Operation Fairy Dust is a New York based charity dedicated to providing prom dresses, shoes and jewelry to girls who may not be able to afford them otherwise. Yesterday they held their ninth annual dress giveaway in Brooklyn's Borough Hall, where girls from all over the city flocked to find their perfect outfit from dresses donated by designers like Oscar de la Renta. Volunteer Crystal Johnson told WCBS about the importance of prom night in a young girls life. "You wait for your prom day because you want to feel like Cinderella, and when your mom can't buy you a prom dress, it really shatters your dreams."

Over 1,700 teenage girls were escorted by their schools to the event. One girl said it really meant a lot to her, considering her financial situation. Frank Sinatra high school student Weronika Slotwinska works four days a week at a bakery, and began living with her boyfriend and paying rent after her mother died last December. "This was really needed considering my personal situation," she told the Post after choosing a dress from David's Bridal. It would also seem that the dress donated by Kim Kardashian would be one of the first to go, but OFP vice president Rashia Bell's questioned whether the strapless teal mini dress was age appropriate. Surely it couldn't have been as bad as these?
