Now I don’t have a problem with the phrase, “If you got it, flaunt it,” however at what point is flaunting “it” just too much? Nowadays, it’s as if the stars are battling it out on the red carpet of who can show the most skin. When I have to question whether your wearing underwear or not, that is a problem! Ms. Kendall Jenner seems like she has been wearing a lot of questionable looks, especially since turning 18. She recently stepped out in this Fausto Puglisi gown that was a risque hipping baring dress that raised several eyebrows and left many by surprise. This would have been an even more sexier gown had the hip baring splits actually stopped mid thigh.
Earlier in the month, Rhianna aka “RiRi” wore this sheer see through gown by Adam Selam to the CFDA Fashion Awards in which she was honored for being a fashion icon. Although RiRi has always been pushing the envelop with her fashion, this outfit…or lack thereof is on a whole other level. From an artistic look, the Swarovski gown that used over 200,000 crystals is remarkable, but it either should have had built in slip or should just be worn in the bedroom.
Other celebrities who have been spotted wearing the trend include:
Rumer Willis, daughter of Bruce Willis, also turned a few heads when she wore this side cut out skirt by Franziska Fox to the ELLE 5th Annual Women in Music concert back in April.
Rapper Iggy Azalea wore this black gown crotch high splitting gown to the 2013 Amsterdam MTV Music Awards back in November. Her dress was by John Galliano and although she appears to not have any underwear on, she said it was taped and she wasn’t “that stupid.”
Jaime Alexander also went sheer in her Azzaro gown to her Thor: Dark World movie premiere also in November of 2013. She too claim she had something on that was like underwear and that she used toupee tape to keep it in place.
I don’t know, maybe it’s just me and I’m being over the top about this new “trend.” Don’t get me wrong, I like to show a little skin…appropriately. However, where do you draw the line? Especially once you start getting older, or become a mom you have to think about how it’s going to effect other people in your lives. When your a celebrity you instantly become a role model to someone somewhere. I’m not saying you should live your life based on other people thoughts, but you should live it respectively and honoring yourselves. Sooo not with this trend. What do you think?
