Remember that prom contest Nine West and their Ambassador of Culture and Noise, Kelly Cutrone orchestrated this spring!?
We finally know who Got Prom’d!
So who was crowned queen of Kelly Cutrone’s contest???
The lucky winner was Rachel DiCesare of Newburgh Free Academy, from the inner city of Orange County, New York.
To enter, Rachel had to give nine reasons why she and her friends deserved a makeover, and her #1 was dreaming of going to prom after overcoming a childhood obstacle.
The second, and quite possibly the most touching, was reason #2, which said:
“I’ve always wanted to look like a princess on my prom night and perhaps have the chance to shine.”
On June 6th, Cutrone surprised Rachel at her school, and she and 10 friends got the makeover she dreamed of.
Nine West’s in-house atelier team custom designed the gowns out of silk, satin, lace and any other rich fabric the girls’ dresses required. The brand also accessorized the girls, giving them jewelry, handbags and shoes.
Cutrone also reached out to Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa who created and donated personalized makeup palettes for each winner and hair and makeup specialists were on site to develop customized looks for each girl.
Kelly even gave them a quick etiquette lesson and a gift bag so they’d be all ready to go for their big night!
The girls looked fantastic! We’re so glad that some big names in fashion take the time to surprise girls like Rachel and give them the experience of a lifetime!!
Check out the pics (below) to see Rachel and her friends all prettied up and ready for prom!
Kelly Cutrone may tell you to go cry outside, but deep down inside she’s got a big heart!
The PR maven and America’s Next Top Model judge is teaming up with Nine West to give the girls of one high school a full makeover for prom.
All you gotta do is give Kelly nine reasons why you and your friends deserve a prom makeover. That’s it.
The contest ends on April 25th so what are you waiting for??? CLICK HERE to enter NOW!!!
Kelly Cutrone is known for her tough love attitude. She’s been around the block and then some. She knows what she’s talking about, and she’s not afraid to leave the sugar coating behind when advising young women.
So even though she’s a new judge for America’s Next Top Model, she’s not going to let that stop her from giving her honest opinion.
When she’s asked why ANTM winners don’t move on to more successful endeavors, she responds:
[Do] they try? Or were they just so burnt out on the industry by the time they had gone through a season on Top Model that they didn’t want to do it anymore. I mean a lot of times people follow the yellow brick road to find that it’s not full of fun and games and like the modeling world is not an easy world, so if you’re a girl who’s already gone through 12, 14, 16 weeks of that, and then have to wait another 4 months for the show to come out, I mean you might already be over it.
Sounds very possible to us!
And her unfiltered theories don’t stop there. When asked to discuss fashion shows, she explains her idea for wanted change in the industry:
If you really want to get me talking about fashion shows, why aren’t people paying to be on the media riser? Why are fashion designers content providers and what’s happening to that content? Who’s policing the content? You don’t think somebody who’s shooting on the end of a media riser is selling that content to a 7-up billboard in Ginza? The music industry has a publishing company. They found out that people were playing artists’ music on the radio and they said, ‘you have to pay the artist,’ but there’s nobody monitoring whats happening to all these fashion images that are created.
We’re always thrilled to hear what Kelly has to say, and we can’t wait to see more of her on America’s Next Top Model on The CW!
What do U think of her theories??
