The 10 Worst Prom Dresses of 2014

3 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?
