    Default Prom dresses are going risqué this year

    Girls flock to trampy prom dresses this year.

    DIRTY DANCERS: Among the popular dresses this prom season are risqué numbers from designers La Femme, Boutique (below) and Panoply (above).

    Prom is going porn this year.

    The days of dressing like a lady are over -- with teens preferring to parade around at their first big dance looking more like strippers than schoolgirls.

    The hot trend is slutty chic -- with cleavage-revealing frocks, bellybutton-baring gowns and dresses made of barely enough fabric to make a washcloth.

    "I can't believe that mothers let high-school girls buy these dresses for prom," said one sales associate at Saks Fifth Avenue, embarrassed to be selling a collection of prom dresses that were more appropriate for the main stage at Scores than a high-school gym.



    Nathan Vaknin, manager of Fiesta Ladies Fashion, a dress store on Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn, said, "For prom this year, girls want short and poofy or long, tight-fitting, with everything cut out -- the sides are gone, the back is gone, the front is basically gone.

    "Personally, I think it's too much, but we sell whatever puts money in our pocket," he said.

    "The parents might say no at first, but I don't think anyone can convince these girls to get a dress besides the one they really want."



    At Saks, one of the most popular prom dresses this season is a $380 floor-length leopard print La Femme dress that is backless and practically frontless with a diamond cut out between the breasts.

    Girls are also coveting a Panoply dress with the sides cut out and a plunging neckline that sells for $370 on the Web.

    Perhaps the most shocking dress available this year is the Nadia, designed by Boutique. The stretch-satin dress -- whose front dips to just above the pubic bone -- retails online for $349.



    The city Department of Education doesn't impose a dress code for proms. It's up to each principal to make a judgment call about acceptable attire.

    At Christopher Columbus HS in The Bronx, Principal Lisa Maffei-Fuentes inspects every dress herself.



    "I check all of the dresses to make sure their body parts are covered," Maffei-Fuentes said. "They're not allowed to wear anything where their breasts are exposed. It can't be very short, and their rear ends can't be exposed."

    Maffei-Fuentes has the girls show her pictures of their dresses before the big day. On May 26, when the school will hold its prom, Maffei-Fuentes will be at the door to make sure no outfits are breaking her rules.

    "I watch them walk in," she said. "If they're wearing something inappropriate, I send them home or we fix the dress with pins, thread and needles."

    What is so wrong with parents teaching their daughters to have some class and self respect today? It disgusts me how quickly girls are growing up and skanking themselves out now (I'm only 24 and I sound like an old school marm).

    These aren't prom dresses, they're Hollywood award show, Vegas cocktail dresses.
    All you can do at life is play along and hope that sometimes you get it right.

    I looked up those designers and there are some truly skanky prom dresses that are best-sellers this year. A sampling:




    This one is THE top seller here.

    Also, none of those dresses are cute.

    I'd lock my daughter in the basement before I'd let her go to a prom dressed like that (except for the last dress - it actually covers some skin and is cute).

    I just can't believe some of the dresses that are out there. What happened to the idea of prom night being the one night when you could get all dressed up like a queen and wear a big, grand ball gown? that was always what it was about for me.

    I swear I've seen a hooker in Vegas wearing this one:



    This looks more like a babydoll negligee, not a prom dress:


    Its like a contest to see who can expose the most skin:



    :






    Totally backless, and a slit almost up to the crotch. So vile.

    So apparently Prom has turned into a Pimps and Hos ball.

    The one above literally looks like the woman had some kind of breakdown and went out in just her pantyhose. It also kind of reminds me of the scandalous Geena Davis Emmy outfit:

    Those are all so tacky I find it hard to believe anyone would even want to wear them.

    We weren't allowed to wear things like this to prom (or any high school dance, for that matter). They had a dress code and if you showed up wearing something really inappropriate they wouldn't let you in. Some of these might have gotten through, but anything that showed your midriff, butt crack, or was of the design where it's basically two strips of fabric styled like suspenders covering your nips and attached to a skirt, they'd kick your ass out.

    No kidding! I'm 27 (OK, I'm 29) and my mother would STILL kick my ass if I ever even THOUGHT about leaving the house in anything like that!

    Ugh, forget the revealing, I can't get over how FUG the fabrics are.
