Pint-Sized Fashionistas

Michelle Obama may be getting all the credit as a style maven, but the other ladies in President Obama's life, Sasha and Malia, are having a seismic effect on the clothing world, too.

After it was revealed that the First Daughters were sporting J. Crew outfits for the past two days, the preppy retailer's Web site went down with "technical difficulties" as shoppers swarmed. As of press time the site was still out of commission.

During inauguration festivities, Sasha and Malia both wore apparel from the J. Crew's Crewcuts, a kid's fashion line that boasts "designer details" and couture touches on mini-me separates.

Before the J. Crew site went down Tuesday its staff had posted a "Congratulations to the First Family" message.
