Pretty in Pink for Prom 2011

January 24, 2011

 

Are you getting ready for prom? We are! Check out our latest arrivals from our new favorite designer  Sherri Hill.

She’s really having a fabulous season. We’ve decided to go super girly this prom season. We’ve chosen fun, short prom dresses with a little sparkle. All three dresses above are adorned with a little sequins, beads or crystals to make them more festive.

Now that we’ve helped you to select the perfect pink dress…what are you going to do about your hair and make up?

Hayden, Taylor and Miley have all chosen classic  hairstyles to complete their evening look.

The common trend for make up this year focuses on strong eyes and neutral color for  lips. Your prom makeup bag should include a great mascara, eyeliner and neutral lipstick.

 

 

If you are feeling more adventurous, then you should consider using your hair color as the ultimate accessory. Oh and forget about neutral lips, wear your best Barbie pink lipstick. Find your inner rock star and rock out with a bold look like Lily Allen or Nicki Minaj.
