From a Monday White House pool report from out of Tanzania, where the first family is visiting:

President Obama and the first lady arrived at the State House in Dar es Salaam at 3:30 p.m. local time. There, they received an elaborate welcome. A long red carpet covered their path from the front gates to the sprawling white State House. ...

Most of the local residents were outfitted in the same ensemble: a white or navy polo shirt and white baseball cap with Obama's likeness adorning each. The women and girls also wore a patterned fabric with Obama's face on it as a skirt or a dress. The effect was that many of the females had Obama's smiling face on their back sides.
