This week I styled a Prom Fashion Show for Macy’s. I figured I’d share 6 must see prom trends and dresses that I styled for the fashion show.
I, April Golightly am wearing an JR Nites Embellished Illusion Mesh Cutout Gown. The Cutout slashes with mesh paneling reveal just enough on JR Nites’ sizzling gown, while sparkling jewels highlight all the right places. Amp up the glamour with a cat eye and a peachy pout! MAC added some lashes as well.
