The hallways of Llanview High School are filled with excitement and anticipation as all the kids prepare for prom! This year's event is not, unfortunately, entirely musical as it was a couple years back. However, we do get the Pussycat Dolls performing, so that's some consolation. If there's one thing we love about prom besides stolen kisses behind the bleachers, it's gorgeous prom fashion! So we dialed up "One Life to Live" costume designer extraordinaire Susan Gammie to get some dish on what all the kids will be wearing on the big night. Susan says she's most interested in how fashion "tells the story and how it reveals the character." Click over to SoapNet for more style and entertainment stories!
For some, prom isn't about the cute date, the cute dress, or the cute bag... it's the cute shoes! And, why not? It's fitting that you would pay extra special attention to what goes on your feet since you'll be on them all night, dancing it away! And of course, the wrong pair of heels could destroy your outfit -- you don't want to be the stand-out girl in the prom group pic with an embarrassing set of mom's couture-crumbling, hand-me down backups. While a great pair of shoes can match any outfit, an affair as awesome as prom is a case for some new kicks. The old, "your shoes MUST match your bag" rule has been modified since its old-wives' era inception, but like your prom bag, your shoe choice should still be a conscientious compliment to your outfit. Rhinestones, straps, gold and bit of gaud are all fair game on your prom night, so when it comes to style, as long as your steps are in check with your gown, you're ready to hit the town!
