Prom Dress Window Shopping

All around America girls are getting excited from prom, and over here in the UK I am no exception. Okay so I've already had my REAL prom, but I have my college's leavers ball in June and thats enough an excuse as any to shop for 'prom' dresses.

The leaver's ball is more casual than a traditional prom, but this year its being held at a fancy hotel so I want to be looking my best! I want a dress thats not too over the top, but a little bit different to a regular 'going out' dress. I want to leave a lasting impression on my fellow peers before we all go our separate ways.
I love the unusual patten in the sequins of this dresses bodice and I'm really taken by the flared out skirt also. I haven't seen anything quite like this dress before. My only worry is if it will rub my under arms.
I love how the feminine skirt contrasts greatly with the fierce leather bodice. I'm really taken by the water colour design of the skirt as well, as a watercolourist, this is right up my street. If only the price tag wasn't so large! 
This screens 20's at me and I LOVE the 20s era. I would love dancing in this dress with the ombre tassles swishing all around me! Am I brave enough to go strapless, though?
This is probably the most casual of my selections, but I was really intrigued by the cage neckline. I also like the bright turquoise shade, I'm just wondering if its too bright for a nighttime ball?
Pleats? Check. Grecian goddess style? Check. I'm already fantasizing about gold arm cuffs and gold braids in my hair *dreams.* Is it show stopping enough though?

Which is your favourite dress? Are you having a prom this year?
