Before they had professional stylists, makeup artists, and glamorous red carpet appearances, many celebrities had that special high school moment most dream about, prom. Dolling themselves up with questionable fashion choices to take pictures with their friends and dates, these A-listers celebrated that “night to remember” like so many other teenagers.
From the fashion catastrophes of the ’80s to sidebangs of the early 2000s, here are some stars like you’ve never seen them before: in all of their awkward high school prom glory.
John Stamos Before Becoming Suave Uncle Jesse
In the late ’70s, John Stamos attended John F. Kennedy High School in La Palma, California. Little did this big-haired and white-tuxedo-wearing teenager know, but he was about to land his first acting gig in 1982, in General Hospital.
Then a short five years later, Stamos’ life changed. He landed the role of Uncle Jesse in Full House. His prom date probably has more than a few “I remember when” stories when it comes to this guy!
