Malia Obama headed to work Tuesday sporting a casual look and an eye-popping hemline.
The former first daughter was spotted heading to The Weinstein Company in New York City where she is completing her internship with Oscar-winning producer Harvey Weinstein, the Daily Mail reported.

@DailyMail she forgot something…

Collective eyebrows were raised on social media as users questioned the use of the word “dress” for Obama’s attire.
@DailyMail a dress? seriously? that’s a shirt.

The warmer temperatures in Manhattan apparently inspired the 18 year-old to scrap her pants for the day as she wore a cap-sleeved denim shirtdress that buttoned up the front. On her feet she wore a pair of black Chuck Taylor Converse shoes and she carried the same brown leather backpack she has been sporting for a few months.

Maybe her dangerously high hemline was acceptable in the Big Apple where temperatures reportedly reached the 70’s, making it the hottest day of the year so far.

Obama, who did not appear to have any Secret Service detail with her, will be completing her internship in a few weeks and heading back to Washington D.C. where her parents, former President Barack Obama and wife Michelle, are residing until Malia’s younger sister Sasha graduates high school at Sidwell Friends School.
She will then head up north to begin her freshman year of college at Harvard.
The young Obama has relatively stayed out of the spotlight since leaving the White House, though she joined a rally in January protesting President Donald Trump’s plan to revive the Dakota Access pipeline project.
She joined a group of about 100 people in the cold and snow at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah to protest. Later that day, she attended a private event with Standing Rock Sioux Chairman Dave Archambault who had praised her father for putting a stop to the four-state oil pipeline. Trump signed an executive order to move on with the project on January 24.
Many Twitter users were not thrilled with Obama’s choice of “work” clothing on this day in New York City while others thought the media needed to “leave her alone.”
@DailyMail I see, dressing for success.

@DailyMail So where does she ‘work’ that a shirt & tennies are acceptable dress code? Is this like a Chelsea ‘job’????

@DailyMail Why are you following this woman? Just leave her alone.

@DailyMail A short sleeve denim shirt dress. She looks fine. She needs permission to decide what she’s going to wear? Leave her alone.

Some simply wondered why it was necessary to report Malia Obama’s fashion at all.
The most uninteresting news is when the media takes pictures of Malia Obama dressed up going somewhere.
