Malia Obama’s Festival Style
Malia Obama and a friend, just being kids at Lollapalooza
This weekend, Malia Obama was caught being a normal teenager, and the Internet freaked out. Obama, who we’re used to seeing looking prim and proper, took in the festivities at Lollapalooza just like the rest of us would have — in crop tops and short shorts. And, yes, there is video evidence indicating that the elder Obama sister indeed had a fabulous time partying and dancing offbeat with her homegirls, just like everyone else.
Anyway, besides being inspired by her blissfully carefree behavior, we are also loving Malia’s low-key Lollapalooza swag. Below, we recreated looks similar to the ones rocked by the 18-year-old during her weekend of festival fun.
Senator Bernie Sanders (D-Vermont) discusses breaking up major financial institutions and the passing of a 21st-century Glass-Steagall Act.
