Prom dress spotted with “ruff” – Fashion Police appalled

Prom-dress-with-ruff

  WHAT? NO! Oh, someone say it ain't so!

This picture was sent to us by Fashion Police Office Kristina, who found it on a prom dress site. Now, the dress itself we're not going to take issue with but the RUFF on the other hand: well, that's another matter altogether, isn't it? And sure, we like the Elizabethan period too. And a little nod towards fashion history is perfectly acceptable, even welcomed in some outfits, but this? This looks less like a Elizabethan ruff, and more like one of those tubes you put around a dog's neck to stop him scratching his ears. We're both puzzled and appalled. Although, we have to admit, it would be fun to see her try to eat or drink while wearing this, no?

    This is the least practical accessory perhaps ever invented. It’s like a cone-collar for dogs except on a woman- it makes no sense!

    I think parents will be thrilled by this, especially fathers. At least they’ll know for sure their daughter will have a hard time getting to first base with her date.
