Ahh, prom. One of the highlights of a high school student’s life. Prom is a formal dance event or gathering of high school students. It is typically held near the end of the senior year. Students come in their best (seriously!) evening formal attire, bring a date or be with a group of friends, arrive in a limousine or a party bus, anything that would make the experience more unique and unforgettable.
But as perfect as it may sound and despite all the preparation, there are still awkward moments and bad photos during this much-awaited event. I mean, nobody really looks great during high school, right? It’s an awkward stage to be in honestly. Just like the photos on this list!
Have fun and share your awkward prom moment.
20. Welcome to America
Prom in America. Not really an image of what high school students should be doing! If this is just the beginning, we wonder how it will end! Raging hormones and everything. Kids trying to grow up and act mature, not really. Too racy! Just wait and enjoy your teenage life!
19. Mother Stuffs Best
Now mom, let’s not get carried away. I wonder what was she thinking when she decided to stuff her daughter’s dress. Hmmm? Could it be based on personal experience? Her daughter doesn’t seem to mind some extra fluffiness on the chest department either. Let’s just hope that nothing peeks out of while she’s working the dance floor.
18. Too Cool For School
Hello, mullet. Where have you been? Haven’t seen you for a while. Oh yeah, I forgot it was way back in the 80s. Now, this is what we call a flashback. The hair and shades may not be so flattering but the kids back then looked pretty classy and decent. No too much cleavage or unnecessary exposure.
17. Banned From Prom
Now, don’t they all look sweet and pretty in their gowns? But when mom asks for one last photo before they head to the prom this is what she gets. Uh oh. They’re not so sweet and innocent now mom. I think she had a mild heart attack and these girls are changing to their PJs.
16. The Bozo Date
I can definitely understand why she looks like that in this photo. I think she regretted saying to yes to this bozo as her date. I mean, who wouldn’t be embarrassed? If her dad would be around I don’t think he would be showing up like this. Get a life!
15. When Prom Girls Attack
A group of girls in short and tight dresses may be every guys’ eye candy but don’t be fooled by those sweet and innocent smile. For all, we know they could be hiding something behind those charming smiles. Prom season is also pranking season, so beware! Don’t get carried away, or else.
14. Fishy Date
High school years may be one of the best or worst seasons in a person’s life. Sometimes puberty may not be kind and you can feel awkward. Just like this guy. It may look funny but wouldn’t you go dateless rather than bring a trout to prom? It’s less embarrassing and you’ll still have your dignity intact.
13. Students’ Pet
Now here are another bunch of guys bringing animals to the prom. What is it with guys bringing animals to prom? I’m thinking, it’s a guy thing? Who knows. And the three of them decided to share the embarrassment. I don’t know if they’ll be proud of themselves looking back at this photo.
12. Who Is The Fairest Of Them All?
Who says, only guys compare boob sizes. I don’t think her friend minds cupping her assets in broad daylight. She may be thinking to have hers done and wants exactly the same size as her friends. Her friend doesn’t mind though as hers is all natural. She’s just blessed in the chest department.
11. The Creepy Date
These two ladies’ are having fun but I don’t think her friend’s date on the back likes to share her date. Chill, dude. Those flowers are going to wilt, they’re just taking a picture. Almost too creepy to look at. So the next you choose a date, pick someone less creepy!
10. Too Hot For Date
Now isn’t this guy just so lucky to have a gorgeous date! Nothing personal but we can’t deny that! They even have matching colors. Just one thing about the pose. It’s a bit awkward and is he channeling Austin Powers to get his mojo? Whatever it is, he’s just a lucky guy!
9. Daddy’s Girl
Daddy’s little girl is no longer a baby. But I think she’s just pushing it a bit too far. Yes, you have great legs but I don’t think you’re dad is going to like this photo when he sees this. He might have a heart attack! Have mercy on him.
8. Twerk At The Nerd
She’s definitely having fun. But she may be too much to handle for him. You’re better off just being seatmates in science class than dance partners. Or let’s wait for him to develop his body parts. But as for now let’s talk about our homework. To the library it is!
7. Gown’s Too Small
I know you see it. Yes, it’s a nice gown but I don’t think that’s the right size for her. Especially in the chest area. It needs more support for the ahem, size. It looks like it’ll swallow her alive. But we can’t deny she is well-endowed in the chest department.
6. The Girls Are Out
She’s not the only ones going out and having fun tonight. She’s definitely showing off her best assets and working what her momma gave her. I’m sure it would be difficult for those pairs. And just for prom, she’s letting them breathe. They need some fresh air too.
5. Happy Date
Now we definitely know why his date has that big smile. Some girls are just naturally, or should I say overly endowed in the chest area. I’m happy she found a dress to hold her precious babies. But just hoping that her dress can still hold up to the pressure.
4. I Challenge You To A Staring Contest
Is she the little sister’s happy date (previous photo)? Maybe not but they are definitely sisters when it comes to bust size. Her assets are overflowing in the dress but hopefully, it can keep them up! But I challenge you to a staring contest! Just look at the eyes and nothing else!
3. Wardrobe Malfunction Waiting To Happen
Uh oh. That dress doesn’t cover much and is leaving too little to the imagination. Not to mention a wardrobe malfunction prone dress! There’s nothing wrong with flaunting your assets but this one is a little too much. Just don’t get carried away on the dance floor or you’ll never hear the end of it!
2. Prom Or Mardi Gras?
Kids these days. I thought prom was supposed to be a black-tie event. We’re not performing at a street dance, are we? Sorry, but this dress (or costume) is too trashy and ridiculous. If her parent’s let her wear them to prom I’m going to lose it! The teachers could have a heart attack!
1. Best Friend’s Wedding
This is definitely a blast from the past. Nothing racy or scandalous. The girl is perfectly covered up. But it screams more like a wedding to me than a prom. And look at her hands, she looks like she’s about to do a ballet dance. And I think the guys wear shades back then to look cool.
There you have it. The 20 most awkward prom photos. What do you think? From old school fashion to racy gowns, a prom is just really an interesting event not to miss. Puberty is such an awkward and fun phase of every person’s life. Whether you were cool back then or the school nerd, the memories will last a lifetime. Especially if you’ve taken a photo! Nothing immortalizes the memory more than that!
What was your most awkward prom experience? We all have been there. When we look back at that memory, it’s both embarrassing and funny. We almost tell ourselves, what were we thinking!? But to make you feel better, almost everyone looked awkward during puberty.
