Friends, 1996

In “The One With the Prom Video,” we see Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) and Monica (Courteney Cox) getting ready for the prom in classic ’80s dresses, complete with poofy sleeves and shiny chiffon. This may be one instance where we are pleased that certain styles go out of fashion! There is also a sweet appearance from a dorky Ross complete with ruffles. (Photo: NBC/Everett Collection)

Carrie, 1976

Carrie, played by Sissy Spacek, looked innocent and pretty in pink for this 1970s prom. However, prom took a turn for the worse when blood was dumped on her in a cruel joke. Her pink dress turned dark red, making it a night that high school students — and the fashion world — would never forget! (Photos: Everett Collection)

Back to the Future, 1985

Here, Marty (Michael J. Fox) is introducing his parents to one another in order to ensure his existence in the future. Mom Lorraine (Lea Thompson) is wearing a classic strapless pink prom dress that is stylish through the ages. (Photo: Everett Collection)

Pretty in Pink, 1986

This gown is classic ’80s style and is the hands-down winner thanks to Andie (Molly Ringwald) having made the dress herself by combining two dresses. Her craftsmanship is superb with the cutout shoulders, dropped sleeves, and high laced neck. This was a killer look that did the trick to win back her love interest. (Photo: Everett Collection)

Buffy the Vampire Slayer, 1992

Kristy Swanson slays her prom in an angelic white prom dress with a heart-shaped corset. After she kills the vampire who crashed, she kisses Luke Perry, takes his leather jacket, and leaves the prom to go slay the rest of the vampires. Enough said. (Photo: Everett Collection)

Family Matters, 1996

Laura (Kellie Shanygne Williams) and Steve (Jaleel White) are dateless before the prom and decide to attend together. Laura is by far the best dressed there, in her fitted black sequined halter dress with black strappy heels, while Steve looks sharp in his tux. (Photo: ABC)

Boy Meets World, 1998

Topanga (Danielle Fishel) and Cory (Ben Savage) manage to be crowned Prom Queen and King — it must have been Topanga’s eye-catching two-piece red dress. (Photo: ABC/Getty Images)

Full House, 1993

DJ (Candace Cameron Bure) runs into Steve’s ex-girlfriend at a dress shop and almost purchases the same short dress with a sheer lace cover over the shoulders — although she doesn’t feel as pretty compared with her. So DJ chooses a classic ’90s short velvet strapless dress with cuffed shoulders. Thankfully, as the night goes on, Becky (Lori Loughlin) and Jesse (John Stamos) are there — looking top-notch as always — to save the day. (Photo: Getty Images)

Full House, 1995

Prom No. 2 is an emotional one, being the final episode. Not only does Michelle get her memory back, but Steve surprises DJ as her date for prom. DJ looks better than ever in this final scene, with a fitted gold silk slipdress and straight, shoulder-length hair. (Photo: ABC)

Full House, 1995

Let’s not forget the light-up dress worn by Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber), with a purse that served as a battery pack. (Photo: ABC)

Dawson’s Creek, 2000

Joey (Katie Holmes) looks gorgeous when she opts out of her normal tomboy clothes and into a spaghetti-strap black dress. However, it’s her jewelry that both Pacey and Dawson fixate on. Dawson gives her earrings to wear, which Pacey points out don’t fit her classic style. Instead, he comments that her bracelet is “not showy, or gaudy, just simple, elegant, beautiful” — like her. The bracelet was her deceased mother’s. We all know who was truly deserving of being Joey’s prom date here. (Photo: The WB)

10 Things I Hate About You, 1999

Cat Stratford (Julia Stiles) looks perfectly ’90s in this light royal blue dress that she claims she just had lying around. Heath Ledger looks perfect without the bow tie, which sums up how badass dreamy he was without trying. (Photo: Everett Collection)

10 Things I Hate About You, 1999

Bianca (Larisa Oleynik) put a bit more time into her dress, and later Taylor Swift copied her for the 2016 Grammys. This two-piece dress was a major hit! (Photo: Everett Collection)

Jawbreaker, 1999

An ultimate movie for everything style, and prom. If you have not watched this recently, do yourself a favor and stream it this weekend on Hulu. The bright and bold colors, the slim sihouette and mermaid fits, were true to the late ’90s. Not to mention the butterfly clips in Rebecca Gayheart’s hair. (Photo: TriStar Pictures)

She’s All That, 1999

Rachael Leigh Cook’s dress resembles the Joey Potter look in the classic black thin spaghetti-strap dress.

She’s All That, 1999

Let us never forget that Gabrielle Union starred in many proms. Here she is looking chic and cool as ever, in her velvet cheetah print dress with her black fur shawl. We love you, Gabrielle Union! (Photo: Miramax Films)

She’s All That, 1999

Though she ends up stealing the crown from Rachael, Jode Lyn O’Keefe, who plays Taylor Vaughan, looks great in her gold crushed-velvet halter dress. Earlier in the evening, she also led the most epic prom dance scene in history. (Photo: Miramax Films)

Mean Girls, 2004

Where everyone becomes a prom queen. The many styles shown here demonstrate the steps that the girls are making toward accepting each other despite their differences. (Photo: Everett Collection)

Saved! 2004

Wearing long colored scarves as an accessory was very 2004. Mandy Moore was a saving grace in her pretty blue dress. (Photo: Everett Collection)

Never Been Kissed, 1999

Drew Barrymore in her flashback of her own high school prom, wearing a shiny pink, puffy-sleeved dress. How could we not include this one? (Photo: 20th Century Fox)

Never Been Kissed, 1999

Though Drew Barrymore’s prom attire is top-notch (she attended with her date as Rosalind and Orlando from Shakespeare’s As You Like It), the real outfits we are obsessed with are the ones worn by the popular girls who went as different Barbies, wearing little or no clothes. (Photo: Everett Collection)

The O.C., 2006

In the Season 3 prom episode, though Marissa is not having a great night with bad boy Volchok, she looks killer in one of her final scenes in none other than a camellia dress from Chanel’s Spring 2006 line. (Photo: Fox)

The O.C., 2006

A surprising style winner is Taylor, the new friend who typically doesn’t have as much style as the other two girls; here she looks elegant and romantic in a red silk gown, while Summer goes on trend for the time and has a delicate white gown with brown sash. (Photo: Fox)

Twilight, 2008

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson remind us what true love is during their private dance outside the prom. We love that, despite having a broken leg and being the typical tomboy, Bella wears a dress, albeit with a sneaker on her other foot. (Photo: Summit Entertainment)
