Michelle Obama wasn't the only one dressed to the teeth today during the inaugural ceremony. The girls were looking just as good in ensembles by J. Crew.

While Michelle has been outspoken in her preference for J. Crew, only her gloves were made by the company today as she wore a dress designed by Isabel Toledo. Malia, 10, and Sasha, 7, have garnered almost as much attention as Mom for their fashion, and Us Magazine reports that J. Crew was understandably thrilled to see the girls in their clothes.

"This being one of the most significant days in history already makes this a momentous occasion - and seeing those beautiful girls come out in our clothes overwhelmed us with gratitude," Jenna Lyons, senior VP of women’s design, said. "There are no words to express the pride we feel....it was an honor and a privilege to even be considered."

While the Obama girls have become public figures, Barack and Michelle have grown increasingly more protective of their young daughters. In one incident on Halloween, Barack got lippy with photographers who were tailing him while he took Sasha trick-or-treating. The new president also expressed some degree of regret over an Access Hollywood piece that featured his daughters.

"I think that we got carried away in the moment," he said. "We wouldn't do it again."
