Photographer Emily Stein recreates all the awkwardness of formal night.

Warning: looking at British photographer Emily Stein’s series Black Tie may cause you to feel an intense rush of adolescent feelings. With her cast of gangly models dressed in stiff ‘80s garb, Emily captures the awkwardness and excitement that accompanies formal night. In fact, you can basically smell the hairspray and sweaty teenage perfume radiating off the page. To relive your formal days, see more photos from Emily here.
