Mrs. Obama loves kiddy Halloween remake of official portrait

Mrs. Obama loves kiddy Halloween remake of official portrait


<p>Former United States First Lady Michelle Obama on Thursday celebrated a young girl who remade Mrs. Obama’s official portrait in a Halloween look.</p> <p>Quoting Parker Curry’s tweet that asked people to guess who she was, Michelle wrote: “You nailed the look, Parker! I love it!!!!”</p> <p>Little Parker’s photo is reminiscent of Michelle’s portrait lodged at the Portrait Gallery in Washington DC. It was unveiled in February 2018 along with that of Barack Obama.</p> <p>She wears a colourful flowing dress and rests her cheeks on her right hand with a smile – just as did Michelle in the portrait put together by artist Amy Sherald. </p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">You nailed the look, Parker!

The day falls on November 1 and is marked as a Christian feast day honouring all the saints; first observed in 835.</p> <p>It is more famed with people wearing rather scary disguises to parties even though Parker’s outfit was a more pleasant and appealing one, one that got the attention of her older “duplicate.”</p>
