Whenever you see an Obama name trending, you’re never quite sure what you’re going to get. Fortunately, in this case it was a sweet surprise courtesy of Sasha Obama’s senior prom.
The former first daughter, and the youngest of former President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, looked absolutely regal in a classic black dress. The teen wore her hair sleek and straight and accessorised the look with simple jewellery — silver hoop earrings and a necklace.
It’s a timeless look, and definitely not one she’ll look back on wondering what she was thinking. The rest of us aren’t as lucky.
Photos of Sasha’s big night show her smiling big alongside her prom date (and possible boyfriend), who has been identified as Chris Milton. Also spotted in the photos were her mother and sister, Malia. It wasn’t clear if the former president was also in attendance.
As the photos made their way around the internet, so did the jokes. Many referenced the Disney Channel movie My Date With The President’s Daughter — which they should totally reboot with one of the Obama sisters, by the way. Others just revelled in the fact that Sasha looked gorgeous and they didn’t have to bless anyone out on Twitter after seeing her name trending.
“Barack and I shook the young man’s hand, snapped a few pictures, and gave our daughter a hug before sending them on their way,” she wrote in the book, according to People. “We took what was perhaps unfair comfort in the knowledge that Malia’s security detail would basically ride the boy’s bumper all the way to the restaurant where they were going for dinner before the dance and would remain on quiet duty throughout the night.”
Let’s hope Sasha’s night went just as smooth.
