Why it Works: Bella Thorne

It’s an age-old fashion dilemma: what to wear to the White House Easter Egg Hunt? Bunny ears are a natural choice, but then you've got the Playboy connotation—could be tricky for your host in an election year.

Mickey ears are always a crowdpleaser, given the fact you work for The Mouse, but then self promotion could come off as a little tacky, especially on a religious holiday. Better to go with a dress, you think, but what sort of dress says "positive teen role model" and is still fashiony enough to impress that burgeoning shopaholic Malia? Look to actress Bella Thorne, star of Disney sitcom Shake it Up for the answer.

The Dress:  A mix of "not so innocent" with Vogue fashion assistant, Thorne's body-conscious but tastefully knee-length tank-style sundress remixes the Pantone purple color spectrum, playing off her auburn 'do to dazzling effect.

The Bag: We're not crazy about the material, which seems to have some sort of laminated chocolate bar effect, but the crucial thing to remember is the treasure hunt at hand. Thorne's bag can easily fit a dozen or so presidential pastel eggs, not to mention lip gloss and a lint roller in case Bo gets a little overzealous.

The Shoes: A swathe of zebra print punctuated by a hot pink strap and chunky heel, these Easter shoes may not have been conducive to participating in the tennis and yoga over on the South Lawn, but they would make a cheeky addition to any Bunny Hop.
