A gorgeous twist on a classic

Prom is usually a sea of shimmering taffeta and cascading tulle ruffles, but some girls know that less is more. Instead of a gown that's exploding with frilly details and over-the-top patterns, why not opt for something so simple and gorgeous that you're sure to be the talk of the evening? Aimee Teegarden knows what we mean - this pretty young ingénue went for an updated Grecian look that was uncomplicated yet so intriguing that we just couldn't wait to share it with you.

Appropriately, Teegarden wore this breathtaking gown at the premiere of the new movie Prom - and we think she's the perfect example of just how beautiful you, too, can look on the biggest night of high school. The silver floor-length column dress featured a strapless sweetheart neckline and plenty of shiny silver beads to give it texture and depth. For a gal with such a thin figure, Teegarden managed to give herself some stunning curves thanks to a cinched waist and a flattering décolletage that emphasized her small bust.

The dress is a great example of how sticking to the classics doesn't have to be boring. Look for a gown that features an established shape - like an A-line, a Grecian-inspired look or a sheath - and pick out special textures and colors to give it a modern twist. Throw in a few bold accessories, and voila! You'll be looking glamorous and flirty in no time
