Red carpets are fun and all, but Prom is where the best memories are made!
Bella Thorne recently documented her prom experience on her Instagram account, from her dress fittings with designer Sherri Hill to the big night out with boyfriend Tristan Klier. The 16 year old Disney actress announced her collaboration with Sheri Hill in late 2013 and is shown modeling a variety of dresses on the website. Even though she gave a teaser in different dresses, Bella ultimately opted for a black mini halter dress covered in patterned embellishments for the big night. Bella also used her social media influence to remind teens to make smart choices during prom season:
“This month is Alcohol Awareness Month, and I want to know what smart choices you DECIDE to make! Use #iDECIDE and tell me your reason for not drinking underage! Be safe!”
Bella is the ambassador of the #iDecide campaign, an initiative through the Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility that encourages teens to make independent decisions and say NO to underage drinking. As part of the campaign, Bella is encouraging teens to share on their own social networks how they are choosing to make smart and safe choices during difficult situations. The website BellaiDecide.com also has advice for teens on how to respond to scenarios like parties, driving, school events and academics.
With Bella as a spokesperson, and hopefully a positive influence to others, she might just help save a life. I would love to see the #iDecide campaign become a movement with more teen stars celebrating the fun you can have by just being yourself. Like at prom!
