However she didn’t anticipate just how well he’d scrub up and soon she’s falling for him.
The prom dresses: This deep blue dress was a sensation at the time with girls all over America desperately trying to find replicas.
2. Ten Things I Hate About You: The Simple Prom Dress (1999)
Kat and Patrick are thrown together after Cameron needs Kat to come along on a double date with Kat’s sister Bianca.

Kat’s not the type of girl to go to prom, but in the end she goes along to chaperone her little sister. Kat and Patrick make up and all’s well that ends well.
The prom dresses: Kat wears a blue liquid satin with a V-neck and spaghetti straps. Pretty understated as far as prom dresses go but that didn’t stop girls all around the world from falling in love with it.

The prom dresses: Not all pink prom dresses are made equal. While Andie’s pink polka dot creation may draw gasps of horror now, but in the 80s it was drawing gasps of admiration. It’s a lesson in just how badly prom dresses can date if you don’t choose something classic!
