See the Most Outrageous Prom Looks of 2017

Everyone is putting on for the ‘gram and we are totally here for it!

Published May 4, 2017

Prom fashion has come a long way from ruffles and cummerbunds. This year, you can’t scroll down your Instagram without “oohing” and “ahhing” over girls' #flawless red carpet ready gowns and their matching baes’ tuxes.

If you haven’t noticed, prom has seriously become an easy way to go viral. Whether it be for a Cinderella style promposal or a dynamic #BLM dress, this prom season, everyone is putting on for the ‘gram and we are totally here for it!

  1. The Black Lives Matter Dress

    17-year-old Milan Morris broke the internet with her #BLM dress featuring images of the victims of police brutality and race-based killings. 

  2. The Kylie Jenner-Inspired Jumpsuit

    thank you @k.partee for such amazing shots 😍📷!!!!!

    A post shared by Faith Thigpen (real page‼️) (@iamstard0m) on

    Social media went bananas when they seen Faith Thigpen's jumpsuit inspired by Kylie Jenner's 2016 MET Gala dress.

  3. The Kanye West-Inspired Look

    Young men's prom fashion can also command attention and Tito Young proved it with his Kanye West 2016 Met Gala look. The only thing he was missing was the contacts (wink!).

  4. The Jumpsuit or the Dress?

    I can do bad all by myself #Prom2k17 😉💙

    A post shared by @driaa_c on

    Social media was in a serious debate about this fashion-forward look created by Project Runway's Ken Laurence! Some loved the unique combination of Dria Cook's jumpsuit/dress, while others wanted one side over the other. Either way, this girl had us talking! And we love it!

  5. Best Friends in Sequins Who Slayed Together

    Best friends Shannel Watkins and Cameryn Powell showed that you and your bestie can slay effortlessly without a bae.

  6. The #NubianPrincess Look

    Everyone loves a #NubianPrincess and that young lady is ready to take the crown in this colorful gown.

  7. Lil Wanye's Daughter's Senior Prom Look

    #TSRPromQueenz: #ReginaeCarter is keeping it classy for her senior prom😍

    A post shared by The Shade Room (@theshaderoom) on

    Lil Wayne and Toya Wright's daughter, Reginae Carter, went to her senior prom this year and the comments confirm she is a celebrity child stunner.

  8. The Black Elsa Look

    It has not been confirmed that she was going for the Black Elsa look, but everyone's eyes were frozen on this young lady's stunning, cold-as-ice gown.

  9. She's So Bold, So Cold

    This teen decided to skip the level of fire and go straight icy with her prom dress. We were blinded by the shine of Nori's sparkling dress and so were many others.

  10. Bonus: The Best friend Couple

    Stunning gowns and elaborate promposals were not the only prom moments that went viral. Tahj asked his special needs best friend Eve to attend the prom with him as his date and the night was adorable! 

It is clear to see that 2017 prom goers showed up and showed out! This is one of the most viral prom seasons we've seen so far. But we are wondering, how will 2018 attendees show them up?

Maybe a light up dress fit for the Met Gala? Drop a line in the comment box with your predictions!
