Oh, Melissa. What have they done to you?
Not only would this not have been our choice for the win, we considered it the worst out of the three.
We’ll grant you that a design challenge like this means you can pretty much throw everything out the window and do whatever you want, but this is not only ugly, it’s ridiculously dated.
This is straight out of the 1984 playbook. Pure “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.” Is there anything more cliched than a fauxhawk and fishnets? This doesn’t look “rocker” to us; it looks “poser.”
In fact, it looks like a Halloween costume. Like what a 16-year-old would put together for an ’80s theme party. She looks like she shredded an old prom dress and then raided her father’s tie rack for accessories, which, if you’re Molly Ringwald in a John Hughes film, would be considered spunky and cute, but in 2004 it just looked tired and done.
