  • Kate McKinnon Takes Home Her First Award At The 2016 Emmys

    Comedian Kate McKinnon has been taking the media by storm, through her Ellen DeGeneres and Hilary Clinton impressions on Saturday Night Live to her incredible performance in the Ghostbusters re-boot this year. Through all of her hard work and ability to bring joy and laughter to millions of people, she finally took home her first Emmy award at this year's 68th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony! She won the 2016 Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Emmy Award.

    While everyone is so happy for her win, people can't stop talking about her acceptance speech. She was so surprised that she blurted out, "I'm shaking!" while giving her speech, and even said that she was crying. She gave the normal "thank you's" to family and those who have helped her within the industry. She gave a shout-out to her now deceased father, explaining that he made her start watching SNL when she was 12. She also managed to fit in thanking the two celebrities that helped bring her to fame: Ellen DeGeneres and Hillary Clinton.

    The best part? Hillary Clinton responded on Twitter that she's big fans of Kate, and offered her congratulations! She even posted a meme of Kate doing an impression of Mrs. Clinton. Check out the tweet from the presidential nominee below.  Continue reading

  • Our First 2016 Prom Princess: Alyssa Torres

    Our 2016 Rissy Roo's Prom Queen Contest is in full swing, and this past Friday (May 20th), we chose our very first weekly winner, better known as a Prom Princess. We're happy and excited to announce that our first Prom Princess is the beautiful Alyssa Torres!

    Alyssa won a $50 gift certificate to RissyRoos.com, and will also be in the running in June to become our 2016 Rissy Roo's Prom Queen to win the grand prize of a $100 gift certificate.

    Prom Princess

    We chose Alyssa because we loved how she rocked the color red throughout her entire prom look, from the prom dress, to her lipstick, to the pretty bouquet. It's a bold color, and she wore it with such style. The pretty red prom dress that Alyssa chose is Mac Duggal 65435A. It's a striking two piece prom dress with a top that features a sweetheart neckline and illusion netting that clasps together in the back.

    Here's what Alyssa had to say about her prom dress:

    "I purchased this red two-piece prom dress in March for my senior prom on May 6th. I have worn a Rissy Roo's dress for my past 3 formals. I could not have been more happy with my dress, I loved it!! Thank you ladies for helping me find a dress I loved yet again!"

    We're so glad you loved your prom dress so much, Alyssa! Congrats on becoming our first Prom Princess, and good luck come June in the final part of our Prom Queen Contest!

  • Best Dressed on the 2014 Oscars Red Carpet!

    The 86th Annual Academy Awards have finally come and gone, and they were as great as we could have ever expected! Ellen DeGeneres was destined to be the host of the Oscars - she was so funny! And, we absolutely loved Jared Leto's acceptance speech for his work in Dallas Buyers Club (of course, we were also totally in love with the way he looked!). But, as always, our eyes were on the Red Carpet and all the gorgeous dresses that the celebrities wore! Yesterday we showed your our favorite Oscar Worthy Prom Dresses, but now that the lady celebrities have showed off their dresses, here's our best dressed on the 2014 Oscars Red Carpet Check and how you can steal their looks for prom.

    Anna Kendrick blew us away at the Academy Awards! The Twilight star's black cut-out and sheer dress was so on-trend and looked so perfect on her! We also loved how she accessorized with red nails and a matching red purse. Red and black are always a great combination, and Anna showed us exactly why.

    Night Moves 7017f-black_1 400x560

    You can so easily get Anna's look with Night Moves by Allure style 7017. This striking gown features similar geometric sheer cut-outs to Anna's gown and is form-fitting in all of the right ways. This dress also comes in Ivory and Red if you want a color that stands our a little more than the classic black look.

    Jennifer Lawrence always comes up with stylish looks to wear to awards ceremonies and this year's Oscars was definitely no different. We loved the bright, bold red peplum dress that she chose to wear. She looked so classy!

    Jovani 73539

    To get The Hunger Games star's look, check out Jovani style 73539. It's a sexy long evening gown that features a beautiful sheer sweetheart neckline, peplum at the waist, sexy open back and beautiful tulle panel detailing at the skirt. It's such a unique way to wear peplum at prom!

    Kristin Chenoweth was all glammed out in gold at the Oscars and we loved it! What better place to wear gold than at the Academy Awards? The sparkly patterns against the tulle material of the skirt on Kristin's dress made for a beautiful red carpet look.

    Nina Canacci 9022

    To glitter in gold like Kristin, Nina Canacci style 9022 is your dress. This shimmering ensemble features a strapless and sweetheart neckline. An array of sequined stripes fully covers the entire silhouette, while the side and drop waist is embellished with floral sequins for added sparkle and flair. The body skimming shape creates a captivating design that will definitely have you feeling like a celebrity at prom!
