  • Cleveland Browns' Cameron Erving Surprised High School Senior Elna By Taking Her To Prom

    Elna is 17 years old, and is a high school senior in Elyria, Ohio. She is nonverbal and uses a wheelchair because she has a rare progressive disorder. Her boyfriend, Cody Wilson, died last fall, and didn't have a date for prom. Her parents, Ebony and Ingrid Wright, took to social media to see if an athlete of the Cleveland Browns might take her to prom, as Elna is a big cleveland sports fan. Cleveland Browns center Cameron Erving stepped up to tackle prom with Elna, and it couldn't have been sweeter! Watch the video below to learn more about Elna's special night.

    We couldn't agree more with Cameron's statement: "I jumped at the opportunity, because I always thought that everyone deserves a great prom." As Elna's brother, Miles Wright, commented, prom is a culmination of your high school experience, as you move onto new stages in your life. We're so glad that Cameron helped to make Elna's prom such a special night for her. Cameron said about his experience: "Words can't really describe how I feel right now... To be able to bring that much joy to someone's life with such a small gesture." Continue reading

  • Ariel Winter's Promposal Surprise Is Super Cute (And Funny)

    Prom 2015 has brought prom proposals to new heights. Basically the days of simply just popping the question and asking someone to prom is over.... especially when it comes to celebrity promposals. Luckily, boyfriend of Modern Family star Ariel Winter knew he had a big task on hand asking a celebrity to prom, and had just the right tricks up his sleeve for Ariel's promposal. Because... not even being someone's boyfriend or girlfriend is enough to get out of promposals anymore!

    So, Ariel's boyfriend convinced a friend to pop out of a box, holding a "PROM?" sign, and throw flowers at Ariel. And, when we say throw flowers... we mean literally just chuck a bunch of flowers right at Ariel! We think they were flower petals that were supposed to be lightly tossed at Ariel. But, as the saying goes, you say "to-may-to," I say "to-mah-to." It's pretty hilarious (and cute!), and Ariel got a good laugh out of it, too. Watch the cute promposal video below to see for yourself!

    What do you think of the Ariel Winter promposal? It seems to fit her personality perfectly to us! And, her and her boyfriend look like they have a lot of fun together!

    That's not all, though - Ariel already went to prom and you can see her in her prom dress on her instagram account! She wore an elegant black and nude lace dress that we're absolutely obsessing over. Recognize it? It's a Jovani dress that we sell at Rissy Roo's: Jovani style 78450!

    Jovani style 78450 is a beautiful lace gown that features a plunging neckline and a sexy open back and nude underlay. This is definitely a dress that's fit for a celebrity. We can easily see this dress not only at prom, but on the Hollywood red carpet.

    While Jovani 78450 is *the* Ariel Winter prom gown, there are plenty more dresses that are very similar to the look she chose. For a similar look, go with Mac Duggal 61930. Just like Ariel Winter's prom dress, it's a black and nude lace gown, featuring an open back, a plunging neckline, and cap sleeves.

    Mac Duggal 61930Lace dresses, especially black and/or nude, are very popular for Prom 2015. So, if you don't like either of the above two prom dresses, there are plenty of other black lace dresses to choose from on RissyRoos.com if you want to take a cue from Ariel for prom or any other formal or semi-formal event.

    By the way, could Ariel and her boyfriend look any more classy together?! Plus, the caption on her Instagram pic is sooo cute ("Shmoopberry and I take prom<3")! If you want to see more of Ariel in her Jovani prom dress, make sure to check out her Instagram account!

  • Celebrity Promposal: Eagles Emmanuel Acho Takes Fan To Prom

    Celebrity promposals have become quite the trend lately, and we have a new one to share with you! This past January, Instagram and Twitter user Hannah Delmonte had a unique promposal for Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Emmanuel Acho. She asked Acho to maker her "the happiest girl alive" by taking her to prom. She did so by proposing that he take her up on her request if she were able to get 2,000 retweets. Acho countered her promposal, saying that 10,000 retweets would be the magic number. Well, Hannah's obviously a very determined young girl and she did not let a mere 8,000 more retweets get in her way!

    In case you couldn't tell from the photos, Hannah did it! Not only did she get 10,000 retweets, she made it to over 13,000! So, Emmanuel said "YES" to Hannah's promposal, went tux shopping, and surprised his fan at her high school with a custom Eagles jersey as a prom present. The jersey had the number 15 on it, "PROM" written on the back, and was signed by Emmanuel with a special note. So cute!

