Prom Special 2009: Michelle Wilson
Our Second ‘Prom-ista’ is 18 year-old Michelle Wilson of Washington D.C. Michelle’s Prom took place at the suburban ‘Bethesda Marriott’ located in Bethesda, Maryland. Her look was far from traditional; it was a blend of girlish glam with edge. Michelle was clad in an “Estelle’s” black satin finished short bubble dress, with criss-cross straps, complete with a white satin sash which tied into a bow in the back. (Ps. Her Mom added the straps :-). Her shoes -a pair of black leather open-toe /sling back gladiator style sandals. Michelle kept her accessories simple by wearing a multi layered black beaded necklace- “I didn’t want the typical prom look with the long gown and up-do, I really just wanted to wear something that was me, although I did want to change it up a little by cutting my hair” explains Michelle who sported a freshly cut bob.
One of Michelle’s favorite memories of her prom was “the limo ride there”. “We started prom a little early”, says Wilson, “I enjoyed just being with my friends, taking pictures and dancing the whole night” -and what girl wouldn’t, it’s one of the most memorable times in your life. While most after proms take place in a club atmosphere, Michelle’s High School headed to the restaurant /arcade ‘Dave & Busters’ were they played games till four in the morning. Sounds like a super fun ending to me. Wilson recently graduated from Woodrow Wilson Senior High School in D.C and plans to attend Charleston Southern University in Charleston, SC were she will major in ‘Behavioral Science’. When it comes to her future; Michelle intends to move to New York where she will pursue her profession as Psychiatrist-looks like this ‘Prom-ista’ has the total package –‘Beauty and Brains’.
