Lord & Taylor Announces 2016 Prom King “Teen Wolf” Actor, Cody Saintgnue
New York, NY – (February 23, 2016) – Lord & Taylor is proud to announce Actor and Model Cody Saintgnue as its 2016 Prom King. Saintgnue will model a key prom style in an event at the New York City flagship store, as well as be featured in the retailer’s upcoming marketing campaign.
Following the success of last year’s inaugural all-store prom fashion show, Lord & Taylor will host 2016 prom fashion shows in all 50 of its locations on Saturday, March 5. Saintgnue will be the featured model in the Fifth Avenue flagship show. Local New York City high school students will walk in the show alongside Saintgnue, all of whom will don this season’s key prom trends and styles.
“Wow! What an honor to be crowned Lord & Taylor’s 2016 Prom King,” said Cody Saintgnue. “I’m totally loving this—I get to revisit prom a second time, in even more “king-worthy”, fashionable attire,” he added.
“Cody represents the modern Prom King—charming, enthusiastic and well-dressed,” stated Nelson Mui, Lord & Taylor’s fashion director, menswear. He continued, “In this year’s campaign, Cody models the season’s trends – statement jackets in metallic fabrics and traditional styles with modern touches like a white tuxedo jacket updated with a slim lapel and single button closure, both by Tallia Orange.”
Saintgnue was photographed for Lord & Taylor’s prom campaign in New York earlier this year. The images will be featured in the widely-distributed prom catalog, as well as on LordandTaylor.com’s dedicated prom boutique. Additionally, the assets will appear on signage in stores and shared through Lord & Taylor’s social media channels.
Saintgnue is best known for his role on MTV’s hit show, ‘Teen Wolf’ where he played Brett Talbot, a young werewolf in Satomi Ito’s pack. He has also starred in the short films “The Storybook Killer”, “Sessions”, and “Table Manners”, as well as the thriller “Preservation”. He began acting and modeling at the age of nine.