    The Eagles linebacker definitely made Hannah's perfect prom night (and day) come true! We definitely think this Emmanuel Acho promposal is one for the books. It's always so impressive to see celebrities taking time (and money) out of their busy schedules to go to prom with some of their most die hard fans. Even with how popular celebrity promposals have become, it still surprises us every time we hear about one. Acho has proven to be yet another celebrity we're adding to our all-time favorite list of celebs here at Rissy Roo's! If you could take any celebrity to prom, who would you take?

  • A So Adorbs Robin Williams and Ben Stiller Prom-posal!

    Robin Williams passed away on August 11th, and we still miss him so much. He brought an unprecedented amount of joy and laughter to this world that nobody will ever forget. From more serious movies like Good Will Hunting and Bicentennial Man, to laugh-out-loud funny movies like The Birdcage, to kids' favorites like Hook and Night at the Museum, Robin had an amazing talent and personality that will always stay in the hearts of his fans.

    Even with everything the late comedian did, two words that we never thought we'd hear in the same sentence were 'Robin Williams' and 'prom,' but the actor managed to have some prom fun during one of the last movies he filmed, Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb...and with another famous comedian, too... Ben Stiller! Skyler Gisondo, who plays the son of Ben Stiller's character in the film, was a senior in high school at the time that the film was being shot. Even though he was away from home filming Night at the Museum, he still was planning to go to prom and had a special person in mind that he wanted to ask to be his date. So, he asked his co-stars Robin Williams and Ben Stiller to give him a hand with a prom proposal! The two stars not only agreed to help Skyler in his promposal quest, but they had quite the enthusiasm to share!

    http://youtu.be/9WCEQy1-msE

    "All morning, Robin was pitching more ideas," Skyler told The Hollywood Reporter. "He was saying, 'Can I say this? Would it be appropriate to say this?' You're Robin Williams. You can say whatever you want! It turned into this three-minute, ridiculous thing. A prom-posal. I realized that was the most awesome three minutes of my life and I've accepted it will go downhill from there."

    In the super cute video, which you can watch above, Robin and Ben advertise all of the great 'benefits' of dating Skyler, and even pretend to have a whole special performance ready to go for the potential date's (Hilary's) pleasure.

    This all happened back in May, but the video is timeless for so many reasons, and shows how great (and funny) of people both Robin and Ben are. In his interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Skyler even said that his time working with Robin was "invaluable."

    "Robin was the bottomless reservoir of kindless and hilarity," Skyler told The Hollywood Reporter. "It was just so special to work so closely with this guy whose movies I've grown up with and watch his preparedness and his kindness."

    Most importantly: the Robin Williams Ben Stiller Prom-posal totally worked and landed Skyler the prom date with Hilary!

    We hope you enjoy the video as much as we did, and that perhaps it gives you some inspiration for your own promposal! Rest in peace, Robin - you continue to bring us so much joy.

  • Joe Biden Gets Asked to Prom By Connecticut Teen

    It looks like not all dream prom dates consist of hot hunk musicians and A-list actors! One Connecticut girl had her eyes on taking someone else to her prom, and he was definitely more than the average person to appear randomly on Page Six...it's Vice President Joe Biden!

    Joe Biden Vice President Joe Biden

    It turns out Talia Masseli, a student at Newington High School in Newington, Connecticut had a deep desire to have Biden escort her to her Senior Prom. She made this decision back in the Fall and took priority in writing him as soon as possible explaining, “I am inviting you so far in advance because I’m sure many 17-year-old girls send you prom invitations, and I had to beat them to it.” She later cheerily announced, “I could only tolerate a high school dance if I was to be escorted by the most delightful man in America.” Way to go Talia! If this was an election for sweetest and most confident promposal, you would have our votes!

     Even though the Vice President attending Talia's prom would have been the ultimate fairytale, Biden had a scheduling conflict that did not permit him to be in Connecticut at the same time as the event. However, Talia did receive a sweet ending! Talia got a package at her home before the prom with a beautiful corsage made of red, white, and blue flowers along with a note from Joe Biden on official White House stationary. He expressed,  “I am flattered, but my schedule will not permit me to be in Connecticut on Friday evening, but I hope you will accept this corsage and enjoy your prom as much as I did mine.” Wow, what a guy!

    Talia With Her Special Corsage Talia With Her Special Corsage

    Even though Talia didn't get to go to prom with her dream guy, she still has a wonderful story and an extra special gift! Vice President Biden invited her to visit Washington, DC this summer, which she plans to do!

