A constellation of rising stars joined cast members of Walt Disney’s ‘Prom’ at the movie’s red-carpet premiere Thursday. The teen flick’s leading lady, Aimee Teegarden of ‘Friday Night Lights’ fame, sparkled in silver on the arm of costar Thomas McDonell at the screening in Hollywood.

‘Prom’ chronicles a group of high-schoolers on the cusp of adulthood as they prepare for the most important night in their lives.

Cast members Yin Chang (‘Gossip Girl’), Danielle Campbell, Jonathan Keltz and Jared Kusnitz dolled up for the El Capitan premiere, and the film’s director Joe Nussbaum and screenwriter Katie Wech beamed from the red carpet.

A slew of young celebs rocked dresses that could have twirled in movie proms of yore. ‘Modern Family’ actress Ariel Winter and Joey King, the pint-sized star of ‘Ramona and Beezus,’ were both pretty in pink. Chelsie Hightower (‘Entertainment Tonight,’ ‘Dancing With the Stars’) and Aimee-Lynn Chadwick wore black-and-white stripes. Click the pics to see more pictures.


Rebecca Black, the singer of the YouTube hit ‘Friday,’ defied death threats to strut her stuff for the cameras in a white, balloon-skirt dress. ‘Spy Kids’ star Daryl Sabara looked snappy in a gray suit. Kendall and Kylie Jenner (‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’) hammed it up for the cameras.

Olympic gold medalist Tara Lipinski made an appearance, as did Rachel Smith, Zachary Gordon, Nathan Kress, Jake T. Austin, Francia Raisa, Nolan Sotillo and Debby Ryan, to name a few.

The event was followed by an after-party at the aptly chosen Hollywood High School, where pop/rock band Allstar Weekend -- which rose to popularity after competing in ‘Disney’s Next Big Thing’ -- performed for the young stars.

‘Prom’ opens in theaters April 29.
