Prom is a big deal for any high schooler, but Sayeed Shahidi kicked it up a notch for his 2019 prom. He attended the big event with his high school sweetheart, actress Storm Reid, on his arm, and they both looked stunning. Sayeed went for a classic look in a black-and-white tux with some special detailing.
Unlike most high schoolers, Sayeed showed up in some serious designer threads. He looked sharper than a razor in a Brooks Brothers tuxedo and J.Crew accessories. To top it all off, he wore a custom-embroidered pocket square that read “S & S Prom ‘19.” How cute is that? He definitely turned heads when he showed up to prom with Storm, who wore a pink Tory Burch gown.
About this blast from the past, Jimmy Fallon said, “My date didn’t tell me she was getting tan and high heels for the prom. Standing next to her, I looked so pale and so small.” We hate to agree, but he does, in fact, look a little underwhelming compared to his lovely date.
It’s always a good idea to coordinate with your prom date, but this planning mishap surely made for an unforgettable photo! At the very least, his boutonniere matches his date's corsage, so they've got that going for them. Poor Jimmy, though he's grown into himself quite a bit since then.
Before he was the President of the United States in “Scandal,” Tony Goldwyn was just your average cutie going to prom. He shared this 70s-era prom photo on his Instagram, further proving that he’s always been a heartthrob. The young soon-to-be actor cleaned up for prom with a classic black suit and tie.
Even though Tony went to prom in the 70s, he looks completely modern and classic. He has a white carnation pinned to his lapel to match the outfit of his date, Rosie. And don’t get us started on that hair! That shaggy haircut might make Tony look totally different, but that smile is still the same.
Showing up to prom on the arm of a celebrity sounds like something straight out of a romantic comedy. But it actually happened to this lucky guy named Richard. He got to take none other than Rihanna to prom! Riri participated in the MTV special “Once Upon a Prom” in 2007 and picked Richard out of a ton of other guys to be her prom date.
Richard was so star-struck by Rihanna’s beauty that he literally couldn’t function. We don’t blame him. She looks absolutely stunning in her sleek blue prom dress and simple makeup. The two had a blast at prom, dancing the night away and posing for pictures.
Harry was already a teen heartthrob by the time he went to prom, so this girl got to live every young girl’s dream. Harry and his date look absolutely adorable, 2010s-era Instagram filters aside. Harry rocked his signature shaggy hair while wearing a classic black tux. His date wore a super cute off-the-shoulder prom dress and a fancy updo.
Harry went on to reach superstardom beyond belief, but he never forgot his prom date. The two reunited backstage at a 2015 One Direction concert and snapped the photo on the right. It’s sweet to see that Harry is still friends with the people he knew in the early days of his fame.
