    I get tired of our whole world being sexualized so I'm okay with it.

    Good. Our school enforces a dress code at our prom as well. we have posters up around January with pictures of acceptable and unacceptable dresses. When the kids buy tickets, we make them sign a list of rules, including what type of dress they can wear, and they know that if they are not wearing appropriate attire, they will be denied access to prom and will NOT be given a refund.

    Not appropriate and I think she got just the reaction she was seeking.

    Our school is probably a little old fashioned, but the girls must get their dresses approved before they are allowed to wear them. Some are still a little skimpy, but nothing like that. I don't blame them for not letting her in, and from the way the article reads, the police came because of her actions after they refused to let her in, not the school's fault.

    My biggest concern is not the dress itself, but the parent that allowed her out of the house like that.

    Christy, my former school has an approval policy, too, and they are in a school with the same demographics as the one in the story. Maybe it's not old-fashioned, but just good sense! :lol:

    I agree with escmom that she got *exactly* the response she was wanting.

    OMG! Did she seriously think that dress was going to be let in? By the end of the first song something would have popped out the top or the bottom. :p

    On the consent form shown briefly in the video it says 'Prom attire will be checked upon entrance'... Stupid girl, stupid stupid girl.

    I agree, cmw. Did she honestly think she would be allowed in wearing that?!? You can't call that a dress! :eek:

    I know she probably paid a lot for that dress especially considering the amount of material in it. Our girls complain because they cannot wear a backless dress!!

    I'd call it a ribbon!!!:eek:


    I went prom dress shopping Friday with my daughter. There weren't
    that many appropriate styles- - or rather, what I would call appropriate and the costs!!!??!!:eek: Because most prom goers had already been shopping they were pretty much picked clean by Friday, but we did find a beautiful blue gown. Since it was late in the season we got a rockin price!! It was marked from over 200 down to 79!!!

    How sad. Not so much that she wore it, but that our girls dress this way. Never do we see our boys in such questionable outfits.

    Either way I still think the duct dress/tux takes TALENT and patience. That wing design alone is amazing. Now I might just go look and see some other examples. I'm not sure I would have wanted to wear it but it was amazing nonetheless.

    I agree - the tux and dress look very very well made. The duct tape girl kind of reminds me of Pretty In Pink - Molly Ringwald...

    I'm glad they didn't let her in. Honestly, she probably wouldn't have been escorted out in handcuffs if she had simply left instead of making a scene. It's sad that she would even think she could get away with that.

    I'm wondering where are the adults (parents/grandparents) who said "oh yeah that dress is fine!" I mean geesh... she may have thought it looked good but where are the other people in her life that could have said NO WAY!!!

    Agree with Becky...the handcuffs were a little much....Maybe a nice accessory!!! LOL!!!

    I once saw a picture of a girl dressed that little for Prom, except she also had a bulging belly from a third trimester pregnancy. Oy...

    You know, this is at the heart of one adolescent behavior that drives me nuts. It's the "what'd I do?" scenario. Yes, she knew what would happen, and probably was hoping for it. She reminds me of one of my beautiful, intelligent, thoughtful seniors who find it fashionable to pretend that they've turned their brains off. There are so many better ways to get attention!

    I don't even like the way kids dress at the mall, forget about near-nothing prom dresses. It's a crazy world.

    That is inappropriate on so many levels. i agree with the question. What do she think would be the result? Half naked may work in music videos but she should have known the difference between that and a dignified event.
