…don’t wear this to Prom.
Year: Far Too Recent
Promtacular! is not about being snarky. It is about celebrating our prom fashions as they deserve to be celebrated: in all their sequined, pouffy splendor. And I am certain, absolutely certain, that in another 10, maybe 15 years this will be more laughable than it is now.
This photo was originally featured on Dlisted. Because, if you couldn’t tell (perhaps because you hadn’t even noticed this lovely young lady has a head), this is American Idol’s favorite “minks,” Kellie Pickler.
And if her dress doesn’t say destined for stardom, well. It says something.
It was awfully kind of the dressmaker to build the thong straps right in, so Kellie didn’t have to bother with underwear at all. Plus the dress is sparkly! And comes with a wrap, which practically makes the whole ensemble elegant.
Especially as her jewelry is so understated. Think how gaudy this would have been if her dangling belly button ring had been longer.
She really dodged a bullet there.
*Ed note: Just because WE try not to be too snarky doesn’t mean YOU can’t be.
