For most people, the traditional dance at the prom is one of the most memorable events of adolescence. Awkward first kisses and slow dancing, luxurious outfits and, of course, posing in a couple for photos. Celebrities had it all. Here is a collection of pictures from the proms of celebrities who were young and a little awkward then, like any other teenagers.
Even in 1987, when crazy outfits and hairstyles were in fashion, Matthew McConaughey was a real handsome man. The future famous actor, who was only 18 years old at the time, looked stunning in a black tailcoat and with a bow tie, which in color harmoniously combined with the shade of his couple's dress. This lucky girl is Lori Klinger, McConaughey's high school sweetheart in Longview, Texas.
Future actress Amy Poehler wore an outfit resembling an unsuccessful wedding dress to her graduation in 1989. Amy recalls her school years in Burlington, Massachusetts, in her memoir Yes Please, published in 2014. At school, she actively participated in the work of the student council and in the athletes' support team.

Before the famous reality show aired, Kim Kardashian was an ordinary teenage girl who came to her graduation in 1998 at Marymount School in Los Angeles. Next to her is her boyfriend, T. J.

The host of the famous American TV show The Tonight Show Jimmy Fallon posted his graduation photo on Twitter and signed: "The night before, my girlfriend went sunbathing. I'm not. I looked like a Powder."
It seems that a cool girl like Gwen Stefani is too cool to participate in all sorts of proms. Nevertheless, she went through it. "My mother and I sewed this dress when I was 17 years old, in the image and likeness of Grace Kelly's dress from the movie "Window to the Courtyard"," the singer signed her photo taken in 1987.
Claire Danes didn't suffer so much in high school because she mostly spent that time on film sets. However, she still had to appear at the graduation at her French Lyceum in Los Angeles in 1997.

A year and a half before Britney Spears became a real star, the singer participated in the graduation party of the private school Parklane Academy in Kentwood near Los Angeles. It was in 1997. As you can see, this dress covers much more than many of her outfits that she wore later on stage.
In 1984, Halle Berry was chosen prom queen at Bedford High School in suburban Cleveland, Ohio. However, someone began to suspect that the future actress and her friends had thrown fake ballots into the ballot box and manipulated the results of this most important vote for school life. Many years later, Halle Berry told People magazine that false suspicions of vote rigging affected her very much and it took her a long time to recover.
Young actress and model Brooke Shields took the day off to attend her graduation in 1982 in Englewood, New Jersey. But even her beau was not an easy one.
