Wear or Die: Ugly Prom Dresses

 

UglypromdressesIt’s Prom Time! Hooray! You’re so excited and you can’t wait to get all dressed up, but wait… when you open your closet, you find a catastrophe has occurred: it’s those pesky Fashion Police again – they’ve cleaned out your closet and left you with just two dresses to choose between, and, unfortunately for you, it’s the two dresses pictured above. You must wear one of them to the prom – or die.

So, which will it be? Will you rock up as a Shiny Cinderella, in layers of blue metallic fabric (and lace!) or will you decide to go to the other extreme, and bare it all in this slutty pink design! The choice, dear readers, is yours!

(To help you along, we’ve written some simple RULES which you can read before making your decision.)

Please check out the other ugly prom dresses on our site.

    Shiny metallic everytime. At least I would stand out a bit! And with the heavy application (ok, an overdose perhaps) of imagination I could ALMOST believe I was Cinderella?!
    My leavers prom coincided nicely with the rise and rise of the Spice Girls, so dresses similar to the pink trashy number were in abundance. I was in a classy monochrome gown, but did let myself down with some very Baby-Spice-esque white platform sandals!

    Cinderalla, definitely. At least I could wear vintage “thematic” jewelry and pretend I’d purposely gone for the fantasy-princess look. The pink monstrosity, on the other hand, would make me look like I’d gone for the Pretty Woman BEFORE her decision to go back to school look.

    I’d go with the slutty pink and just try to tone it down by wearing my hair down and HOPING it’s long enough to cover at least SOME of my skin.
    The cinderella one is just too *hideous*!

    I’d have to go with the blue one, since the pink one would make me bulge in all sorts of unsightly ways. Of course, I might hide in the bathroom all night…

    Cinderella for me. I’m actually slightly fascinated by the irridescent tiers, oddly.But mostly I chose it because the blue number seems more likely to be forgiving to figure flaws. It’s really hard to say which one is uglier. It’s one of those cancer v. heart attack sort of dilemmas.

    A dress that looks like it’s made of condoms or a dress that looks like you’ll need some condoms… I guess I have to take the slutty one.

    Cinderella all the way. I’d rather look like an 80s throwback than a cheap hooker.

    The slutty pink one! It would clash magnificently with my red-red hair and I would tease my hair super high so people would say, “God, Haley’s f-ing hilarious.” It’d be awesome.

    I would wear the blue one. Maybe someone missed the memo, but proms arent really a good place to see fashion or good dress choices. Despite its ridiculousness, the blue dress would look cool beside the trashy dresses other high school girls wear

    I’d go for the slutty pink option, at least I might get some attention for my body looking good rather than being covered up in a load of blue vomit. Neither are a good look! But if I can’t choose die it would have to be the barbie gown and pretend I’d gone for the plastic mattel theme.

    I almost like the blue one, after the initial vomit-inducing repulsion subsides. Besides, who doesn’t want to be a Princess at least a little bit!

    0.0 I would like to pick the blue one. But the shoulder puffs would be kind of… yeah. Unfixable. Rainow glitter fabric on the other hand…. I despise it, with all of who I am. I would have to choose the rainbow sparkles thing. I’m underweight and semi-flat chested. Toss on an elaborate girdle over the lovehandle part, since that doesn’t look on anyone since abs wouldn’t even show in it. I would consider a bag over my head optional, or a trendy sequined noose.

    pink with a black portrait style top on underneath (so it’s not “covering it up”), and a really frilly black skirt, you know, with lace/ruffles (again, so it’s not “covering it up” yet it makes it modest.

    Shiny Cinderella!
    At least I could justify, “Hey, the 80’s are totally in right now!”
