WOULD YOU LET YOUR DAUGHTER WEAR THIS PROM DRESS?
New York Post ^ | January 24, 2005 | DANICA LO

Posted on 01/24/2005 8:32:44 PM PST by MisterRepublican

PROM princess or porn queen?

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."

In fact, some shops in smaller cities require girls to bring in parental permission slips to buy the dress, Yeh told The Post.

At Elite Designs, a formal shop in Midtown that has the barely-there gown on a mannequin, owner Surinder Nagpal says, "We've gotten a few calls about that dress. Originally, I wasn't going to stock [it], but my sales associate told me that girls would want it, so we're stocking it in black and red."

So far, says Helen Rodriguez, Nagpal's sales associate, no one has bought the $495 gown - but it just arrived.

$495.00??? Talk about a mark-up, hell if the model came with it, it still less than $100.00 on any darkened street corner.

Good grief. My hubbyjust wondered when purple pubic hair would be coming in as a new trend for the fashionable teen.

Personally if this dress appeared at any store in my city, I would lead the boycott.

NO!

Unless I can get 60% of the profits. Otherwise, she would be required to pay room and board in the future.

Joking...well, kinda...
