Spain’s first family or the Addams family?

Spanish prime minister’s gothic daughters meet the Obamas

The Spanish prime minister has always tried to keep his daughters out of the public eye, and perhaps now we know why!


Jois Luis Rodriguez Zapatero’s daughters, Laura, 16, and Alba, 13, clearly insisted on keeping their goth style when they were pictured with President Obama and his wife Michelle in heavy eyeliner, Doc Martin boots and lots of black.

The photos, taken at the Museum of Modern Art where the Obamas were hosting a dinner, seemed to cause a stir as the Spanish office were keen to delete the snaps from the White House Flickr online gallery.


It’s nice to know even prime minister’s children aren’t exempt from going through tricky teenage phases while growing up!
