    Default Prom queen Michelle Obama poses with her first love

    She has established herself as the First Lady of fashion and has graced the cover of Vogue.
    But long before arriving at the White House Michelle Obama was already putting on the style.
    In a shimmering low-cut silk dress slashed to the thigh, the then 18-year-old Michelle Robinson posed with her first boyfriend at the High School Prom.


    High school sweethearts: First Lady Michelle Obama with David Upchurch before the 1984 Whitney M Young High School prom in Chicago, Illinois

    More than a quarter of a century since that night, David Upchurch still has fond memories of escorting Michelle to the dance at the Whitney M Young High School in Chicago, which they both attended.
    While he looked a little uncomfortable in the black tie, Michelle seemed relaxed sitting in a wicker chair as she posed for the keepsake photograph.
    Her revealing dress choice, daring for a soon-to-be college student, was perhapsan indication that she would always stand out.
    Over 25 years since that night Upchurch still has fond memories of escorting Michelle to the dance.
    They had both attended the Whitney M Young High School in Chicago, Illinois, and had been going out for almost a year and a half when the time came to escort her to the prom.

    Darling of the dance floor: Barack Obama takes Michelle, now his wife of 17 years, for a spin at one of the 10 balls they visited on inauguration night

    Back then, he recalls Michelle exhibited the drive that would take her from a rough Chicago neighbourhood to Harvard University and on to a law career where she would later meet her husband, Barack Obama.

    He's still got the moustache: David Upchurch outside his home in Colorado Springs. 'Barack Obama's a lucky man,' he said

    David said: 'I grew up with Michelle and her brother Craig. We were neighbours, and our families were close.
    'When Michelle was in the middle of her junior year, we began dating and continued to date for a year-and-a-half.
    He says he can't even remember if he received a goodnight kiss after the prom.
    The romance ended when Michelle went off to Princeton to study sociology.
    'Michelle knew what she wanted and after graduation she was off to Princeton University. I couldn't stand in her way.'
    Perhaps mindful that her husband is the President, David refuses to 'kiss and tell' about their time together.
    David, a customer sales rep, has only fond memories of his time with Michelle, who he knew by her maiden name of Michelle Robinson.
    'I wished the best for Michelle because she has always been a wonderful person,' he said.
    'I always knew Michelle was special and would make a difference in the world.'

    Michelle would later meet Barack at the Chicago law firm of Sidney and Austin when she assigned to mentor him while he was a summer associate.
    After a two-year romance they were married in 1992. David, a divorced father-of-three from Colorado Springs, Colorado, says he finds it hard to believe his prom date ended up in the White House.
    'I cannot tell you how proud I am of her and her husband. I have never met Barack, but I have to say, he is a very lucky man,' he said.

    David seems like a nice enough guy, but Michelle definately traded up in the looks department.

    As soon as Obama became president and Michelle became First Lady it was only a matter of time before one of their exes popped up.

    Nope, no sparkles in my wardrobe. There's plenty of pageant prostitots that wear enough sparkles to last us til the new millenium.

    Wow, those wicker chairs look exactly the same.

    Prom date reminds me of Isaac from the Love Boat.
