Cassandra’s Trip to NYC!
by Cassandra Morris
Hey prom girls! I spent the weekend coast-hopping. I flew from Los Angeles to New York City and right back again. It was a total whirlwind!
Since it’s prom shopping season, I was invited to talk on ABC World News Now and Inside Edition about the latest dress trends, and (bonus!) got to spend some time in the NYC David’s Bridal store checking out their huge selection.
At ABC World News Now, I was talking with host Paula Faris about my favorite David’s Bridal prom dresses that look like they were ripped right from the red carpet. Using Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift and Mandy Moore as inspiration, I had three models show off an all-over sequin gown, a strapless red mermaid gown and a gorgeous, glittery ball gown.
It was my first time being a guest on ABC World News Now, and I wanted to stand out but still be a bit conservative. I chose a fuchsia dress with long sleeves and a full short skirt, and accessorized with a thick black belt and black wedges. What do you think of my look?
We finished taping just before midnight and I immediately hopped into a cab to go back to my hotel. I had to be hair and makeup ready at 8:15 a.m. to shoot a segment for Inside Edition. There was barely any time for beauty sleep… so I was running on pure adrenaline.
I also had the chance to appear on Inside Edition where I talked about the latest trends, prom dress codes that some schools have and how to tell if your dress makes the cut. I had two models show off some flattering yet appropriate prom dresses… and I wore an adorable little black dress from David’s Bridal!

My interview was mostly a close-up shot, so I chose a one-shoulder dress with cute flowers on the strap that added extra detailing. I accessorized by stacking champagne and gold-colored bracelets on one wrist, and donned the same black wedges that I wore the night before.

We wrapped about two hours of shooting, and I had to head straight back to the airport. Luckily I managed to sneak in two slices of New York pizza before I boarded the plane. Now I’m back in Los Angeles, and I can’t wait to do it all again!
