CHILD’S PLAY: Upmarket French brand Bonpoint hopes it’s in the running to dress the White House’s smaller residents-to-be for the presidential inauguration ceremony next Tuesday, according to a Bonpoint spokeswoman, who said a day and evening look for each of the Obama daughters have already been delivered to the family. The designs include a balloon-sleeve gray velvet day dress and wool coat for Malia Obama, 10, with a blueberry-hued velvet dress and Bordeaux tweed coat for her little sister Sasha, 7, followed by cotton satin frocks for the evening — in cream for Malia and anthracite gray for Sasha — embroidered with semiprecious stones at the neckline. “We know we’re in competition with a lot of brands, likely most of them American,” said the spokeswoman.
