The 10 Worst Prom Dresses of 2014

4 years ago

Scrolling through promgirl.com 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.

The Bunny Boob

Jovani, $440.

The "Got My Bedsheet Caught in My Beaded Teddy Again"

Jovani, $790.

The Zentangle

Tony Bowls, $550.

The Music Box Dancer

Sherri Hill, $500.

The Zipper Stripper

Tony Bowls, $590. (But it's reversible! BARGAIN TIME.)

The Knee-Jazzle

Jovani, $950. NINE HUNDRED FIFTY DOLLARS.

The Shredded Barbie

Flirt, $528.

The '80s Video Vixen

Sherri Hill, $398.

The Xena, Warrior Prom Queen

.

The SMH I Can't Even No Just No

Night Moves (seriously, Night Moves), $398.

In case you've forgotten, this crime wave is not new; check out last year's five worst prom dresses. Was it worse last year or this year? And am I off base about any of these tragedies?
