At least six girls showed up at my high school prom wearing silky, backless yellow gowns, looking as though they'd just stepped off the How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days set. It was a big year for stealing prom dress ideas from movies and T.V. (the O.C. was happening, too), but then again, is it ever not? There's always amazing prom-spiration to be had from Hollywood--and not just in recent movies and shows. Who doesn't love a good throwback?
We've rounded up our favorite black tie, prom-ish moments to inspire your dress shopping this year. (Personally I'd recommend going with that Kate Hudson dress. It might even be considered "retro" now. Sigh.)
