Does Black Tie Still Mean Floor Length Dresses ?

Floor length, definitely. Although I think a very luxurious pants outfit might be fine depending on the occasion.

I'm so old school that when it says "informal" I still think that means suits and ties, because "casual" is an entirely different term.

Mid calf length, and right below the knee!!!!!

I am short, so long gowns make me look like Cinderella playing dress up!

Every Black Tie event I got to I get a black strapless dress that flows out, to the Kneee/calves...It looks cute on me!

Here's styles I have worn-

I think Black tie can be knee length, but white tie is gown. My parents always went to social events that had dress code so my mom made us learn all about it growing up. Just because you have to wear a dress to a formal event, doesn't mean you can't make a statement! I've worn a red gown before. Definetly only red gown in the room but gorgeous!

I've been to a few black tie events, and have always worn floor length, but I'm kinda tall so it looks good. I think it depends who's throwing the event and why. I've been to some that knee length was ok... Usually, though, more refined people tend to wear floor length at least here.
