There are some trends that never really go away – and Hollywood’s perennial preocupation with the prom dress is one of them. A style staple for many a curvy girl in Lala Land, the classic full skirted frock is as much a part of the modern starlet’s wardrobe as it was for the original silver screen goddesses – and for very good reason!
Stars including Carey Mulligan, Kelly Brook and Michelle Williams are all fans of its timeless glamour, uber flattering length and curve enhancing cut, which makes the prom dress the ultimate go-to garment for any red carpet event.
Fancy testing this fashion stalwart yourself? Simply stick to the three ‘Rules of Prom’:Number One: Wear with heels – no arguments! Number Two: Don’t even consider carrying anything other than a clutch bag. Number Three: Add a belt to emphasise your waist.
Could it be any simpler? We think not. Now go forth and unleash your inner 50s screen goddess… and don’t forget to perfect your Mad Men wiggle on the way!
