When we first laid eyes on this dress, we thought it wasn’t quite as bad as some of the ugly prom dresses in our archive. Then we read the description and realised that those are feathers on the skirt – or they’re supposed to be feathers, anyway: the picture is a little too small to tell whether they’re real or not.
This realisation made us look at the dress in a whole new light. Suddenly we’re seeing, not just a frou-frou, frilly little prom dress, but some strange species of bird, strutting and pecking its way around the prom, and shaking its feathered tail. Suddenly we’re feeling a little ill.
And are we imagining things, or is the model sticking her tounge out at us?
