Fug Night

Okay, who let Lil' Kim design a prom dress?

This is, apparently, an actual dress, made by a Texas company that has advertised it successfully in teen magazines like YM and Seventeen. And the model is not, apparently, wearing it backwards.

Now, I would maybe expect to see something like this on The O.C., just because if any show is likely to have a complete break with fashion reality, that is the one. But ... really? This guy has actually sold some of these. If I had come down the stairs in that thing, my father would have locked me inside the house, burned all my clothes, and replaced them with billowing muumuus -- if he was able to retain hold of his consciousness.

What is wrong with people? It's a school dance. Do you really want your geometry teacher to know the exact diameter of your breasts? Are you really that interested in rendering your English teacher speechless, or perhaps reducing him/her to speaking in tongues? Are you this hell-bent on becoming a stripper?

Sweet God. To quote my esteemed colleague Jessica, "I need to lie down."

This dress is terrifying. And probably illegal.

LOVE this blog! in fact, we love it so much, we blogrolled you. Come visit ours sometime.

I have just picked myself up off the floor.

If I had come down the stairs in this for prom my father would have just shot me to save the family years of embarrassment and no adult in their right mind would blame him.

So, are those supposed to be breast, under there? Good thing she doesn't have large nipples.

how is it even possible for something that slutty to be worn at a school function? i mean, aren't there rules against dressing like a baby hooker at a school formal?

ps- the fug blog is the greatest thing ever.

Are you this hell-bent on becoming a stripper?

*becoming* a stripper? Oh, honey. If you wear this to your school prom, you ARE a stripper.

Sad thing is that I know there are girls arguing this with their parents right now. "But mom, maybe if he can see all of my breasts in the dress, then he won't try and get them out of it!"

Anyone got a give on the physics of that thing? It looks like if the model takes a breath, everyone gets a free show, it's like training for "Girls Gone Wild!"

That photo looks retouched, like they had to erase traces of nipple very carefully. And weren't that careful.

"Now do I get that 'A', Mr. Kazinsky?"

This definitely calls for a wrist corsage.

I NEED to know the website where I can see more dresses like this. I go to Whore High.

Posted by: zoe | Jan 31, 2005 12:07:24 PM

Jennhi, you're right. In the area where the straps cover (for lack of a better word) the breasts, the dress looks all blurry and bent out of shape. My *dog* is better with Photoshop's clone stamp tool.
I've been reading this blog for a while now (always hilarious, and congrats on the new site), but this is the first time I've actually been offended enough to need to comment. God. Not even THE HAT could do that.
Sweet Mother of God. Just...no.

This dress screams "Hey 40-year-old-pervs-with-screennames-like -LUV2CDDLE-who-buy-you-frozen-yogurt-and-a-CD-then-bring- you-back-to-their-mom's-Kia-for-some-hugging... I AM RIGHT HERE."

Is it just me, or does that girl look kind like Christina Aguilera??

Posted by: shaunacat | Jan 31, 2005 12:23:23 PM

Actually that dress screams "Hey all you Moms who want to live out your slutty dreams through your daughters, why not buy her something that you would've looked really hot in 25 years and 80 pounds ago!"

Posted by: chriso | Jan 31, 2005 12:25:06 PM

it looks like the teenage model has already had some scary surgery done--those look like uneven half-moon scars and some scary lopsided boobs. either that or....really bad photoshopping.

Posted by: jessica | Jan 31, 2005 12:25:40 PM

Actually, it is on backwards.

See this picture for reference:


Granted, the front isn't that much better, but it is in fact on the model backwards in the picture you posted.

Posted by: Ali | Jan 31, 2005 12:29:48 PM

thank fucking god. why is the prom model wearing it backwards though?

Posted by: herkimer | Jan 31, 2005 12:33:57 PM

...geeeeet the fuck out!!

Posted by: lllolololololol | Jan 31, 2005 12:36:29 PM

I think this is a really great dress if we suddenly want thousands of 18 year old girls to go out and get drugged up and raped. Sa-weet. I remember when prom themes were "Enchanted Evening" or "Under the Sea" not "Show me dem titties"

Posted by: I Love a good FUG | Jan 31, 2005 12:37:29 PM

This has to be the most unacceptable dress posted here to date. It... I just... This "dress" makes me want to weep.

There should be a rule in the school handbook: "A dress will not be allowed if it requires the use of double-sided tape."

Posted by: CrankyBiscuit | Jan 31, 2005 12:41:38 PM

It's not on backwards. Take a look at the dressmaker's site:

If only they made it in lime green. Sigh.

Posted by: zoe | Jan 31, 2005 12:45:10 PM


This is a much better picture.

Posted by: zoe | Jan 31, 2005 12:46:25 PM

I don't think it is backwards... the black-dress model is sort of facing sideways while the red-dress model is (unfortunately) facing straight at us, so you can't see if those side-panelly things are there or not.

This dress makes me sad and frightened.

Posted by: Karen | Jan 31, 2005 12:48:00 PM

Good Lord. If I'd attempted to wear that to my prom--no, if I'd so much as joked about wearing that--I'd STILL be locked in my childhood bedroom today, ten years later. People would be asking about me, and my parents would be like, "Oh, she's still in her room, thank you very much. The prom dress?"

Posted by: panda | Jan 31, 2005 12:48:01 PM

Whether worn correctly or backwards this is one ugly ass dress. The only prom for which would be acceptable is the one held by a stripper academy.
