So why do the American and European gypsies dress so gaudy and tacky for their special occasions? Gypsy dressmaker Sondra Celli puts it simply, "It's a competitive and materialistic culture. Whoever has the most rhinestones wins."

According to TLC, the #1 Gypsy dressmaker, Celli, has seen everything in her attempts to make every Gypsy girl's dream come true. Every Gypsy wants the biggest, most sparkly, beautiful dress in an attempt to outshine one another..

Additionally, the Romanichal Gypsies marry at quite a young age, which explains why some of their choices look like prom dresses.
