Sasha Obama is stepping out as a fashionsita in her own right. The youngest daughter of President and First Lady Obama is the cause of a shopping frenzy for British online retailer ASOS.
After the 12-year-old wore an unicorn-emblazoned sweater to a basketball game last weekend, the $18.69 top (originally priced $62.29) became the center of massive public interest and quickly sold out.
“Nothing in college basketball this season will be cooler than Sasha Obama’s sweater,” one Twitter user wrote.
“Sasha Obama’s unicorn sweater wins,” another added.
According to the New York Daily News, ASOS had no plans to restock the black knit, but due to the constant demand, the company changed its mind. ASOS confirmed on their blog that the it-item will return on December 2, just in time for holiday shopping.
After the youngest Obama, Sasha, wore a (sold out, boo) ASOS unicorn jumper to a basketball game at the weekend the internet went crazy for it and demanded a restock. Well good news SObama fans, the cute sweat will be back online to buy from 2 December, so set your iCal and keep your eye on the ASOS Twitter feed for more updates. Skippidy-yippidy-unicorn-yay!
Sasha isn’t the only trendsetter in the family. Her sister Malia made fashion headlines with her purple J.Crew coat from the presidential inauguration, and of course, First Lady Michelle has been a style star since she and her husband stepped into the White House in 2008.
