These 6 Real Life Prom Stories Will Blow Your Mind (& Make You Feel A Bit Boring)
Reckon you could top any of these insane prom adventures?
It’s official; prom season is here, so prepare for 90% of the traffic you get stuck in for the next month to be limos full of girls in giant dresses.
But whether you love or hate prom (and all the awkward dancing that comes with it), it’s safe to say that some people take the seminal school event to a whole other level.
From insane prom entrances to promposals that made our hearts cry with joy, here’s just a few stories that’ll make your next school dance feel a bit boring.
1. The girl who arrived to prom in an ambulance
Oh yes, this actually happened. Ashvonn Russell, a teenager in the Bahamas, rocked up to her prom (in her on-point dress) in an ambulance, even being brought out on a stretcher.
After getting a kiss from her date, she sprang into action, Sleeping Beauty style, and strutted on inside like the boss she is.
2. This epic homemade prom dress
A bullied teen got the sweetest revenge at her prom recently, as she turned up to her school’s event in THE most gorgeous dress… Which the girl designed herself.
Literally the furthest thing from the pink taffeta we typically imagine when we think of proms, 18-year-old Kyemah McEntyre absolutely killed it in her own creation.
Oh, and it got her crowned Prom Queen. So much win.
3. Boy promposes to his gay best friend
Aka the sweetest story we’ve heard all year. Gay student Anthony was feeling glum about prom after nobody asked him, but his best friend Jacob (who happens to be straight) soon stepped up and gave him the promposal of every teenager’s dreams.
Extra points for the epic rhyming.
4. Justin Bieber crashes a high school prom
We genuinely we don’t know how any Beliebers who attended this lucky prom in Chatsworth, California survived this incredible surprise.
Having missed his own prom due to being a huge pop star, Justin Bieber decided to crash one on a random night just to see what he’d been missing. We doubt he was that impressed.
5. Twilight star Kellan Lutz takes mega fan to prom as his date
Kellan Lutz might be a film star and one of the hottest humans on the planet, but he made time for a mega fan who he first met on Twitter and made her dreams come true.
After taking her to her school’s prom, Kellan told Cosmopolitan about the experience, saying: “She had no friends. She asked if I would be her friend because she had been bullied, and was just really depressed in life.
“I was like, 'I would love to. It would be an honour.' We danced the night away. It was really special for both of us."
6. The teen who used her prom dress to raise awareness for girls’ education rights
It’s all well and good making sure you look good for your final big school event, but teen Erinne Paisley used hers to make a huge statement.
Wearing a handmade dress created from her old maths homework, Erinne used it to send people to Malala Yousafzai’s website, and had this message printed on the design: “I’ve received my education. Not every woman has that right.”
What. A. Babe.
