Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

A bit telling, no? "I was queen of my senior prom," Johnson said. "I probably only won because I was on the prom committee. I wore hoops and petticoats to make sure my princess gown stuck straight out—it had to be big, big, beyond bouffant big!"

Teen Vogue has an amazing slideshow of designers and fashion peeps—including Betsey Johnson, Chris Benz, Sophie Buhai and Lisa Mayock of Vena Cava, Karlie Kloss, Charlotte Ronson, and Geren Lockhart of Geren Ford—all in their prom best. We are obsessed.
