Operation PROM



I find my glory on stage at pageants wearing gorgeous gowns, so I know what it means when they say "a dress can transform a girl". This weekend I was invited to make an appearance and model at an event in support of a super cool organization called Operation PROM. A pageant gown can reach upward of a thousand dollars and prom gowns trail close at a couple hundred. With that being said many low-income students can't afford designer prom gowns, but that is where Operation PROM has decided to step in by giving away free gowns to make sure anyone can feel confident and beautiful on their special night.

The show coincidentally happened to take place on International Pageant Day and many other titleholders were also modeling, so we had a blast getting show ready and shopping afterwards. We modeled a bunch of the gowns that were going to be donated and promoted the giveaway days for 2016. I literally can't wait to see pictures of all of the beautiful ladies who will rock the dresses at prom. 

Thanks to Chereese and Patrick from Events to Remember for treating us like queens! Also, shoutout to Blane Charles for being an amazing stylist and making me look fab on the runway.

On a side note, I'm sure you remember a few weeks ago I shared behind-the-scenes scoop from The Rachael Ray Show and my episode will be airing on TV TOMORROW, April 13. A ton of you have been asking me about it and I'm so excited for you to tune in to see the full segment!

  1. you're so lovely! ALL the girls are lovely but you're the most stunning one. You're so tall Raquel. I think the operation prom is really great, thinking of those girls who can't afford to glam up. This is really a great campaign. :)
