Tweak it until you love it. For an event like prom, you want to LOVE your dress. Add a bold ribbon to define the waist. Add some tiny silk flowers around the bodice. Add a lacy trim to the hem. Until you feel like a total diva in it, you're dress just isn't prom-ready. Just be sure not your SURE before adding anything permenant... a plain prom dress is better than a ruined one.

In Iceland we don't have prom so I really just don't get the big deal

I think the dress is good like it is... I like more simple clothes
I think the dress would be too much if you add something, maybe put on jewelry that maches? pearls tight to your neck? bracelet?

Standout jewelery sounds good and I think to make it really fresh, a wide ribbon around the bodice tied in a gorgeous bow would be lovely.

A wide ribbon with a bow sound good. It's a great idea

I agree that you should add a ribbon or bow. Beading or lace would probably look too "bridal" on that dress.

Maybe not a bow around the waist... maybe where you have the dress being cinched at the side to reveal the tulle underneath.. you could add some trailing satin ribbons there, but long ribbons, not short and fringe-like..(maybe in some fun contrasting colors, maybe just one soft color, depending on your tastes)
I dunno.. adding a bow around the waist seems too expected.

Why'd you chop your head out of that pic? :-P

Safety, perhaps.

I am also one of the people who thought it looks good just the way it is. However, if you are intent on change it somehow, Maybe some ribbon roses on the bottom of the red speckled with sequins to bring the focus there. However, if you are short, you might want to have the ribbon roses on the bodice of the dress. Then you can wear roses in your hair too.

Real flowers would be very nice with a few ribbons... would look very vintage.. or at least .. I thinkit would.
