For kids, especially teens, prom night is their version of a big fancy party. Some would even classify it as a red-carpet event. It’s an occasion where they get to dress up in their prettiest, most expensive gowns, shoes, accessories, and suits and have fun with all their friends in school. For most of them, it’s a night they will never forget.

And that goes for teens with celeb parents, too. In fact, it can be pretty interesting to see what they choose to wear, who they choose to bring, and how their parents celebrate the moment with them. That’s why we’ve gone above and beyond to bring you this enthralling list of some of the best-dressed celeb kids on prom night. Have a look!

Chance Combs

Anyone with even the slightest bit of knowledge of the hip-hop industry must have heard the name “P Diddy” once or twice. Sure, he’s changed his name several times over the decade, but we have all kept up with the updates. The American rapper is a father to five amazing kids.

One of his five kids, Chance Combs, attended prom this year dazzling all her followers on Instagram with the gorgeous white dress she wore. It had got a lovely thigh-high slit, a heart neckline, and loads of silver sequins on it that matched her silver heels.

Milania Giudice

The Real Housewives franchise is one of the biggest reality shows ever. We might not be the most avid watchers, but we know it stars a host of women, one being Teresa Giudice. She is one of the stars of The Real Housewives Of New Jersey

This media personality is the mother of three amazing girls, the middle named Milania Giudice. The 17-year-old donned a sleek teal gown made from a silk-like material, with a low cut back and some green lace detail on the upper portion of the dress. Absolutely gorgeous!

Buddy Jr. and Marco Valastro

We’re not the biggest experts when it comes to the world of culinary arts, but we know some of the most popular celeb chefs are Gordon Ramsey, Bobby Flay, and Guy Fieri, amongst others. And when it comes to baking, Buddy Valastro is one of the top men on the list.

But Buddy is much more than a celeb baker with his own show. He’s also the father of three, a lady named Sofia and two boys who went off to prom in 2020. You can spot him in the picture above, standing between Buddy Jr. and Marco with a big smile on his face.

Heaven Hart

Comedian and actor Kevin Hart has dominated the screen and stand-up shows ever since he broke into the scene. Besides acting and making us laugh, he’s also a dedicated father of four, one of them being the gorgeous Heaven Hart.

For prom, she wore a long emerald green dress that complimented her skin tone. It was off-shoulder and had a thigh-high slit up her right leg. In a different photo, she was seen with sneakers for backup in case those strapped heels became too much! Smart girl.

Ryder Fieri

We just love it when couples decide to go matchy-matchy, even if it’s in the subtlest, most intricate ways possible. That’s precisely why we adored this lovely picture of Guy Fieri’s 17-year-old son off to prom in his junior year.

The celeb chef’s son, Ryder, shared a slew of pictures of his date as well as his father and mother before he went out for the lovely night. He was dressed in all black with a red bow tie that matched his girlfriend’s dress.

Jack Barlow

One of our favorite parts of compiling this collection was seeing how the kids dressed and coordinated themselves on the special day. It reveals a lot about their personalities and their sense of style. Just look at Jack, the son of a Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star.

In an Instagram post, Lisa Barlow shared pictures of her son posing in front of a Porsche. She praised him and his incredible style before he headed for prom in the lovely lavender suit he had on. How proud a mom she must be!

Avery Grace Sehorn

To be an actress and a model thriving in Hollywood takes a lot of skill and talent, and Angie Harmon has all that and more. She graced the covers of big-time magazines like Cosmopolitan and Esquire at a pretty young age.

Now a grown woman, she’s got two kids, one (pictured in the middle) who went off to prom in 2023. Avery stunned in a red gown for her junior prom. She is pictured beside her mother and younger sister, Finley Faith. From the photos, the girls certainly took after their mom’.’s gorgeous looks!

Adeline and Stella Beador

Raising kids can be one heck of an emotional rollercoaster. It especially hits you hard when you notice how much they’ve grown and become their own people. That’s why parents get so emotional whenever their kids cross a milestone, like these twins’ mom.

TV personality Shannon Beador revealed in a series of posts that she felt emotional knowing it was her daughters’ last prom before they went off to college. The girls, Adeline and Stella, are pictured above with one wearing a light green corseted dress while the other stunned in a bejeweled black gown.

Sofia Pagan

Of all the proms a teen could possibly attend, the one that commemorates their senior year is usually the most exciting and the most memorable. It’s one of their last moments in high school before they’re off to college. Pictured below is the daughter of the actress Leah Remini.

Sofia Bella Pagan is her only kid, and in 2023, she attended her senior prom. She wore a gorgeous green dress for the event with a high slit and is pictured beside her mom and dad. From the balloons and decor at the back, it’s clear the event was a big celebration.

