Have High-Fashion Runway Shows Turned into Peep Shows?

Just recently, I saw an article about how yesterday?s Dior Runway Show in Paris ended with a peek of 19 year old model, Karlie Kloss?s bare-naked butt. Here?s the photo to prove it:

I mean, it?s a beautiful sheer skirt and I see that the point is to show what?s underneath but why can?t they sew in a panty to match the dress like they do in ballroom dance competition dresses?

We condemn Lindsey Lohan and other celebs for showing their stuff for the world to see yet we allow models to walk down the runway showing their boobs and butts like it?s nothing? No one in their right mind should be walking around in public like that so why would you model a dress in that way? What happened to showing how undergarments can enhance and flatter the shape of an outfit? You don?t want everything to hang loose underneath; that is so NOT flattering or fashionable even if you have a model body. Come on now.

I?ve seen this nakedness on the runway plenty of times, usually with the models being braless under sheer tops. Here are some examples:

Wow, Kate Moss spotted flaunting her nipples in public while holding her daughter?s hand:

The whole point is to show how sheer tops can be worn in many different ways to be stylish and sexy by showing a little skin but not ALL of it. You can wear a simple tank underneath and let the arms and shoulders be the revealed part or wear a bandeau top underneath to go for a beach sexy look and show some tummy. Showing off your nipples is going just a bit too far. Just a bit.

Rose Petals for Boobs?

You know it?s bad when there?s gathered fabric that resembles rose petals right on your boobs and you STILL look flat as a pancake.

And why would you want people staring at your twins all night?

I must say, if that material wasn?t there, the dress would have been gorgeous on her. Because honestly, I like the dress, the mauve shade, and the trumpet  style gown. Also, the red lips just don?t go with this look. Nude lips or a light pink would have suited this better.

A big trend I noticed on the Red Carpet at the 2010 Oscars was nude/gray dresses with super pale skin and platinum blonde hair.

I?m down with the Anne Hathaway look: dark brown locks with red lips and pale skin, but with light hair, skin, and a nude dress?you?re almost a ghost.

Amanda Seyfried, is your hair GRAY?

You?re such a pretty girl, why must you make yourself look 40 years older than you really are? You?re hair can?t match your dress! This does nothing for her. Moving on?

Demi, girl, you look HOT! 47? There?s no way you?re nearing 50.

She looks absolutely gorgeous in this bronze dress, with a lil tan herself, and the sexy piece of hair in front of her face. Ashton, you?re a lucky man! She looks younger now than she did back in the day with short hair, (i.e., Ghost).

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are closer in age than Demi and Ashton but look how style can totally make it seem otherwise. You really can control how old or young you look!

This dress is so unflattering to her shape, it makes her look heavy and way older than she is. Not even a 60 something year old would wear this dress, see below.

I definitely want to look like this at 64. The whole ensemble is age appropriate but still has a young and sexy feel to it. Helen Mirren deserves a lot of credit for looking so good.

Another cougar! Jane Seymour is just radiant in this dress..hot hot hot! Her hair, everything..A+ in my book.

Miley looks STUNNING but for some reason I think she also is trying to look older. Ah well, still looks great. Love her hair and earrings.

The Queen..honestly, doesn?t she always look fabulous? She never fails to amaze me. I have nothing bad to say. =)

As for the men, they all looked great. I don?t believe any of them went for anything too crazy or wild. The only difference between any of them was whether they wore a bowtie or a tie. Haha. The bowtie trend is definitely big right now. We?ll use Jake Gyllenhaal to represent the men.

Handsome in his Burberry tuxedo!

Let?s throw Zac Efron in there too, for the ?tie? boys. Plus, I love his messy, spiky hair.

Gaga Carried onto the Grammys 2011 Red Carpet In an Egg

Sorry I have been gone for awhile. I completely missed the Grammys. But hear me out! I just moved to South Florida for a job a few months ago and I also just moved into an apartment. Everything is new and exciting right now, as well as super busy, and I didn?t get internet in my apartment until this week. Or cable. Actually I am getting cable this week. So back to blogging?finally! Sorry my Fashion Feen readers!! I hope you forgive me!

Now, I shall touch on the subject everybody has been talking about for the past week. Yeah, yeah, Lady Gaga arrived to the Grammys this year, in a freaking egg. She had supermodels carrying her in. We all heard about it. Are you surprised? I wonder if it?s her or her people, or both, who come up with these ideas on how to be more shocking than the last time. What will they come up with next? So, what was she wearing in there? That?s what I want to know, yet I can?t find one single picture of her ?hatching,? shall I say, because everyone is so obsessed with the fact that she was in an egg. How did she breathe in there anyway?

I?m curious to know what statement she was trying to make this time.

Nicki Minaj seems to be a Lady Gaga fashion follower as well. I swear, does every celebrity have to be so darn outrageously dressed? Can?t anyone just look normal and classy like Jennifer Aniston always does? Keep it simple! She gets just as much media attention looking normal! And what?s up with the Frankenstein hair?! Ay yi yi! I?m so over it!

