FASHION OR SCANDALOUS?

Nicki Minaj (below) appeared on the Ellen show earlier this week in a very revealing number. Breast on show! I literally paused for a moment and asked myself is this in the name of Fashion or attention? Has me really confused. There’s been a number of similar cases with other celebs that has also left me confused below…

Personally I think it works for editorial purposes and I would appreciate this outfit more if she was wearing it on the cover of a magazine. We’re looking at it in a different context that way. I just feel revealing so much on national, daytime TV is irresponsible. You have little girls watching and potentially interpreting this the wrong way….

Miley Cyrus is another one, although this is a performance outfit and could be considered as “art” or Miley “creatively expressing herself”, she is still literally naked on TV…

Rihanna we’ve seen display her racks on a few occasions. She is a self proclaimed rebel, so to me this is more a less a statement or a reminder of that. Right? Wrong? Fashion? I’m still confused.

Sharon Stone after her performance in the movie Basic Instincts considered a sex symbol, does that justify or make this acceptable?

And don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying its wrong just because I personally wouldn’t reveal this much. I’m just exploring this “trend”. Keri Hilson in a sheer number…. your thoughts?

Looking back on looks like this you might think; iconic, reminds us of and represents hip hop in the 90’s. Which is true.Sex sells, sex sold and sex is selling.

Does that mean 10 years from now we’ll look back on pics like this and also say its iconic and represents hip hop at that time? I’m just wondering…

I’m also wondering about the future of sheer clothing and if at all the no bra concept some of these celebs are displaying will be adopted by society and ever deemed acceptable. Just something to think about…

    Really like the post and I completely agree. Especially with the line of sex sell sold and is selling but some celebrities are over doing it just gets tiring at some point

      By tiring I’m guessing you mean boring too… Because once we’ve seen it all what next? Right?
