Little girl obsessed with Michelle Obama dressed as her portrait for Halloween
A little girl's dream comes true as she poses in a dress just like Michelle Obama's.
In March 2018 the Internet was entranced with a picture taken of a little girl gazing, mesmerized, at Michelle Obama's portrait in the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C., reported Buzz Feed on November 1, 2018.
Her photograph went viral and the little girl - a 3-year-old called Parker Curry - got to meet Mrs. Obama in person in April and the two got to dance together to Taylor Swift.
On Halloween Parker got to emulate her idol and wear a dress just like the one Michele Obama posed in for her portrait.
“In the world we live in today, I’m just trying to raise a little girl who has opportunities to see women who look like her doing great things.”

PARKER'S DREAM WAS TO DRESS LIKE MICHELLE
Little Parker told her mother, Jessica Curry, that she wanted to dress like Michelle Obama for Halloween. Curry was astounded. She thought Parker would pick a cartoon character like Elsa from "Frozen" or one of the ever-popular Disney Princesses.
But Parker knew what she wanted. ‘I want to be Michelle Obama,’ she told her mother. Curry started wondering how she would manage to duplicate Obama's famous dress, and then she had an idea.

A BESPOKE PRESIDENTIAL DRESS FOR PARKER
When Parker's photo had first gone viral, Alisha Welsh, who heads a children's wear company called Magnolia Lake had offered to make Parker an Obama dress, and Curry decided to take her up on it.

TALKING ABOUT PRESIDENTIAL DRESS-UP...
The irreverent comedian and host of the "The Tonight Show" Jimmy Fallon had a brilliant suggestion for President Donald Trump's Halloween costume.
Falloon did a spoof of the president dressed up as a vampire, “Count Trumpula,” of course - and revealed the POTUS' vampiric characteristics to the nation.
“Dracula’s a terrific person, he’s a great guy. I love his style. He wears a cape, which is basically a giant tie for your back.”
Fallon's Trumpula is an unusual vampire, whose coffin is a giant tanning bed. The Count explained that he loves Halloween because is a time when everyone eats only candy - just like him.
Fallon did not reveal what his own Halloween costume would be, Perhaps something presidential?
