For the whole week, MTV Style is bringin’ you nothing but mega-awesome-super-must-have-everything-you-need-to-know-before-going-to prom coverage. But you know what? We can’t forget about the boys! Each day we’re picking a hot dude with SERIOUS jealousy-inducing “I wish he was MY prom date” style, and at the end of the week, we’ll pick our prom king! Who shall be crowned the ultimate prom style icon? Check back on Friday to find out!
When it comes to crowning our prom king, we want to make sure we hit ALL corners of the “guys we like” categories. We’ve fawned over over the badass fashion guy (Kanye West), the supercute music guy (A-Trak), and the all-American hot guy (Ethan Peck). But, um, HALLO. We’re missing THE BEST/QUITE POSSIBLY THE MOST IMPORTANT kind of guy: the hillllaaaaaarrrrious guy! Today, we are loving comedian and “Parks and Recreation” star Aziz Ansari. In high school, he was probably the class clown that actually made world history class kind of entertaining. He had tons of friends, and his gaggle of loud buddies would always dare him to do weird stuff. And, hey, in high school doing weird stuff makes people LIKE YOU, so we like him too.
But it’s not only about personality here at MTV Style. Yeah, we’re superficial. We care about what they look like too, and Aziz looks FAB! Recently he was spotted at the Met Gala in a totally prom king-worthy outfit. He wore a two-button, black tux with satin trim around the cuffs, notched lapel and pocket, paired with a white shirt and bow tie. CLASSY! We also love his white pocket square and his adorable face scruff. We think he’d be the best prom date EVAR—aaaaand he’ll keep you in stitches talking about his food nicknaming hobby. So, what say you? Who should be our prom king?
