"I was so in love with the shape of this Jessica McClintock dress. I thought the mermaid silhouette was so glamorous, and I loved the bit of tulle on the bottom. It was my first time at prom (going as a sophomore with my boyfriend at the time, who was a senior), and I wanted to totally do it up. I remember stepping out to show off the dress to my date and my parents — it was such a huge moment . . . the big reveal. I loved it."
