Carrie Underwood flashed an authentic smile in this sweet prom photo. Before she unleashed her powerhouse voice to the world, she kept her small-town girl charm with her headband and the subtle waves in her hair. Even after she achieved worldwide fame, Carrie has retained her sweet demeanor – it’s just one reason why everyone loves her.
Even here, so many years ago, Carrie looked like America’s sweetheart. Who could have guessed that in just a few short years, everyone in the country would know her name – and not long after that, the world would. Not to mention, her date also looked very dapper in his white suit with black-tipped lapels.
Prom in the UK is relatively new but has been gaining popularity over the past decade or so. Former member of One Direction, Liam Payne, sported his iconic hairstyle for his big night. The group didn’t look ready to pose for the photo, but at least Liam and his date were coordinated with her purple dress and his purple tie.
No doubt this was one last everyday memory before Liam and his future One Direction bandmates left normal life behind. It's funny to think that, at the time, this could have easily been the most exciting thing Liam could have imagined. If only he knew what was just around the corner for him.
Elle Fanning was already a star at the time of this photo, so she knew how to create a jaw-dropping look. If you're thinking that her dress looked like it was made for the red carpet and not for the halls of a high school, that’s because it was.
Elle couldn’t actually go to prom because she had to attend the Cannes Film Festival. Her prom date then flew out to see her and do a photoshoot with her. It’s remarkable that Elle still wanted the experience of prom when she had a red-carpet event to attend. What a memory!
Would you expect anything less from Ashton Kutcher’s prom photo than him being in the center of the dance floor? This guy was made for the limelight. Just look how at home he looks entertaining everyone around him.
It’s unclear if he had a date or not from this photo, but it is clear that he came to have a great time. It looks like he donned the traditional tux but ditched the jacket to get down to dancing. By the way, did you notice that all the on-lookers in this photo just so happen to be girls? Yeah, we bet he was popular in high school, alright.
Youtuber Tana Mongeau was already pretty well-known by the time she headed to prom. Today the internet celebrity has millions of subscribers to her successful YouTube channel. The beauty kept her blonde hair down and let her bi-color black and gold dress steal the show.
Her date also looked great in his grey suit that was accented by a metallic bow tie. The silver and gold contrast is a cool look, but we have to admit that it does not look clear that these two were on the same wavelength. Still, keeping up with Tana must be quite a feat.
