Skimpy Prom Dress Lands Texas Teen In Cuffs

Marche Taylor is the Houston teen featured in the video. She wore a skimpy dress to her High School Prom held at the Sugar Land Marriott. She was stopped in the lobby and prevented from entering the dance on grounds that her dress violated school dress codes. She demanded an explanation, offered to cover up, and when refused demanded her money back. The police were called and now she's fast becoming viral video history.

There was a time when the dispute over improper clothes centered around the length at the knee. Those days are long gone. In this situation there are no winners. The school is not wrong. While Miss Taylor might have been trying to cause a stir can there be any doubt that this is the sort of outfit she's seen in music videos her entire life? With the amount of press she's been given it's only a matter of time before a rap artist makes her the subject of a song.
