Mar 08, 2012 -Sat. Mar. 3rd-Boyle Heights, Los Angeles- Ooh! La, La! Couture and Disney star Bella Thorne invited young Hollywood to distribute over 300 new dresses to underprivileged girls, making this 3rd Annual “Tutus4Tots” event a huge success! Benefiting Kids In Distressed Situations, Ooh! La, La! Couture continues their mission to provide dresses to girls in need. Coordinating with K.I.D.S, the Volunteers of America Los Angeles focused on inviting girls from their Strengthening Families Program, which assists families that are either homeless or at risk for becoming homeless.
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. The little girls couldn’t wait to change into their carefully chosen dresses and run around the party together. The kids were excited to hang out with their favorite celebrities, pose on the “pink” carpet, and were even treated to an impromptu dance lesson lead by Dancing With The Stars’ newest cast member Roshon Fegan!
Ooh! La, La! Couture is proud to continue partnering with Disney star Bella Thorne, bringing attention to the importance of donating to children in need. She was joined by fellow “Shake It Up” cast members Roshon Fegan, Caroline Sunshine, and Kenton Duty; Kelli Berglund (Disney’s Lab Rats); Dylan Riley Snyder (Disney’s Kickin’ It); Alli Simpson (model Pastry Shoes); Skai Jackson (Disney’s Jessie); Allisyn Arm and Audrey Whitby (Disney’s So Random); Jadin Gould (upcoming release “Man of Steel”); Kathryn McNamara (New Year’s Eve); Pia Mia Perez (Recording Artist); Ava Allan (model Justice); Alexis and Natalia (Hollywood Teenzine) 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.

Since 2007, Ooh! La, La! Couture has donated over $400,000 worth of new dresses to K.I.D.S. China Doll Shoes generously donated a new pair of shoes for every girl in the room.
