It was soooo much fun attending NBC’s TODAY SHOW’s weekend prom last Saturday! This edition of  “Weekend Movie Ticket” produced by the amazing Joelle Garguilo focused on three different prom genres of movies; Classic- Comedy and Horror. Some of our movie pics were, Footloose, Mean Girls, Pretty in Pink, Carrie and Back to the Future. 

Willie Geist, Erica Hill, Chuck Nice and Erik Davis and myself all came to play in our greatest 80’s prom gear! Willie and Erica were ‘pretty in pink’ as prom sweethearts. Comedian Chuck Nice was suited up in his best pink Miami Vice suit and movie critic Erik Davis sported his best Kevin Bacon red velvet jacket.  And no prom would be complete with out its PROM QUEEN!  Here I am with my QUEEN SASH over a puffy organza 80’s dress that the amazing Deb in wardrobe found for me. Thank you ladies in hair and makeup you did an incredible job on my Flight of Seagulls hair!

Since it IS prom season I am so excited to give a shout out to my gorgeous niece, Ada who is going to be attending prom soon. Here’s her beautiful dress she got from a great site www.promgirl.com. If you haven’t been there yet check out their site for some knockout dresses! THANK YOU PROMGIRL!  

My Senior Prom at FM High school was in 1991 up in Central NY. The girls wore more of a cocktail style dress than a ball gown. We also wore big jewelry and lots and lots of hairspray. 

 The most risqué dress MAYBE showed your bare shoulders. Check out my prom crew and yes those were stockings I was wearing and my “Julia Roberts in Steel Magnolias” inspired hair. I guess were were at one our houses right before heading out for prom.

There I am in the left corner and I still have that dress in my mother’s “keepsake” closet. The other girls look so cute but I covered up their  faces just in case they want their pic out there. Hey ladies if you see this pic and want to see your face! Tell me!
