From the White House to the red carpet. 

Malia Obama, the eldest daughter of former President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama, made her first-ever red carpet appearance at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah Jan. 17. 

The 25-year-old—who wore a long grey coat paired with a blue-striped button-down and black leggings for the occasion—celebrated the premiere of her short film, The Heart. The project, which follows a grieving son whose mother left him with an unusual request in her will, is Malia's directorial debut.

She added, "We hope you enjoy the film and it makes you feel a bit less lonely or at least reminds you not to forget about the people who are."
