For many, sharing photos from their old school ball with the nation would probably be a traumatic affair.

But not so for these TVNZ faces.

In the wake of the news an Auckland Catholic girls' college is banning students from wearing dresses with plunging necklines, low backs and leg splits above the knee to their school ball, several faces from TV One's Seven Sharp decided to share their own ball get-up from years gone by on the show's Facebook page

Co-host Toni Street shared two of her school ball dresses.

We particularly liked the bold choice of purple satin one year. And the decision to pose next to a candelabra the other year.

Meanwhile, reporter Hadyn Jones proudly rocked a matching bow tie and cummerbund.

But Breakfast couldn't let their Seven Sharp colleagues have all the fun.

Two of their presenters also shared their old school ball photos with viewers this morning to see if their dresses would have made the cut under the controversial dress code.

Nadine Chalmers-Ross shared three school ball photos, with her co-host Rawdon Christie deeming them unsuitable due to "too much cleavage".

But our favourite of them all has to be the photo shared by Breakfast newsreader Melissa Stokes (and not just for the no-expense-spared pixelation of the other two girls in the photo).

Never mind the dress code violations – there are some serious hair crimes going on there!
