Ah prom night! The fabled rite of passage where teenage dreams of splendid romance are unceremoniously bulldozed by acne ridden photos and illicit jello shots.

You would have to be criminally insane (or insanely popular) to want to go back to that fateful night of corsages and virgin cocktails, but we can all take comfort in the fact that we are not alone with out post traumatic prom syndrome.

Our favorite celebs all threw on bedazzled frocks and buttonholes alongside us, but somehow they all managed to look at least 50 percent more awesome than awkward.

Don't believe me? Check out the celebrity snap shots below and choose your own prom king or queen.

Jessica Alba

Jessica Alba serves Oktoberfest, Bavarian milk maid realness!

Meryl Streep

Meryl Streep has always looked regal.

Will Ferrell

If Ferrell wasn't bestowed with the title of Prom Queen, the world is more unjust than we ever possibly imagined.


Bad Gal Riri must have been a huge Nick Carter fan to tolerate these criminal curtains.

Bruce Willis

I think we may have found one of the only men who actually looks better bald...

George Clooney

Mastering the art of smug since 1961.

Scarlett Johansson

Scar-Jo went to prom with Lena Dunham's fiancee, Jack Antonoff. Who'd have thought it!

Ellen Degeneres

I don't know who the fashion police should arrest first...

Kim Kardashian

Kim K's prom date was Michael Jackson’s nephew and former 3T member, TJ Jackson, which I'm sure had nothing to do with how famous he was. Nothing at all.

Lady GaGa

Sadly, Gaga didn't arrive at her prom in a giant egg.

President Obama

Before the White House, there was the white suit.

Ashton Kutcher

Slicked hair, don't care.


Something tells me Mama Knowles was already designing the future Queen B's clothes in high school...

Nina Dobrev

Is it just me, or was dobrev's prom date Stefan Salvatore? Maybe doppelgängers are real...


Now we all have a handy mental image to accompany the word "smooth"

Busta Rhymes

Buster Rhymes had already nailed his trademark pineapple tresses back in his high school days.

Taylor Lautner

The bristly pelt of a werewolf was already desperately trying to burst out of Lautner's scalp.

Courtney Cox

Courtney Cox's real prom was certainly a lot more photogenic than her Friends flashback!

Jennifer Aniston

Sure, Jennifer Aniston looks classier than anybody who has ever attended prom in this picture, but there's no denying Rachel's prom was more entertaining!

Brad Pitt

Prom night or shotgun wedding. You decide.


How would you feel if your old prom photos resurfaced on the internet?
