An all-grown-up Asia attended her senior prom over the weekend, showing up to the festivities wearing a gorgeous red strapless gown that comes from her mom’s private collection.

Rochon shared some family photos from the special occasion on Instagram, which immediately caught the attention of fans who recognized the dress. When Asia–whose father is famous director Antoine Fuqua--slipped into the stunning gown, she looked just like her mom did when she wore it back in the day.

“Yes, I saved the dress,” Rochon wrote in her caption. “Wasn’t sure why but now I know. #vintage”

The series of photos posted by Lela includes a side-by-side of herself wearing the dress back in the 90s alongside her teenager looking just as gorgeous in the strapless look in 2021. She also posted a selection of photos of her and her husband posing proudly alongside their daughter, looking like one big happy family.

Asia complimented the stunning red satin dress with soft waves and a smokey eye and red lip done up by makeup artist Adam Christopher using Crimson makeup and House Of Lashes.

Looking so stunning at senior prom is just one of the exciting things Asia has going for her this year, as the graduate is getting ready to attend the University of Southern California this fall. There, she will be a part of a freshman class full of famous faces, including Natalia Bryant and Storm Reid.


Back in 2019, Lele Rochon and Antoine Fuqua made headlines after photos surfaced of the famed Training Day director locking lips with Nicole Murphy while out in Italy, although Murphy released a statement claiming that the two were just “family friends.”

The ex-wife of comedian Eddie Murphy later admitted to being caught in the act on The Wendy Williams Show.

“Trust me, I wish it didn’t happen. It was a moment where I should’ve thought more through the situation. Make better judgments. It’s something I apologized for,” she explained.

Good to see the family has moved past that rough patch! Congrats to Asia!
