PROM IS THE BIGGEST NIGHT OF THEIR LIVES! Well not REALLY! But back in high school it certainly felt like it. Mostly because Hollywood made it such a HUGE deal in the amazing teen movies and television shows of the 80's and 90's. Some of my fave Prom moments are in movies like Romy and Michele's High School Reunion, She's All That, Drive Me Crazy, Whatever It Takes, and Not Another Teen Movie just to name a fab few! Remember that scene in She's All That where everyone at Prom did the dance that Usher taught them? I was in heaven the first time I witnessed it. I always wanted to do that at Prom!
Thankfully the people at Joonbug and Fashion Indie have the same love for all things Prom! They Presented Prom: Class of 2010 on Saturday, May 8, 2010. The event was hosted by Fashion Designer Rebecca Minkoff, Paul Iacono star of MTV's The Hard Times of RJ Berger, Jared Eng of JustJared.com, High Society's Devorah Rose, Rescue Me's Callie Thorne, Micah Jesse of MicahJesse.com and Nightlife Trendsetter Sally Shan.

As soon as I walked in I was instantly taken back to my high school prom. I had the exact same feeling of just wanting to get really crunk and dance the night away! There is just something about a good Prom theme in May that gets you going. They even had the prom tables and chairs that totally completed the entire feel of Prom.

Another amazing thing about the Prom themed event is that there was even a King and Queen of the Prom! (Said with a gasp like in Romy and Michele). I was really happy when I was asked if they could take my picture to be submitted for Prom King. I am not going to lie, I was kinda devastated that I did not take the crown, but the people that won looked totally Promtastic!

The best part of the night is when I met the true Queen of the Prom, Rebecca Minkoff. She is such a nice person and always puts on great events! Rebecca and I even had a fun Twitter exchange while at the event:
JonValdez: Just met @rebeccaminkoff! She is such a doll! She looked great in her spring/summer 2010!
RebeccaMinkoff: @Jonvaldez Thank you kind sir! U look pretty hot urself!

I had an amazing time at the Prom event dancing the night away to amazing pop songs. It was the perfect event to kick off summer, just like back in high school.
I leave you with this epic pic that pretty much sums up the night:
