EXCLUSIVE: Malia Obama shows off toned legs in a high-slit skirt as she enjoys lunch with a pal in West Hollywood – before puffing away on a cigarette behind the wheel of her car
Former first daughter Malia Obama put on a leggy show as she stepped out into West Hollywood this week, wearing a high-slit skirt and a pair of chunky boots.
Barack and Michelle’s 25-year-old eldest daughter was also seen puffing on a cigarette in her car after lunch on Wednesday.
In photos obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com, the Harvard graduate wore an effortlessly chic look, completing it with a white button-down shirt and black leather jacket for her day out.
Slung over her shoulder was a hobo bag that appeared to be made of suede.

Malia stopped by French-inspired restaurant Zinqué for lunch with a friend.
After spending about an hour and a half inside, they were seen saying goodbye before going their separate ways.
Malia’s flirty skirt with a thigh-high slit flowed in the wind and showed off her toned legs as she walked the streets of Los Angeles.
Returning to her car, the copper-haired beauty, who recently underwent a hair transformation, puffed on a cigarette with the driver’s side window open on a rainy day.
The 25-year-old writer and director then stopped at Winston Pies to pick up some pastries.
These latest photos aren’t the first time Malia has been seen smoking in public.
Last month, the former First Daughter enjoyed another smoke break with a friend in LA.
She was dressed for fall in a cozy blue cardigan sweater with a colorful geometric pattern and tailored wide-leg trousers, paired with black lug-sole boots.

Malia, a long-time smoker, had a large bag over her shoulders and a stainless steel water bottle under her arm as she enjoyed a cigarette.
She was standing in a parking lot, next to a black SUV, talking to a friend, who was wearing a plaid blazer, jeans and sneakers.
The former first daughter was fresh-faced, her long rust-colored braids hanging loosely around her shoulders.
Her 22-year-old sister, Sasha, was also photographed smoking in mid-September.
Their father, Barack, has previously admitted to smoking up to ten cigarettes a day and has been very honest about his struggle to quit.

Barack, 62, started smoking as a teenager and famously promised his wife, Michelle, 59, that he would quit before campaigning for president.
In 2009, he admitted during a press conference: ‘As an ex-smoker, I suffer from it all the time.
‘Did I fall off the wagon? Yes. Am I a daily smoker or a constant smoker? No. I don’t do it in front of my kids. I don’t do it in front of my family.
“And you know, I’d say I’m 95 percent healed, but there are times when I mess up.”
In his 2020 memoir, A Promised Land, the former president said that at one point he smoked as many as 10 cigarettes a day.
He credited Malia with helping him quit, writing that seeing her “frown” at him after “smelling it on his breath” made him determined to quit.
