JOVANI makes girls' prom dreams come true!

It's no surprise that a great number of Americans have been majorly hit by the recent economic crises, leaving many girls with the inability to afford prom--let alone purchase a dress. Jovani feels that every girl should feel and look like a princess, even for just one night. Jovani has chosen to donate 25+ dresses to the Operation Fairy Dust organization, which seeks to turn girls' prom dreams into a reality.

"PROJECT PROM! Every year, thousands of teenage girls are denied the opportunity to attend their senior prom simply because they cannot afford the basic necessities associated with the occasion such as a dress, make-up, jewelry, shoes, etc. Families should not have to sacrifice paying their household bills and neglect other financial responsibilities in order to provide their children with a memorable high school experience."

Jovani makes its debut on ABC's One Life to Live. Don't miss it!
Costume Designer and Emmy Award winner Susan Gammie says Jovani was first choice. “It was important to me that all the dresses reflect a fun and sexy sense of style - a sensibility I associate with Jovani."


One Life to Live's newest troublemaker Kimberly Andrews (played by Amanda Setton) says "I-DO" in Jovani style #14791 during a wedding episode taping set to air Mar. 11. A far cry from her Gossip Girl character Penelope, the quintessential cliquey upper east-sider, Setton plays the resident bad girl and ex-Vegas stripper on the daytime soap. Pictured below, bride Kimberly wears a slinky and sexy jersey gown with a plunging jeweled neckline. Bridesmaids and former stripper pals also dressed up for the occasion in Jovani! Both girls wore short cocktail dresses with vibrant prints and sparkly details.

Celebrity Stylist Update...It's Bananas

Page Six reveals true cause for the split between celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe and her disgruntled assistant Taylor Jacobson…

Courtesy of nydailynews.com

It came as a shocking surprise to all fashion fans of the Bravo series The Rachel Zoe Project, when it was reported in early November 2009 that temperamental stylist assistant Taylor Jacobson will not be returning for the following season. The big split between Rachel and her assistant of four years was speculated to be far from amicable, while Jacobson’s rep announced it as a smart career choice for Taylor to pursue her own interests and to not have to deal with the bungling Brad Goreski.

Speculations were rest assured as “Page Six” reported yesterday that Jacobson was fired from Rachel Zoe Inc., after a dispute over designer clothes missing from the closet. Can you just die?! After suggesting that the missing clothes were either lost or “permanently borrowed,” Zoe handed Jacobson the pink slip.

As seen on the reality television show, Zoe and her team of assistant stylists tirelessly work to style Hollywood A-lists for public appearances and casual outings. It will be sad to see Taylor out of the equation next season, as her perturbed mannerisms and bullying ways will truly be missed--hopefully Brad will step up to the plate!
