Halle Berry has always been known for her natural beauty, so it’s no surprise that she was voted prom queen at her high school. The Bedford High School senior looks absolutely glowing in this black-and-white photo. A young Halle is wearing a glamorous off-the-shoulder gown that is quintessentially 80s. If you look closely, you can see the prom queen’s crown resting on her head.
Despite Halle’s gorgeous outfit, her prom queen title was actually much more dramatic than you’d think. Many of her fellow classmates accused Halle of stuffing the ballot box and rigging the prom election. As a compromise, the school awarded the runner-up a “co-prom-queen” title. To this day, Halle insists the accusations were false. She’s implied the accusations were created to make her, one of the few half-Black students at her school, look bad.
Michael Jackson’s daughter definitely inherited his sense of style. Paris Jackson attended her friend Melissa’s prom looking sharp in a black tux and bold turquoise tie. Paris took color-coordinating to a new level by dying her hair turquoise to match Melissa’s dress. “Only true friends dye their hair to match their gal's prom gown,” she wrote on Instagram back in 2016.
Paris and Melissa attended the Wildwood School prom with a group of their friends, posing for silly photos and having a grand old time. It’s always refreshing to see high schoolers enjoying life without taking themselves too seriously. Life’s short, so might as well dye your hair and have fun.
If you’re the eldest son of superstar athlete LeBron James, people are going to pay attention to every move you make. That didn’t stop Bronny James from having a blast at his junior prom in 2022. Bronny’s mom, Savannah James, helped him get ready for the event. She looks like the proudest, happiest mom ever adjusting his bowtie in this sweet photo.
Bronny went with a unique black-and-blue look that made him stand out from the crowd. His tuxedo jacket featured blue floral embroidery, which he complimented with a simple flower pinned to his lapel. He topped the whole look off with royal blue loafers and hemmed pants. He and his date, Peyton Gelfuso, no doubt turned heads with their stunning prom looks.
Just when you think everything to possibly know about Shane Dawson is out there, he shares his prom photos. He went to his high school prom back in 2006, and you can immediately tell by Shane’s hair. What high school emo boy didn’t have a long shag haircut back in the early 2000s?
Shane rocked his long hair with a standard, slightly oversized suit. The pants are a bit long, but not every high school student had a tailor on hand, right? In classic prom fashion, Shane’s tie perfectly matches the blue of his date’s prom dress. His date looks adorable in a strapless navy blue dress and matching shawl.
Going to prom with your celebrity crush sounds impossible, but it does happen once in a blue moon. Brianna Siciliano got the amazing chance to attend her prom with “Twilight” star Kellan Lutz in 2015. The high schooler snagged her date after a group of her friends started a social media campaign that got Kellan’s attention.
Brianna opened up to the actor about how she was constantly bullied at school, so Kellan helped her one-up her classmates on her special day. Kellan showed up in a simple dark suit that made his date’s blue dress pop. Brianna gushed on social media, tweeting, “I got my dream prom date today. Thank you Kellan for everything (I'm considering this my first-ever date FYI).”
