    TX - Skimpy Dress Gets Teen Cuffed, Taken From Prom

    According to Houston television station KHOU, an official stopped Marche Taylor from entering the ballroom at a Houston-area hotel. Taylor was told the dress violated the school dress code.

    "She shook her head, she was like you are not getting into this prom," Taylor told the television station. "We were arguing back and forth because I wanted to know why I can't get into my prom."

    Madison High School Principal Aubrey Taylor said the dress was inappropriate and violated the rules.

    I thought the dress was inappropriate as well, but that's the fat jealous lady in me talking.

    It's not like it's offensive in this day and age. She's got it, she was flaunting it, that's all.

    It was totally inappropriate.

    She knew it wasn't appropriate. I'd bet some colleges would frown on that gown too.

    Most public places would. It wasn't indecent exposure, though, so no law would prohibit it. I will admit it's tasteless, but she did look cute in it.

    It was very inappropriate... I don't blame the school from putting their collective foot down and saying no to this girl.

    That dress is over the top in my book, and I think it is very inappropriate.
    I wouldn't allow my daughter to wear that to her prom.

    Cute, but (IMO) not particularily classy, much as she held her head high. I guess I can be shallow and petty...

    I think the gown was a bit much but similar to other prom gowns I have seen over the past few years ...
    My only question is do they enforce this at all after school events .. like football games etc??
    Because I have been to plenty and typically in school dress code is not enforced at after school events...

    Does this school allow their band for example to raise money doing car washes and if so are the girls wearing bikini's as I so often see??
    Or even bikini tops with little shorts??

    If they are then it needs to be all or not enforced at after school events at all.

    I'm not sure I'd even put it in the 'dress' category.

    It is on the video at one of the two links. ETA: I don't know if this link will bring up the video or not, but try it. If not, it is part of the first article WR linked.

    That is exactly what I thought! I would not let my daughter wear this dress. I wouldn't even classify it AS a dress!
