At first glance, this looks like Reese Witherspoon’s look-alike daughter, Ava. But if you study the photo closely, you can see a very young Reese. It’s a bit of a challenge to see from the black and white photo exactly what her prom look was, but it looks like she chose to keep her dress, hair, and jewelry simple and beautiful.
What is incredibly clear from the photo is that Reese has barely aged, and her elegant class has stayed the same through the years. We mean, the fact that even now she’s constantly confused with her daughter is pretty impressive.
Brad Pitt chose an unconventional grey suit and tie for his prom back in the 80s. And underneath his almost mullet hairstyle, you can still see the makings of People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive. You can also be sure it was the 80s thanks to Pitt and his date's hairstyles - they state loud and proud just which decade those locks belonged to.
As for his date, she chose a white dress that, at first glance, makes this look like a wedding photo shoot. Today she must be star-struck looking back at this photo. This lucky lady was actually one of Brad's first loves and his high school sweetheart. That's a fun story to share!
Here we have one of the most legendary acting icons in Hollywood today - Meryl Streep. Fans know that Meryl doesn’t do any of her performances halfway and, years ago, she even went all out for prom! Bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, and full of youth, Meryl was glowing at her prom in 1967.
This was a good few years before Meryl's screen debut, but it was clear that she had that star quality from the start. While managing to let her natural beauty shine through, she chose a graceful dress that included arm-length gloves. Meryl is certainly sporting a '60s debutante look here, but it looks lovely on her -- and so does her date.
Long before "A Star Is Born," Lady Gaga was your average New Yorker, and she went by her given name, Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta (well, maybe not the full thing). But, can you spot Lady Gaga in this photo? We’ll give you a hint; she favored the “bronzed” look.
Though she is super tan, Lady Gaga still looks striking in her aqua blue dress, simple updo, and pretty corsage. Compared to what she wears today, this is a rather understated look. Can we just take a moment to acknowledge the spectrum of dresses in this picture and early 2000s prom looks? Whether you're wearing a cocktail dress or a ball gown, there was a dress for everyone.
Before she was a member of Destiny's Child and later an iconic solo artist, Beyoncé was simply the daughter of a small-town preacher from Texas. She went to the event with her longtime boyfriend (who, apparently, later made a horrible mistake and cheated on her). Beyoncé rocked a halter-neck dress with cut-outs and a funky colorful pattern.
Her hair, makeup, and jewelry are also flawless, as you would expect. But Beyoncé, who clearly would even look beautiful in a potato sack, looked like she was enjoying this night. Little did she know the bright future ahead of her, and we’re pretty sure her date is counting his losses now.
