Mullets may be popular in some parts of the country, but if it were up to Miranda Lambert, they'd be abolished to a dusty corner of the world where other fashion crimes like Skidz and Cavariccis lie, never to make a resurgence again. And I'm not talking about hair mullets here -- Miranda may like those, I really don't know -- I'm talking about mullet dresses. Particularly mullet wedding dresses.
Miranda makes a cameo on tonight's Say Yes to the Dress premiere when she's helping her Pistol Annies bandmate, Angaleena Presley, pick out a dress to tie the knot in. When Angaleena comes waltzing out in a mullet dress, Miranda is quick -- pistol quick! -- to shoot the gown down. She even goes as far as to call it a "zero."
For those of you who don't know what a "mullet dress" is, allow me to drop the sartorial knowledge: It's an asymmetrical hem; a dress that's shorter in the front than it is in the back. And, personally, I think they're fantastic.
Buuut, they're also super trendy right now. You can't throw a rock here in NYC without hitting a girl wearing one. So, not sure it'd be a good bet to wear a mullet wedding dress. Probably want to go with something a little more simple and timeless for your big day. Something you won't look back on and think, "Oh Gawd, what was I thinking?" Think Carolyn Besset, or Savannah Miller, Sienna's older sister. Just kidding. Don't think Savannah Miller. But I do love me a hooded wedding dress. Not an easy look to pull off, though. But I'm wed-digressing.
I think Miranda was smart to advise Angaleena to go in a different direction for her trip down the aisle. Sure, the dress is cute now. But they probably said that about Skidz once, too.
What are your thoughts on mullet dresses?
