Hollywood K.I.D.S. Benefit

Ooh! La, La! Couture and Disney Star Host Tutus 4 Tots

In mid-February, Ooh! La, La! Couture and Disney star Bella Thorne invited young Hollywood to distribute over 300 new dresses to underprivileged girls, making the Second Annual Tutus 4 Tots a huge success! The Los Angeles, CA-based Ooh! La, La! coordinated with  the Volunteers of America Los Angeles to invite girls from its Strengthening Families Program -which assists families that are either homeless or at risk for becoming homeless –donating about $24,000 in new merchandise to Kids In Distressed Situations (K.I.D.S.).

The room was filled with poufy tutus and huge smiles as surprised families were treated to fun fashions, sparkly shoes, headbands and cupcakes. Enthusiastic young Hollywood celebs escorted little girls through racks of colorful dresses, signed autographs and posed for photos. All the guests were brought to tears when one mother thanked everyone, saying that it was her daughter’s first birthday and she couldn’t afford to give her a present, so she was grateful that a beautiful new dress given to her.

Bella Thorne was joined by fellow Shake It Up cast members Roshon Fegan, Adam Irigoyan and Davis Cleveland, as well as other hot stars Billy Unger, Morgan Lily, Jadin Gould, Kathryn Newton, Pia Mia Perez, Kaitlyn Maher, Elsie Fischer, Ashlee Keating, Daphne Blunt, Emily Grace Reaves, Avalon and Alexis and Natalia.

Co-owners Ann Dugourd and Jennifer Rotunno founded the line of fun and funky, yet sweet and girly clothes eight years ago and regularly gives back by donating clothing to children in need. Since 2007, Ooh! La, La! Couture has donated over $272,000 in new dresses to K.I.D.S.

China Doll Shoes generously donated a new pair of shoes for every girl in the room. Penelope Wildberry, Pink Pewter, Top Trenz, Gaby! Be Gorgeous, Be Happy! and Bracelets by Caley Camarillo also donated merchandise to make this event special.
