- Writes the tipster who sent this in, "I mean I win right? The color? The fabric pooping in the back?!"
- From the tipster behind this image, "My coworker had to wear this dress in a wedding for one of her high school classmates. It looks suspiciously like a repurposed Ralph Lauren bed sheet."
- This didn't come with a caption. Nor does it need one.
We weren't joking on Monday: We really do have a Barneys gift card worth $500 for the person who emails the worst bridesmaid dress photo to firstname.lastname@example.org before midnight tomorrow. Above are a couple entries from early contestants, but there's still plenty of time to play and possibly win.
Some rules: First and foremost, this does not have to be a dress you've worn. Your friend could have worn it, your sister could have worn it, heck, you could have found it by Googling "worst bridesmaid dress." Just remember that originality counts—we're probably not going to give the prize to someone who sends us the first Google Image that comes up.
