    Ooh it's beautiful A tall figure would look so nice in that. I wouldn't try it because I'm short.
    And thank you, I found my prom dress on Asos =D

    the dress looks really nice, might have to be careful what underwear you wear, however get it, wear some bangles with it should go with it

    It's definitely up to you, although personally I really really don't like the whole intense silver foil vibe.
    If you want to find something really different, you could have a go at designing your own? http://www.styleshake.com/default.aspx is pretty cool, you can really play around with ideas and it's fairly cheap, too.

    Hi all


    What do you think? Please, feel free to be brutally honest! I have to say, I think it's pretty stunning... But maybe loads of people would have it already? It's not a bad price for that type of dress (i've got a friend who paid £350 for hers :eek: ) and I know ASOS is a popular site.

    Thanks a lot in advance! :p:
    That is really nice, has a good contrast of shiny-esque material to plain so it works. I like it.

    And Welcome to TSR :wavey:

    I think you'll need to be stick thin to avoid looking like a turkey wrapped up in tinfoil...

    Its nice but make sure if you get it try it on and make sure it flows off you and doesn't cling. Otherwise, as hannahradford rightly said you will look like a turkey wrapped in tin foil!

    Accessories to the bare minimum maybe some dangly diamondesque earrings and a bangle. Some nice heels/sandals and a clutch bag (preferably black).

    When I zoomed it its actually mini sequins at the bustline which is pretty...make sure it looks flattering or send it back.

    It doesnt hurt to be daring once in a while.

    I think it's gorgeous!! (on the model, anyway )
    as already told, you have to be pretty confident to wear it and I wouldn't recommend any jewellery at all... what's your haircolor?

    ... It looks like those space blanket things.

    It's nice in theory, the shiny material is just a bit vile though. If you think you can wear it and have the confidence to carry it off, then go for it.

    I don't like it Despite its length, I don't think it looks very formal, and it's just a bit BAM! in your face... sorry :/

    You can make a statement without it being OTT. I think it would look strange, sorry.

    I wore http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/img-thin...e=l&tid=394243 that dress to my prom, it was slightly different but not too OTT.

    I'm torn between thinking it's absolutely stunning to it's really cheap and tacky looking.

    It looks nice in the image on that particular model and it definitely is different but on the video, it doesn't seem to move well, looks kinda strange actually. I love the shape of it though

    I'm not sure. I love the style, not so keen on the silver bit cos there is just too much of it. If I had to get something floor length I would rather get something that was quite fitted on top and flattering at the bottom.. maybe similar to this http://www.asos.com/Coast/Coast-Tige...t=-1&clr=Black although that is a little boring. I do like the style of yours better, but I think it could look very unflattering with the massive silver part and considering you aren't 6ft tall.. I dunno, it's the kind of thing I would rather try on. If you have your heart set on it try it on in a shop with heels you plan on wearing or of a similar height to the ones you plan on buying just to see how easy it is to walk in and how it looks. Good luck!

    Thanks for all the replies, folks!

    Positive and negative, it's all helpful

    (oh, and since one or two people have asked, I've got long reddish/auburn hair)

    I think I'll go ahead and order it. I'd like to try it on, anyway, and it's free return - so I don't lose anything by giving it a go! I've a few weeks left, so it's not a big deal if I don't like it on me.