  • GoProm Promposal makes for a Shaun White Prom!

    Celebrity promposals are all the rage lately, and yet another celeb delivers on an night to remember for one lucky prom-goer: Shaun White! High schooler Carly Monzo came up with such a creative idea to ask the Olympian and pro snowboarder to prom: by using a staple in the snowboarding industry, a GoPro! Carly smartly even named her promposal after the camera, with the name GoProm. So cute!

    You can watch an overview of the promposal here:

    http://youtu.be/_Wzajq741yE

    We were so happy to hear that Shaun White took time out if his busy schedule to surprise Carly at her prom! ABC had the scoop, and this is what they said:

    "A month ago, the Montgomery County senior at Mount Saint Joseph Academy in Flourtown, and her friends got creative.

    Monzo posted a video proposal online but got no response from the busy pro snowboarder, skateboarder and musician until Friday night.

    A couple hours into her prom at Whitemarsh Valley Country Club, there was a special performance.

    "Curtains drop and the band just starts jamming and I was like, 'Oh my goodness," said Monzo.

    White appeared on stage in his tux and with his band, Bad Things. They performed three songs and invited Monzo on stage.

    "To be honest with you if there wasn't pictures or video evidence, I would have thought I had a dream," she said.

    The Olympian lit up social media, snapping photos with dozens of students before revealing how he made a secret trip from Austria just to surprise Monzo.

    "It was really about being there with my friends, my whole entire grade got to share this moment with me and it was so awesome," she said."

    So cool! Click here to read the full story and see more pictures.

  • Bryan Cranston Helps a Fan Get a Date to Prom

    The Miley Cyrus promposal has been topping our charts as the best prom proposal of 2014, but we may have just discovered a new favorite! Recently, Breaking Bad fan Stefan Montana ran into actor Bryan Cranston on the streets and asked Bryan to help him with his promposal. Of course, the awesome Bryan obliged to help...in the most badass Breaking Bad way possible! Check out the Bryan Cranston promposal here:

    http://youtu.be/u408FzkwW98

    The title of the YouTube video is called "Bryan Cranston Got Me a Date to Prom!" so we can happily assume that Maddie gave a resounding "YES!" Of course, how could you say "no," to "the one who knocks" to begin with? Way too scary! If Maddie did give a "no" to the promposal, her best course of action definitely would be to tread lightly!

    We love how ecstatic both Stefan and Bryan are towards the end of the promposal - they both seemed like they had a lot of fun with it! It's definitely always exciting to see a TV star as big as Bryan Cranston having fun with his fans. And, of course, with the Breaking Bad TV show finally over, it was nice to get a little taste of Walter White back in action. You're a lucky girl, Maddie, for getting such a unique promposal from your date (and from a celebrity)! We hope the two of you have a wonderful time at prom!

    What did you think of the Bryan Cranston promposal? Do you wish you could get a celebrity in on your prompsal? We sure do! Make sure to keep your eyes peeled and your ears perked for opportunities!

  • Miley Cyrus Follows Through As Best Prom Date Ever!

    Even though we have seen many types of "promposals" this season, we must say the story of Matt Peterson asking Miley Cyrus to be his prom date takes the cake! Matt, a mega fan of Miley, got the chance of a lifetime to meet the star when she picked him out of a group of screaming fans in a parking lot and asked him to join her on a local radio show. For Matt, it was love at first sight, and since the meet and greet Matt says Miley has changed his life. In order to repay her, Matt was determined to take the singer to his prom and show her a night she would never forget. To do so, he created a video, which may be the cutest and most daring "promposal" yet!


    Even though the caring star would have loved to be Peterson's prom date, due to scheduling conflicts with her Bangerz concert tour, she was unable to accept the invitation. However, Miley did offer quite the consolation prize and invited Matt to her Arizona concert! Super excited for the show, Matt created his own unique prom "tuxedo" covered in 162 iron-on pictures of Miley's tongue, which she loves to stick out when posing for the paparazzi. Impressed with Matt's efforts, Miley gave him the real prom experience by creating prom style photos and inviting him on stage! She ended the evening by serenading Matt with her song "Adore You." We are so impressed with Miley's energy and passion for her beloved fan, and so is Matt! If you ask him..."She was the nicest person. I thought I was in love with her before—she's the most amazing person." Way to go, Matt, for taking the chance on a super star..and  Miley for possibly being the best prom date ever!
