Prom Picks From a Special Guest Editor

While most of our Rent the Runway girls are busy juggling a social calendar that includes weddings, dates, black tie benefits, baby showers, and more, I know there are some of you out there for whom all that still seems a million miles away. You're thinking spring break, senior spring, and most importantly, PROM!

 

It's been a while since my last Prom, but I still remember how important it is to find the perfect dress. My best friend and I spent countless weekends driving all over the state Massachusetts in my Volvo station wagon on a mission to locate the most important fashion statements of our 18 year old lives. RTR is a high school fashion dream come true – designer dresses within reach and you don't even have to blow five months of gas money (as one of our members recently pointed out). Vicki and I would have absolutely died to arrive at Prom in a dress by our favorite Project Runway designer or in one that had walked down the red carpet!

 

The RTR Stylists have recently been swamped with girls seeking advice for Prom. Since we haven't been to prom in quite some time, I thought we should bring in someone who has. Enter Zoe; a Junior from CA and self-proclaimed fashion lover. Zoe rented an amazing Alice + Olivia Gold One Shoulder Sequin Dress for her winter formal and she has since been logging onto RTR daily to find the perfect prom dress.  Below are Zoe's top picks for prom- what are yours? — Brooke

 

Robert Rodriguez Black Label Bright Bodice Gown

My personal favorite, it combines a classic gown style with beautiful twists and folds of silk chiffon and a dramatic "tail." The details are impeccable and the color is bold but just right for prom.

 

Mark & James by Badgley Mischka Shimmy It Mini

This dress was designed for dancing! Not for wallflowers, its sequins and shine will call attention to you with every shimmy and shake.

 

Christian Siriano Coastal Print Ruffle Dress

Forget the double-take. This fun yet sophisticated dress will make you the recipient of quadruple-takes! Not your typical prom dress, this oceanic stunner has asymmetrical ruffles trimmed with eye-grabbing silver sequins.

 

Nicole Miller Keyhole Goddess Gown

 

I can't take my eyes off this dress, and no one will be able to take their eyes off of you, either. What's not to like- it shimmers, it's pink, and it's the grown-up Disney princess's dream!
