No, you're wrong. Everything does I think the winners are the three girls in the tight metallic monstrosities with makeup and hair to match.

Second place goes to the girl in the pink and black shorts + dress with a train thing that is not only very tight, but looks like it would make a great commercial for PETA. Whatever happened to classy clothing? Oh, I know, I've gotten old.

I had a floor-length, royal blue satin dress with puffed sleeves and a bow. I do not look good in blue either, something I didn't know back then.

Nope. You put it out there, it's going to be made fun of.

Mostly I just feel sad when I see a lot of girls in their prom dresses, and the young wives at military balls I attend. A lot of them wear LBD's (little black dresses). The way I see it - you only get so many chances in life to wear a over-the-top floor length gown....

If I could have found an article on that, I would have posted it as well.


Gawd bless these bean counters.

1. The getups were hilarious and the kids are strangers to us.

2. It wasn't a slideshow...it was all on one page!

Some of those scanty ones should not be allowed as per school dress code.

Ellen has showed her hideous dress on her show.
Yep, I've seen that one before, too.

I think we laugh because we've all been there. Well, I never went to a prom, but you know what I mean.

Yeah... I've been a bridesmaid.

It's like a rite of passage to wear a dress like that -- and they are also so very fashionable-ish, and trendy those go out of style and get funny....

I would not allow my daughter to wear the super sexy ones. Honestly, do these girls have parents?

Oh, yes -- and there is always a work around them. My mother allowed light make up when I was 14, but another friend's parents said no way. So, she got to school early, made up her face, and before catching the bus, washed it off...and trust me -- she coated it on with a trowel. Her parents never knew, and when she was allowed to start wearing make up, was corrected in her application.

Other friends wore the forbidden clothing, much the same way... took it to school in their gym bags and changed there....

Ditto, I don't see anything wrong with these. In fact the green one with the 2 dates was a pretty popular style in the mid-80s.

The gum wrapper one reminded me of a contest a local radio station held last year for seniors. They had girls make prom dresses out of origami paper, the winner got a dress, limo, and dinner for prom as well as 10 grand for college.
