     Glamour Girl Contest: Win the Ultimate Star Treatment with Nigel
     With glamorous celebrity fashions topping the list as the ultimate
 inspiration when shopping for prom, David's Bridal is making girls' red
 carpet fantasies a reality! David's has launched a national "Glamour Girl"
 contest, wherein one lucky grand prize winner will get to practice her
 poses at a celebrity-style photo shoot with Nigel. Now through March 15 at, girls can submit a photo and short paragraph, or a video,
 on why they should be awarded the ultimate star treatment. For 10 weeks,
 one semifinalist will be announced weekly and the "prom court" will be
 narrowed to three finalists after an online vote March 18 - March 31. On
 April 8, Nigel will crown the "Glamour Girl," who will be awarded an
 unforgettable trip to New York City for the full celebrity experience. Not
 only will the winner be pampered by Nigel's "Glam Squad," including
 in-studio hair and makeup styling, but she will also receive a David's prom
 dress of her choice for an exclusive photo shoot with Nigel. Ten
 semifinalists will win a David's prom dress along with a $50 gift
 certificate toward those perfect finishing touches.
     Visualize Prom Perfection: Innovative Online Technology
     David's also just launched a new virtual prom fashion gallery,
 Promtourage, which lets girls bring their prom style to life before the big
 night. Not only can they "try on" hundreds of prom dresses and fashionable
 accessories from the Red Carpet Gallery, they can personalize their looks,
 change backgrounds and even invite friends to be part of their Promtourage
 scene. Visitors can also "virtually" shop for dresses (and matching
 tuxedos), chat with friends on the prom Message Board and email their
 favorite selections. When their one-of-a-kind look is set, girls can simply
 print out their shopping list and head to the nearest David's Bridal store
 to get everything they need, from head-to-toe, to be camera-ready for the
 hottest night of the year! In addition, style savvy girls can visit David's
 prom website for Nigel's expert tips and check out behind-the-scenes videos
