Your daughter has been waiting to be asked to prom since she could walk and talk. Okay, perhaps thatís an exaggeration, but as soon as she learned that there was a magical dance where boys asked girls and you got to buy the dress of your dreams, she couldnít stop talking about it.

Prom is to young girls what a wedding is to young women. Itís the day where she feels like a princess, where all the eyes are on her. Picking out the perfect prom dress is quite a tall order, especially for the mom or dad tasked with helping their daughter find it.

Thereís lots to consider. No girl wants to be seen in the same dress as another girl at the dance. You donít want your daughter to look inappropriate, nor do you want her to look overly frumpy. If your daughter is a fashionista, youíve got even more on your plate! Sheís sure to insist on finding the trendiest dress out there Ė one that will set her apart from the rest, proving that sheís got her finger on the fashion pulse. Here are some great prom dress options that will please even the pickiest of trendsetters.

For the girl that wants to go long and glamorous, look no further than a beaded jersey dress with an X back. This dress could easily be worn by teen style stars Selena Gomez and Miley Cyrus, and would look great on a red carpet at a movie premiere. At once sultry and demure, this beautiful gown will drape your daughterís curves in a way that is age appropriate, but still makes her feel like the princess she is.

The sleeveless bodice is sexy and supportive, and the beaded detail around the waist and on the halter straps provides a glamorous contrast to the sleek royal blue jersey fabric. The X back adds allure and ensures that she looks like a modern day Grecian goddess. The dress comes in Iris, is fully lined and has a back zipper.

If your fashionista daughter wants to upstage all the other girls by going classic and sleek, look no further than a beaded one shoulder jersey dress. This beautiful gown is guaranteed to make anyone look a million bucks, thanks to its sweeping cut and perfectly placed draping. With a gorgeous beaded strap on one side that drapes across the back, this dress makes a seriously dramatic effect when you see it from the back. From the front, however, itís a statuesque gown worthy of an award, sophisticated and celebrity-approved. With its chic and slim silhouette, this beautiful jersey gown comes in bold blues and purples that are sure to make a statement.

Got a girl who just loves the looks of the eighties? Maybe you canít afford that Betsey Johnson dress sheís been oohing and aahing over for weeks, but you might consider getting her a short and sassy taffeta dress with a smaller price tag but just as much style.

A short taffeta dress in hot pink that comes with a sequined hanky hem is fashionista-approved and totally trendy. Very few girls have the guts to rock this dress, which looks like something Carrie Bradshaw would have worn to her prom. The strapless bodice shows off the shoulders, while the sequined hanky hem is fun, flirty and fashion-forward yet totally age appropriate. The dress has a tulle underlay, which adds some extra volume to the skirt, and the dress is fully lined with an invisible back zipper.

For a colorful number that looks better suited to an A-list movie premiere than a high school prom, look no further than the one shoulder stretch satin multi print gown from the Jessica Simpson prom collection. If your daughter is a fashionista, she will love this gown. Sleek and stunning, this one shoulder gown is guaranteed to make heads turn when she enters the room Ė a true Cinderella moment for the modern prom queen!
