Dawson’s Creek: The Anti-Prom, circa 2000
Remember when Katie Holmes wasn’t Mrs. Tom Cruise and Michelle Williams wasn’t every girl’s fashion crush? Back during the turn of the century, they were just teens in the faux town of Capeside, MA dealing with the usual drama and transitional sartorial tastes. Being the progressive-thinking (and hyper-articulate) group of kids that they are, the Capeside-gang plans an Anti-Prom to protest the homophobic reaction to Jack’s intended date to the Capeside High prom.
Pacey brings emotionally unstable Andie who looks pretty and fashionably inoffensive in a bridesmaid dress-esque shiny lavender confection (late 90s customary pashmina, check!), a baby-faced Joey looks almost red carpet-ready in her minimalist black and (by the way, these pics were located deep within the Interwebs) Jen was presciently channeling a young Marilyn Monroe in a 50s sleeveless dress and curled blonde bob.
