This is classic late’70’s/early 80’s prom at its finest! She shows some definite style and it’s not at all the traditional “wedding cake” prom dress of the day. Man, I’d really love to see the prom dresses of the women who called this trashy! And give me a break, she’s all of 17 or 18 and who among us really had style down pat at that age? I think it’s pretty awesome, and shows the future first lady’s exploration into style. Like AzSoccermom says, the fabrics of the day were awful, and I wonder how we didn’t either sweat to death or burst into flames with all the polyester!
