Sasha Obama iconic unicorn sell out

The ASOS unicorn sweater the first daughter wore to Sunday’s basketball game is sold out and the brand says it won’t restock. The Obama women are used to turning heads with their classy takes on current trends.

An ASOS unicorn sweater flew off the shelves after fans spotted it on the President’s youngest daughter, Sasha, at a basketball game over the weekend. The black knit was on sale for $18.69 (originally priced $62.29), but quickly sold out.

Fashionistas eager to cop Sasha’s style are begging the brand to bring the sweater back, but ASOS told the Daily News it has no plans to restock.

The 12-year-old wore the cheap-but-chic design while watching a University of Maryland basketball game with her family on Sunday in College Park, Md.

They were there to support Michelle Obama’s brother Craig Robinson, who coaches the opposing men’s team.

The family appears to have a fashion soft spot for ASOS.

The First Lady has been spotted twice in a red-and-white dress from the British brand, a look later copied by both Huma Abedin and Jessica Alba. Sasha wore an ASOS dress to last year’s White House Christmas Tree Lighting — it also sold out.

It’s not uncommon for the Obama women to prompt a rush to the register.

J.Crew pieces the First Lady and her eldest daughter Malia wore during January’s inauguration immediately sold out on the brand’s website. Designers Tracy Reese, Jason Wu and Isabel Toledo also all saw a boost of interest after the First Lady wore their gowns.
