The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star experienced prom for the very first time in 2019, thanks to one of her biggest fans.
Narbeh, a high school student who runs an Instagram account dedicated to Kardashian’s famous family, was overwhelmed with excitement over his famous prom date.
“Took @khloekardashian as my date to prom… so many more photos to come. I’m feeling over the moon,” he captioned an Instagram post of the two of them posing for photos at his prom’s photo booth.
Kardashian reciprocated the love by commenting on Narbeh’s post with four red heart emojis.
After learning that the Olympic gold medalist had never been to his own prom, Pennsylvania teen Carly Monzo posted a video online titled “GoProm?,” asking him to be her date to her 2014 senior dance.
White never responded directly to Monzo’s request, leading her to believe that he had never seen it. Instead, the snowboarder contacted the school to plan a big surprise. During the dance, the dean of students called Monzo up to the stage. Once the curtains were raised, White and his band, Bad Things, started playing.
“It was crazy,” she told CBS Philly. “I was speechless!”
One year after the singer and former BFF Selena Gomez crashed a prom following the premiere of their 2009 Disney Channel film Princess Protection Program, Lovato returned to her hometown of Dallas to fulfill a longtime promise: to attend prom with guy friend Nolan Nardecchia.
Wearing a long, red, strapless gown, the star posted a picture of herself posing with her date, along with the caption, “A promise made in kindergarten finally coming true … Prom with Nolan!” Lovato’s then-boyfriend Joe Jonas even rented a Rolls Royce for the star to drive to the dance, making sure she and her friends arrived in style.
She may not have been Jake Davidson’s first choice, but model Agdal certainly wasn’t a bad backup date, either.
In March 2013, the Los Angeles high schooler asked Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition cover girl Kate Upton to be his prom date via a YouTube video. Upton replied that she was hoping to fit the dance into her packed schedule, but in the end, the supermodel wasn’t able to make it work. That’s when Inside Edition stepped in, setting Davidson up with another striking model.
“It was a surreal experience,” Davidson told HuffPost after the dance, saying that he and Agdal actually had a lot in common. “I told her anytime she’s in L.A. she can look me up and we can go out to dinner,” he added.
Just as the pop singer was hitting it big in 2007, Rihanna chose to surprise lucky high schooler Richard on MTV’s reality series, Once Upon a Prom. The shy teen was completely “awestruck” when the star stepped out of the limo wearing a flowing blue dress.
“I want to let you know how terrified I am,” he said as they got in the limo, giving Rihanna a hug. The star spent the night dancing, mingling with Richard’s friends, and even taking the traditional awkward prom photo, which we imagine is probably still hanging in a place of honor in Richard’s house.
In 1996, Brandy was a rising star, which didn’t leave much time for regular high school activities, such as prom. So when the teen was asked by a then-unknown basketball player named Kobe Bryant, she was happy to oblige.
Bryant reportedly flew Brandy and her mom out to Philadelphia for the dance, giving the singer the royal treatment.
“I just felt like a normal 17-year-old,” Brandy told TMZ about her experience. “It was so much fun, although it was cameras and media there, it still felt normal to be in a school with kids my age … I really needed to experience that, and I wouldn’t if Kobe never asked me.”
