Cinderella's Gowns (, a nationally recognized source for prom dresses and formal evening gowns, has made several 2009 prom fashion predictions.

With prom a few months away, premiere designers are releasing their newest and sexiest prom dresses ever. Look for examples of 2009 prom dress fashions to soon hit magazine shelves and on websites such as

What's New for 2009:
One of the biggest trends for 2009 is prints and vivacious colors--think 1980s. Everything from floral to animal prints to abstracts is popular this year. Prom dresses for 2009 are going to be sexy and fun--to be a trendsetter, go for eye-catching, bright dresses instead of traditional dresses and subtle colors.

Metallic Fabric is Back, and Better:
Forget the crunchy metallic fabrics of the past. Metallic is back, and better than ever before. The metallic is from a new form of lame' (pronounced "lah-MAY") that is applied to fabric like stretch jersey and charmeuse (a lightweight fabric woven with a satin weave), as opposed to the crunchy lame' of the 1980s. Many 2009 designer collections include metallic dresses that are flirty, fun, and comfortable.

Goodbye Sequins, Hello Beads:
Beads are also in this year. 2008 was all about sequins, and 2009 will be about beads and details. Some 2009 prom dresses will have beaded designs covering the entire prom dress. Others will have beaded details at the empire seam, which makes the trend even sexier.

Distinct 2009 Style - The Empire:
The Empire, the cut that fits tight under the bust and then floats away from the body, is expected to be very popular this year. Celebrities such as Jessica Alba, Cate Blanchett, and Nicole Kidman wore empire dresses on the red carpet at the 2008 Academy Awards, and empire dresses are certain to be seen at prom this year.

"We (Cinderella's Gowns) are excited about the new trends for 2009 prom dress fashions," explains Tammy Ussery-Bakhtiari, owner of Cinderella's Gowns. "From fabrics to colors to style, 2009 is going to be a memorable year for prom dress fashion. We look forward to seeing great examples from new designers and new dress styles."
