  • Bella Thorne's and Tristan Klier's Homecoming Night!

    Our hearts were broken when we heard that Bella Thorne and Tristan Klier broke up, after 3 years of dating. But, Bella recently agreed to still go to Homecoming with Tristan, so we're holding on that there still may be hope for their relationship! The two recently posted such cute pictures from their Homecoming dance from last weekend...they certainly look like they had an incredible time, and makes us think that they really are giving their relationship another shot!

    Seventeen Magazine explained that they started out the night at Tristan's house, "and took the obligatory all-the-couples-in-the-living-room homecoming pic and Bella looked gorgeous!" We couldn't agree more! Check out the pics:

    Seventeen Magazine then explained: "Then Tristan and Bella took a picture in front of their limo with Tristan's twin brother (who's equally as gorgeous as Tristan) and his date!"

    Everyone definitely looks very "dapper!" Love Bella's super fitted bandage dress? Get a look just like hers with Mac Duggal style 40308! Just like Bella's dress, this avant-guard dress forms to your figure and accentuates your curves with a deep v-cut neckline.

    Or, get that pretty in pink look like Bella's in a bandage dress with Sherri Hill style 32048. This is a short and sexy bandage dress with a sheer beaded lace halter neckline and a beaded lace back with a key hole slit.

    The best thing about these dresses is that they are timeless, and will always give you a stunning form fitting look. So, you can easily take either of these dresses from Homecoming to your next semi-formal or formal occasion. Just like Bela's dress, Tristan's twin brother's date wore just as classic and timeless of a dress: a little black dress! For a so simple and classic look like above go with La Femme style 19842. This is an amazing fit and flare dress with a sweetheart neckline and low v back. The dress has black lace over the nude and a sheer net high neckline. The dress has pockets on both sides of the skirt and the back is completely covered in sheer net.

  • Dress Code Enforcement at Homecoming Leaves Students Upset

    Dress codes at homecoming and prom dances have been a hot topic over the past few years, and in some cases we can understand why dress codes need to be enforced, but there are many occasions where dress codes are either enforced too strictly, unjustly, and/or unfairly. Well, we recently read a story of some girls that experienced what we believe to be all three of those things at their homecoming dance in South Jordan, Utah. FOX13 Salt Lake City covered the story. You can read it below in its entirety, unaltered as originally reported on, so that you can decide whether or not these girls were treated unfairly or not.

    Tayler Gillespie was turned away from her homecoming dance at Bingham High School Saturday, and the teen wasn’t the only who expressed frustration over dress code enforcement at the dance.

    “They said I either have to go home and get something to go under, or I’m not allowed in,” Gillespie said. “So I just decided to leave.”

    And she wasn’t the only one

    “They pulled me to the side and asked me to twirl around to see if I was immodest, then made me sit against the wall,” Erika Shepherd said. “And while I was sitting against the wall there was about ten other girls that were sitting there being embarrassed.”

    Erika showed us her dress. It spills onto the floor, but Erika said those who were in charge of the dance told her: “It’s too low in the back’ and I needed to get a jacket or go home and change clothes.”

    FOX 13 News reached out to assistant principal Janalee Taylor, who was at the dance. She declined an on-camera interview but told us the school’s dress code for dances is very clear. She said it’s on the schools website, is sent out as a reminder on a paper attached to dance tickets, and is reinforced in the annual school standards assembly.

    It states in part: “Hemlines should go no higher than mid-thigh when seated.”

    That’s the reason Tayler said she was asked to leave.

    “It’s been the same standards assembly for three years, they always have the same power point,” she said.

    But she said dresses worn in past years were scrutinized this year, and not allowed.

    Tayler also said she was never asked to sit to see where her hemline would fall.

    “They just took a wild guess and said, ‘You’re not admitted in.’”

    Veronica Perhson, Tayler’s mother, spoke about the issue.

    “I understand the need for a dress code, but I think it needs to be applied straight forward,” she said.

    Tayler’s parents went to the school to speak with those in charge Saturday night, but they said they had a hard time getting answers.

    “I asked them why they turned her away and then showed them a picture of her on the phone I’d taken myself of her sitting down where the dress meets her knees,” said Tayler’s father, Chad Perhson.

    See the video above for images of the dresses mentioned in this story. Maddi Rowley is another student who was upset about the situation, and she emailed FOX 13 News a picture of her dress as well as her comments.

    She stated: “Other girls were admitted into the dance wearing my same dress in different colors. I was in high heals (sic), as you can see, and I am a taller girl. I am very angry, especially because my date couldn’t get his money refunded. Surely you can understand the injustice. I’m nearly an adult, and my parents allowed me to go out in this dress.”

    -FOX13 Salt Lake City

    Here's the picture that Maddi Rowley provided to FOX13 Salt Lake City that the news channel posted:

    bingham-high-school-dress

    It's always hard to get the full story on something, but it definitely seems like something went wrong at the dance. We're glad to see that the parents are stepping in to defend their daughter, especially since it seems as if they did in fact follow the dress codes that were in place. And, it's always a good sign when parents 'approve' of their daughters' outfits - they're usually the strictest critics, after all! Not only that, but from everything we see at Rissy Roo's parents are usually very involved in the picking out and purchase of their daughters' prom and homecoming dresses.

  • This Homecoming Queen is also her School's Football Kicker

    South Jones High School senior Mary Kate Smith is one busy girl. This Fall brings on her Homecoming Dance, where she's the reigning homecoming queen, dedication to her Mississippi school's soccer team, oh and one more thing... the new kicker for her school's varsity football squad!

    Mary Kate Smith is Homecoming Queen and the kicker on her school's football team

    Already a star on her school's soccer team, she's bringing her golden foot to a new team - she's the first girl to make the school's varsity football squad. Her response if someone tells her she plays like a girl? Here's what she told TODAY.com:

    "I'm me, and I'm not trying to be anybody else. I'll take that as a compliment."

    TODAY.com got the whole scoop on this talented girl who proudly wears two things on her head: a homecoming crown, and a football helmet. TODAY.com explained that her football coach, Corey Reynolds, said one of his assistants, Matt Smith, the strength and conditioning coach for Mary Kate's soccer team, suggested Mary Kate be the kicker that'd sought all summer long. Corey explained, "It just turned out to be a blue-eyed, homecoming-queen soccer player."

    sev-football-star-lgn

    Corey said he was amazed at the way Mary Kate could kick a 40-yard field goal in practice, calling her "one of the most highly competitive athletes - male or female - I've ever seen."

    Mary Kate said field-goal kicks are in theory easier than kicking a soccer goal because the ball is stationary in football, but "the pressure is 10 times worse [in football], with big guys running at you who outweigh you by 200 pounds."

    Sounds pretty scary to us, that's for sure!

    Of course, Mary Kate's parents are so proud of her! Her dad said, "Here, in the South, where traditional values are very traditional, we were a little concerned about how well she'd be accepted. We've been pleasantly surprised by the support that the community has shown her. We've got a renewed faith that things are equalized for her, and for girls like her." Check out her friends cheering her on, all wearing "We <3 Mary Kate Smith" shirts!

    Mary Kate's got a lot to be looking forward to when she graduates from high school and moves onto college. She's planning on playing Division-I soccer next fall at the University of Souther Mississippi and considering a career as an orthodontist. Good luck as South Jones High School's Homecoming Queen Football Kicker!
