Malia Obama is Taking Fashion Cues from Her Mom

Even the first daughter considers Michelle a style icon.

Some may shudder at the thought of dressing like their mom, but when your mom is Michelle Obama, aka the ultimate style icon? You might just welcome that comparison—and try to steal as many tips as you can. For the President’s farewell speech, Malia Obama proved that she, just like the rest of us, has been paying attention to Michelle’s style moves, wearing a black-and-white dress by Cinq à Sept, a brand the first lady has worn in the past.

We’ve been working with the First Family for a couple of months now and have had the pleasure of providing Michelle, Malia, and Sasha with outfits for special moments in their life, designer Jane Siskin told us. We knew the Seraphina dress would show off the elegance and poise of an amazing young woman. It is always exciting to dress someone who we know will be in the spotlight, but for such an emotional and historic moment we were especially honored.”

While we could easily picture Michelle showing up at an event in something similar, Malia gave the dress a trendy, teenage twist, adding a black choker to her look. The best part? It's not as expensive as one might assume: for just $395, you can own this MObama-approved piece.
