"AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL" JUDGE NIGEL BARKER AND DAVID'S BRIDAL CROWN HOUSTON TEEN "GLAMOUR GIRL" FOR A DAY

Contest Winner Monica Lopez Awarded Celebrity-Style Photo Shoot in NYC with Nigel Barker

CONSHOHOCKEN, PA - May 5, 2008 -- Following a nationwide search to find the ultimate prom-goer, the David's Bridal "Glamour Girl" contest culminated this past week with Nigel Barker, everyone's favorite "America's Next Top Model" judge and celebrity fashion photographer, crowning a winner. The noted photographer partnered with David's Bridal, the leading bridal and special occasion authority, to give one lucky girl the opportunity to be the subject of a celebrity-style photo shoot with Barker and to receive the prom dress of their choice. Monica Lopez - a senior at DeBakey High School for Health Professionals in Houston, TX - was selected from over 25,000 entries submitted to davidsprom.com by contest hopefuls.

The deserving high school senior was chosen by the leading photographer - who shot the David's Bridal prom campaign and served as their spokesperson - based on her presentation style, creativity, fashion sense and overall personality. Citing her inspirations to become a model or doctor, Monica stood out from the competition because of her strong commitment to volunteer work, as well as integral role as the editor-in-chief of her high school yearbook. After narrowing down the impressive "prom court" to 10 semifinalists, Monica was then chosen as one of three finalists, following an online vote on davidsprom.com. She clinched the grand prize spot after charming Barker during a phone interview. To inform her of her win, Monica received a surprise phone call from Nigel Barker himself while shopping for her prom dress at the Houston David's Bridal location.

Following her senior prom, the excitement continued as Monica was flown to New York City this past week for the full star treatment at her very own photo shoot. After being pampered by Nigel's "Glam Squad" - which included in-studio hair and make-up - Monica was photographed in a glamorous David's Bridal prom dress for this once-in-a-lifetime experience. Fulfilling her life-long dream of becoming a model, she practiced her poses with her favorite photographer and worked the camera like a "top model." The picture-perfect images from her shoot will be posted on davidsprom.com.

"We received so many great entries, but we were really impressed with Monica's dedication to her studies, vivacious personality and passion to help others," said Nigel. "We feel that she is a true role model, so it was wonderful that David's Bridal and I were able to give her this opportunity to fulfill a dream. Not to mention that she was a natural in front of the camera - we may have just discovered a new model for the ad campaign!"

The top ten semi-finalists of the "Glamour Girl" Contest also received a David's Bridal prom dress, along with a $50 gift certificate towards accessories. With over 280 locations nationwide and prom fashion and camera-ready tips from Barker available online, David's Bridal makes it easy for every girl to have an unforgettable "red carpet" prom experience.

With more than 50 years of experience, David's Bridal understands the importance of providing teens and brides-to-be with a vast selection of exquisitely crafted dresses, available at affordable prices. Today, with more than 280 locations nationwide, David's Bridal continues to expand its retail store locations, while maintaining its philosophy of superior quality, value and service.
