Hepburn, Marilyn, Beyonce, Colette. Classic prom dress styles from Colette by Daphne are inspired by the glamorous looks, and the icons that wore them, seen on the red carpet throughout the years, decades, and centuries -- roaring '20s to roaring '20s, baby. The 16th century Victorian era brings us sleeveless dresses with Venice lace, while old Hollywood glitz and glam romanticizes a one-shoulder or strapless neckline on a soft satin, Mikado or shimmer stretch sheath gown with a natural waist, high thigh slit and sweep train. Classic prom dresses from Colette by Daphne are for the girl that wants a prom dress she could've rocked at Gatsby's party and one that will still be in style in 2094.
