Those of us who were born pre-millennial will never forget movies like Grease when John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John floored everyone with their epic dance routines, which we all tried our very best to replicate. If you’re looking for some prom dress inspiration, here are some classics that featured stunning designer creations.
Prom Night (1980)
A chilling rendition of a slasher horror movie, this 1980 movie starred Jamie Lee Curtis and Leslie Nielsen, who were both in the early stages of their careers. The stunning dress Jamie wore for the prom dance has inspired many girls who are looking for something special to wear.
As already mentioned above, this was a classic musical with awesome dance routines by both Olivia and John, who seemed to become one on the dance floor. The prom scene would inspire you to wear one of those short or long white prom dresses with an A-Line style typical of the fifties. Sandy (the main character) wore a thin strap corset-to-the-waist white prom dress that flared out from the waist in layers. If you weren’t around at that time, you really must watch this classic summer romance movie and you’ll understand why the soundtrack topped the charts for many weeks.
Based on Stephen King’s 1974 novel of the same name, the main character was played by Sissy Space and before her prom dress gets covered in gory blood, the gorgeous pink gown might be just the thing for you. Just make sure you don’t repeat any of the terrible things she ends up doing.
Gossip Girl (2007)
This unique TV series first aired in 2007 and was brought back in 2021, which featured the two main characters (Blair and Serena) wearing beautiful prom dresses. If you have yet to see this series, we recommend starting with the first series, which is different in many ways from the later series. Their gowns are very elegant, and you would be able to find something similar if you search online for designer dress retailers.
Pretty Little Liars (2010)
This US TV series was a teen mystery setting with over 160 episodes in 7 series. In one episode, it was prom night at Rosewood High School and Alison (main character) wore a stunning chiffon and lace creation, which blew everyone away! The creme color matched her long and curly hair and there was an anonymous character known only as ‘A’, which kept viewers guessing as to the identity.
The above are just a few of the TV series and films that featured epic prom dresses and we hope that one of these will give you the inspiration you need for a truly unique prom dress for 2023.
