And so we turn to the junior members of the party

You can't get the coats just yet. The double-breasted blue coat Malia wore, and the light pink one Sasha wore, both accessoried with satin and velvet ribbons tied around the waist, were specially designed for the girls by the American chain J Crew. This company has been a favourite with Michelle Obama - the green leather gloves she wore to keep out the Washington cold were also from the label. In the week it was revealed that Sarah Palin had been given a $150,000 wardrobe budget for campaign outfits, Michelle appeared on Jay Leno's show in an outfit from J Crew, thereby endearing herself to millions of Americans with her choice of safe but stylish - and, crucially, affordable - clothes. The company says that "highlights" from the girls' outfits will be available in its 2009 autumn collection.

Malia looks like she's ready to set the world on fire already, and she's only ten.

They have some seriously beautiful genes in that family.

That's Barack's sister behind them, isn't it.

Was cute to see all the crusty old pols going "Aw" as the kids walked by.

Yes, Malia is adorable. Everyone is saying 'stop the idolising' but how can you? The whole family is perfection embodified!
