Go now and look at this prom dress, featured prominently in the Prom magazines out now.
This prom dress is so skimpy, even the designer's CEO wouldn't let his teenage daughter wear it. But the dangerously revealing gown, prominently advertised in Seventeen Prom, YM Prom and Teen Prom, and on sale in a Midtown shop, is a top seller for the company this season.
"I was shocked when I first saw it, but now it's one of our top 20 dresses nationwide," says Nick Yeh, the CEO of Xcite, the Stafford, Texas, company that designed the dress and some 200 other styles this season. "I have a 15-year-old daughter and, no, I would not recommend she wear this dress. As a businessman," he adds, "I'm not judging what a teenager should wear or not wear. It's up to the parents to decide for their own children."
Zteen's take: "That's inappropriate!"
PapaC's take: "I've seen hookers dressed better than that."
What mother allows her child to walk out of the door dressed like this?
And as Charlotte Allen over at The Independent Women's Forum asked, "Where do you pin the corsage?"
Just go nekkid sweetie. Save the $495.
