Outfits That Got Kids Kicked Out of Prom
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.

The Tuxedo (Instead Of A Dress)Video: YouTube
Aniya Wolf, a student at Bishop McDevitt High in Harrisburg, PA, was denied admittance to the prom simply because she wore a tux instead of a dress. "A lot of girls’ dresses,” Wolf said, “I mean I’m not saying that all of them are this way, but they do show a lot of skin. I think I’m dressed pretty modestly.”
There's good news for this teen after all: although she didn't get to attend her prom, she'll reportedly be guest starring on an episode of It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, where she'll be wearing her tux.

This Dress That Was 'Too Revealing'Photo: Facebook
Amy, a senior at Maryville High School in Tennessee, was denied admittance because her dress was "revealing." Tiffani Taylor, a friend of Amy's, posted on her Facebook page about the incident:
After spending some time in the restroom crying, she was told she could go in if she wore the vice principal's tux jacket, which mind you, did not cover her chest. She was told by a teacher repeatedly, 'Us big girls gotta cover up.' This young girl was SHAMED... Her excitement during this memorable time of her life turned into embarrassment at the hands of adults who are supposed to be leading her. SHAME on YOU, Maryville. I think you look amazing, Amy.

This Dress That Showed 'Too Much Cleavage'Video: YouTube
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.'"
