Obama Caves To Girl Scout Lobby, Wears Tiara In Photo

President Barack Obama eschewed one of his self-professed rules of the job for a Girl Scout troop earlier this year.

Ignoring his own stern warning to not "put stuff on your head if you’re president," Obama donned a tiara while posing for a photo with Girl Scout Troop 2612, of Tulsa, Oklahoma. White House photographer Pete Souza shared the photo for the first time on Wednesday.

"Still editing 2014 Year in Photos. I may include this one even though it's a posed photo," Souza said on Instagram. "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 girls had exhibited a Lego flood proof bridge project."

The White House Science Fair took place in June, and focused on girls and women in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) fields who are inspiring the next generation of scientists.
