Ugly Prom Dress Alert: Jovani and the dress of many colours

ugly-prom-dress-jovaniWe apologise for any burning caused to your retinas during viewing of this dress. We were still seeing the pattern a few hours after we looked away from it, so we feel your pain.

Nevertheless, we feel the existence of this dress teaches us all an important lesson about colour mixing and how not to do it. It could be summed up as “Orange and green should not be seen, without a….” Actually, no: they just shouldn’t be seen. Ever. Especially when they’re fluorescent orange and lime green.

If you disagree, however, this dress is $500 and you can buy it here.

    I’m kinda enjoying the brightness too. Might look better as a skirt or a Hawaiian shirt though.

    Do you think I could sue them for the damage caused by my crashing around the house bumping in to things because of the burns to my retinas from looking at the damn thing?

    I actually like the dress, not the colors. If they weren’t neon and had an actual design, I’d love it.
    However, the dress’ shape is lovely. I’d buy that if it wasn’t for those colors (and its price).

    Actually, I love this design. I’ve always loved colorful pieces, ever since the colorful shirts craze of the 90s, which I did prolong into the new millenium, much to the horror of some lovers of the colors black and grey.
    I wish colorful were the new black. No irony here, I really do.

    I’m with Michelle. The dress itself, is rather pretty. I like accenting my back, so give me that dress with a royal purple fabric? Sold. (Well, it would be if I had any occasion to wear the thing). But with this fabric, it just goes overboard. That fabric would be cute on a very simply cut sundress.

    I actually think it’s kind of pretty, but as a beach-party dress or something, definitely not as a prom dress!

    I agree…I love the style it just needs to be a different color! Or at least do a solid on the bottom and keep the print just on the top half.

    And $500 is NOT a lot of money for a prom dress…as ridiculous as it is, there are some girls who were at my prom wearing $800-$900 dresses. Mine were around $100 and I looked just as good as everyone else. Why on earth would you pay nearly $1000 for something you only wear once for a few hours? My sister paid less for her wedding dress than some of these girls pay for prom dresses! It’s crazy!
