Prom fashions 2013

The prom is a very important part of a student’s last year in high school, with many taking months to prepare for the big night.
“It’s like a rite of passage,” said senior Beth Biles. “It’s the last big hurrah before graduation with everyone getting together, dancing and having fun.”
Biles and 19 other senior students modeled the latest formal gowns and tuxedos in the annual National Honor Society- sponsored Prom Fashion Show at the school on Friday. Lovely gowns were provided by Sheila Carr at the Country Bumpkin, tuxedos by the Cat’s Meow, and stage decoration by Tiger Lily Florist. 
Prom fashions are certainly making a statement that won’t be forgotten soon, with bright colors, sequins, florals, cut-outs and classic looks, as well as dramatic looks setting the stage.
The high-low gowns are once again popular, as well as ball gowns and form fitting styles. Possibly one of the most attention grabbers is the rompers with flowing overskirts.
Student Chelsey Simerly rocked her pale pink sequin encrusted romper with a chiffon overskirt embellished with rhinestones. 
“I love it,” said Simerly. “It’s so different, very cute and also comfortable.”
Megan Dishman and Rachel Nokes were mistress of ceremonies for the fashion show, introducing the models and entertainers. Student groups presented various entertainment displays, such as Beyonce and her back-up dancers, the Barden Bellas, and Bruno Mars and Monkeys.
Most of the students realize fashion rules apply, but it’s their right to wear their favorite style and what suits their personality. The most important part is to feel good about the choice, and to enjoy the big evening.
The Warren County High School prom will be April 26 at McMinnville Civic Center.
