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.
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.
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.
Before RuPaul became the Queen of Drag, he was just RuPaul Andre Charles from Northside High in Atlanta, Georgia. However, this 1983 prom photo of Ru just goes to show that he’s always known how to serve face and dress to impress. Just look at his perfectly contoured cheekbones, bold eyeshadow, and dangling earring.
RuPaul rocked his high school prom with a long tuxedo jacket, pinstripe pants, and colorful dress shoes. His date, Deborah Kampeier, looks equally stunning in a knee-length white dress that’s giving romantic hippie vibes. Can we retroactively vote Ru and Deborah as the “best dressed” couple at their prom?
Before Terry Crews was the tough-but-lovable actor from “Brooklyn Nine-Nine”, he was just an adorable young man who pulled out all the stops for his prom date. Terry posted this throwback photo on Twitter to reminisce on prom days past.
For whatever reason, his high school prom decided to stage this awkward photo-op with 6-foot Terry towering over his beautiful date. Despite the weird photo-op, the two look really sweet. A fresh-faced Terry is beaming in his classic tuxedo get-up with a coordinating light pink bowtie and cumberbund. “I finally grew into my hands and feet!” he joked on Twitter.
