Calling the class of 2018 – get prepped for the biggest night of the year with the five celebrity-inspired looks to steal for prom, with red carpet-worthy inspo from the likes of Alexa Chung, Lupita Nyong’o and Perrie Edwards. It’s time to go glam.
1. Alexa Chung
If the thought of wearing hair clips conjures up flashbacks of primary school discos then rest assured that 2k18’s remakes are anything but cringe. Case in point? Alexa Chung. The model, designer and all-round ‘it’ girl showed us how to make classic look cool with pearl-topped slides worn with vintage waves, complementing her cream-coloured dress (that collar though) to absolute perfection.
2. Lupita Nyong’o
Long live the statement earring. Making the simplest ‘fits look more than mega, these stand-out styles promise to the biz for big-deal occasions too – and Lupita Nyong’o knows it. The actress rocked the red carpet with a statement silver pair, kept in full focus with a high-neck gown (Ellie Saab, we heart you) and a sleek ‘lil up-do. Prom night perfection.
3. Perrie Edwards
If the prom dress of your dreams comes with a plunging neckline, then a dainty layered necklace is the only way to accessorise. Giving us all the ethereal feels, singer Perrie Edwards proved our point with luxe gold chains worn with a floor-sweeping style in all-glam white – the dreamiest look for starry nights.
4. Margot Robbie
Need to give your prom night get-up an extra hit of glam? Enter the metallics. Take tips from actress Margot Robbie with a cute clutch bag in high-shine silver, styled with a blush pink dress with feathers and shimmering sparkles that feel so right for the dance floor.
5. Rita Ora
Now, we wouldn’t usually say that that arm candy is any kinda prom night essential (mates before dates and all that) but we *have* to make an exception for this. Keeping it extra in a fancy feathered ballgown, singer Rita Ora made us crush hard with a stack of statement bracelets that sparkled like woah, giving her look all the prom princess feels.
