Barack Obama, Girl Scouts

Official White House Photo by Pete Souza/Instagram

It must be one of the unwritten traits of being a president: you have to be able to pull off any accessory.

President Barack Obama posed with a Girl Scout troop from Tulsa, Ohio for a group photo, and while these kids are super-cute, no one is looking at them. Nope, your eyes go directly for that sparkly tiara on top of our Commander in Chief's head. 

But what's more shocking about the pic, besides that shiny crown? Obama went back on one of his own rules!

"You don't put stuff on your head if you're president," he famously said last year when he was offered a helmet while visiting the Army and Air Force football teams. Apparently there is an exception to his rule, and we are so happy that his exception involves a tiara.

The picture was posted on the Instagram account for the White House photographer, Pete Souza. Though the photo was taken back in June, this is the first time the world is seeing it in all its glory.

"Still editing 2014 Year in Photos. I may include this one even though it's a posed photo," Souza wrote in the caption. "This is from the annual White House Science Fair. The kids from Girl Scout Troop 2612 in Tulsa, Oklahoma, convinced the President to wear a tiara with them for their group photo."

The White House Science Fair was all about celebrating girls and women in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math. The Girl Scout troop in the photo made a Lego bridge that was completely flood-proof for the Fair.

Thanks for breaking your own rule, Mr. President. We think you are rocking that tiara!
