“I didn’t think I was going to be able to go, and then two days before I decided to go and I had to find a dress and get ready at the last minute, but it was really fun,” Fanning, who is also a cheerleader for her North Hollywood-based high school, told Leno. “The theme was ‘Enchanted Garden.’”

Leno, 60, then gave an anecdote about how proms, as he knows them, have changed, since he was in high school.  Leno said he had recently asked some teenagers, “Oh prom’s coming up, how do you decorate the gym?” only to get a blank response.
