EMBARRASSING CELEBRITY PROM PHOTOS

Wednesday, July 06, 2016

Prom season is winding down. Many of you have already purchased your gown or tux, secured your transportation, and prom-posed in the best way possible. Some of you may have already danced the night away. Regardless of where you are in your prom timeline, we know there will be lots of pictures to document your evening. And with the countless pictures being taken, some are bound to be not-so-flattering. 

Embarrassing photos can haunt us for the rest of our life, but no one has to worry about embarrassing photos coming out of nowhere like celebrities. No matter how hard they try to hide then, someone always finds them and shares them with the rest of us.

We picked the top five funniest/most embarrassing celebrity prom photos for your enjoyment. We tried to avoid choosing pictures that were embarrassing because of the fashion of the time. Trends are around for a reason and we all indulge!

So without further ado here they are.

   

Taylor Swift

Her hair and make-up are flawless, and her dress looks timeless. However, her date with his backwards baseball cap, and throwing up the "west coast" hand gesture makes this picture one we would want hidden from millions of people seeing. 

    

Taylor Lautner

We have another Taylor on our list. Movie star (and ex boyfriend of the previously mentioned Taylor) has no one to blame for this embarrassing picture but himself. His date is absolutely stunning, but she is overshadowed by the all of Taylor's hair taking up the picture.

Will Ferrell

Funny man, Will Ferrell, rocking a tiara to prom? Something tells me he is very proud of this picture and probably has this framed on his desk.

 

Ru Paul

I don't think we would expect anything less than dramatic from Mr. Ru Paul. His prom photo, complete with clown shoes, shows he never shied from making a statement.

Michelle Obama

Last, but certainly not least, is the First Lady. If we overlook the wicker throne she is sitting on, I don't think anyone could miss the slit in her dress. I wonder if her daughters will want the same style dress for their prom?

 

I am sure there are countless other embarrassing prom pictures out there, but we wanted to share our five favorite. You just cant help but snicker when you wonder what went through these people's minds!

Do you have any embarrassing prom pictures? What about your parents or grandparents? We would love to see them if you did!

We hope you had a fun and safe prom season!

HOW TO BUY A TUXEDO

Wednesday, July 06, 2016

Now that you've weighed all your options and you know you’ll be using a tuxedo on at least a yearly basis, buying is definitely in your best interest. Here are some tips that will help you purchase a tuxyou’ll actually enjoy wearing.

  1. It should be dark. Yes, you could creative and get the purple tuxedo, but black is a much more widely accepted tuxedo color. If not black, you might go with charcoal grey or midnight blue. 
  2. Keep it light. Dancing and tuxedos go hand in hand. Consider wearing a  heavy tux that’ll have you sweating by the second song.
  3. Come see a professional (Mr. Burch of course) As with any major purchase, you’re going to want to look around. Even if you fall in love with the first tux you see, try others. Of course our professional staff will there to help.
  4. Consider buying a former rental tux. We take great care of of our rental tuxes.  Just be sure to try it on first and closely examine it for wear and tear.
  5. Go for something simple. Tails and vests and other accessories can complicate a tux. Go for the simple but stylish bow tie plus cummerbund combination and you’ll never look out of place.
  6. Buy the whole set together. The coat and trousers should come from the same designer and match each other perfectly. You’ll probably want to buy the shirt in the same place so you can make sure it goes well with the rest of the outfit.

Okay men, don't complain about buying a buying a tuxedo. After all, women need to buy formal dresses too, and they can’t get away with wearing the same one to every event as easily as you can with the same tux. So if you have lots of formal events in your future, take a day to do a bit of shopping and you’ll be ready for for any fancy shindig on a moment’s notice and for a lot less money than your rental-only friends.  For more information on buying a tuxedo, contact Mr. Burch at (205) 252-3602.
