Crazy things happen at prom night and my 2003 prom was not an exception. I don’t know why, but I decided to radically change my hairstyle on the day of the event. I booked an appointment at the most expensive hair salon in Minsk, Belarus, where I lived at the time, and instructed my hairdresser Maria (I still remember her name!) to cut my hair short and color it bright orange. My mom cried when she saw that orange was apparently the new black, but I felt very proud of my new hairstyle. The only thing that bothered me was that my new hair didn’t quite match my dark brown gown ornamented with blue crystals and matching blue crystal necklace.
I still regret that my prom dress was overshadowed by my new hair color, and wish that I took my prom preparation more seriously. If I picked a dress for my special night now, I would go for layers and silk. I would also pick unique accessories from natural materials and natural makeup with bold lips.
I don’t like regrets and I decided to look for a perfect imaginary prom dress that will bring up sweet memories about my high school prom. And you know what? I found a perfect prom dress at Bene Rialto showroom located in the heart of the Garment District.
The breathtaking couture gown that I am wearing in these photos is designed by the Nha Khanh label. The dress is so stunning and flawlessly executed that I can’t stop thinking about it. I guess I need a new prom to attend (with no regrets this time!).
P.S.—While at Bene Rialto that kindly hosted the Style Sprinter photo shoot, I detected they were carrying a new handbag line by Crystal Kodada that I recently interviewed! Check out her interview Crystal Kodada: Sky Is The Limit.
