MOVIE INSPIRATION: PROM

Hi lovelies! Yes, it's early, but even now I've started seeing Prom dresses up in the windows of shops and while I'm too old now to have a prom (sob), as a Beauty Therapist/ Makeup Artist, I know that lots of girls start thinking of Proms very early. Makeup, hair and beauty treatments are booked well in advance, dresses and accessories are bought months before the big day etc.. 

Today I wanted to share a few of my favourite Prom dresses from some super cheesy movies, just to give a little inspiration to those thinking about Proms, weddings or other big events!
 For something really classic, I loved Brittany Snow's dress in 'Prom Night'. Yes, it's a horror movie, and not a very good one at that, but there were some seriously pretty dresses in that movie! I love the gold dress she wore as it's so simple, but so pretty and quite a statement colour.

Mega cheese alert, but who can forget Vanessa Hudgens dress in the 'High School Musical' prom?! Super unique and definitely not traditional, I think it's fab to sometimes choose a dress that will be entirely different to anything anyone else is wearing. I think I was too scared to wear something too 'out there' for my prom at school and I do sometimes wish I did. You get this night once, choose wisely!

Hillary Duff's Prom outfit in 'A Cinderella Story' is one of my all time favourites, the gorgeous white gown is a little bit more wedding than prom, but if you want to stand out from the crowd, this is definitely the way to do it!


Unfortunately, one of the things I got so wrong at my Prom (I was only 16!!) were the accessories. I picked a pink dress with deep pink jewels, which made it super hard to accessorize, so I ended up with a bag and shoes that I never wore again. I think if you go for a simple dress, or a statement dress with easy colours, like silver gems so you can easily tie in accessories. I think if I were to do Prom again, I'd go for a fairly plain, simple and elegant dress, with lots of beautiful jewellery and accessories. I found all of the above at New Look in their Occasion Wear section and I think they're gorgeous!

Have you got a prom or special occasion coming up? What will you be wearing?

  1. I was obsessed with Hilary Duff's dress and my friend had a similar one at my prom. I wore a dress similar to the gold one Kate Hudson wore in How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, love that dress! xx
