Cinderella Project hosts local prom dress giveaway

Le 7 mars 2017, 07:19 dans Humeurs 0

The Cinderella Project of Monroe provides local junior and senior girls prom dresses, while building self-­‐esteem, self-­‐confidence and the importance of giving back to others. In its seventh year, The Cinderella Project of Monroe is hosting their annual dress giveaway this Saturday, March 11 at the Monroe Civic Center from 9 a.m. until noon. The giveaway is open to all high school juniors and seniors with a valid school ID or other form of enrollment. Each girl is assigned a personal shopper, a Cinderella Project volunteer, to help pick out a dress and try dresses on. The Cinderella Project collects dresses in the months leading up to the giveaway, sponsored by Raising Cane’s and Cross Keys Bank and partners with Herringstone’s Boutique, Eleven 26, K-­‐Sera, Rodeo Boutique and D&D Dry Cleaners as drop off points. The Cinderella Project was founded in Baton Rouge in 2008 and has since branched out to be statewide, with chapters in Lafayette, Shreveport, New Orleans and Monroe. It is a completely 100% volunteer organization and relies heavily on donations to pay for storage, racks for the dresses and other costs throughout the year.

El Dorado's Kansas Association for Youth Club, sponsored by Heather Fangmann, hosted a successful Butler County Dress Day at EHS. Girls were able to walk on a red carpet as they entered the hallway from the west entrance and check out a wide selection of prom dresses, as well as shoes, jewelry and other accessories for the big night.

Nearly 50 girls from El Dorado, Augusta, Remington, Burns, Douglass, Andover Central, Circle and Flinthills scoured through a large collection of dresses that have been collected through donations, yard sales and other means. Fangmann said she has been collecting them for a couple years now. A total of 29 dresses were claimed at the event.

These images show why the popular cosplayer has become the face of Japanese high school girls around the nation.

If we were to take a look back at some of Japan’s most popular cosplayers in 2016, 21 year-old Ayato Nikukyu would be at the top of the list, with her popularity exploding largely due to her appearance as the model for Bibi Lab’s Sera Kore line of schoolgirl uniform-style loungewear.

While she’s appeared in a number of different cosplay outfits, the one she’s most commonly photographed in is a Japanese sailor suit-style school uniform, with her youthful looks and short-bobbed, straight hairstyle making her a perfect fit for the look.

Most recently, she appeared in a campaign for factory business Ohmiya, and now she’s back to help promote another company, Doppelgänger, with their range of road bikes.

Seeing as Japanese students commonly commute to and from school in front basket-equipped “mama-chari” bicycles, this sporty-looking bike looks a little out-of-place at first, but Nikukyu is quick to show that schoolgirls can ride road bikes too.

In fact, she has a whole host of tips for potential owners of a Doppelgänger bike, which includes the importance of properly locking bicycles…

According to Doppelgänger, the recent appearance of road bikes as a form of transport in anime and manga is gradually working to increase its appeal across a wide demographic of young women and students. With Nikukyu in the rider’s seat, the popularity of the road bike looks set to increase even further.

Doppelgänger’s “Road Bike Schoolgirl” campaign includes an entire gallery of images featuring the pretty cosplayer, so be sure to stop by their website to check out more photos.

She's the belle of the ball!

She just celebrated her 30th birthday with a luxurious tropical holiday to Bali.

And on Monday night, Anna Heinrich swapped her bikini for a stunning gown by haute couture label Armani Privé as she stepped out for the Australian Fashion Film Awards in Melbourne.

The former reality star took to Instagram to share glimpses of her look for the night, which included the $30,000 dress.

The pricey gown was also embellished by Swarovski crystals along the bust and on one shoulder.

Anna oozed elegance in the dress, with her figure pouring perfectly into the slinky garment.

The girlfriend of former Bachelor star Tim Robards kept her hair and makeup simple as to not detract from the wow factor of the dress.

With lashings of mascara, flawless foundation and a pink lip, Anna's blonde locks were styled in a relaxed up-do.

Sharing a snap after returning home from the event, the Sydney-based beauty wrote: 'Quick bathroom selfie before I hit the sack. Thanks for having me tonight.'

She later posted another photo showing the full effect of the dress while tagging a designer rentals company, who appear to have worked with event organisers to supply dresses to attendees. 

It appears Anna's man Tim stayed home for the night while the blonde beauty attended the event.  

Anna's outing comes after they both travelled to Bali last week for Anna's milestone birthday.

Taking to Instagram on Saturday, the blonde beauty uploaded a photo of herself sitting among her friends, family and boyfriend Tim, moments before blowing out her birthday candles.
