So you've been dreaming about your prom since you were yay high back in, oh, about 1999. You imagined your gown to be big and poufy with lots of bells and whistles. Then 2011 wagged its finger and said, helloooo, let's dress for today! Now that your dreams are lost in the '90s, take inspiration for 2011 prom dresses from the red carpet regulars who always get it right!
From the front row at Betsey Johnson's Spring 2011 show, this neon strapless party dress struck us as one of the best 2011 prom dresses we've seen yet. And then imagine our excitement when Katy Perry donned this dress at the People's Choice Awards! If you're looking to go fun, flirty, short and strapless, shop 2011 prom dresses online at Betsey Johnson!
Who better to lend inspiration for 2011 prom dresses than Glee star Lea Michele? Her pink one-shoulder Oscar de la Renta gown, worn at the Golden Globes, is every girl's fantasy 2011 prom dress! While this is a lot of gown for a teenage gal, the fresh hue keeps it flirty. We love this tiered version from Porto UK at just $192!
Dianna Agron is another Glee star with stellar style! Find inspiration for your 2011 prom dresses in this ivory strapless column. When paired with long shiny ringlets, a chandelier necklace and dark vampy manicure, this look is Old Hollywood at its finest. Just steer clear of too much pouf and beading to avoid feeling like a premature bride! We like the Timona strapless silk gown at BCBG.
