Absolutely, have you seen some of the dresses worn to Prom where they clearly do not have a dress code?

Ghetto Proms are the best. Seriously those kids don't look so bad. That's the way the people at my prom looked minus the dresses and suits to nba teams and fashion brands labels :lol:

However, the girl with the brown dress with only leaves covering up her nips, BIG MAMA, and the pregnant girl showing off her belly were so wrong though :eek: I would have loved the opportunity to :rofl: at them at the prom :D

If I were the parents of some of these people I might have an issue or two, but in principle I applaud the individualism,and support anyone who wants to tiff it up.

When I was in high school we all dressed alike - scanning through my old yearbooks today I realize there was very little room for individualism, personal expression or imagination. We all wore the same brands of jeans and sneakers, did our hair the same, shopped in the same stores, and basically did everything we could to fit in. Rather boring I think.

No. It's prom. It's not like people will be distracted from doing their school work.

As long as it doesn't violate any local nudity ordinances, what's the big deal?

^ I agree, as long as it's reasonably covering up the family jewels :D

prom codes existed when my kids were in high school - 14 years ago. To some extent it was to avoid gang wars at prom. In other instances it avoid indecent exposures - the kind that would result in misdemeanor charges. The faculty and others really didn't want to be fashion police, but they had to be.

Someone wore full-on bedlah to Prom?!?! (the bellydancing outfit) At least it looks well-made, which is more than I can say for some of those other outfits.

But yes there should be a prom dress code or you will have all kind of inappropriateness (http://cdn.sheknows.com/articles/2011/04/weird-prom-dresses_copy.jpg)
