Answers to Impress: Miss Universe 2010

Aug 27, 2010

miss universe 2010 dress promAs anyone in the pageant world knows, the question and answer period is important.  It’s a chance for the beauties to prove that they have brains, too.  (And that’s more important!)  Let’s recap what the top 5 in this year’s Miss Universe Pageant had to say.

Ultimate winner, Miss Mexico, Jimena Navarrete, was asked about her “views on what to do about the problem of children using the internet without proper supervision.”  She said that the internet is a necessary tool for children, and that “we must best use [the internet] to teach them the values that we learned as a family.”

An intelligent, poised answer pushed her through to the crown!

The biggest flub of the evening probably came from Miss Philippines, Venus Raj.  She was asked about her “biggest mistake in life, and what she did to fix it.”  She said, “In my 22 years of existence, I can say there is nothing major.”

That didn’t impress the judges.  Why?  Well, we think it’s because they were looking for a little bit of humility.  She didn’t really think on her feet.

So go ahead and learn from these answers.  Be ready for anything, and impress those judges!  Dress Prom wishes you the best of luck.

Back to School Trends

Aug 20, 2010

dress prom back to school trendsDress Prom is here when you need to look your best for a special occasion.  But if we know you (and we think we do), then we’re pretty sure that you want to look your best all the time.  So we’ve found some of the hottest back to school trends, and we’re going to share them with you.

  • Jeggings are a cross between jeans and leggings.  You can wear them with tunics or other long shirts.  They are super chic, super cute, and super versatile!
  • Building off of that… flowing wraps and cardigans are another big trend.  They look great with jeggings, so we suppose it makes sense.
  • Plaid is also really in style this season, so you want to make sure you have a cute plaid top.  Pair it up with a cute tank or cami, and you’re good to go.
  • Sweaters are going to be very popular this school season, as well.  Look for classic patterns with stripes and ribs.
  • And there’s always room for a funky accessory or two.  Get a neat charm bracelet or cute necklace.  These are also things that you can wear with your homecoming or prom dress when the time comes!
  • Ballet flats were in last year, and they’re back again.  A cute and comfortable way to dress up any outfit, you can wear them with a skirt or jeggings.

Best wishes for a safe and productive school year!

You’re Not Too Young to Worry About Wrinkles

Aug 5, 2010

Dress Prom get wrinkles out of your dressDon’t worry… we’re not talking about your face!  We’re talking about your prom, homecoming, and pageant dresses.  You might find yourself in a position where you need to wear one of those dresses again, only to find that it’s all wrinkly.  If you have two proms to go to, and you wear the same dress— it might have gotten wrinkled when you packed it up for an after party.  Or perhaps your closet it just so full of pageant dresses that it’s impossible to keep them all neat and wrinkle-free.  So what do you do?  Don’t worry, Dress Prom has a few tips for getting those wrinkles out.

  • Hang the dress up on a plastic hanger and hook it onto something in the bathroom.  The towel bar, the shower curtain rod, the towel bar… whatever you’ve got.  Just make sure the dress isn’t touching the ground.
  • Start the shower up using hot water.  (Make sure the curtain is closed if you’ve decided to hang the dress on the shower rod!)  Shut the bathroom door and run the shower for about five minutes.  Let it get steamy.  (If it’s too steamy for you, just leave the room and wait the five minutes outside.)
  • Shut the shower off, and let the dress hang in the steam-filled room for about a half hour.  The steam should loosen the wrinkles in the dress.
  • Check the dress out.  If you think it’s necessary, repeat the process.

This won’t remove any really deep or set-in wrinkles, but it will certainly give new life to something that’s just a little bit crumpled!
