Instead of me trying to post all of them here is my favourite by @its_allry,” Hudson wrote sharing the pictures.

The images were first shared on Ryleigh’s personal Instagram account, which is managed by her mother. The profile has many images of the little model recreating iconic looks by eminent personalities, including US Vice-President Kamala Harris.

“We absolutely loved the Obamas’ look for the inauguration,” said Hampton. “We are so happy we were able to recreate such an iconic look and to have Michelle and Barack Obama be such great role models for Zayden and Ryleigh,” she added.


“It had been a while since Michelle Obama had been in the public eye, so when we saw her and her outfit we literally gasped,” said told WKRG. “My mother, who had just done a Kamala Harris and Prince photoshoot for Ryleigh, thought this would be an amazing idea,” she added explaining the idea behind the photoshoot.

The photos struck a chord with many online as Obama gave them a shout out with many saying that they have been inspiring new generation.
