When your parent becomes president, your entire life becomes public — meaning every sartorial choice could end up in the news.
Both Barack Obama’s girls (Sasha and Malia) and Donald Trump’s girls (Tiffany and Ivanka) are familiar with scrutiny of their fashion choices. But each set of siblings has a distinct and different sense of style.
Now 21, Malia was only 10 years-old when her dad took over the White House — so it’s no surprise that her shoe style has changed over the years. As a youngster, ballet flats were her main footwear choice, but today she prefers casual, age-appropriate styles like combat boots or summery sandals.
Her 18-year-old sister, Sasha, has experienced a similar style evolution. When she was younger, Sasha could often be spotted in ballet flats or Converse high-tops. Her more recent favorites include sneakers from Unif and Nike (both priced at under $100).
Meanwhile, the Trump girls tend to favor stilettos — something they have in common with their stepmom, first lady Melania Trump.
Ivanka, 37, has a wardrobe full of sleek pencil skirts, trench coats and floral frocks. As for shoes, the senior White House advisor likes the Manolo Blahnik BB pump (a favorite of Melania’s), as well as parcel tape-inspired stilettos from Burberry.
Like her older sister, 25-year-old Tiffany tends to favor high heels. The Georgetown Law student’s favorite heels are from Aruna Seth and boast crystal-embellished butterflies. She also likes Christian Louboutin’s sleek stilettos.
Their fathers stand on opposite sides of the political spectrum — and the Obama and Trump girls’ style sensibilities are perhaps equally different.
The Obama daughters like walkable styles like combat boots and sneakers, while the Trumps are all about the stilettos. The former often work in more affordable silhouettes, while the latter tend to go with designer styles.
