TLC fans are likely familiar with the hit show, “Say Yes to the Dress”, a program in which brides-to-be work with professionals at the world-famous Kleinfeld Bridal in NYC to choose the perfect bridal gown and receive dazzling wedding day makeovers. In a wonderful twist of the plot, TLC presents a nationwide tour for the fourth year presenting a similar opportunity for high school girls, Say Yes to the Prom.
On March 19th, 2015, the event will be presented by TLC and JCPenney at The Cable Center in Denver, Colorado. The lucky teens from Abraham Lincoln High School will have the opportunity to choose their prom dresses from a selection of over 2,500 donated new or gently used gowns. The teens chosen for academic and behavioral excellence will enjoy the special experience while also gaining improved confidence, courage and self-image.
The event isn’t only about finding that
special prom dress. The girls will participate in mentoring workshops and receive beauty and styling consultations from top style experts. Their prom looks will be from head-to-toe including dress alterations for the perfect fit and jewelry and shoe shopping. Makeovers will also be offered which will presented at the closing of the event with a runway reveal, showing how each girl was able to be made over in their own way according to their special looks, features, personalities and styles. The hosting style experts who will give guidance and advice for beauty and styling as well as mentor the teens are Nick Stenson, the Artistic Director for jcp Salon, and Monte Durham, the star of “Say Yes to the Dress”.
