Sure, we’ve been finding ways to have THE most perfect prom all week long, but have you ever wondered how some of your favorite celebs celebrated their big night out? Well, we certainly have, and since we work at MTV (NBD), we thought we’d find out how some of our biggest stars stacked up. We rounded up prom pics from Jersey Shore, The Hills, Laguna Beach, Awkward., and TRL cast members, and, OMG, we are so excited to share them with you. Warning: Lots of awesomeness ahead.
NICOLE ’SNOOKI’ POLIZZI FROM ’JERSEY SHORE’

Our girl Jersey Shore girl Snooki didn’t look so much different back in the day. She definitely had the “T” of “GTL” on lock, and, um, that up-do with the tendrils cascading down the side? SO mid-2000s. She went for the classic smoky eye and nude lip look paired with a strapless teal dress, which she said she swiped up from JC Penney. Not bad, Ms. Polizzi!
RONNIE ORTIZ-MAGRO FROM ’JERSEY SHORE’

Ronnie. In. A. White. Tux. We can officially die now, everyone. Also, please note the perfectly-spiked hair and sultry smize. #WERK
SAMMI ’SWEETHEART’ GIANCOLA FROM ’JERSEY SHORE’

Aw, even back in the day Sammi looked like a total sweetheart! She opted for a (partially sheer! Daring!) sparkly lavender spaghetti-strap gown with GORGE curly tendrils and diamond necklace.
PAUL ’DJ PAULY D’ DELVECHHIO FROM ’JERSEY SHORE’
Paul ’DJ Pauly D’ DelVecchio at prom.
Pauly D sported the standard black tux attire but spiced it up with a printed vest and bow tie. The most surprising part? The double gold earring game he’s rocking. How GLAM.
DEENA NICOLE CORTESE FROM ’JERSEY SHORE’

Our girl Deena was all smiles at her pre-prom photo sesh wearing a sparkly black and white gown with spaghetti straps. We TOTALLY sported that unexplainable cornrow-updo-thing at our school dances too, so obvi we have a soft spot for this look.
KRISTIN CAVALLARI FROM ’LAGUNA BEACH’ (JUNIOR YEAR)

While prom is just a mere memory for most of us, some people had their entire night broadcast to the entire world. Twice. Yes, we’re talking about you Kristin Cavallari. When the Laguna Beach star was a junior (and dating senior hottie Stephen), she sported a short, kelly green ruffled frock with—you guessed it—spaghetti straps and a layered bob. Stephen matched K Cav in a forest green tie and all-black tux and shirt.
KRISTIN CAVALLARI FROM ’LAGUNA BEACH’ (SENIOR YEAR)

Senior year, Kristin went to prom with Talan who wore an all-white ensemble sans tie. She sported a plunging peach frock with kohl-rimmed eyes and chunky, highlighted hair. If only we could see the shoes. :(
STEPHANIE PRATT FROM ’THE HILLS’

Our Hills girl Stephanie Pratt opted for a super timeless deep V black dress paired with strappy heels. She REALLY amped up her beauty game by doing a killer blow-out with smoky eyes and high-shine lips. Killed. It.
JILLIAN ROSE REED FROM ’AWKWARD’

It looks like our favorite red-headed Awkward. girl Jillian Rose Reed didn’t always sport a fiery ’do—in her pre-prom pic she showed off super straight dark brown strands and thick bangs. She went ALL out for her ensemble by wearing a strapless hot pink, black and white dress complete with a full skirt, bow tie belt and rhinestones. She finished the look with rose-adorned (like her name, hehe) peep-toe heels and a matching prom date.
LA LA ANTHONY FROM ’TRL’

The only MTV VJ to hit our prom list is La La Anthony (formerly Vasquez) who hosted TRL back in ’02. Her prom outfit included a slim-fit, silky white dress with a chiffon scarf and matching pointy heels. For her beauty game, she pulled her strands up into a curly up-do and sported long white nails.
