Eric Daman's collection of prom dresses for Charlotte Russe goes up for sale online Monday. The affordable line (prices range from $39.50 to $49.50) includes everything from short tight freakum dresses to longer gowns, as you can see in a preview on Glamour.com. Daman happens to know a thing or two about looking hot at the most important night of high school, ladies, and it's not just because he plays pretend high school when he works on Gossip Girl. In fact, he's known what's made a glam high schooler since he himself was in high school.
"At my senior prom, my girlfriend Talitha won prom princess. We had been to Paris with French Club over spring break, and I helped her find this trés a la mode LBD at a tiny designer boutique. It was a popcorn lycra tube, very tight, that hit right above the knee with an off-the-shoulder silk organza neckline. Very avant for the Midwest!" As for his own wardrobe that year? "I wore a traditional morning suit with a black ascot and a vintage brooch from my mom's jewelry box."
Daman offered this advice to girls readying for prom about choosing shoes and handbags: "Mix it up, try not to be matchy matchy!" We might say, WWBD? What would Beyoncé do? These shoes, probably.
