Makeup, shoes and the all-important gown…run down our checklist of helpful and insightful tips swiped directly from hot videos on how to make your night one for the history books.
Girls: A prom dress is the epicenter of a young woman’s prom world. Long and flowing or short and sassy, your prom dress must fit your personality in order to be a real hit. Britney Spears may look super-hot in her different outfits in her "Toxic" video but you probably want to go with something a little more classic. If you are having trouble trying to think of what your perfect prom dress should look like, close your eyes and picture yourself slow dancing to Peter Gabriel’s "In Your Eyes" with your dream date. What dress are you wearing? Choose something that will make your evening as special as you are.
Guys: Pow wow with your date before the big night and find out what color her dress is so you can get a tux that matches. And a dress is not complete without a beautiful corsage, so plan ahead to get her one that will compliment her dress perfectly.
Girls: Shoes are the most important accent to a girl’s ensemble and really make a prom outfit pop. The key is to find shoes that look great and feel great too. Some of you may want to go for the four-inch heels, but how long will those really last? Do you want to be on the dance floor getting down to Usher’s "Yeah!" or do you want to be soaking your feet in the bathroom sink? Sure Beyonce may pull off "Naughty Girl" hot heels, but she doesn’t have to work her best moves for an entire prom evening. Stick with shoes you'll be comfortable in. There are plenty of beautiful shoes out there perfect for your special night that won’t crush your toes and ruin your new pedicure.
Guys: Dudes are lucky the shoes that come with the tux are comfortable. Chicks aren't as lucky so make super-sure to hold your date’s hand while walking to the event or helping her in and out of the limo.
Girls: Your instinct could be to pile on a face full of makeup for the big night, but you may want to think twice or you’ll end up looking like one of the chicks from the blink-182 "I Miss You" video (unless you are a Goth chick...in which case, paint away). Try to stick with a more natural look like Jessica Simpson’s from her video, "Take My Breath Away." We are all beautiful in our own way. Instead of worrying about covering up your flaws, think about emphasizing your good points. Accentuate who you are, not who you think you should be.
Guys: Your date will go through a lot of trouble to look beautiful for this big night. Show her the same respect and give yourself a nice close shave and don't forget the cologne...or at least the deodorant.
