At my first prom, I went for classic elegance. But this prom had a Great Gatsby theme, so I wanted to go all-out glam. After all, it’s my senior year, so why not?!
I’m not normally a very sparkly person. Most of the time, I prefer to keep things simple. I’m also extremely particular when it comes to beading and sequins. I think it’s too easy for embellishment to come across as gaudy or tacky. However, I fell in love with this beaded silk gown from Sean Collection. The gown manages to be eye-catching without being completely over the top, and it made me feel gorgeous. I completed the look with voluminous curls and a Givenchy crystal necklace. Zbyszek looked pretty handsome, too, I suppose, but I think I stole the show. Haha.
Aiyanna looked beautiful in this raspberry gown that she designed and constructed herself. She probably would’ve still managed to look amazing in a trash bag, though.
Here’s a cute snapshot of the whole group. All the girls looked absolutely gorgeous and the guys looked dashingly dapper. I was an especially big fan of Marisa’s Adrianna Papell gown (far right); it was the perfect modern take on the dance’s Gatsby-glam theme.
I hope you girls all had an amazing of time at your proms. I know I did!
