Facts Verse Presents: Celebrity Prom Pictures You Won’t Believe
Sure, it’s nice to see celebrities looking relatably normal for a change – but we’re guessing that some of these familiar faces are probably wishing that these embarrassing pics never leaked.
Long before many of our most beloved celebrities ever strutted down the red carpet at the Grammys or Oscars they were teenagers just like everyone else.
And yes, before they flaunted their designer wardrobes and had millions of followers on Instagram, they were gloriously awkward and still figuring out what they were going to do after high school.
Some of them were luckier than others and still looked fabulous even before they received their diplomas.

Honestly, not much has changed.
Was there ever a time that she wasn’t looking classy as hell? Despite those weird hand gestures, she was looking pretty sophisticated in that ivory dress.
Seeing that Taylor has a history of writing songs about her real-life experiences and love interests, we’re curious if she ever wrote any songs about that boy?
No, but seriously what’s up with those hand signs? And somebody’s got to tell that kid that he looks ridiculous with his all-white tux, tie, and goofy white tilted hat.
Here’s little Jimmy looky gawky and awkward with a date that looks like she was well out of his league. Maybe she knew that only 6 years after that prom he’d be making his debut on SNL.
Fallon certainly has come a long way since this hilarious picture.
Is that Leslie Knope getting out of that limo? Looks like she went in style!
Hopefully, her date got her those flowers!
So, there is nothing particularly off about Rihanna’s look here. That dress and necklace combo is on point and her hair and make-up are screaming ‘born-to-be-a-star’ but what’s up with her date?
Now, we’re not going to shame the guy for his looks, he probably grew up to be quite handsome, but if you were going to prom with Rihanna, wouldn’t you at least smile about it? He looks like he’s having an awful time.

Lance Bass And Danielle Fishel
Here are two teens that already had achieved stardom before they even finished high school.

Wonder what Danielle thought when Lance came out as gay in 2006?
Maybe that explains those hover hands.
Seriously man, lighten up!
Here’s a 17-year-old future president at his Punahou High School prom in Hawaii.

Born to lead!
It’s nice to know that Demi comes through on her promises.

Before he played Jacob in the Twilight films, he was Sharkboy in The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl.
