The young girl whose awestruck gaze of former Michelle Obama’s portrait at the National Gallery went viral in a photograph earlier this year decided to dress up as the former first lady for Halloween, WUSA reported.
Reviews were positive for Parker Curry’s outfit, and she even received a thumbs up from Obama, who tweeted “You nailed the look. I love it!”
Parker was 2 when she visited the National Gallery in March. Ben Hines was standing in line behind Parker when he snapped the photo of the girl staring at Amy Sherald’s portrait of Obama and posted it to Facebook.
"Happy Halloween! Can you guess who I am?" Parker tweeted.
You nailed the look, Parker! I love it!!!! ❤️ https://t.co/40CArze8gT— Michelle Obama (@MichelleObama) November 1, 2018
Parker’s mother, Jessica Curry, told CNN it was her daughter’s idea to dress as Obama.
“We asked her a few times, ‘Are you sure?'” Curry told CNN. “‘Yes, I do. I want to be Michelle Obama.'”
Obama met Parker a week after the girl saw the portrait and danced with her.
