Hair, makeup, and dressing up to their nines. Prom is a special time for high school teens, a night to be remembered and treasured. But while most of us look back on prom pictures and cringe at the amount of hairspray we used, some look as though professional stylists made them up.
We’re talking about the children of some of Hollywood’s biggest stars. From Jaden Smith to Lottie Moss, here’s how Hollywood teens did their high school proms.
Ariana Biermann, Daughter Of Kim Zolciak-Biermann
Prom photo shoots definitely don’t look like this for most teenagers. Instead of doing the traditional staircase shots with a bunch of friends, Ariana Biermann, daughter of the television personality and one of the original Housewives of Atlanta Kim Zolciak-Biermann, opted for a romantic photoshoot with her date.
It looks more like a magazine spread for a Sherri Hill evening gown collection, more so than prom photos! Apparently, Ariana didn’t get the memo that you’re supposed to look back on these photos and cringe!
Maya Thurman-Hawke, Daughter Of Uma Thurman And Ethan Hawke
Only one person can say they’re the child of legendary Academy Award-nominated actors Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke, and that’s Maya Uma-Thurman. And by the looks of this unconventional prom picture, the young actress seems to know how unique she is.
Aside from the pose, Ms. Thurman-Hawke decided to go with a completely untraditional look for her high school prom. Then again, attending a school that doesn’t grade work like Saint Ann’s School, it’s not overly surprising Maya would go with something a bit more creative than conventional.
Ming Lee Simmons, Daughter Of Kimora Lee Simmons And Russell Simmons
As the daughter of Baby Phat designer Kimora Lee Simmons, prom will look different and yet kind of the same for Ming Lee Simmons. First off, she didn’t go to the mall for her champagne-colored gown.
Instead, she had her uber-famous designer mom fashion the dress for her. Nothing like wearing a one of a kind Kimora Lee Simmons to prom! Of course, she and her date decided they were actual teenagers and did an obligatory “in front of an expensive car” photo.
Chloe Lukasiak, Daughter Of Christi Zook Lukasiak
Chloe Lukasiak and her mom, Christi Zook Lukasiak, starred in the reality show Dance Moms. And while Christi wasn’t painted with the greatest light, disagreeing with practically everyone on the show, it looks as though she and her daughter were able to agree on something: prom.
Being used to the professional hair, makeup, and dramatic photoshoots that come with being a dancer, it looks as though Christi wasn’t going to have anything less for her daughter on prom night.
Delilah Belle Hamlin, Daughter Of Lisa Rinna And Harry Hamlin
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin clearly wanted their daughter Delilah Belle to go all out for her prom. Or maybe it was her idea. Either way, this prom picture lacks the awkwardness of “normal teens.”
Clad in a unique Bec & Bridge dress, Delilah even went the extra mile with this picture, putting a filter on it to accentuate her and her date’s presence. Having magazine-ready photoshoots before prom must be a norm for some celebrity’s kids.
Lola Consuelos, Daughter Of Kelly Ripa And Mark Consuelos
Seriously, we’re not sure who wouldn’t look star-struck while taking pictures with Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos’s daughter. The Days of Our Lives star’s daughter, Lola, might be bringing a statue to prom, from the way this poor guy is standing!
Either way, Lola looked gorgeous in an emerald green gown. Her mother’s stylists must have come in to help with the complete look because we don’t remember having hair and makeup that well done in high school!
Sailor Brinkley Cook, Daughter Of Christie Brinkley
That big smile is either because Sailor Brinkley is super excited about going to her high school prom or because her mother, supermodel Christie Brinkley taught her how to really glow in front of the camera.
We’re going with a little bit of each. Either way, it looks as though being the child of an A-list star doesn’t mean Sailor is too good for this traditional back-to-front prom pose! Sailor even wrote on her Instagram, “this is crazy and cliché high school. I love it.” At least she knows!
Ava Sambora, Daughter Of Heather Locklear And Richie Sambora
What does prom look like when you’re the daughter of Heather Locklear and Richie Sambora? Well, if this photo of their daughter Ava and her date shows anything, it’s that prom looks like taking pictures on the hills overlooking Los Angeles. Not too bad!
We imagine Ava had a bit of help from her Melrose Place actress mother, picking out her classic white gown and curling her hair to look as though she stepped out of classic Hollywood.
Amelia Gray Hamlin, Daughter Of Lisa Rinna And Harry Hamlin
Growing up on the set of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, it’s no surprise that Amelia Gray Hamlin, daughter of Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin, looks as fabulous as she does for her high school prom.
With her perfect makeup, hair, and fire engine red dress, it doesn’t even look like Amelia’s attending prom, but rather a red carpet appearance with her famous parents for the reality series. That’s just how prom night looks for some people, we suppose!
Sascha Seinfeld, Daughter Of Jerry And Jessica Seinfeld
In 2019, Sascha Seinfeld, daughter of Seinfeld star Jerry Seinfeld and his wife Jessica, attended her prom. Wearing a royal blue Alice + Olivia ruched gown, Sascha is all smiles with her date while taking pictures in the backyard.
