The former president’s eldest daughter, Malia Obama, was spotted in an African-inspired braid and a sporty outfit on the streets of New York City.


Malia had been enjoying her time at the Big Apple since she had just spent an entire year studying at Harvard. Now that she is officially on summer vacation, she wasted no time and has been out and about since.

Harper’s Bazaar shared that the 19-year-old was previously seen on the streets of NYC donning a denim jacket with just a black sports bra underneath plus tight black Soulcycle leggings to match. For her shoes, she was wearing tan-colored boots.

From the looks of it, she may have been headed to or just left a workout class at the time


Although, what caught the public’s attention was her hairstyle. She had her long hair braided for the summer and pulled it back into a half-up bun. The ends of each braid were styled in wavy curls, giving the style a unique and extra touch.

She also had two braids left loose around her face that added a boost of the summer vibe.


This wouldn’t be the first time that Malia wore braids in public, but it still remains fresh in the eyes of many since she usually wears her hair in her signature straight-wavy style.

According to the media outlet, Malia was also seen in New York City in January 2018, together with a fellow Harvard student named Rory Farquharson, who is speculated to be her boyfriend.


As for her academics, before she enrolled for freshman year in Harvard, the eldest daughter of the former president took a gap year and spent her time getting involved in various internship programs related to film and television production

It has been reported that she worked on the set of Girls from HBO and also worked with the now-discredited Weinstein Company.

After this summer vacation, Malia will be going back to Harvard to start her sophomore year. For more info about the Obamas, visit our Twitter account, @amomama_usa.
