Where are the PR judges when you need them? "the dress was white, gauzy, and light, adorned with one long stream of green and blue tulle running along the right side. The bottom fell in such a way that it looked like a cloud, and its empire waist added a level of virtue and grace to the gown." (Kiera Cass, 2013) And from the corner to which Nina Garcia has relegated Zach Posen, we hear: "I just don't think the empire waist goes with a tulle bottom. I sell a lot of gowns and prom dresses, and this shape does not appeal to customers."
