Lorraine Back To The Future Prom Dress

Back to the Future Prom Dresses

These women weren’t necessarily the sexiest prom queens of their day, but no doubt all looked fabulous in their dresses. From simple LBDs with embellishment or shimmery metallic gold gowns, to eye-catching metallic numbers with shimmer, these ladies made sure they turned heads at the big dance.

From the 1980s through the 1990s, high school girls adorned prom dresses that exuded high drama. While fighting for their lives or looking for serial killers may have been stressful experiences for these ladies, they still managed to look beautiful while doing it!

While most teen movies focus on the struggles of high school life, this film focused on fashion trends of its time. Molly Ringwald’s character Andie made headlines for wearing an eye-catching pink gown featuring beaded details that made it appear similar to bridal attire at her senior prom.

Though not the star dress in a high school movie, this outfit from a classic teen classic was certainly unforgettable. Fashion from the ’80s either makes us love or hate it and this film definitely showcased iconic looks like pastel Laura Ashley floral blouses as well as stonewashed jeans and waistcoats from that era.

Rosewood High School students of the 1980s reflected this by donning elegant gowns with curls for formal events and sporting red strapless mermaid gowns reminiscent of wedding gowns that would become known as their signature look – but Andie Walsh of Rosewood stood out by wearing an eye-catching pink and red strapless mermaid gown that became known as her “Pretty in Pink” look that got everyone talking.

Lea Thompson played Lorraine Baines McFly in Back to the Future. She falls for Marty when he doesn’t yet realize he’s her son; Lea is drawn to prim Peter Pan collars and butter wouldn’t melt day dresses; no wonder Lea chose such a gorgeous pink prom dress.

Back to the Future is full of unforgettable outfits, such as Lorraine’s 1950s prom dress that she purchased at Ruth’s Frock Shop and later wore at Enchantment Under the Sea prom. The outfit consists of a pink and grey plaid skirt with matching belt, pink bow at neck and handwritten American Costume label – an absolute must for any fan of the film! Available for purchase through Amazon and other stores at $399.99, fans of the film should definitely give this costume their consideration.
