Jordan is back for Fashion Fab Friday! Set the trend and jump into these cute and fun rompers for your after prom party.
Want to flaunt great legs or your toned stomach that you slaved in the gym over; but worried about being too revealing? In one of this year’s hottest prom ensemble trends, you can have the best of both worlds! Sheer gowns and cocktail dresses are the perfect combination of sexiness and mystique. Sheer prom ensembles have made their way into the collections of today’s most in demand designers. Sherri Hill’s designs have graced the runways of New York Fashion Week displaying variations of the sheer trend in sleeves, necklines and achieved a “faded” look; starting with full coverage and embellishments on the bodice and sheer gown bottom!
Jovani is another designer that has practically made sheer gowns a staple of their 2013 prom collections. Facebook fans of the brand continuously witness beautiful gowns that incorporate this element in the daily photographs on Jovani’s page.
Just a quick tip, keep in mind that sheer dresses are meant to accentuate what you feel are your best assets. If you decide to incorporate this translucent style into your prom night be sure to keep it classy. It is important to remember sheer fabric is strategically placed to tastefully display areas such as the stomach, legs, and back but are still meant cover what’s necessary. As long as you rock this trend in good taste and step into your prom night with confidence, there is no doubt that your night will be Sheer Perfection.

- Have you already attended the Prom?
Yes I have.
- What is your favorite Prom memory?
My favorite memory of Prom would have to be how fun my date made it. He stood on the dance floor with me all night, and made sure I had nothing less than a great time. Prom will always be a night I will cherish and remember for a lifetime.
- Did you attend an After-Prom Party?
I did attend After-Prom! Myself, and a small group decided to spend it on a boat. We had food and music played the whole night. We all continued the party, but also had the chance to relax and enjoy the view of the city.
- What made you try out for this Pageant?
Well ever since i could remember I’ve always had a passion for modeling. I wanted to challenge myself and try something outside of the usual studio work, so i joined and the experiences I’ve had made it all worth it!
- Do you have a favorite memory from the Pageant?
I do! The first two pageants I joined, I didn’t get the crown, but I was determined to win! By the third pageant I was prepared and i finally won the title. The feeling of finally accomplishing one of your dreams is one of the most amazing feelings in the world. When they called my name as the winner, and I walked the runway for the last time, the first thing that went through my mind was “I did it!.” I can now proudly say I am Miss Teen New York East Coast USA!
- What advice would you give girls your age on “following their dreams”?
My biggest piece of advice I would give to the girls my age is to never give up on them!! If you have a dream, pursue it! No matter how hard or long it may take to get there, believe in yourself and never let anyone tell you, you can’t.
- What are some of your go-to beauty products that would be a good recommendation for Prom Night?
Some go-to beauty products I would recommend would be to carry eyeshadow and lip gloss for touch ups, as well as flat shoes. Between prom and after prom, your feet will get tired from wearing heels all night, so matching flats is a must!

• Did you attend the Prom?
Yes, I did, 12th grade DeWitt Clinton High School. It was really cool! It’s funny I was DJing at the time, not at my school. No one really knew I was DJing but I did different parties and was gaining my popularity. I went to prom with the “IT’” girl in school. Everyone wanted to go to prom with this girl. My social studies teacher hooked it up. He knew I had a crush on her so he made us partners in a project so I had her number. When it came time to ask her to prom, I used to call her a bunch of times and hang up. So one Friday, a month before the prom, I called her and she picked up and asked if I wanted to go over the project. I asked her if she was going to the prom she said she guess but no one really asked her yet. So I asked if she wanted to go? She asked, “With you?” I was like man, guess that’s a no, but she said of course. I was stunned. About ten minutes later, my good friend, our mutual friend called all excited, “you finally did it!” It was a big deal. She won prom queen that night I wasn’t on the ballot for king so I didn’t win. But it didn’t matter who the king was, I was the most popular dude. We had a good night. After prom we went to an after party, then to breakfast then straight to Great adventures.
• What are you working on these days?
Now I DJ Friday nights from 12 am to 2 am on Power 105.1. I DJ up to 3-4 clubs a night. In the past I have traveled all over the world and I plan on traveling again very soon.
• What is your favorite part about being a 105.1 DJ?
My favorite part about being a 105.1 DJ is being responsible for breaking records. I love playing new records. I’m known as the ladies DJ because I play a lot of girl friendly music. Another one of my favorite parts about Djing is having friends from 10-15 years ago call me because they hear a DJ Will on the radio and says it sounds like me. It’s a great feeling to reunite.
• What would your advice be for the Class of 2012?
Be safe! Be sure to continue onto college. Even people with college degrees can’t find jobs but a High school diploma and a GED won’t bring you anywhere in life.
• Tell us about some of your favorite hobbies, pastimes or charitable organizations that you’re involved with.
My favorite hobby is chess. I am an avid chess player. I ran a chess club twice a week at my daughter’s school. I also work with Hale House Center in Harlem, NY. It’s a child-centered and family-focused program dedicated to building better future for children and families in their community. It’s a great program they take care of children who have been abandoned or mothers have a history of substance abuse. I participate in the gala and fundraisers events they host. One of their events is Bikers for Babies. Motorcycle crews drop of truck loads of diapers for babies. I teach chess there as well.
