Ah, the prom. It’s meant to be one of the best nights of our lives. We finally finish four years of high school and it’s time to celebrate after all the homework, gym classes, and friends drama. It’s a night of pure magic where everyone dresses to the nines and dances the night away to our favorite songs. It’s not just the event itself, oh no. There’s so much extra stuff to worry about: what you’re going to wear, where you’ll take pro-prom photos, where the after party is. There’s a lot that goes into planning the best night of your life.
It goes without mentioning that prom is no cheap deal. First of all, you need to choose a dress and tuxedo and that certainly ain’t inexpensive. Many students also like to arrive to the event in style and a limo runs a high bill as well. If you want to travel to the after party, as many like to do, you can also expect to fork over some serious Benjamins. When you’re a celebrity, you probably don’t have to worry about that bill. Many of these famous children arrived at their prom in perfect attire, in a lavish car, with their proud celebrity parents not too far behind.
Snoop Dogg’s daughter
We could only imagine what it would be like to have Snoop Dogg as your father. We aren’t sure if he would be a lenient father considering his fun-loving ways and appetite for adventure, or perhaps he would be quite strict because you know he has seen it all. In 2017 he took to Instagram to wish his gorgeous daughter Cori a great time on what she hoped would be the best night of her life. She crushed it in her glitzy dress that reached the floor. Here she is with her date, full smile, ready to take the dance hall by storm. We’re sure she had an amazing time.
NeNe Leakes’s son
NeNe Leakes became a shining star thanks to her amazing appearance on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Fans loved her quick wit and irreverence. It was enough for her to make the switch to acting and she starred in the Ryan Murphy-created sitcom, The New Normal. When she’s not on camera she’s focused on being the best mother she could be to her son Brentt. She got to send him off in this mauve tux to the prom in style. She didn’t just stop at the amazing suit. Oh no – she needed him to roll up to the prom looking fresh so she bought him a brand new Rolls Royce. OK – we’re officially jealous.
Kimora Lee Simmons’s daughter
When you have a stunning model for a mother, we’re sure you pick up some tricks of the trade. It’s safe to assume that supermodel Kimora Lee Simmons’s daughter Ming Lee did just that. Here she is looking stunning with an expert pose next to her date. He’s clearly not ready for her. She looks incredible in her floor-length, golden gown. We certainly don’t think it’s the best outfit for dancing but who cares when you look this good.
Vanessa Williams and Rick Fox’s daughter
Who doesn’t love themselves some Vanessa Williams? The powerhouse vocalist is not only incredibly talented on the screen (Ugly Betty, Desperate Housewives, Shaft), but she is also stunning. She didn’t win Miss America for nothing after all. Clearly the genes passed down to her daughter Sasha. Here she is in a beautiful and classic red dress on her way to the prom. We’re sure she made mama proud that day. Perhaps she took some pointers from her beauty pageant winning mother.
Eddie Murphy’s daughter
Eddie Murphy spent decades of his career at the top of every Hollywood producer’s list. Everyone wanted to work with him and everything he touched turn to gold. That extends to his own flesh and blood as we can see with his gorgeous daughter Zola. Here is she snapping pics before her prom with her date. Her dress is elegant and classy. It’s definitely the sort of dress you can wear after prom at a number of black tie affairs.
Niecy Nash’s daughter
Who doesn’t love themselves some Niecy Nash? You know the reliably hilarious actress from her hit series Reno 911, Getting On, and her most recent series, Claws. She also produces great work off the set. Here is her daughter Dia before going in to enjoy the best night of her life. She’s rocking her yellow gown and serving face that is eerily similar to her famous mama. She certainly is the belle of the ball in this Beauty and the Beast-inspired getup.
Lil Wayne and Toya Wright’s daughter
When your parent is so famous, it must be difficult to break out of their shadow. That’s just what rapper Lil Wayne’s daughter, Reginae, did. While her father was out smashing hip hop records, she had a reality show with her mother, Toya Wright. She’s also set to debut some new music coming out soon. Is there anything this young ingenue can’t do? Here she is looking fabulous with her mom at her prom. She looks amazing in this Burlesque inspired dress.
Karen Gravano’s daughter
Do you remember Mob Wives? The wild reality show featured a slew of wives and ex-wives of the mob. The show came well equipped with catfights and dinner parties. One of the stars of the show is Karen Gravano. Her daughter Karina was also featured on the series when she was just a kid. Here she is years later, all grown up and ready to take her prom night by storm. She looks radiant in this stunning gown.
Will Smith’s son
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith’s son Jaden has already graduated from high school. It seems like yesterday he was starring with his father in the hit drama The Pursuit of Happyness. He’s a man now and is ready to rock his prom with his stunning girlfriend, actress Odessa Adlon. The two look chic and ready for Instagram as they pose with full attitude outside the big event. We’re sure these two tore up the dance floor in style.
LL Cool J’s daughter
Rapper turned actor LL Cool J has certainly earned his middle name over the years. He has broken hit records, sold out performances, and starred in huge money-making franchises.

