Malia celebrated another milestone earlier this year—she graduated high school. Unlike many of her fellow graduates, she will not be starting college in the fall; The White House revealed a couple of months ago Malia plans to take a gap year. She has, however, been accepted to college—Harvard University, no less, and will begin her studies in fall of 2017.

Over the years, Malia has showcased poise and grace while appearing with her high-profile family in public, and like her mother, has also worn a variety of stylish looks.
