Grammy wardrobe memo: Do you think it will make a difference?

Posted by   + Show Post

So apparently, CBS wants Grammy attendees - specifically, female attendees - to tone down their wardrobe choices this year!

Quote:

Here are some of the highlights: Talent should, "avoid exposing bare fleshy under curves of the buttocks and buttock crack." What exactly is "fleshy under curves" and why does it sound so oddly hot? (And by frowning upon the showing of buttock cracks, does this mean that many of the union plumbers working at the Grammy venue may also have wardrobe problems?)

CBS wants attendees to avoid outfits that could "expose female breast nipples." And the network also put its foot down on clothes that expose the "bare sides" of breasts, aka, the famed and increasingly popular "sideboob."

What do you think about these guidelines? Will the stars comply? Or will they see this as a challenge to go MORE daring with their outfits? Is it a sexist move? Do you even care? :)

It's all directed towards how women dress. Trying to police women's bodies? What else is new?

I don't think they will comply... 

But geee some of those outfits are just completely trashy (showing way too much) and I have seen a couple that were similar but worse. 

I think these awards show girls "what's hot" and I believe that if these stars would dress a bit more conservatively.. Maybe girls would as well.. It's a nice thought anyway.

Eh, if they have no self respect then so be it.

As for it being sexist.. That's just digging the hole too deep for the situation. Guys show up at these awards most of the time with a black tuxedo..

IF a guy showed up showing as much skin as what some of the women show, I would say that they needed to say something to them as well.. But as I said.. Most of the time the men are appropriately covered.

I think, more than likely, there will be a handful of artists that go out of their way to be a shocking as possible because of that memo.

So no butt crack and no side boob...

Well I don't normally see crack but sideboob is always present. I doubt anyone will comply.

I think they are just trying to avoid nip slips and other wardrobe malfunctions that could cost the network a hefty fine.

It's the Grammys not the Oscars...



Quoting TheLadyAmalthea:

I think it is a network that is afraid of being fined by the FCC and hearing complaints from people. It is a privilage to go to the Grammys, not something that any regular Joe or Jane can go to. They should dress like it, not looking like street walkers. But that's just my opinion.
