Funniest Prom Photo Contest sponsored by Underwood’s Fine Jewelers!

The fact that the girls AND the guys both have huge hair makes this prom photo an eighties’ classic. Aquanet, anyone?

You know that old prom photo you have tucked away somewhere? You know the one with the big hair or the dress with puffy shoulders that reach all the way up to your ears? Or maybe your prom date was wearing a one-of-a-kind tuxedo? Or maybe your Prom pose has “cheesy” written all over it? Yes, that’s the one. We want to see it!

Underwoood’s is as legendary as its Dickson Street home. It has become well-known for its unwavering commitment to sell only the finest quality diamonds. (The next time you’re on Dickson Street, take a peek into the Underwood’s store window. You’ll see what we mean.)

We’re collecting all those blast-from-the-past prom photos because, as you may have heard, we’re throwing a Mom Prom in Northwest Arkansas on May 4, 2013 at the Springdale Holiday Inn.

Even celebrities have old prom photos. Check out cute little Carrie Underwood on the left!

But here’s the best part: The winner of the Funniest Prom Photo Contest wins a pair of earrings from Underwood’s — but not just any earrings. These are sterling silver and gemstone earrings from the John Hardy Kali Silver Lava collection, and they’re handmade in Bali. They feature blue topaz and iolite gemstones pave set in a cushion design. This jewelry collection is inspired by the pebbles found in river streams, and these beautiful earrings are valued at $695.

(Yes, that really did just say SIX HUNDRED AND NINETY-FIVE DOLLARS! Here’s a photo of the grand prize. Gorgeous, huh?)
