Top 5 Worst Prom Dresses of 2013

It's early April, and no one has asked me to the prom. Yet.

I would be an awesome prom date. I have my own car, and I can buy beer. In addition, my prom fashion sense simply cannot be topped.

My high school has started doing The Best Thing Ever. They do a promenade as everyone is headed into prom. And it's shown LIVE on the local cable channel. This means that last year, my family sat transfixed around the teevee, watching all the kids get out of their cars and hobble into the school in their dress shoes and too-high heels.

It was fabulous.

Most of the girls needed lessons in how to walk in heels and how to keep their dresses from falling down. Ah, youth.

But some of the girls needed intervention before the prom. They needed assistance in the dressing room when they were buying their fashions.

OK, listen.

Kids these days with their princess- and vampire-inspired dresses don't know what they are missing.   Read more >

The conversation went something like this: "My dress? I just remember bows. Everything had bows. Bows on the boobs, bows on the butt, bows around the bottom, clip-on bows for my shoes, bows in my hair ... " "Mine was short, and the entire bodice was made of stretchy black sequins." "Whoa. Black sequins? That sounds ... " I was sure my friend was going to tell me that my sequined dress sounded like a joke. But she surprised me. "... kind of AMAZING."   Read more >

The 10 Worst Prom Dresses of 2014

Scrolling through some popular prom dress sites today, I witnessed crimes against fashion, not to mention propriety. I saw perfectly adorable trends like peplums, neons, ruffles, and pastels massacred in cold blood. I saw highly dubious trends like Dynasty-esque beading, cutouts, ruffles, and the inexplicable (to me, anyway) pageant-ish ballgown look cross the line from tasteless to felonious. And—oh, the humanity—THE COST. Yes, cold hard cash is the motive for these crimes.   Read more >