Here is dad doing his thing as he helps put the finishing touches to her gorgeous outfit.
Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas’s son
Part of the prom hype is where to take pictures before the big event. The fanciest of pre-prom events feature a professional photographer, a cocktail hour, and some pretty stellar poses. Superstars Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas chose to host the lavish event and son Dylan was the star of the night. Here he is mid-pose running his fingers through his hair as he rocks this classic tux. The Douglas family hosted his classmates in clear Hollywood style.
Mike Epps’s daughter
Who doesn’t love a canary dress? This show-stopping number is sure to put the spotlight on Mike Epps’ daughter Makayla. Mike Epps is of course the hilarious stand up comedian and actor who has appeared in The Hangover, the thrilling Resident Evil films, and last year’s breakout comedy Girls Trip. We’re sure he brought his trademark sense of humor to his daughter’s pre-Prom event. We just hope he didn’t make any Dad jokes and embarrass her in front of her friends. Ugh, Dad!
Mel B’s son
Scary Spice is no stranger to high fashion. Aside from her incredible vocals and songwriting skills as part of the iconic girl group Spice Girls, she is known for her staple leopard prints and wild hairdos. We’re sure it was her fashion sense and magic touch that made her daughter Phoenix Chi look so darn chic in this elegant lace and checkered gown. Here she is posing with her date right before leaving for the event in an orange Bugatti.
Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos’ daughter
The bubbly actress, dancer, host and producer has always been able to draw attention with her energetic personality and petite looks. Lately, she has been slightly overshadowed by the only person who can actually do it: her daughter Lola. Ripa has recently shared Lola’s prom photos on social media and the world couldn’t stop talking about this gorgeous young lady ever since. Worth mentioning Lola’s proud dad is the steamy actor Mark Consuelos. Seriously, nothing can go wrong with this glorious combo of genes.
Kim Zolciak’s daughter (Brielle)
Kim Zolciak is “the” real housewife who is also moonlighting as a pop star. Zolciak loves attention and sparkling things. She has three gorgeous daughters, one of them is just four years old, but we’re sure she’s already a superstar. Brielle is Zolciak’s oldest daughter who has most def. inherited her mom’s looks and style. At her prom, the sassy blonde wore a wedding inspired dress which left big impression on her classmates and probably her prom date. Just look at his smile, he’s either very happy or just terrified.
Kim Zolciak’s daughter (Ariana)
Reality star and pop star Kim Zolciak knows how to work an event. As a key player on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, she knows all about what makeup, outfit, and pose works best in front of the lens. She passed that knowledge down to her daughter Ariana. Together with her boyfriend Collin, they matched their color scheme. She is wearing a gorgeous red dress while Collin complements her with a red bowtie. You know what they say: the couple that coordinates together, stays together.
Mekhi Phifer’s son
Mekhi Phifer is famous for playing the tough guy in a number of his hit projects, from 8 Mile to O and of course, his smash medical series ER.

His famous dad took to social media to show off his sleek son and share how proud of him he is.
Cynthia Bailey’s daughter

She took to her popular Instagram account to celebrate her special night. She couldn’t wait.
Shanna Moakler’s daughter
Who could forget reality star and model Shanna Moakler’s tumultuous relationship with ex-hubby Travis Barker in the mid-’00s? The on-again, off-again couple were fixtures in the trashy mags after their very public split that led to an altercation with Paris Hilton and a divorce party. Seriously – that era was crazy. They’ve since made amends and Shanna is as attentive a mother as ever. Here is her daughter Atiana before entering her prom. She looks stellar in this black getup.
Leslie Mann and Judd Apatow’s daughter
Maude Apatow has risen from the shadows of her famous parents to cement a respectable acting career in her own right.

