What’s the must-have style for prom this year? Celebrity. The New York Post reports that in addition to spending hundreds of dollars on party buses and after-party locales, local high school girls are ponying up the cash — up to $1,400 for some dresses — in order to get gowns that match the ones celebrities wear on the red carpet.
“This year, kids are spending wedding prices for proms,” said the manager of a Queens-based boutique. “Everyone wants to be Kim Kardashian or Lady Gaga. It’s increased by $500 since last year.” We’ve tracked down the prom dresses that match not only the styles described in the article, but also mimic the looks of other A-listers.
