The Lone Peak High School student attended the "Preference" dance (where the girls ask the guys) and was forced to don her winter jacket over her dress. Gabi Finlayson traveled to Paris with her mother and found the dress, which she thought was comparable to a gown worn by fashion icon Audrey Hepburn. But the school sure didn't think so.

Lone Park High School's dress code says, "Formals, backless dresses, and/or tops may not extend beyond the bottom of the shoulder blades. Girls' dresses and tops must have a 2" minimum strap on each shoulder. Shawls, boleros, and other shrugs are acceptable if worn over the dress at all times. Cleavage covered." And officials deemed Finlayson's to be wrong.

Finlayson said that about a total of 4 out of 1,200 students were told to cover up their dresses at the dance. "There were a lot of dresses that were very short, very tight, a lot more exposing or revealing than mine," she adds."Somehow my shoulders are sexualized. Like it's my responsibility to make sure the boys’ thoughts are not unclean."

The teen spoke with KUTV and showed off the dress. Take a look at the video below:
