Michelle Obama isn't the only trendsetter in the family

Sasha Obama is now a trendsetter like her mom. Nearly hours after wearing a black unicorn sweater to a college basketball game, it sold out.

Sasha probably didn’t think wearing a black sweater with a white, purple, pink, teal and yellow unicorn plastered on it would cause an Internet frenzy. Tweens and pre-teens went bananas buying the sweater after 12-year-old Sasha wore it to the Nov. 17 Oregon State Beavers vs. Maryland Terrapins game in College Park, MD. Michelle, Malia and President Obama were also there to watch some good basketball.

The British e-tailer ASOS claims the $45 sweater was sold out within two hours, but it will begin restocking it on Dec. 2.

“After the youngest Obama, Sasha, wore a (sold out, boo) ASOS unicorn jumper to a basketball game … the internet went crazy for it and demanded a re-stock,” reads the ASOS blog. “Set your iCal and keep your eye on the ASOS Twitter feed for more updates. Skippidy-yippidy-unicorn-yay!”

The First Lady herself has been known to sell out designs within minutes. She’s also worn lesser known black designers who get far too little shine. And just like her mama, Sasha has sold out a piece of clothing just by wearing it.
