Check out photos of Maranda’s dress here, on wsbtv.com. I’m impressed by the looks of it — but can you imagine sitting down for dinner in it? Ouch! The story reminds me a bit of the duct tape prom dresses…would you rather wear a duct tape dress or a soda can tab dress? Haha, well I’d rather wear Jovani or Betsey Johnson, personally, but if I had to choose between the two — soda can tabs!
Did you go to prom yet? If you did, upload your prom pic to seventeen.com and see if you and your date win for Best Dressed!]]>
Blair wore a black silk tulle ball gown with gold feather appliques by Marquesa. This dress resembles the white dress that Audrey Hepburn wore in the movie Sabrina — we all know Blair is a big fan of hers. However, one of the best things about this dress is that Chuck got it for her. Don’t you wish guys in real life did that too?
After Dan rescues her at the police station, Serena shows up at prom wearing a sparkling pink Christian Dior halter gown. Her long loose curls add breezy vibes to her elegant outfit. Dan and Serena looked so good together that it made me jealous!
Whose prom dress was prettier? Serena or Blair? Cast your vote in the comments!

Last week, it seemed like Havanna might be in the lead. Kat loved the elegant black and gold gown she sketched and mocked up for her. But when Havanna places her dress order, something goes wrong! Will it set her behind Larissa and Laquasia?

I love that the girl had the guts to ask the guy to prom — and maybe it’s better he said “no” to prom…he doesn’t sound like the ideal date, with bad breath and weird Internet habits. Why would she ask him in the first place?
Who are you going to prom with? Is it the guy you initially thought would be your date? If not, remember, sometimes things happen for a reason! You’re probably better off.

Here are two fun kits BonneBell created especially for prom season, Dance Party (left) and Prom Queen (right), that retail for $3.95.
These quads are perfect for a girl like Larissa, a fashionista in our Ultimate Prom reality series, who likes really colorful eyelids — see for yourself in Episode 6!
But for most of us, natural palettes with brown/plum shades feel most comfortable. Here are two in my makeup bag, by BonneBell and Clinique (click images if interested in buying):
These kits are easy to apply — it’s all about mastering the blend. Here are some tips to get you started:
First step, apply a primer so the pigment doesn’t crease on your lids. I swear by Too Faced’s Shadow Insurance ($17 but it’s flawless!).
Next, remember that you want to start light and go darker. Apply the lightest shade in the palette, or a neutral shade you already have, across your lid first. Then, brush a deeper shade across the lid, up to the crease, for the main color. When brushing eyeshadow on, sweep from the corner of the eye outward. To highlight, brush a light shade across your brow bone. When you’re finished, you can use a blush brush to blend the colors together more naturally.
And don’t forget this secret of all makeup artists: A dot of white shadow or pencil on the inside of the eye, near the tear duct, makes eyes look brighter.
Do you have any eyeshadow tips and tricks?]]>
1. Oil blotting pads — so you’re not shiny in pictures
2. Lip gloss (buy tiny ones for $1 at eyeslipsface.com)
3. Compact of translucent powder (look for one with a mirror)
5. And of course, those things you can’t go anywhere without: cell phone, ID, cash, keys, and credit card]]>
