Looks like Bo Obama now has a little sister! Yesterday, the White House announced that the Obamas have added a member to the First Family, their new dog Sunny. Just like Bo, Sunny is also a Portugese Water Dog — a favorite of the family as the breed doesn’t trigger their allergies — and was born last June in Michigan. An adorable video of Sunny playing with her brother on the White House lawn was posted on the White House’s official YouTube, and the new girl also received a warm Internet welcome from the First Lady. ”So happy to introduce the newest member of the Obama family — our puppy, Sunny!” Michelle Obama wrote on Twitter. The Obama family also made a donation to the Washington Humane Society in Sunny’s honor, and we’re excited to see more of her in the official appearances to come.

He’s back! President Barack Obama secured himself another four years in our nation’s highest office last night, and when the First Family took the stage in Chicago, we were struck by how much they have grown. With the same results on Election Night four years ago—an Obama victory—Barack (then 47, now 51), Michelle (then 44, now 48), Malia (then 10, now 14), and Sasha (then 7, now 11) all coordinated in red outfits, most strikingly the new First Lady in a Narcisco Rodriguez red and black dress that will forever be etched in our memories. Fast forward four years to last night, when the family coordinated in a new way, not with color, but with high-shine, walking across the stage in glossy individualized looks, including Michelle in a magenta pintucked dress by Michael Kors. And there is no stopping the family’s growth now—by the time the president leaves office in 2016, Malia will even be eligible to vote and be dealing with college. This also means four more years of the First Lady style, and we can’t wait to see how she and her entire family continues to evolve over the next four years, within the walls of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and beyond.

You’ll see something a little familiar in Tracy Reese’s new collection for her Made in Kind collaboration at Anthropologie—a dress inspired by the look she custom created for Michelle Obama’s first speech at the Democratic National Convention in September. “This is actually the same dress Mrs. Obama wore to the Democratic National Convention, in a new different version,” Reese told InStyle.com at a party celebrating the new lineup in New York City this week. “She wore the sleeveless version in a different fabric,” Reese added. “I wanted to make it as rich as possible, so we printed it on this wonderful silk and linen jacquard so it just gives some texture to it, and topped it off with something abstract printed on lace.” The Floral Combo dress will land in stores and anthropologie.com for $298 starting Tuesday, October 9th.

Malia Obama, the president’s eldest daughter, is taking after her mother First Lady Michelle Obama as a rising style star. Last week, the 12-year-old wore a green printed dress by Chris Benz for the White House state dinner, a look from the designer’s spring 2010 collection. Meanwhile, her mother chose a red gown by Alexander McQueen for the same occasion.
