Karl Lagerfeld Is Giving Away Prom Dresses This Month

  Karl Lagerfeld Is Giving Away Prom Dresses This Month Back in my day, all the 17-year-old girls only wanted to wear BCBG Max Azria dresses. Thanks to Karl Lagerfeld, this year’s batch of prom-goers may end up going to high school’s biggest night out in a dress designed by the man behind Chanel’s most fabulous looks. The designer’s namesake Karl Lagerfeld Paris brand has teamed up with Girls Inc. of New York City, a local organization that works to empower and educate young women, to make sure every girl has the chance to go to prom in a pretty dress.

Though she said she was proud of her daughter, Bridget confessed that she 'wasn't happy' on the day of the wedding, but added: 'I'll keep that to myself.' Meanwhile in another example of convention defied, we met 26- year - old Pricilla, who ran away to get married then had a divorce

"I didn't want a husband. I didn't want a boyfriend," Penny told us. "I just wanted a companion — someone to watch movies with and go out to eat with. I didn't want a real relationship."

Richard, 74, lived just a half hour away, and quickly won her over and their whirlwind romance began. The couple went on dinner dates, attended church together, planned trips, and, eventually, Penny moved in with Richard.

Tori, who Penny and Richard credit as their matchmaker, was a part of the relationship every step of the way, whether she was driving Penny to and from dates or offering her advice.

And when Richard realized he wanted to marry Penny, he had to ask Tori for her permission. Of course, she said yes. 

To mark the occasion, Tori threw Penny what sounds like a legendary surprise bachelorette party a few weeks later. "She didn't know about it at all," Tori said of her gandmother. "She's a very humble person. If someone's going to do something for her, she tells them not to do it because the thought of it is enough for her."
