Gossip Girl’s Blair & Dan Kiss; Prom Dresses from David’s Bridal

If you’re an avid Gossip Girl fan, then you probably already know that Dan and Blair (Penn Badgley and Leighton Meester), will share another kiss in one of the episodes. Here’s a shot of that scene; this was taken just this Monday (February 6):

I’m not exactly a “Dan & Blair” fan so I cannot squeal in delight over this pic, but I am loving the pink layered ball gown on Leighton Meester (as seen in full view below). Now that’s what you call a gown worthy of a princess. The piece is from Oscar de la Renta, and while I don’t have a clue how much it costs (yet), it did inspire me to feature a few more prom dresses for our young and fashionable readers today:

A good store to check out for prom pieces is David’s Bridal. They not only sell bridal gowns, but dresses for every special occasion you can think of as well. They also offer accessories such as shoes, bags, jewelry, gloves, and hair pieces to help you complete your red carpet look. Hey, they even offer tuxedos, invitations, and reception favors!

Now down to those prom dresses, shopping for a prom dress at David’s Bridal is pretty easy because they have subcategories that will help filter through the hundreds of gorgeous dresses. You can shop by hemline, by cut or silhouette, by color, and there’s even a section dedicated solely for plus size prom dresses, as well as affordable looks you can grab at less than $100. Helpful links such as Top Trends for Prom 2012 and Prom Hair Tips are available as well.
