* Many of the outfits in the "Parade of States/Nations" parts of the ''MissUSA'', ''MissTeenUSA'', and ''MissUniverse'' {{Beauty Contest}}s. Unfortunately also applies to child pageants, as can be seen in ''ToddlersAndTiaras''. Unfortunate in that the dresses are [[AgeInappropriateDress often skimpier than they should be]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/RuPaulsDragRace'' is a reality show where drag queens compete to show off their [[FunWithAcronyms Charisma, Uniqueness, Nerve, and Talent]], so naturally there are going to be some true stunners.


* ''DesigningWomen'' finds ways to fit in a few, like in a fantasy sequence in the final episode.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Westeros has a sharp feudal class distinction, so if you are a woman you are wearing either some dirty sweaty rags or a Pimped Out Dress. However it's the royal personages like Cersei Lannister, Daenerys Targaryen and Margaery Tyrell who wear the most pimped out dresses in [[UnlimitedWardrobe the most variety of styles]]. [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg And Sansa Stark]].

[[MyFriendsAndZoidberg And Sansa Stark]]. A notable example is the black dress adorned with feathers which Sansa wears to signify her switch to taking charge of her life after ''years'' of being and UnwittingPawn in the games of others. The effect is quite striking.


* ''Series/{{Dynasty}}'', especially when it came to shoulder pages, or anything that made the dresses sparkle.

* In the first TV version of ''Literature/AnneofGreenGables'', the dream of Anne’s heart is a dress “with puffed sleeves”. Thanks to Matthew, she gets her wish--over Marilla’s sneering protests.

* The {{Academy Award}}s. Oh, sure, the Emmys and Tonys have pretty dresses too, but what else is the point of the Red Carpet segment? Certainly not those little interviews. The Red Carpet is ''made'' for this trope.

* ''ElizabethR'' of course has several, worn by Elizabeth, or others. The first episode (when she's still a princess) notes that her dress with [[PrettyInMink ermine sleeves]] is her finest gown.

* The dresses on ''Series/StrictlyComeDancing'', and ballroom dancing in general are often like this. If it involves [[FluffyFasionFeathers feathers]], [[EverythingsBetterWithSparkles glitter and/or sequins]], and moderate frills (so the dress looks fancy but can still move), so much the better.