Charli D’Amelio

You don’t have to be the kid of a big-time Hollywood star to land on this list, oh no. We love a self-made star, and the American internet sensation Charli D’Amelio certainly qualifies on that front. The teen went viral on TikTok for her dancing and choreography.

charlidamelio / Instagram

She now has more than 125 million followers on the platform and a growing number on Instagram, where she posted these pictures of her and her friends going to prom. She wore a lime green dress with cutouts at the front that were absolutely gorgeous.

Zahra Rock

As a loving parent, one of the worst pains you could possibly experience is missing one of your kids’ milestones and important events. That’s probably how Malaak Compton Rock, Chris Rock’s ex-wife, must have felt when she missed her daughter Lola’s prom and eighteenth birthday.

malaak_compton_rock / Instagram

It happened during the pandemic, so she couldn’t make it. However, for her other daughter Zahra, she was very much present and supportive for her birthday, graduation and prom. The picture above is of Zahra and her date before they left for prom.

Nick and Max Dubrow

You know what’s even more special than watching one of your kids growing up and attending prom? It’s got to be watching two of them do that. Celeb surgeon Terry Dubrow is married to one of the stars of The Real Housewives of Orange County, and together, they share twins.

heatherdubrow / Instagram

During their senior year, the boys decided to go with a Miami vice theme. They struck a pose for the cam with their beautiful dates, capturing the moment in a gorgeous photo their mom, Heather Dubrow, was happy to post on Instagram.

Bronny James

When you’re one of the best basketball players that has ever graced the NBA, it’s a given that many people will want to know more about you and your family. Bronny James, the first of LeBron James’ two sons, attended prom in the summer of 2023.

chromeheartsupdates / Instagram

He posed for pictures with his mother, Savanna James, as he stunned in a lovely black suit. His mom tagged Dior and Chrome Hearts in the photos they took before heading off to the dance with his girlfriend, whom he accompanied to her own prom the previous year.

Deacon Phillippe

Sometimes, we love seeing pictures of celeb kids just to see how much they resemble their famous parents. For kids like Shiloh Jolie Pitt, we can say it’s almost an even split between Angelina and Brad, but for Deacon, he seems to be leaning more toward his mom.

deaconphilippe / Instagram

The singer and actor is the son of Hollywood giants Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Philippe. He wore a nice ash suit with a matching tie for prom. More than anything else, we love the pink flower he put on his suit pocket. 

Leni Klum

When your mom is one of the biggest supermodels in the world, you don’t need to look far and wide to find a prom dress to stun in. The first child of the German model, Heidi Klum, attended prom in her mom’s dress.

leniklum / Instagram

The then eighteen-year-old stepped out in a black strapless dress famously won by Heidi in 1998, simple makeup, and a fancy silver bag. She was the epitome of minimalistic elegance. Leni posed for pictures and later posted them on Instagram.

Evan Asher

Actress and model Jenny Wahlberg McCarthy is a proud mother to a lovely boy named Evan Asher, whom she co-parents with her spouse, Donnie Wahlberg, and ex-husband, John Asher. The boy went to prom in 2022 with his stunning date.

jennymccarthy / Instagram

He’s seen in the picture above, towering over his sweetheart in a black suit and pink bowtie to match his partner’s dress. We also like the little pocket square peering over his pocket that also coordinated with her dress. What a lovely touch!

Isabella Strahan

Another thing we like seeing in these photos beyond the clothing has to be how happy all the kids and parents seem. High school is a crucial time when people grow into themselves, so after completing such a milestone, it makes sense that everyone would be all smiles.

isabellastrahan / Instagram

New York Giants star, TV personality, and journalist, Michael Strahan is the father of the lovely girl in the light blue dress, Isabella Strahan. She color-coordinated with her date, who wore a blue bow tie and coordinating pocket square. They even got matching hair colors down!

Roman Peete

Another joy parents experience is seeing their kids enjoying their time out with friends. It brings out a special kind of thrill, which we think is exactly how Holly Robinson Peete must have felt when Roman Peete went to prom in 2022.

hollyrpeete / Instagram

Roman (the second boy from the left) was sharply dressed in a nice black suit with a matching black shirt alongside some of his friends. Bronny James, who we saw earlier, is also in the picture, standing in the middle. 

Rowan Francis

When your mother is a big-time Hollywood star, it is expected that she’s got a fantastic elite-level closet to match. That’s the case with the forever-stunning Brooke Shields, who lent one of her beautiful pieces to her daughter for prom.

brookeshields / Instagram

Much like Heidi Klum and her daughter Leni, Rowan Francis wore a stunning red dress from Brooke’s closet when she attended her prom in 2021. It was the strapless dress Brooke wore to the 1998 Golden Globes ceremony, and it looked just as amazing on Rowan.

