Michelle and Barack Obama in the East Room of the White House in 2014

In 2009, when Barack Obama was sworn in as the 44th President of the United States, Studio 360 asked some of our favorite artists what they wanted to see from his presidency — and now, eight years later, we reconnect with one of them. Cintra Wilson is a writer whose work has appeared in Slate, GQ, and The New York Times. Her 2015 book, ”Fear and Clothing,”  is an anthropological examination of regional American style and expression. Cintra talks about Obama’s dad jeans and why, eight years later, she still can’t stop gushing about the Obamas.
