed for the Obamas, but highlights may be seen in the fall '09 J.Crew and crewcuts collections.We wanted to offer a collection that would not define them/, but one that would let their her own personalities shine though, said Jenna Lyons, Creative Director of J.Crew.
Michelle also wore the brand to the Kids Inaugural: We Are The Future" concert, while the girls donned crewcuts to the inaugural concert Sunday.
J.Crew's Web site has this message for the Obamas -- in red, white and blue lettering, of course: "Congratulations to the first family. On this historic day, all of us at J.Crew would like to extend our very best to the president and his family."
