Chad Michael Murray Wore His ‘Cinderella Story’ Costume To A Prom & RIP

The first thing you need to understand about this yarn is that 2004 romcom ‘A Cinderella Story‘ is iconic.

Sam Montgomery (Hillary Duff) and Austin Ames (Chad Michael Murray) falling in love while chatting via AOL as ‘PrincetonGirl818‘ and ‘Nomad609‘ and then finally realising that even though they are at opposite ends of the high school social hierarchy, they can break free of their shackles and be together? That is some early naughties prime cut ROMANCE for you right there.

Anyway, a certain Chad Michael Murray proved on the weekend that he’s not above a throwback, taking wife Sarah Roemer to an honest-to-god prom in his old Austin Ames get-up.

I waited for a prince and he took me to my 1st prom. ??@chadmurray15 #CHOC #prom #austinames

“I waited for a prince and he took me to my 1st prom,”
she captioned her Instagram pic, hashtagging #austinames just so there wasn’t any confusion.

The prom in question was the annual Children’s Hospital of Orange Country prom, which provides a prom for teens with cancer who might have otherwise had to skip their high school’s right of passage.

So yeah. CMM just broke out AA to bring a smile to teens with cancer like it was NBD.

Great time tonight celebrating the #CHOC Prom! Always awesome seeing @chadmurray15 ??????

“This is the greatest prom I’ve ever seen,”
he said in an Instagram video, turning the camera on the Alice in Wonderland-themed space. “We’re all mad here.”

And yes, that’s his original costume.

“Thanku @warnerbrosentertainment for letting me take the wardrobe out for a night,” he said. “Big win – IT STILL FITS!”

TBH, the only thing that would have made this better is if Roemer had chucked on a mask à la PrincetonGirl818.

All together now: AWWWWWWWWWW
