THIS is awesome. Mom looks like maybe a former goth, too, but now that she has money, she can buy Jil Sander and Rick Owens.

Is anyone watching Hung on HBO? These kids remind me of his kids. I love them. Especially the boy who is becoming gothier by the minute.

Pass the black nailpolish and put Siouxsie on repeat, bitches!


Oh, and THIS is not to be missed! Turn your headphones up.


(P.S. How much do you love the genuine smiles on the Obamas faces? You know Michelle is loving the combat boots.)

I love it. The Obamas are clearly loving it too. Would like to learn more about the mom.

Hilarious! Im loving hung... a billion times more interesting than entourage. The season was so short though.

Just awesome.

This is a scream! And goth is not attractive on those girls.

Decorno said...

Are you kidding? They look awesome. I love all the black bracelets and the fact that they seem really suspicious of the camera. I love it 100%.

I miss my old black lace-up boots. Ah, middle school...

Did you see the other photo referenced in the comments section? (The Cameroon Royalty) AWESOME.

It must be a riot meeting all sorts of different people as president. And Michelle is smokin' hot in this photo!

I was those girls!! So Goth. My parents loved me but were so embarrassed. DON"T BE ASHAMED of them prime minister of Spain! Just because they are Goth doesn't mean they won't turn out OK. I don't remember any Goths from Sidwell Friends (I grew up in DC) but it could happen I suppose.

I LOVE IT! And I'm sure the Spanish Prez is totally trying to hide them - Spaniards can be so uptight!!
HAH! Those girls are divine. And the Obamas totally
get them, they are naturally so accepting - maybe they should bring them back here, where they belong! : )

and decorno - can we see one of those photos of you
as a GOTH?

Cote de Texas said...

love this. love the obamas so much it almost hurts! michelle is just too cool. wonder where their own girls were? their little cracks me up - she has such a personality.

Those girls are stunning. I say this with all seriousness. It's so refreshing to see pictures of people actually being who they are and/or who they want to be. Way better than the idiotic Palin crew during the Republican campaign. Oops, did I type that?

Michelle seems like the mom who would be totally cool if her kid went through a minor goth phase. I kind of imagine Michelle buying the kid combat boots and ridiculous baggy pants and thinking that their mohawk is cute or whatever.

Style icon, bitches.

my favorite and my best said...

Check the video on Gawker of Obama's smile never changing thru hundreds of pictures. Real? I think not. Creepy.

I think Goth for young girls 16 and 13 is about having a creative alternative--to not have to display their body and sexuality and social representation of self in Barbie doll mainstream "fashion." Goth lets a young girl control her body and its reveal on her terms. It is liberating. And, let's face it, combat boots make us all feel powerful. (God knows, adolescent girls need all the help to feel powerful that they can get; think eating disorders, etc.) Goth asserts the subversive message: "There's a lot more to me than just my sexy, young female body. I have a young, sexy female body, of course, but that is my business."

"I don't remember any Goths from Sidwell Friends (I grew up in DC) but it could happen I suppose."

Goths at Sidwell Friends! That is breathtaking to contemplate.

Decorno said...

That's pretty brilliant goth analysis.

And goths at Sidwell made me laugh, too. Will someone please bust out the photoshop and send me a gothified Chelsea Clinton, please?

Sonsoles, the spanish PM´s wife, is an opera singer.

And, actually,It´s not that they feel ashame of their children looks, but they just want to protect them from the media, something allowed by the spanish law.Don´t you ever think children are overexposed?

And, by the way, don´t even know why someone said spanish people are uptight

LB said...

I love it! I love that the parents are letting their kids be kids. It's hard enough being a teenager, let alone being the Prime Minister's kids.

Hey, very nice site. I came across this on Google, and I am stoked that I did. I will definitely be coming back here more often. Wish I could add to the conversation and bring a bit more to the table, but am just taking in as much info as I can at the moment. Thanks for sharing.