Kate Beckinsale and Michael Sheen’s daughter
Who could anyone forget the hilarious moment when parents Kate Beckinsale and Michael Sheen posted a gleeful picture celebrating their daughter’s acceptance to college? See – even celebrity parents can be embarrassing too. Before heading off to college, however, Lily needs to first graduate high school. No high school experience is complete without their prom night. Lily looks great in her old Hollywood-inspired red dress. We’re sure she had a great night and Mom and Dad were there to celebrate.
Michael Jackson’s daughter
Michael Jackson’s daughter Paris lit up the night at her prom. In honor of her best friend’s blue gown, she died her hair the same color to match her. Is there any truer friend?

It’s certainly a sleek and eclectic outfit.

We’re sure the two had a great time tearing up the dance floor and munching on shrimp cocktail.
Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe’s daughter
Despite the blurry prom photo, we can certainly see the resemblance between Ava and her famous parents. Those parents are – of course – the one and only Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe.

Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke’s daughter
For her decades long career, Uma Thurman (Kill Bill, Pulp Fiction, The Producers) has been regarded for her grace and old Hollywood-esque beauty. She and ex-husband Ethan Hawke celebrated daughter Maya at her prom. She took some professional shots for her portfolio and she looks just as fashionable and stylish as her famous mother. She looks incredible in this buttoned up dress. We’re not sure if she’s heading to the prom or for the cover of a fashion magazine.
Cindy Crawford’s daughter
Cindy Crawford has been a fashion icon for a generation. Who could imagine anyone else pulling off that amazing Pepsi ad better than her? She was the original Beyonce and Britney Spears… OK – we digress. Her daughter picked up some pointers from her famous mom and she celebrates her prom night with her date. The strapless dress looks ready for a big award show and we could only imagine the heads that turned when she made it to the big event.

You know Teresa Giudice from her extravagant lifestyle as displayed in The Real Housewives of New Jersey. She was sentenced to 11 months in prison back in late 2015 for fraud. We’re sure she’s glad to be out so she can be there with her daughter on this exciting night. Unfortunately her father is still serving his 41-month sentence.
Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin’s daughter
Another Hamlin attended her prom in style: Amelia. She rocked this gorgeous black dress with her equally stylish date for her prom. She and sister Delilah are just one year apart and we’re sure Amelia was eager to step into her own spotlight. Any person out there with an older sibling can relate to that feeling. Amelia is an aspiring actress living in Hollywood. We’re sure her modeling family is very supportive of the young Hamlin’s dreams.
Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis’s daughter
Another star breaking out of her famous parent’s shadow is actress Lily-Rose Depp. At just 19 years old, Lily-Rose she’s already starred in seven films including one with Natalie Portman.

His daughter Harley Quinn got bit with the acting bug as well and has appeared in a number of her father’s films including Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Jersey Girl, and Tusk. She chose a look for her prom that is more minimal than the typical prom look. She looks radiant in a slick black dress and simple pearl necklace.
Jay Feely’s daughter
NFL player Jay Feely received backlash for this picture of him in between his daughter Alexandra and her prom date. What you don’t see is Jay holding a firearm. He eventually apologized after his Twitter mentions went a bit nuts. His daughter looks elegant in her skin-tone dress, minimal jewelry, and up do. Like any gentleman, her date matched her dress with a similar color tie. We’re sure that overprotective dad Jay appreciated the extra touch.
Christi Zook Lukasiak’s daughter
Who could forget the iconic reality series Dance Moms. The wild show made a star out of Sia’s dancer Maddie Ziegler and featured serious drama with host Abby Lee Miller. Christi Lukasiak was one of the moms who frequently clashed with Miller. She never felt her daughter Chloe got the attention she deserved. Now Chloe has graduated high school and attended her prom in style. Her bright colored dress will surely mean that she is a stand out at the big night.
If you’re a big fan of rapper Eminem just like we are, you’d know his daughter Hailie Mathers from all of his shout outs in many of his hit songs. She prefers to stay out of the limelight, however, and is leading a more low key life as she attends Michigan State University.
