Malia Obama was recently spotted out and about in the Tribeca neighborhood of New York City. She wore a trendy Moschino denim jacket that cost more than most of us earn in a month. But Malia's frugal parents, former President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle, reportedly keep the teenager on a shoestring budget.
Other than an expensive Alexander Wang shearling coat and a pair of 3.1 Phillip Lim Boots (retail $695), Malia's dresses on a budget.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Malia wears pieces from Urban Outfitters, J.Crew and online retailer Asos. Not exactly high end brands.
So when we spotted Malia's friend wearing that same Moschino jacket, it made sense. Malia borrowed her friend's jacket to shut up the fashion bloggers who say she wears the same shoes and coats repeatedly.
