Pre-Prom Soiree: Celebrate Morgan!

All that glitters was definitely gold for this young Diva. Now, you have heard of MTV’s Sweet Sixteen, but we have taken it up another level, away from birthdays, and focused on one young woman’s pre-prom party.  We spared no expense for Morgan as we incorporated all of her favorite things into this event. That means the fusion of stilettos, sparkle and tacos all in one event. Yes, we said tacos! And with Khloe Kardashian’s 2015 Golden Globes look, we of course had to make it as glamorous as possible.

For Morgan, the excitement happened immediately, and as soon as she told The Diva that she wanted her primary colors to be black and gold, The Diva had no problems getting right to work. However, a young modern woman like Morgan voted against the Old Hollywood aesthetic. Instead, she wanted something more “hip,” something that reflected more of what her generation of young women are: FLAWLESS. Did The Diva deliver? “She made it better,” Morgan commented with regards to the event. “The center pieces were OMG– I was so impressed.” The Diva ensured Morgan felt like a proper Diva on her special day, as she brought together the whole celebrity package.

With the help of celebrity make-up artist, Dee Dee Kelly, celebrity stylist, Kyle Alexander and celebrity hair dresser, DaRico Jackson, Morgan was able to have her own glam squad and live the life of a celebrity. So how was it? “I was really excited. The whole getting ready and getting pampered and stuff.” The theme of the pre-prom party was “Celebrate Morgan,” and celebrated she certainly was. From morning until afternoon, Morgan was pampered from head to toe. “Getting everything done at the same time, in the same room… and staying still” took a bit of getting used to, but with her experienced glam squad, getting used to this fabulous life was no problem. 

Of all of Morgan’s favorite things, what was the number one thing she absolutely had to have? “My DJ, DJ Bugsy. I DJ on the side, so I told him I had to have him there,” and he certainly delivered. Morgan decided to make her grand entrance to the party with DJ Bugsy playing a bit of Bey and The Bay, dancing to “Feeling Myself,” and “Super Hyphy” by Keak da Sneak. By dancing her way into the party, this young Diva was able to conquer a high-heeled worry, “If I came out dancing, it wouldn’t be so scary.” Needless to say, Morgan looked flawless throughout the afternoon’s festivities. #SLAY. 

So would Morgan recommend The Diva to plan other pre-prom soirees? “Of course! A lot of friends came up to me asking who did my party. They asked a lot for her business card.” In fact, Morgan commented on how one of her close friends is already planning her own pre-prom party for next year with The Diva as the event planner. 

Needless to say that with some applaud-worthy help from our friends, Morgan’s Prom soiree was a hit, all that was needed were the paparazzi– oh wait, she definitely had those. With more than 225 people in attendance, this glamorous Diva was able to make a grand entrance to the pre-prom party and exit. Did we mention she’s only in high school? 

Morgan has many more years of slaying to do, four of which will be spent at Howard University in Washington D.C. starting in the Fall. So when asked if she’s ready for this upcoming transition she was quick to say, “I’m ready to go!” And how could she not be ready when she has a strong support system that includes her friends, grandmother, grandfather, aunts, uncles, and above else, her mother, The Divine Diva herself. When we asked Morgan who she looked up to the most she gave us the most heartfelt response, “I know what my mom has been through and I’ve heard stories… and she’s someone that I admire.” Congratulations, Morgan!
