Sharon Stone has signed up Hollywood's top designers for a project that aims to provide underprivileged girls gown for their prom nights.


Sharon Stone is in giving mood these days when she reportedly signs Hollywood's top fashion designers to bring into life her social mission to dress underprivileged girls for their prom nights.

"We started realizing that kids weren't going to their proms because they simply didn't have prom dresses and they could afford them," Stone said on the prom. "We started realizing what a huge thing (it is) and how compromising it can be for families; it's like a little wedding."

Having such thought in her mind, the actress "started trying to figure out how to get these big designers who are giving dresses to people to go to the Emmys, the Oscars... I called them up and I said, 'Instead of giving them to us, how about giving them to these kids."

As a result, designers like Nicole Miller and BCBG jumped to help the cause, abut whom Stone revealed, "Nicole Miller is personally opening her store and giving hundreds and hundreds of dresses, and personally dressing these girls."

Stone and her sister Kelly Stone have founded the Class of Hope 2007 initiative, which recycles outfits worn for events like the Oscars.
