Ugly Wedding Dress of the Day

because some brides just have bad taste

Press conference with Reem Acra representative. 17 October 2006

Reem Acra 001New this season from esteemed designer Reem Acra… Sloppy Sailor/Schoolgirl Chic!

Forget all those other wedding dresses that are actually attractive — gowns that make you look pretty and feminine — because the Very Latest in wedding fashion is rumpled and androgynous. Just look at the mannish collar of this dress, accompanied by a stylish tie more flaccid than Bob Dole’s pre-Viagra penis. From the waist up, this dress looks like something a gay sailor might have worn in the 1980s. Can you say HOT couture? (Get it? “Hot” instead of “haute”…GET IT?!?)

Granted, we here at Reem Acra made some concessions from the waist down with a traditional long skirt with a hint of embrodiery. And yeah, we’ve been getting some compliments on that part of the dress, and even a few queries about the mental stability of the designer regarding the dichotomy (for your information, no, Ms. Acra does not have a “bad case of dissociative identity disorder, but she thanks you for your interest in her mental wellbeing). 

What these critics don’t understand is that the contrast is what makes the dress! Do you know how difficult it is to design wedding dresses year in and year out? It’s like, white gown, silk and satin and lace, long train…it’s enough to make a designer want to “throw in the tulle!” (GET IT?) Who in this day and age of zillions of wedding gowns would get all worked up about a simple embroidered skirt … unless, of course, it was paired with a fugly — I mean, unique — top?? Do you understand now?!? I mean–

…Um, yes? Ms. Acra wants to see me now? In her office?

Well, I have to run. But thank you all for coming to this little conference. We hope to see you next season when Ms. Acra unveils her Safari-Scuba-Diver Collection.

    Oh. My. Lord.

    That’s hideous. Just awful. They should be ashamed of themselves.

    I was sweating just looking at those horrendous sleeves. And I think I just threw up a little, in my mouth. :C

    I Like it, Im in the Navy an I can only find male dress uniform for wedding. But the groom is not in the navy

    “For I’m called Little Buttercup, dear Little Buttercup,
    Though I could never tell why,
    But still I’m called Buttercup, poor little Buttercup,
    Sweet Little Buttercup, I!”

    It’s not hideous, it’s a tribute to Gilbert & Sullivan!

    Though, why anyone would want to pay tribute to them on one’s wedding day I can never tell why!

    i don’t know what to say but i think that it is some thing good and has a new idea

  6. Fiona Says:

    At least its away from the norm , bandeau style , drop swirl waist, oh how boring.
    I’m am so tired of seeing girls in badly fitted strapless dresses, its just tragic

  7. Haley Says:

    i love dresses that are DIFFERENT but this one is to different.
    i bet this designer has nice styles this just isn’t one of them

  8. Jeka Babull Says:

    I think this dress is fab, way better then the bridal strapless uniform. I actually had puffy sleeves, and have never regretted it.
