This picture is actually from 2015, but we had to include it anyway!

The sheer creativity and beauty coming through from the class of 2016 is astounding!

Are these 17 and 18 year-olds??? Am I the only one who thinks some dresses are not age appropriate?

Sweetie, I’ve seen some prom dresses this season on social media, that would make most of these look demure. Some of the necklines are a bit much, but otherwise, I can’t hate.

If you think they’re too much, don’t put your daughter in them..easy. Otherwise, live and let live.

Aren’t they about to be young adults? Let them breathe a little. They not wearing this EVERYDAY, its just a one-time event. You sound like a overprotective mom. You can’t control everything they wear, they gonna have to grow up at some point,just like young adults get to wear what they want, treat them like the young adults they are maturing in to.

i’m so excited for prom. All the dresses were appropriate and classy. I’ve seen some trashy tasteless dress and this ain’t it.

Beautiful! Makes me want to go to a white tie affair. The girl in the white and red dress reminds me of Keke Palmer, just a little.

Very pretty. I have to admit some of these dresses were not age appropriate. One girl had a huge cutout in the front showing way too much breast. The girl in the teal and white mermaid gown,. Too much!!

My have times changed! I went to prom in 2009 and back then no one wore dresses nearly as sexy and over-the-top as these ladies.

Times have truly changed!! The money that is being spent on these dresses is str8 RIDICULOUS!! (COLLEGE BOOKS?)
I truly LOVED ALL THE AFRICAN INSPIRED DRESSES! They were beautiful and subtle, not having to expose so much for shock value! My question is…WHAT’S WITH ALL THE FISH-TAILED LONG TRAIN DRESSES?? Some of the trains were a bit dramatic! The young men looked so very handsome too!! As a Makeup Artist, some of the ladies highlighted their faces…WAY TOO MUCH!! Highlights are to enhance..not glare in your photos!! Them KARDASHIANS done told you wrong My SISTA’S!!!!
