(Newser) – Lots of teenage girls go all out for their prom, but few get to wear a $25,000 Versace Couture dress designed for actress Christina Ricci. Ricci wore the sparkling, pale gray, floor-length dress to this year's Oscars ... and Kayla Staskiewicz also wore it to her May 13 Michigan high school prom. Staskiewicz's father entered her name in a local TV contest to win a chance to wear the size 0 dress.

After she won, there was just one question: Would it fit? She stepped into the dress the day before the prom, and it fit beautifully. With Joan Rivers unavailable for comment, Staskiewicz told a local newspaper she felt "really pretty." (In other prom news, adult versions are hot these days.)
