Prom is probably one of the most memorable events in a teenager’s life. Even some of the celebrities before they rose to stardom went through the awkward teenage stage. The acne, bad hair, big fashion boo-boos, you name it, they went through those. They had no stylists and glam squads during those years so they committed some fashion mistakes that made them look awkward and ordinary just like the rest of us.
