Malia Obama Is Rocking a New 'Do, and Looks Amazing

It's summertime, and college students are out on vacation across the nation. That includes Malia Obama, who is on break from Harvard. She's spending her vacation in New York City, and was recently spotted on out and about with a new look: braids.

The eldest daughter of former President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle is sporting some sleek, long box braids. The 19-year-old was wearing them swept up in a messy bun, with a few strands hanging loose around her face. As usual, she looks spectacular.

Malia usually wears her hear straight and long, cascading over her shoulders. Sometimes, especially on hot days, she'll sweep it up into a ponytail or into two side braids. She's worn a full head of braids before, but not for quite a while, and not with her hair this long. This new look is stunning, especially with the way she leaves several inches of unbraided, curly locks at the end of each braid falling softly over her shoulders.

You have to wonder if the braids were a nod to her mother, who is a fashion icon in her own right. Michelle Obama recently tweeted a throwback photo from her college days. The focus of her post was remembering how much encouragement and help she got when she first ventured into ivy league education, but viewers of the photo couldn’t help but compliment her on her head of chic braids back then.

Maybe it’s no coincidence, then, that Malia opted for the box braids at her last hairstyle appointment—could her mother have inspired her?

Malia looked like she might have been coming from a workout, or perhaps was on her way to one. She was donning a sports bra with SoulCycle black leggings, showing off her toned midriff. She finished the look with a denim jacket and camel Cat boots. As usual, she looked like she could have just stepped off the pages of a fashion magazine.

NYC seems to be near and dear to Malia's heart; she keeps returning to the city whenever she gets a chance. She spent her gap year between high school and college interning in New York, and has been spotted taking trips there occasionally ever since. In January she was spotted with her college boyfriend, Rory Farquharson. The two were getting pretty cozy in the winter weather.

The two were first spotted together in the fall at a college tailgating party. Someone couldn’t help but notice Malia and the handsome young man flirting, sharing a smoke, and making out when they thought no one was looking. Unfortunately for them, someone was watching—and had a camera with them.

The photos of Malia’s mystery college boyfriend went viral, so by the time winter rolled around, there was nothing left for the couple to care about. The cat was long out of the bag.

Right now, though, Farquhar doesn’t appear to be anywhere near Malia. Perhaps he headed back to England, his home country, to visit with his own family. Maybe they’ll meet up later this summer, or maybe after some time off with their family they’ll get back together when school starts up again in the fall.
