The red carpet event preceding the Scarsdale High School prom seems to get bigger every year. On Thursday night 5/31 a crowd of parents, teachers and friends turned out to see Scarsdale students in prom attire, before they boarded the bus for the much-anticipated party at Glen Island Harbour Club in New Rochelle.
Girls wore both short and long dresses – some respecting the tradition that senior girls wear long dresses while underclassman sport above-the-knee attire. The girls wore all the colors of the spectrum – from pastels to brilliant reds, pinks and blues with some in multicolored chiffon and others in dazzling sequins. Most had a corsage on their wrist. For hair, unlike previous seasons where updo’s were the rage, this year most girls had their hair down in soft waves and curls. Their dates were attired in the traditional tux with a carnation on their lapel.
It was a stunning spectacle as they walked the red carpet under sunny skies. As her daughter boarded the bus, one Mom said wistfully, “now the worrying begins.” It would be a long night for parents and students as the red carpet was a preview to a big night of partying. Following the prom, buses returned the students to the high school. From there, some went to homes to change, then took limousines into the city for the post prom party and did not return to Scarsdale until the wee hours of the morning.