Natalia Bryant

We love seeing a kid walk in their parents’ footsteps, and Natalia is shaping up to be a star just like her dad, basketball legend Kobe Bryant. She’s doing her own thing and enjoying her wonderful life as it progresses.

nataliabryant / Instagram

This was what she sported for her senior prom in 2021, and we’ve got to say, she looks absolutely gorgeous. The pink flowy ballroom gown-styled dress looks absolutely killer on her, and that smile, we just can’t look away from it!

Lola Conseulos

These celeb kids are often not quite far off from their parents when it comes to their character and attitude. That’s why we often know every detail of their lives, including their relationships status and everything else going on in their lives.

kellyripa / Instagram

In 2019, the talk show host Kelly Ripa shared a lovely photo of her daughter, Lola Conseulos, in a green dress with her date. It was the exact date Lola had attended prom the previous year. She has attended that event with the same guy as well, which makes us happy for her.

Sascha Seinfeld

Recently, there’s been a lot of conversation online about kids not dressing age appropriately and showing way too much than they should to look much older than they really are. While we can’t say anything on the matter, we think Sascha looks drop-dead gorgeous.

jessseinfeld / Instagram

If it wasn’t obvious enough from that big smile on her face, the daughter of the legendary comedian Jerry Seinfeld attended prom in 2019 dressed in this stunning ruched royal blue dress. She looks super happy and so does her date!

Gia Giudice

You didn’t think we’d mention Milania and leave out her older sister now, did you? Just as she stunned for her prom in 2023, so did Gia a bit earlier. Just like her sister, Gia has their mom’s eyes and gorgeous looks that were accentuated by her dress.

giagiudice / Instagram

The first daughter of Teresa Giudice looked more than happy as she went off for her prom. Gia donned a gown with spaghetti straps and stunning embellishments throughout the fabric. She topped off the look with gorgeous makeup and an amazing hairdo.

Amelia Gray Hamlin

We love to see people go beyond the norm, and that’s what we think Amelia did when she opted for comfy converses instead of the expected heels for prom. She rocked the look as she attended the event with Mercer Weiderhorn.

lisarinna / Instagram

She rocked a bodycon dress and the cherry red really looked stunning on her. The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills TV personality has now moved on from high school to be a model where she absolutely kills it on the runway.

Ariana Biermann

What’s the point of having such an awesome night if you don’t make memories and take pictures to remember the amazing moment forever? Nothing is too over the top, and that’s what we think Ariana had in mind for this shot and her dress.

arianabiermann / Instagram

The second daughter of the reality TV show star Kim Zolciak-Biermann basically stole the show and all our hearts when she went out in this low-cut lace strapless dress and silver platform heels. We also love the romantic photoshoot she did with her cute date.

Dylan Douglas

It’s great to look cool and all, but we like people who bring a touch of elegance to an event, and that’s what we feel Dylan Douglas must have done when he went to prom dressed up like this. Does it really get any sharper than the classic tuxedo?

catherinezetajones / Instagram

The son of Hollywood giants Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas attended his senior prom a while back. His mother couldn’t help but gush about him in an Instagram post she made on her page. You can clearly see what he got from each parent!

Jaden Smith

Sometimes, it doesn’t hurt to dish out one or two fashion statements, even if you’re just off to a simple prom event. Jaden Smith was more than ready to serve when he stepped out to attend prom dressed like this in 2018.

jaden / Instagram

He wore a unique suit with matching black kicks to go, no tux shirt underneath, and one heck of a piece of jewelry around his neck. Known for his presence on social media, it was no surprise he posted the photo on Twitter with a simple caption.

Yara Shahidi

Much like Amelia Gray Hamlin above, Yara Shahidi had very much the same approach when it came to her prom style in 2017. Ballroom, high-low, and mermaid dresses must not have resonated with her, so she decided to go for this instead.

yarashahidi / Instagram

The then-teen star wore a two-toned green tiered midi dress for her event. She paired the gorgeous gown with a pair of Nicholas Kirkwood heels, hoop earrings, and a gorgeous black clutch purse. We love how she kept the makeup minimal, showcasing her natural beauty.

Cori Broadus

Being the only daughter in the family often means you get certain privileges, including being pampered and spoiled and having the whole family rooting for you. That is definitely the case in this family, and why everyone seems so stoked.

coribroadus / Instagram

The only daughter of legendary rapper and actor Snoop Dogg and his lovely wife, Shante Broadus, Cori dazzled when she attended her prom in a chocolate brown dress. We love how the whole family showed up for her at the event.

Reginae Carter

Speaking of legendary rappers, P Diddy and Snoop Dogg aren’t the only OG’s whose daughters rocked prom night with their stunning looks on this list. Reginae Carter, the beautiful daughter of one of the most influential hip-hop artists, Lil Wayne, also did the same!

toyajohnson / Instagram

Her proud mom, the TV personality Toya Johnson, posted this picture on Instagram, showing off her daughter’s flawless look on the night. Reginae stunned in a beaded golden dress and had her hair all glammed up to complete her look.

