The votes have been tallied, the sweaters tucked back into their closets, and now one of our very lucky Ugly Sweater contestants is getting a very special Christmas present. The ugliest sweater of them all was earned by bravery and lack of shame at the annual Ugly Holiday Sweater Party at the Southwest Porch. Then chosen by the public in a popular vote. Piaget takes home the 2012 prize with her wonderfully hideous Santa sweater.
Piaget went above and beyond to adorn her festive attire with some over-the-top garnishes. Notice the custom embellishments - sparkly wristband garlands, light-up icicle necklace, and a stuffed reindeer perched on her shoulder. All of these details have won her the title of Ugliest Sweater of 2012, as well as a pair of roundtrip tickets on Southwest Airlines.
Happy Holidays from Southwest Airlines, 'wichcraft and Bryant Park!
Take a look back at our 2011 winner Linda.
