Even though the party was for a turkey, Sasha, 14-years-old, and Malia Obama, 17-years-old, still brought their fashion game. At the annual White House Turkey presentation held in the Rose Garden, President Barack Obama's two teenage daughters dressed to the nines to watch Abe the turkey and his alternate, Honest, get pardoned.
Malia wore a black and white striped turtleneck from American Apparel and forest green A-line mini with tights. She topped it off with a two-tone coat, thick white socks and flat boots. Sasha also favored American Apparel for the event and wore a denim miniskirt and off-white sweater from the brand with tights, socks and similar black boots to those of her sister. The younger Obama also sported some fetching black framed eyeglasses.
At the event President Obama said, "Time flies, even if turkeys don’t."
"That was good. That was good," Sasha said.
The president thanked his daughters for coming to all seven of his pardons during his tenure. "They do this solely because it makes me feel good, not because they actually think this is something I should be doing," he said. "And, you know, as you get older, you appreciate when your kids just indulge you like this.”
The White House Turkey Pardon is a 68 year old tradition according to the White House.
