Celebrity Prom Dresses 2010

Looking for the perfect dress to wear to prom? Give your brain a rest and steal inspiration from celebs who top the best-dressed lists all the time! Just scroll through the image gallery, and look for the corresponding star/style blurb below. Don’t forget to leave your comment on your fave look!



Star: Amanda Bynes
Style: Super sexy
Bravery is needed to wear this bandage dress, but if you can rock it it's totally flattering and super-sexy. Try an unusual color, like Amanda's hot pink, for added shock-value.


Star: Beyonce
Style: Little black dress
This black minidress manages to make ruffles look edgy – maybe it’s the length? Make sure your dress is a wee bit longer than Beyonce's, so you can sit down when you get you tired of dancing!


Star: Carrie Underwood
Style: Long & lean
No need for a ton of jewelry when your gown comes with built-in bling, like Carrie's belt. Go for a simple column shape in a bright color and let your sparkle turn heads!


Star: Dakota Fanning
Style: Short & sweet
Dakota’s short, strapless dress has some pretty cool pleating that makes it unique. Look for a cocktail dress with architectural elements if you want to make a super-trendy statement on your big night!


Star: Demi Lovato
Style: Form fitting
Demi's bandage dress hugs her in all the right places. Go for a style like this if you want to highlight a small waist and curvy frame.


Star: Hayden Panettiere
Style: Clean & classic
If you're so over the poofy tutu look, try a sleek dress like Hayden's! The slit and metal strap are supersexy, yet still ladylike.


Star: Jordin Sparks
Style: Racy red
The little red dress is a classic prom look. A sweetheart neckline and flowing shape like Jordin's enhance her curves and play up her bronze skin!


Star: Katy Perry
Style: Flower flirt
Katy always looks adorable and unique, and this strapless, confetti frock proves just that! To find a dress that no one else will have, scour thrift stores and eBay. You'll probably even spend less than you would at a mass retailer.


Star: Lauren Conrad
Style: Sassy sequins
Show off toned arms and legs in a short, sleeveless dress like Lauren’s. All-over sparkle in a dark color, like this hunter green, makes for a totally glam but still super-fun look!


Star: Lea Michele
Style: Form fitting
As Glee's number #1 belter, Lea loves to stand out. Take a cue from her and rock a form-fitting turquoise dress to prom! And how cute are those cap sleeves? Prom doesn't have to mean big and poufy!


Star: Rumer Willis
Style: Drama queen
Rumer's dramatic and sexy yet classic dress looks amazing on her tiny frame. The cinched waist and slightly flared skirt at the bottom also make her look much taller.


Star: Selena Gomez
Style: Short & shiny
Prom is your time to shine, so you might as well go all out in a major metallic dress like Selena's! Just be sure to keep it short (and the accessories simple) so you don't look like a walking disco ball!


Star: Taylor Swift
Style: Sparkly bodice
If you love glitter as much as Taylor, but don't want to go too wild, try a gown with a sparkly bodice and a tulle skirt. It's really pretty and completely fun!


Star: Vanessa Hudgens
Style: Black velvet
No wonder Vanessa snagged a hottie like Zac – her casual-meets-flirty style is totally eye-catching! To rock a dress like this to prom, choose superglam accessories and shoes to play up the basic black.

The person who created the post just never posted anything, they only titled it. And besides, even if it was me who created it, titling it "Suicide isn't the answer" wouldn't gather as much of an audience. Say someone here actually WAS thinking of suicide. They'd see this post and think about looking at it to see how many others were too. They'd come here and they might actually change their mind because they'd see my *encouraging* post that was totally unexpected. It's called a head fake. But if they saw "Suicide isn't the answer" as a title, they'd probably not look at it because they'd heard the same thing over and over again. I'm not suicidal, but if I were I wouldn't probably bother looking at a post like that.  I see your point now.
