During the speech, Obama brought his daughters into the spotlight – while simultaneously making all of America cry its eyes out – when he said,

Malia and Sasha, under the strangest of circumstances, you have become two amazing young women, smart and beautiful, but more importantly, kind and thoughtful and full of passion. You wore the burden of years in the spotlight so easily. Of all that I've done in my life, I'm most proud to be your dad.

However, it appears Malia Obama, in particular, really captured the nation's attention, thanks to the stylish ensemble she selected for the occasion.
