Cost of the Obama girls’ Moscow outfits? $673.99

And that’s just the coats and shoes.  J. Crew isn’t letting this marketing opportunity pass them by.

J.Crew is using Sasha and Malia Obama to market some of its spring and summer styles, in a press release sent …

… to reporters Monday afternoon titled “The Obama Girls Bring Some American Style to Moscow.”  sashamalia

“Malia & Sasha wore J.Crew and crewcuts as they exited Air Fore One in Moscow — stylish in their trenches, they also accessorized with ballet flat shoes,” the release says.

The notice includes two photographs of Sasha and Malia deplaning Air Force One with their parents and an image of the J.Crew logo.
Malia’s J.Crew designs:
• Silk Taffeta Trench (14968, $298, Buff)
• Satin Ballet Flats With Contrast Trim (16028, $98, Black)

Sasha’s crewcuts designs:
• Girls’ Crushed Twill Trench (13100, $169.99, Buff)
• Girls’ Minna Printed Ballet Flats (16344, $108, Classic Navy)

Don’t get me wrong.  They are adorable girls and I’m sure someone else had a hand in picking out their ensembles.  But $108 shoes for a seven year-old girl is obnoxious. I guess when your mom has no problem wearing $400 sneakers you’re bound to end up in some pricey ballet flats.

  1. I don’t mind the girls being dressed nicely but you can bet the farm that none of these overpriced threads were made in the USA. So much for protecting his union buds.
