Michelle Obama joined the Prom Challenge by sharing a throwback photo from her prom.

The former first lady joined the #PromChallenge and shared a snap taken when she attended her prom night. The snap shows Michelle sitting on a chair wearing a pink satin gown with thigh-high slit. She paired it with a matching blazer. Her date appears to be wearing a black tuxedo while standing next to her.

“Throwing it back to my 1982 prom night and this pink satin, polka-dotted dress. Join the #PromChallenge with @WhenWeAllVote and @MTV and tell us what your school is doing to register students to vote. You could get a free prom for your school! Learn more:,” she wrote on Twitter

Michelle’s post was flooded with comments and many shared their prom pictures, too. Several also praised the ex-FLOTUS for her fashion.

“Wow! That’s a gorg dress. Esp for 1982! @MichelleObama, my #foreverFirstLady was always about style and grace, and ahead of her times!” @nadineewatson commented.

“Dear Michelle, you are so fabulous! My prom was a few years before yours - we were still hippies. Love you, Mrs. O! #PromChallenge,” @kimmie_cw added.

“Been a Queen since the beginning,” @fabmissem wrote.

Some netizens also noticed Michelle’s thigh-high slit and asked if her mom approved it. One said that her mom would have considered it “half-naked.” A different user shared that her mother was also very conscious of her dress when she attended her prom.

Meanwhile, some joked that they were wondering what Michelle’s date is thinking right now after she posted their photo.

“Wonder what the guy in this photo is thinking right now...” @daviddunn177 commented.

In related news, Melania Trump and Michelle receive different treatment from Fox hosts. A clip shared on Twitter revealed how the anchor from the station mocked Barack Obama’s wife by calling her “Michelle ‘Merchant of Death’ Obama” and “the bitter half of the Obama administration” and praised President Donald Trump’s spouse for being beautiful and spectacular.

There were also different reactions when the FLOTUS and ex-FLOTUS wore sleeveless dresses. Melania was praised because she looked stunning. On the other hand, Michelle caused an uproar, with her critics calling it “inappropriate.” But fashion experts said there is nothing inappropriate when someone bares their arms.
