Celebrities In Prom
Before they were celebrities, they were kids and then teenagers with the same concerns as us. School, friends, dates, and of course, prom! Before they were strutting down red carpets and movie premieres, these stars got dolled up and suited up for their high school proms.
On the way to get their high school degree, they’ve had fun doing awkward poses for their camera and dressing up according to what’s hot during their teen years. See how your favorite celebs stole the spotlight during their big nights.
Jimmy Fallon’s a guy who’s not afraid to poke fun at himself, even at the cost of exposing it to everybody on the internet. This applies to his Saugerties High School 1992 prom photo where he claimed that he looked “pale and so small” like “powder” next to his prom date who was sporting heels and a newly tanned complexion.
His funny bone really came in handy as he still enjoyed his prom, despite the photo. The Tonight Show host keeps his credit score steady as the sixth permanent host of the show, succeeding Jay Leno, and taking several voice acting projects here and there.
Gia Giudice rose to fame as the daughter of one of the main stars of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Teresa Giudice. She definitely has her mother’s looks and confidence as seen in her prom photo, where she wore a slim-fitting beaded white Coco’s Chateau gown that made her look like an absolute angel.
Though her parents had their share of difficulties involving loans and bank fraud, the teen enjoyed her youth at her school formal. She also revealed recently that she’s happier than ever with a new nose job.
RuPaul Andre Charles, it seems, was born fabulous. The American drag queen definitely showed his taste for fashion and glamour early on at his school’s prom in Northside High, Atlanta. Even out of his drag, RuPaul outshone everyone with his tailored long-tail suit, gloves, and spiked hair.
His outfit back in 1983 is nothing compared to the degree of flamboyancy he now has and the achievements he’s been able to make with his various shows and films, which have had an impact on the LGBT community.
DANIELLE FISHEL AND LANCE BASS
There’s nothing sweeter than having your boyfriend or girlfriend as your date to the prom. There’s also nothing more bitter than having it all end badly and being left with prom photos that are rendered useless by your partner’s mere presence.
In any case, the situation had been the former for Danielle Fishel and Lance Bass. The two were dating back in 1999 to 2000 and went to Fishel’s prom together as a couple.
They’ve broken up since then, and the Boy Meets World star has since been married twice. Fishel now has a child with Jensen Karp, while the N’Sync member has, to his credit, come out of the closet and revealed his true identity as a homosexual man.
Before he was known as Michael Kelso from That ‘70s Show, Ashton Kutcher attended his 1996 senior prom at Clear Creek Amana High School in Iowa. He busted the moves in his bow tie and vest with his batchmates.
The actor has had a consistent stream of good projects and income with films like No Strings Attached and Two and a Half Men. His credit score remains great, and he has a net worth of $150 million. He has also used his voice to support new gun laws and has promoted content published by his own company, A Plus.
NICOLE “SNOOKI” POLIZZI
Before Snooki achieved fame – or infamy- from the show Jersey Shore, she was first Nicole Polizzi who partied it up at her Marlboro High School prom in 2006 with her friends.
She’s had an eventful handful of years after that prom, with her starring in Jersey Shore and even headlining her own show, Snooki & Jwoww. She’s also had legal troubles. On July 20, 2010, she was arrested in Seaside Heights, New Jersey for disturbing the peace and disorderly conduct. She also called an attorney and sued SRG Ventures for breach of contract.
However, she’s since mellowed down and settled with Jionni LaValle with which she has three kids. In 2015, they bought a $2.6 million home in Florham Park.
There’s absolutely no doubt that George Clooney was a heartthrob even during his youth. The Academy Award winner went to his prom at the Augusta High School in Kentucky back in 1978. His charm was evident even then!
Nowadays, Clooney’s busy serving as one of the United Nations Messengers of Peace since January 31, 2008. Clooney is very vocal with his activism and advocacy, which includes his support for the LGBT community and his efforts to raise the recognition for the Armenian Genocide. He is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and is married to human rights lawyer, Amal Clooney.
Matthew McConaughey’s prom photo resurfaced after the niece of his then prom date tweeted their photo from the Longview High School bash in 1998 in Longview, TX. He’s definitely got the looks and smile down to pat even then, perfect for his future roles in romantic-comedy films like How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, The Wedding Planner, and Ghosts of Girlfriends Past. It was with these movies that McConaughey gained his reputation as a leading man and sex symbol.
McConaughey’s now an Oscar-winning Best Actor for his 2014 performance in the film Dallas Buyers Club, and continuously raises his credit score with films like Interstellar.
Before Kim Kardashian became one of the industry’s hottest reality television stars, fashion icon, and trendsetter, she first went to prom with a plus one from another famous family, Michael Jackson’s nephew, TJ.
Since then, Kim has seen the industry’s best and worst with her leaked sex tape, large following and increase of her and her family’s credit score. Although nowadays, it looks like Kim has left those unstable years behind and has settled into a comfortable lifestyle with rapper Kanye West and their children.
The Mad Men star pulled off suits long before his days as the high-power advertising creative, Don Draper. The hair’s a whole different story. In his interview with Jimmy Kimmel, Jon Hamm recounted his prom at John Burroughs School as the period when the mullet was still a thing.
It didn’t make him any less handsome though! Before Hamm landed the role of Don Draper, he first made small appearances in television, such as in the shows Providence, The Division, What About Brian, and Related. His hard work and consistency worked to an astounding degree, leading him to win a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor for his performance in Mad Men.
