Prom Night ’07

May 8th, 2007 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

Looking over pictures from last night’s Costume Institute gala, held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NY, I realized that this annual fashism industry event is nothing more than Prom Night.

As some of you know, I went to a big, public high-school in Shitsburg, Texas that was equal parts Friday Night Lights and Jesus Camp. Good times. The Homecoming football game and Prom were the two biggest events of our school year. Prom especially, because not only would we crown a King and Queen, but we would also hand out other “superlatives,” like Most Likely to Succeed and Class Clown, and the more obscure and sometimes obtuse Cute as a Bow & Button, Most Versatile (read: slutty) and Most Organized. That night, I was rocking the big Texas hair, a teal, shirred taffeta dress, and fuschia Lee Press-On nails, and I took home the dubious distinction of “Most Studious.” It was, in a word, humiliating awesome. Life has been all downhill from there.

But now it’s MY TURN to hand out superlatives…for the Met Ball. Just a sec, getting the claws out…and ready!
