Shopping for the ideal statement-making prom dress-- one that looks fierce, feels comfortable (enough), photographs well, and won’t reveal everything while you’re getting out of your stretch limo-- can make you feel overwhelmed and probably not unlike a celebrity prepping for a red carpet moment. To help define your prom style, how about picking a celeb whose style you admire, and using them for fashion inspiration?
