Kelly Slater may be one of the world’s most famous surfers, but that doesn’t mean he’s immune to embarrassing photos from his past. The surfer posted this flashback of when he attended his high school prom in 1991 with his friend Meghan White. The two look so young, so cute, and so of the time. The 90s might be back in style, but let’s not bring Kelly’s look back, okay?
Kelly, as always, is able to approach his prom look with self-deprecating humor. “How sick is my suit, shiny and about 3 sizes too big?!” he wrote on Instagram. There’s no denying that Kelly’s suit is quintessentially retro-chic. Regardless of what they’re wearing, the two look like they’re having a blast.
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.
So many girls dream of having the perfect prom, and Bella Thorne was lucky enough to have her moment. She was absolutely over the moon to attend prom with her date, Tristan Klier. “Finally had a prom slow dance,” Bella wrote when she posted this romantic photo on Instagram.
This candid shot shows just how happy Bella was to get her perfect prom moment. She wore her hair in a simple but chic ponytail with wispy bangs. For her outfit, Bella wore a jewel-encrusted prom gown by famous dress designer Sherri Hill. Bella was such a big fan that she modeled the label’s Spring 2014 collection before she made her prom debut.
Many of us like to look back and chuckle at our high school fashion, but actress Robin Wright simply can’t do that. She showed up to her prom looking absolutely beautiful and timeless. If only we could all be so lucky! This 1981 photo shows a young Robin wearing a strapless black dress, a classic pearl necklace, and a subtle crown.
This prom look is so stunning that it could easily be worn today. Honestly, it’s unfair to look this good in a high school prom photo. Considering how gorgeous Robin is, it’s really no surprise that she was voted homecoming queen at her La Jolla, California, high school the same year.
No one is above a cheesy prom photo. Not even Jeremy Renner. He posted this #tbt a few years ago and reflected on his prom fashion faux pas from the 80s. Simply put: it’s amazing. First off, Jeremy is absolutely rocking that white tux and light pink accents in the bowtie, boutonniere, and pocket square. We love a king who knows how to coordinate.
Then, to top off the whole look, Jeremy is looking unashamedly fresh with a fabulous mullet. His haircut is the true definition of “business in the front, party in the back.” All jokes aside, Jeremy looks absolutely adorable, and we’d be honored to go to prom with him. “Glad this tux was a rental,” he told Twitter. Don’t be so hard on yourself, Jeremy. It was fashionable at the time.
