The Girl Scouts succeeded in 2014 where the U.S. Navy failed — at getting President Obama to break his rule against wearing head gear.

Mr. Obama has said that its “politics 101” that the commander in chief never looks good wearing things on his head, but he donned a tiara for the Girl Scouts earlier in the year.

“Still editing 2014 Year in Photos. I may include this one even though it’s a posed photo,” Chief White House photographer Pete Souza said on Instagram on Wednesday. “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.”

ABC News reported Thursday that the U.S. Naval Academy’s football team attempted to get Mr. Obama to wear a custom-fit helmet when they accepted the Commander In Chief Trophy earlier this year, but he declined. The team received the trophy for defeating its Army and Air Force rivals.
