Bronzed, glowing skin has been the height of fashion for decades, but there could be early signs that tanning may have had its day in the sun.
Students at Maynard High School in Massachusetts made good on a “no tanning before prom” pledge at the event last Friday. In total, 209 of the 283 seniors signed the promise — organized by student Allison Bosse — to lay off the tanning booth.
“Our school is known for a lot of people tanning. Kids start in March because they want to be tan in their dresses for prom,” Bosse told ABC News.
The Maynard, Mass., school is not alone in creating such a pledge. It was the latest in a string of high schools whose students vowed not to tan before their prom.
The First Baptist Academy of Dallas had unanimous support for its prom pledge earlier this month, with students citing more pallid stars like Cate Blanchett, Nicole Kidman and Christina Hendricks as having the look they most admire.
