The Duck Dynasty crew is making the world a more fashionable place to live, as sixteen-year-old Sadie Robertson (daughter of Willie and Korie Robertson) launches her line of Daddy-approved prom dresses. Cue the jealousy of teenage girls everywhere. Plus, she walked her own runway.
Following the footsteps of her aunt, Missy Robertson, Sadie’s line, Live Original by Sherri Hill, is equal parts modest and stylish. The dresses have a sense of the country charm seen in Missy Robertson for Southern Fashion House, with a wide range of styles from tea-length to princess-y ball gowns, meaning there’s a style for every teenager. See all of the styles here.
Funny enough, I was recently browsing the prom-dress selection with my friend, and we were both quite shocked at how, ahem, mature the dresses seemed. The dresses were slinky—many with deep v-necks, thigh slits, and open backs—or they were so short they’d barely cover your ass. When I graduated, we had to make allowances in our “grand march” for how poofy the dresses were! I'm talking layers and layers and layers of tulle. SO MUCH TULLE.
I think it’s fantastic that the two Robertson gals are promoting modest clothing! Even more fantastic? Sadie Robertson teamed up with her dress designer, Sherri Hill, to donate more than 400 prom dresses to teens in military families.
But, what do you think? Would you want to see your teenage girl go to prom in one of the Live Original styles? Tell me in the comments below!