Apparently, being the daughter of a famous celebrity doesn’t mean this high school girl is too good for the traditional backyard pic! She even got her date a boutonnière. Well, maybe it was Jerry who picked it out, having worn one or two to red carpet events.
Maude Apatow, Daughter Of Leslie Mann And Judd Apatow
As it’s a prestigious private school, attending Crossroads School for Arts & Sciences prom was probably a bit different, no matter who you are. For Maude Apatow, daughter of actress Leslie Mann and director Judd Apatow, both of Knocked Up fame, it looked fairly normal. (She’s the young woman on the right.)
Wearing a classic-looking silk and lace gown, the Euphoria actress stood between her friends while someone captured their smiling faces during a traditional backyard photoshoot. It looks as though she wanted at least one traditional high school experience, corsage and all!
Dylan Douglas, Catherine Zeta-Jones And Michael Douglas
When you’re the son of a famous mom and dad, with a ridiculously well-known grandfather, prom is bound to look different than the typical teenager’s, right? Well, for Dylan Douglas, son of Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas, it actually looks surprisingly normal.
That being said, Dylan might have learned the suave hair brush back while still looking directly at the camera from his grandfather, the legendary Kirk Douglas. That move is literally straight out of the movies.
Lily-Rose Depp, Daughter Of Johnny Depp And Vanessa Paradis
Thankfully, Lily-Rose Depp didn’t adopt her father Johnny Depp’s Pirates of the Caribbean dreadlocks and heavy eyeliner for her high school prom. Instead, she opted for some soft curls and minimal makeup, probably something she picked up from her French singer and model mother, Vanessa Paradis.
Either way, the Chanel model looks breathtaking in her nude-colored gown. What’s amazing is that no one behind her is staring. It must be a prom photoshoot of celebrities.
Jaden Smith, Son Of Will Smith And Jada Pinkett-Smith
Being the son of mega-stars Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith, prom is going to be more of a red carpet event. At least, that’s the way it looks for Jaden Smith and his less-than-impressed date, actress Odessa Adlon.
Wearing a fashion-forward suit paired with a chain-linked necklace, Jaden is bringing an entirely new “cool factor” to the traditional prom tuxedos with accompanying bow tie. This is how kids of celebrities do prom, evidently!
Gia Guidice, Daughter Of Teresa Giudice
Being a reality television star, Teresa Guidice is used to “being on” all of the time since cameras are typically right around the corner. That means perfect hair, makeup, and clothing at all times. It seems like she’s passed this bit of wisdom on to her daughter, Gia, who looks stunning for her prom.
In a lilac-colored gown with matching eyeshadow, Gia opted for a simpler look, foregoing accessories save her corsage. Just because she’s the daughter of a megastar doesn’t mean she needs to overdo it!
Alexandra Feely, Daughter Of Jay Feely
Alexandra Feely’s date’s expression says it all: this is not how normal teenagers do prom. Her father, Jay Feely, just so happens to be a former NFL placekicker and is now a sports commentator for the CBS Sports Network.
Ironically, even if Alexandra’s father wasn’t a good friend of Tom Brady’s, this photo is spot on with a typical teenager’s prom — a daughter looking at a dad while he stands in the middle of her and her date. You know, just dad things.
Kylie Jenner, Daughter Of Kris Jenner And Caitlyn Jenner
Reality stars Kris and Caitlyn Jenner did something right when it comes to their daughter Kylie. For prom, this “self-made” billionaire decided to arrive in style. Apparently, for Jenner, stretch limos were so last season, and private jets are the way to go!
Ironically, she wasn’t even on the way to her own prom since she was homeschooled and opted to start a cosmetics empire. Kylie and then-friend Jordan Woods decided to crash a junior prom in Sacramento, California! Only celebrities could get away with something like that.
Presley Gerber, Son Of Cindy Crawford
When you’re the son of legendary model Cindy Crawford, your prom appearance is going to look a bit different than the rest of your classmates. For Presley Gerber, that means ditching the tie or bow tie, popping a few collar buttons open, and going for an all-black ensemble to compliment his date’s white dress.
Needless to say, this then-16-year-old had a bit more fashion-forward prom than most. But, hey, it probably comes with the territory of being in a family full of famous models.
Harley Quinn Smith, Daughter of Kevin Smith
Jay and Silent Bob director Kevin Smith must have had a hard time letting his daughter Harley Quinn Smith out of the house on prom night. She just looks too pretty to send off with a teenage boy, even one as nice-looking as her date.
Either way, this isn’t a normal pre-prom party and photoshoot. Being the daughter of a famous director obviously means you go to school with some other celebrity kids. In Harley’s case, her best friend, Lily-Rose Depp.
