There is nothing understated about Taraji’s prom dress! The future actress selected a dramatic, pink, winged-sleeve dress that sort of wore her, honestly. Nevertheless, this dress needed a big personality to match it, and Taraji was just the person for the job. Taraji manages to crack a smile that looks both sweet and innocent, and also a little sassy.
But, despite the overwhelming dress, Taraji still looks lovely with her angled updo and corsage. Thankfully, as a star, she has honed her style today. We wonder how she feels looking back on this picture and thinking about her past fashion choices.
Though he lacks star quarterback confidence in this photo, Tom Brady still looked like he knew how to properly dress for prom. Or at least his mom did. We don't know the full story. We also don’t know where his suit jacket went, but he at least had the shirt, vest, pants, and bow tie-down.
We hope he had a great date lined up for the prom but, if not, young Tom wouldn’t have to worry as he would later be an NFL quarterback married to Victoria’s Secret model Giselle Bundchen. Granted, like all good things, that would come to an end. But still, that's pretty exciting for a teenager to know!
John Krasinski has come a very long way from the nerdy guy on "The Office" to the leading man he is today. John chose a classic suit and a patterned tie for himself. We can't see who his lovely date is, but we have no doubt that she felt like the belle of the ball with John on her arm.
Underneath the endearing awkwardness of this photo, you can still see that adorable John Krasinski smile. Little did he know that he would come to be universally loved for that quirkiness - but we have a feeling that he secretly wasn't surprised.
Famous beauty YouTuber James Charles (unsurprisingly) had an absolutely flawless face for his prom. Just a few years after launching his makeup channel, James already had millions of subscribers. It's very clearly the mid-2010s judging by the block eyebrows and intense lip. We think there is also something in James' hair, but it's a little unclear from this angle.
Aside from his makeup, he kept his look simple with a classic black suit and bow tie. His date’s bejeweled black dress coordinated well with James' look, and what else would you expect from a bonafide beauty guru? The two looked ready to have a fabulous night!
Comedian Lily Singh has used her family background as rich material for her skits. And here she was full-on representing her Indian heritage for her prom. She's a classic example of how someone can both poke fun at their family's traditions, and still display loud and proud that she'll always have a deep love and reverence for where she came from.
Lily sported a beautiful Fuschia sari, an abundance of bangles, and a bindi on her forehead. The look was completed by complimentary Fuschia-toned jewelry. We didn't get to see what her date wore, but one thing we can be certain of is that their night was full of laughs.