Rowan Blanchard

You know you’ve hit it big when you land on any Time’s list, and this girl is someone who has. An entry on the magazine’s list of most influential teens in 2015, Rowan Blanchard is an actress who ate up her look during her prom in 2017.

rowanblanchard / Instagram

She seemed very ecstatic, posting this picture Yara Shahidi took of her. The two stars attended prom together since they are very close friends. The dress is Rodarte and we just adore how calm and effortlessly beautiful she looked here.

Gaten Matarazzo

Is there anything as precious and pure as young love? Stranger Things star Gaten Matarazzo got us “awing” to the pictures he posted of himself and his wonderful girlfriend, Lizzy Yu, on their night of glitz and glamour back in 2019.

gatenm123 / Instagram

After the one above, several other pictures followed on the same post, most of them including him and a slew of all his friends, as well as their dates, dressed to have a wonderful night. It was a junior prom we’re sure he’ll never forget.

Jalaah Moore

For anyone, having a big-time celeb attend their prom must be a dream. For this young lady, it was more than reality seeing as that A-list celeb was the one and only Drake! He showed up with his little cousin to chaperone her on the big night.

hyfr_jalaah / Instagram

Jalaah herself stunned in a nice pixie cut and a shiny pink gold dress. We love the fact her lovely date matched her energy with a blazer of the same color. She captioned the picture above, calling it the best day ever and we couldn’t agree more.

Lily-Rose Depp

Although everyone knows her as the daughter of one of Hollywood’s finest actors, Johnny Depp, and the enthralling French singer, Vanessa Paradis, Lily-Rose Depp has made a name for herself in the modeling and acting industry. But before that, she was a regular high schooler.

emmacoopercarlson / Instagram

As such, she did all kinds of regular highschool girl things, like attending prom! The then 17-year old is pictured above (first girl on the left) alongside two of her friends. We love the peach dress with scale details. It looks stunning on her.

Ariel Winter

Now, not many teens can pull off a bombshell look on any occasion (especially prom) and we do not blame them. They’re still kids, after all. But that’s not the case for everyone, especially not the Modern Family actress Ariel Winter.

arielwinter / Instagram

Looking drop-dead gorgeous, she stunned at prom in 2016. Ariel dazzled up in a figure-hugging black and flesh-toned lace gown with the prettiest sweetheart neckline. Her hair was a beautiful shade of red and went down her right shoulder. Simply stunning!

Elle Fanning

Some people just wave off prom as a cliche school event. That’s why they don’t put in too much effort in making themselves look unique or go the extra mile when it comes to the night. Not Elle Fanning, though.

ellefanning / Instagram

The American actress and Maleficent star looked like an actual princess from a fairy tale in that Zuhair Murad Couture dress and the Tifanny & Co. jewelry she wore because… well, why not? Not sure if there was a benchmark before but she’s certainly surpassed it.

Ming Lee Simmons

You know what could make a prom dress even more special? When there’s a touch of heart in it, and Ming Lee Simmons’ dress for her junior prom had a little more than that. It was made by her wonderful mom, Kimora Lee Simmons.

kimoraleesimmons / Instagram

Kimora is not just a model and businesswoman. She’s also the mother of three amazing kids (the eldest being Ming above) and a fashion designer who made this gold satin dress for her daughter. It’s such an amazing gift to get from your mum.

Shareef O’Neal

When you’re the son of one of the greatest basketball players to have ever lived, you best believe you’re going to have a lot of eyes on you at all times, even on your prom night. Shareef O’Neal looked amazing in his white suit and black pants for prom.

iamshaunie / Instagram

The son of sports legend Shaquille O’Neal and his loving wife, Shaunie O’Neal, attended prom in 2018 with his gorgeous date, who stunned in a black dress. Although they didn’t exactly do the typical matchy-matchy thing, they still looked like an awesome pair.

Aoki Lee Simmons

It would be totally unfair of us to write all about big sis and ignore the little one when pictures of her prom night were well-documented on Instagram. The second daughter of Kimora Lee Simmons also stunned during her prom.

aokileesimmons / Instagram

The then 15-year-old, Aoki was all glammed up in a purple satin dress. She went ultra simple with the spaghetti strapped gown and minimal jewelry. The gorgeous celeb kid is pictured above alongside three of her friends who also looked amazing.

Jeffrey Atkins

There’s no reason why you can’t go all out on prom night, especially when your parents have the cash and property to spare. From what we see below, that’s exactly what rapper, Ja Rule’s son did for his prom in 2018.

jarule / Instagram

He’s seen above standing in front of a beautiful car with his pretty date. We love how they’re both dressed in black and how excited they look. Jeffrey, a trailblazer in his own right, went against the norm, sporting some sneakers instead of the regular Oxfords.
