Grammys 2013 Fashion Flashback: These Ladies Didn’t Get the Dress Code Memo
Leave it to musicians to make a lasting fashion impression.
And on music’s biggest night, there’s no better runway to showcase their outrageous taste than on the Grammys red carpet where nudity is the norm.
Jennifer Lopez set the tone for more skin and less dress in 2000 when she gave us all an eyeful of her famous assets in that exotic plunging sheer chiffon Versace frock. Toni Braxton followed her lead the next year in that barely-there Richard Tyler white dress held together by a mere two pieces of fabric.
So when the head honchos behind the Grammy Awards decided to class-up the show (translation: make it boring) with a dress code in 2013, there are a few well-known fashion statement-makers who put their high-heeled foot down about the rules governing their butts (and cracks), thongs, underboobs, sideboobs, breasts (including nipples), and overly exposed “puffy” areas… down there.
Actually, this is what the wardrobe advisory descriptively advised (warning: you may lol): “Please be sure that buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered. Thong type costumes are problematic. Please avoid exposing bare fleshy under curves of the buttocks and buttock crack. Bare sides or under curvature of the breasts is also problematic. Please avoid sheer see-through clothing that could possibly expose female breast nipples. Please be sure the genital region is adequately covered so that there is no visible ‘puffy’ bare skin exposure.”
Well, these A-list ladies weren’t about to cover up what their mamas (and personal trainers) gave them on the one night they’re expected to let loose and show it all off with pride.
