Malia Obama, Sasha Obama Look All Grown Up During China Trip With Michelle Obama
The First Daughters -- all grown up and gorgeous! Malia and Sasha Obama have joined their mom Michelle Obama and grandmom Marian Robinson in China for a seven-day, three-city goodwill tour that focuses on cultural and educational exchange. The quartet's first top was in the city of Beijing on Friday, March 21, where all four ladies were photographed looking beautiful in a group shot with Chinese President Xi Jinping and his own first lady, Peng Liyuan.
From left, Sasha, 12, wore a long-sleeve cherry frock aligned with a white belt at her waist. She paired her outfit with black floral tights and a pair of simple flats. Fifty-year-old FLOTUS, meanwhile, matched her youngest daughter in a red three-quarter-sleeve lace frock, which she elegantly paired with red pointed-toe pumps.
The true star of the foreign photo op, however, was 15-year-old Malia -- who resembled her stylish mom more than ever -- in a high-waisted floral skirt and matching crop top from Topshop. Unlike many teens wearing crop tops, Malia opted not to bare her midriff, by hiking up her skirt, while meeting the leader of China and his wife on Friday.
On Monday, Malia, Sasha and Michelle visited the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall of China, looking sporty and stylish in relaxed attire and comfy shoes. The beautiful ladies were photographed laughing while exploring the historical Forbidden City.
FLOTUS even danced with traditional Chinese performers on the City Wall in China's central Shaanxi province.
As part of her first-ever trip to China, the First Lady made just one major speech on Saturday at the Stanford Center at Peking University in Beijing, where she openly addressed China's restrictions on media freedom. "My husband and I are on the receiving end of plenty of questioning and criticism from our media and our fellow citizens, and it’s not always easy, but we wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world," she told students at China's oldest university, as reported by Time. "It is so important for information and ideas to flow freely over the Internet ... because that's how we discover the truth."
The family is scheduled to be reunited with President Barack Obama stateside in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday.
