The Ugliest Prom Dresses of All Time

The frilly, sparkly, fluffy, frightening dresses on this list are some of the ugliest prom gowns ever. Consider yourself warned. This is one of those “Don’t” fashion lists that you never, ever want to find yourself on. And honestly, many of these poor girl’s prom dates were likely horrified as well. Really, how do you find a corsage to match a Team Edward/Team Jacob ‘Twilight’ gown? Even the fashion-challenged Bella Swan wouldn’t be caught dead (or alive) in the ‘Twilight’ gown that graces this list.

Some of the ugliest prom gowns ever are also some of the most risque. Whether it’s a skimpy, belly-baring gown or one that barely covers the privates, these gowns are made to grab attention — and not the good kind of attention, either. One has to wonder what the parents of these lovely ladies were thinking, letting them go out dressed like that. And yes, it’s hard to imagine, but some of these horrible prom dresses can actually double as — gulp — wedding gowns.
