Malia Obama looked like she was ready to hit the gym in a sports bra and matching leggings as she grabbed lunch with a mystery man in Los Angeles on Tuesday.
The screenwriter, who is the oldest daughter of former President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, topped off her sporty look with a long-sleeve shrug, ankle socks, and white New Balance sneakers.
Malia, 24, and her pal were spotted picking up takeout before leaving in her car. She carried a small black canvas bag and her cellphone in one hand and her car keys in the other.

Her long rust-colored braids were worn half-up in a messy bun with a few tendrils framing her face. Her companion enjoyed a cigarette during the walk, and while she is a known smoker, she didn’t partake.
Malia’s friend was also dressed casually in a T-shirt, baggy green pants, and Birkenstocks. Like the former first daughter, he opted to carry his cellphone in his hands along with a charger.
The two were seen chatting as they walked side by side. It’s unclear if she had the day off from work or was just grabbing lunch during an afternoon break.
Malia’s latest outing comes just a few days after she was spotted on a walk with a friend wearing the exact same outfit paired with different sneakers.
She moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career as a screenwriter after graduating from Harvard University last year. She scored a lucrative position working on Donald Glover’s upcoming Amazon show about ‘a Beyoncé-type character.’

Glover, who is also known by his stage name Childish Gambino, confirmed in March that he gave the former first daughter her first job writing for the series, which is tentatively titled ‘Hive.’
‘She’s just like, an amazingly talented person,’ he told Vanity Fair of Malia. ‘She’s really focused, and she’s working really hard.’
Glover did not reveal how Malia — who interned on Lena Dunham’s HBO series ‘Girls’ in 2015 and at The Weinstein Company in 2017 — landed the job, but he added that he believes she has a promising future in the industry.
Since moving to Los Angeles, Malia has been living in Brentwood, an affluent neighborhood on the city’s Westside.
She has been spotted strolling around her new neighborhood and dining with friends at local restaurants on numerous occasions.

When Malia celebrated her 24th birthday on July 4, she received heartwarming tributes from both of her parents.
‘No matter how sophisticated, accomplished, beautiful, and gracious a young woman you’ve become — you’ll always be my baby. And I will always be here to lift you up,’ the former president tweeted along with a picture of himself holding Malia when she was a baby.
Mrs. Obama shared her own snapshot with a young Malia as she, too, touted her support for her oldest daughter.
‘Happy birthday, Malia — and Happy Fourth of July, everybody,’ she tweeted. ‘Twenty-four years ago, this day became extra special when your wonderful spirit arrived in this world.
‘I’m so proud of the beautiful, caring, and driven young woman you’ve become. I love you so, so much! Love, your Mommy.’

While Malia is working as a screenwriter, her younger sister, Sasha, 21, is also building her own life in Los Angeles. She is reportedly a student at the University of Southern California after transferring from the University of Michigan.
The two sisters have been spotted out together, along with Sasha’s boyfriend, Clifton Powell Jr., 24, who is the son of Ray actor Clifton Powell.
Malia’s relationship status is unclear following her move to Los Angeles.
She started dating Rory Farquharson — the son of Charles Farquharson, the CEO of Insight Investment Management Limited Charles — in 2017 while they were both students at Harvard University.
However, whether she and Rory are still together is unknown, as she has never publicly addressed her relationship status.
