Inauguration special morning round-up: The Bush twins’ advice to Obama’s girls, plus what time did Michelle kick off her heels?

21 January 2009


It's the morning after the night before and (even through our slightly puffy eyes – we were staying awake to catch site of the Jason Wu dress, of course!) we just can't get enough of Obama-mania. So feast your eyes on the best titbits doing the rounds this morning. And forgive us if we spend all day musing on Barack and Michelle. We can't help it...

Politics, schmolitics. The 27-year-old Bush twins have been giving advice to little Malia and Sasha Obama on what to expect from the White House. Most important tip: ‘Slide down the banister of the solarium...' How cute! [Huffington Post]

Rumour alert! Hillary Clinton was spotted mouthing along to the Presidential oath as Barack was sworn in at the Inaugural Ceremony. Jealous much, Mrs C? We wish this was true. [The Onion]

What was Aretha Franklin wearing on her head? The burning question answered: her $179 hat was from the Mr Song Millinery in Detroit and was customised with Swarovski crystals. Well, it beat her belting out ‘My Country, ’Tis of Thee'. [LA Times]

Hurrah! After 12 hours on her feet standing by her man, Mrs O finally had to give in to temptation and kick off her Jimmy Choos. The woman's only human... [TMZ]
