14 Dresses For Prom And Beyond!

Thinking back on all the biggest fashion moments of our lives, Prom definitely ranks up there. And while we'd like to think that we were always on-the-pulse when it came to refined party dressing, some of our Proms were inevitably a little on the too-much-tulle-and-tacky side (and isn't it great that we all have photographic evidence that captured the outfit for all of eternity?). To help our junior devotees out ('sup ladies!), as well as those of us who are looking for some more Cinderella moments of our own, we've collected 14 beautiful formal'ish dresses that you can wear to everything from your High School Prom to that black-tie gala you've got penciled in your (very) grown-up planner.
