Talk about a Throwback Thursday.

Time magazine has gotten a hold of some exclusive pictures of a 17-year-old Barack Obama at his senior prom in 1979–and they are pretty “foxy.”

Obama’s former schoolmate at Punahou School in Hawaii, Kelli Allman, shared the photos of the teenage Obama, his date, and Allman and her date, all bedecked in Hawaiian leis and ’70s fashion. The president wore a white blazer.

Allman also shared with Time the note Obama left her in her yearbook that year, which was signed “Love, Barry Obama.”