Lottie Moss, Daughter Of Inger And Peter Edward Moss
While Inger and Peter Edward Moss might jot be “famous,” it’s safe to say Lottie Moss got a little prom pose inspiration for her famous supermodel older sister Kate Moss. Interestingly, even with high-profile designers probably knocking on her door asking to dress her for prom, Lottie did something unexpected.
Instead of going with a designer gown, she went with this stunning $60 off-the-shoulder Missguided floor-length dress. Maybe celebrities are just normal people, after all!
Aiyanna Epps, Daughter Of Omar Epps
Just because Omar Epps is a famous actor, known for his work in The Wood, Higher Learning, ER, and House, that doesn’t mean he won’t take time off to see his daughter Aiyanna off to prom.
This lovely photo shows Omar fastening his daughter’s choker necklace, which looks oddly like it’s made of diamonds. Well, kids of celebrities can only be like normal folks so much of the time, we suppose! This photo will be a cherished one, though, that’s for sure!
Yara Shahidi, Daughter Of Afshin Shahidi
Many kids fall into the shadows of their famous parents, but that isn’t the case for Yara Shahidi. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. While her father is a famous photographer in the world of Hollywood, his daughter is something of a TV superstar with her starring roles in Black-ish and Grown-ish.
But it doesn’t look like Shahidi wanted to bring any attention to herself on her prom day, opting not to use one of her dad’s nice cameras to capture herself in this dazzling green wrap dress.
Angelina Jolie, Daughter Of John Voight
See, now Angelina Jolie gets it — just because she’s the daughter of Academy Award-winning actor John Voight doesn’t mean her prom pictures need to be glamorous enough to be in a magazine spread.
Nope, the gorgeous Academy Award-winning actress actually went through an awkward stage where she didn’t wear makeup. Just tack on the chunky dress-up jewelry and school picture blue background, and it’s safe to say this isn’t how many modern-day children of celebrities do prom.
Bindi Irwin, Daughter Of Steve Irwin
The late crocodile hunter Steve Irwin would be so proud of his daughter Bindi on her prom night. She looked gorgeous in a classic black dress with lace sleeves, pulling her curled hair over one shoulder.
Honestly, this is a bit too normal for a family of zookeepers, though. So, let’s rewind the clock and add in a few wild animals. We’re talking koala bears, tortoises, and maybe a crocodile for good measure!
Shareef O’Neal, Son Of Shaquille O’Neal
Attending the private school Crossroads in Santa Monica, California, Shareef O’Neal’s prom looked different from everyday teenagers. But more so because he’s the son of Hall of Fame basketball player Shaquille O’Neal.
We mean, who else could pull off a white tuxedo with sunglasses while driving what we can only guess is most likely a car worth at least six digits? From the looks of his date’s face, this is definitely a night she will always remember.
Jennifer Aniston, Daughter Of Nancy Dow And John Aniston
Jennifer Aniston might be famous in her own right, but she was nothing more than a regular kid going to her high school prom once upon a time. Well, regular in the way a person is regular and normal when they have famous Hollywood stars as parents.
In this case, Aniston’s parents are Days of Our Lives star John Aniston and The Beverly Hillbillies actress Nancy Dow. Her date must have some stories to tell!
Hailie Mathers, Daughter Of Eminem
There is no way Hailie Mathers’ date is this calm in the presence of Eminem’s daughter. The rapper has sung about the love he has for his daughter on numerous occasions, so we doubt he would be anywhere else but taking pictures on her prom night.
Either way, considering who Hailie’s father is, this looks like a fairly normal occasion with the obligatory “I’m pinning the flower to my date” picture before the parents swoop in actually to do the pinning.
Reginae Carter, Daughter Of Lil Wayne And Toya Johnson
Some children of Hollywood stars go all out for their high school prom pictures. Then, there is Reginae Carter, the daughter of rap icon Lil Wayne and reality star Toya Johnson, who opted to do a sweet photo no matter how much she dazzled in a silver and gold dress and perfectly curled hair.
While she might look like the child of a megastar (because she is), Reginae took the time from her date and friends to pose with her normally-dressed mom on the “night of nights.”
Amara Lawrence, Daughter Of Martin Lawrence
It looks like Martin Lawrence took some time from his busy acting schedule to see his daughter Amara off to her high school prom. The Bad Boys actor and his former wife Shamicka Gibbs set aside their differences to get this precious picture with their daughter.
Of whom looks like she is about five seconds away from yelling at them both not to ruin her makeup with their kisses. Even though she’s the child of a Hollywood star, Amara is definitely still a typical teen, not wanting to be embarrassed by her parents.
Bella Murphy, Daughter Of Eddie Murphy
Leave it to comedian and Coming to America actor Eddie Murphy to show up to his daughter Bella’s prom photoshoot wearing a sweatsuit. But, parents will be parents no matter how famous, it would seem, and Bella sucked it up and took a picture with her father on the steps of their home.
Obviously, she steals the photo, looking gorgeous in a blue satin gown. Bella might have grabbed some Hollywood stylists, though, since her hair and makeup are way too on-point for a high schooler.
