Outfits That Got Kids Kicked Out of Prom

List RulesVote up the outfits that you think were the most harmless, despite keeping these kids from attending their proms.

This list of outfits that got kids kicked out of prom will definitely surprise you, and not because the looks are scandalous. You may have heard of Aniya Wolf, the student from Bishop McDevitt High School who was banned from her prom for wearing a tux instead of a dress. But girls wearing tuxes to prom is just the beginning.

Can you guess why 16-year-old David Leix was denied entry into his prom? His family heirloom kilt, passed down to him by his late grandfather, was the culprit. David was accused of wearing a "dress-like" outfit by a volunteer who denied him entrance, then had to wait two hours outside of prom while a friend's parent brought him a change of pants.  

Then, there's Brittany Minder, who was denied access to her prom because of inappropriate cleavage when she was actually appropriately covered. She just had a different body type than average, and school officials couldn't handle it. And what outfit did Shafer Rupard wear that got her kicked out of prom? Simply a pair of red pants. Then, there's Gabi Finalyson, who was accused of violating her school's modesty dress code, even though she had her dress specially altered just so she could meet the school's requirements. 

Check out these outfits that were banned from prom, and vote up the most unjust prom outfit scandals.

    This Dress That Showed 'Too Much Cleavage'

    Brittany Minder was denied entrance to her prom at Central Kitsap High School in Washington because of this dress. So what, exactly, was wrong with it? The school's dress code states that strapless dresses are allowed as long as cleavage, midriff, and the lower back covered, and Brittany felt like she was targeted simply because she had a bigger chest.

    The Dress That Was 'Immodest'

    The Utah high schooler's dress was deemed immodest after it supposedly violated the school's dress code. The code stated: "hemlines should go no higher than the middle of your thigh while sitting down."

    Yet, student Tayler Gillespie, who was denied entrance to prom, had a different take. "I was bawling my eyes out," she told KSTU, adding that nobody ever checked to see where her hemline fell when she sat down. "They just took a wild guess and said, 'You're not admitted in.'"

    After a few chaperoning dads called attention to this teen's apparently too-short dress, the school officials told Claire Ettinger of Richmond, Virginia that she had to leave the prom because her dress was "too sexy." She wrote a scathing blog post about the incident and posted it on the school's Facebook page.

    The Dress That Showed 'Too Much Knee'

    This 17-year-old was asked to leave prom because her dress fell above the knee, violating the school's dress code. She attended Townsend Harris, an elite Queens high school, and asked for her name not to be used. “Other people wouldn’t have gotten in trouble with the dress, but my dean doesn’t like me and targets me along with a couple of other girls,” she told The Post.

    Her mother remarked about her daughter's treatment: “You would think she’s a... criminal, but she has a 95 average.”
