A Cinderella Story At East Rockaway High, Courtesy Of Rent The Runway

In the somber months after Hurricane Sandy, residents of the hardest-hit areas have found hope. But while home restoration and the implementation of longer-term preventative measures are crucial steps in the right direction, also important factors are reminders of the fun and beautiful things that life has to offer. So, Rent The Runway recently treated the students of East Rockaway High School, whose campus was severely devastated and displaced by Sandy, to a Dream Prom Styling Party.

Featuring RTR designer dresses, styling advice from the company's Fashion Director Lucy Sykes Rellie, complimentary tuxedo rentals from Men's Wearhouse for the fellas, hair tutorials by Drybar, makeup tutorials by Lancôme, and shoes courtesy of Nine West, the occasion was only a taste of the glamour sure to be experienced at their upcoming prom in late June. The dance itself is to be co-designed and decorated by Rent The Runway and celebrity party planner David Tutera, and will feature a surprise celeb performance. The evening will surely be a midsummer night's dream to remember.
