Sasha Obama looks stunning in classic black gown as she poses with her date at high school prom

Former U.S. President Barack Obama's daughter Sasha attended her high school prom on Friday and photos from the event are causing quite a stir. 

The 17-year old looked elegant in a classic black dress as she posed for pictures ahead of her graduation from Sidwell Friends High School in Washington next month.

According to Daily Mail, her date for the evening, Chris Milton, looked equally dapper and the pair were the talking point on social media.

"Stunning", "amazing!" and "divine" were some of the heart-warming responses that Sasha received online.

A Twitter user who couldn't believe how grown up Sasha was, commented, "That’s Sasha Obama?! Wow, stunningly beautiful! And because she’s President Obama and Mrs. Obama’s daughter, I’m sure she’s brilliant too!" she said.

While her mom Michelle Obama and her older sister Malia were also present at the prom, there were no signs of the 44th U.S. President who has a well-documented history of making tongue-in-cheek threats towards his daughters' partners. 

Milton was commended on social media for mustering up the courage for asking Sasha out for the prom. There were also jokes about the family's secret security detail keeping a close watch on him.

One of the tweets read: “Can we just appreciate the absolute guts this kid must have had during the ‘dad talk’ with Barack.”

Obama had shot a warning to boys seeking to date his daughters saying the girls have 'secret security details'.

He had warned the Jonas Brothers in 2010 as well. "Don't get any ideas, boys," he has said during a speech at the White Houses Association Dinner. "I have two words for you: Predator Drones."

According to WDCG, however, Obama had insisted that he was pretty relaxed when it came to his daughters' love lives. "The truth is, I’m quite relaxed about it for two reasons," he said. "One is Michelle — she’s such a great example of how she carries herself, her self-esteem, not depending on boys to validate how you look or not letting yourself be judged by anything other than your character and intelligence. Hopefully, I’ve been a good example in terms of how I show respect to my wife."

Sasha is set to attend the University of Michigan in 2021 after taking a year's break. Previously, she had turned down an opportunity to attend an Ivy League school.

Sasha was just seven years old when her father won the 2008 presidential election and took office.
