Sasha and Malia Obama went to their first state dinner on Thursday night, as their dad (aka the president) welcomed Canadian Prime Minister/certified hottie Justin Trudeau to the White House.

All eyes were on the first daughters, who were invited to sit at the grown-ups' table for the very first time. Not missing her chance, Malia rocked a strapless gown and swept her hair to one side, looking like she belonged on a Hollywood red carpet.


Trudeau even dedicated part of his speech to the Obama girls, saying how touched he was to meet Malia and Sasha.

"Quite frankly, the memories for me of being a kid and not being old enough to attend these kinds of events with my father almost makes me wish I had gone through my teenage years as a child of a world leader," Trudeau said. "But not quite."

"I admire you very much, both of you, for your extraordinary strength and your grace, through what is a remarkable childhood and young adulthood that will give you extraordinary strength and wisdom beyond your years for the rest of your life," he said.
