Never before has a fashion faux pas been applauded like the ugly holiday sweater. 

Every December, partygoers search for the gaudiest, tackiest and most festive knitwear they can get their hands on, hoping to win a prize or just get a laugh out of friends.

The Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership is hosting the ultimate ugly sweater soiree Tuesday as a part of the 23 Days of Flatiron Cheer festival.

Simply show up at the intersection of Broadway, Fifth Avenue and 23rd Street in Manhattan between 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. dressed in your worst and wait your turn to strut the catwalk in the not-so-fashionable fashion show, or reserve a spot in advance by emailing uglysweater@flatironBID.org.

The person in the ugliest sweater of all will win a two-night stay at the Mave Hotel, a $100 gift card to O'Live Organic Spa and a $100 gift card to Green Square Tavern.
