Seventeen magazine and Camille La Vie had the best time hosting Prom-azing: 2012 Prom Queen Search in Houston last weekend! We featured the hottest looks for Prom on our gorgeous real girl models, had lots of giveaways, got dolled up with free express services from Sephora, danced to Kracker Nuttz from Houston’s Hot 95.7, chatted with our beautiful hosts, Hot 95.7′s Kelly Kelly and Seventeen’s own Amy Liang, and shopped the afternoon away at Camille La Vie.

Queen fashionista and E! News Daily Contributor, Katlean de Monchy, and PR/Social Media guru Janine Just collaborated with Camille La Vie, Voli Vodka, Mori Lee and many more in debuting BLOGGERINI – the first ever fashion blogger event at Lair Lounge NYC. With the event launched directly after the 2012 Oscars, it was inevitable what our keen fashion eyes would be piercing on – the iconic celebrity gowns and how to score a chic and uncanny version for a lot less with our Oscar dress interpretations. We were delighted to showcase our spot on celebrity style looks, which included pieces inspired by Viola Davis, Rooney Mara and Jessica Chastain. Plus, we just had to premiere many of our other shimmering dresses, ranging from on trend mermaid-style, high to low and sequin one shoulder beauties. We also made sure to include the luxurious red-carpet favorite, Jovani, as part of our style conscious roster. As top bloggers, stylists and fabulous fashion editors perused our racks, we were in heaven discussing all things fashion while sipping on delicious Voli Vodka “Bloggerini” cocktails.
Familiar faces in the digital fashion realm included celebrity stylists, Cesar Gaviria and Melissa Meyers, founding editor of Orange Juice and Biscuits, Jonathan Valdez, philanthropists Jean Shaffiroff and Jane Pontarelli, editor-in-chief of 24Blogazine, Vanessa Flowers and many, many more style heavy-hitters. While sampling dresses by Camille La Vie and Mori Lee, guests also had first dibs in sampling the pristine jewelry samples from Katlean’s latest de Monchy Collection. And among her many fabulous accomplishments, Katlean stands as no stranger to the small screen. Some of her regular appearances not only include contributing on E! News Daily, but also on NBC’s Today Show, CNN and Inside Edition.
Towards the end of the evening, guests were certainly not to be left empty-handed. Each were given the most fabulous of goodie bags, which included Camille La Vie accessories, Voli Vodka beauty, fashion books and so much more!
Although the classic chignon remains a timeless hairstyle favorite when attending posh social events like Prom or a special gala, it’s always fun to kick the updo a few notches and show off your gleaming locks in modern and creative ways. From loose and romantic side buns, bohemian styled french twists, Elzabethan braids, like Nicole Richie’s (shown top row, second from left), to a refreshing new take on the french twist, the options are seemingly endless. And if your dream prom look entails either a strapless dress, one shoulder dress, a sexy high to low dress, or perhaps something with an enticing sweetheart neckline, a unique updo will not only showcase your beautiful shoulders and décolletage but also highlight your overall prom style and make you the center of that sparkling dancefloor!
And to capture that sleek look with major hold, we recommend Bumble & Bumble Classic Hairspray to keep your do strictly in place during major party hours. To silkify and rid those pesky fly aways, TIGI Bed Head After the Party Smoothing Cream works its fabulous wonders. Another must-have straightening product with a healthy dose of sweet-smelling hibiscus is Frederic Fekkai’s Advanced Silky Straight IRONLESS shampoo…and the plus to buying this baby – it contains essential proteins to heighten your hair’s vitality. If you’re going for a loose and wavy updo with a summery beach effect, Bumble and Bumble’s Surf Spray will not disappoint (we have bottles stashed in our own offices in case we need a boost of beach wave). And with spring in full gear, the warmer climate may put a little damper on our hair and create those unwanted frizz and damaged strands. To fight nature’s elements, we suggest scooping up a heavenly bottle of Moroccan Oil. It’s not only smooths and provides the necessary nutrients for your hair, but also aids in hair regeneration too!