Why The Attraction?   

There have been many accessories in the past and many will be created in future but Shamballa bracelets will not be placed among the lot. What differentiates Shamballa bracelets from others is its quality. By quality, we do not limit it to the quality of the metal or stone used in the making of Shamballa bracelets.

Celebrities love to look fashionable without looking awkward; Shamballa bracelets help them achieve it. Like everyone else, celebrities do love to keep great health, physically and mentally; Shamballa bracelets let them have both. 

Shamballa bracelets have come to stay. They have been there for years but they have come to limelight only recently. Celebrities spare no efforts to look their best in Shamballa jewellery, which is a promotion in itself for the jewellery. Shamballa bracelets are unlike many other accessories. Its healing power is its specialty and hence the coming years will see many celebrities sporting Shamballa bracelets and the focus is going to remain rooted.

The World?s Most Exciting Modeling Contest: Fresh Faces 2013

I?ve always wanted to be a model but I was too short. (I?m only 5?5).

Best & Worst Dressed at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards

Best Dressed

Jennifer Lopez looking her usual sexy self in gold.

Ariana Grande, my new girl crush, always rocking these little flared dresses and this signature pose, too cute. She went a little darker this time but it?s still cute.

Austin Mahone looks young and adorable as he should with some moon boots as his only fashion statement.

Chris Brown, other than looking like a troublemaker with that expression on his face, his outfit is nice and put together. I like the maze print sweater.

Emblem3 looking young and fresh in skinny ties, leather jackets and cool kicks.

Jason Derulo looks sexy! I like the arms showing, why the hell not when you have arms like that?

Kacey Musgravest chose a beautiful little black lace dress with hot pink pumps and lips for added hotness.

Kimberly Perry looks like a princess, and reminds me of Faith Hill.

PSY?can?t believe I put him on the best dressed list but this is his signature look: blazers, black slacks and saddle shoes, oh and those round scientist glasses. But I do in fact like this blazer, and don?t mind the splash of pink at the cuffs either.

Roshan Fagan is quite possibly the best dressed. I love this blazer and it looks nice paired with a fresh white tee, nice watch and light jeans.

Taylor Swift can really do no wrong, she always looks sexy and classy, even when she goes for a little edge.

Worst Dressed

Audrina Patridge?it?s just the leather skirt I don?t like. Everything else would have been fine! It?s kind of tacky.

Carly Rae Jepsen trying to look bad ass as opposed to her usual sweet innocent looks? Not working.

Chloe Mortez?too mismatchy!

Hayden Panettiere, such a young, gorgeous girl, but here she looks too much like a mom. The dress and lack of makeup makes her look older when she should be rocking some color and sex appeal.

Jennifer Morrison is showing too much underneath that dress. It could have worked if it wasn?t as sheer.

Jenny McCarthy?well you haven?t aged a bit but this is not the 90?s anymore! This look is just plain trashy!

Kesha?blahhh. No makeup, hair slicked back and then a crazy high slit. Obviously she isn?t wearing panties. Right? Way too much.

Miley Cyrus, this outfit is straight out of Alice & Wonderland. Your hair is punk enough, you don?t need to overdo it with crazy ensembles. A nice gown paired with punky hair and red lips would do just fine.

Nayer..someone?s trying to make a statement. Not digging it. Way too much cleavage. And why the dog?

Selena Gomez..I really debated on this one. I hate to put her under Worst Dressed because she looks beautiful but the neon ?pool noodle? thingys are what killed this otherwise chic dress.

Wiz Khalifa & Amber Rose?too much leather on him and too much fabric on her, making her look even bigger than she is. I think pregnant women should wear fitted dresses. It?s classy and shows off the belly.

Z Lala, the next Lady Gaga? Yuck. No one wants to see all that! And who wrapped her shoes like a present?

Effortless Espadrilles

One of the best options you have for Summer shoes, espadrilles provide effortless cool and comfort for the warmer months of the year. Espadrilles are effectively flat shoes made from canvas and cotton, which have a flexible sole, and can be slipped on and off ? they?re ideal for when you want an alternative to flip flops, and have become increasing popular in the UK after a long period of success in Europe and the United States. Why, then, are espadrilles such a good choice as footwear?

Slip on espadrilles are available in a wide range of different colours, with navy and more neutral versions being combined with brighter prints from brands like Twisted Soul. Classic canvas espadrilles can be worn when out and about in the sun, and are particularly worth getting for short trips to and from the beach on holiday. Cotton espadrilles are basically like  wearing slippers outside the house, although this does mean that you have to be careful not to get them too wet or muddy.

Espadrilles have been a sound option for men seeking comfortable Sumer shoes for some time, and developed out of peasant footwear into a European staple ? classic styles of espadrilles go well with short sleeve shirts and denim shorts, but can also be effectively combined with printed T shirts. More elaborate espadrilles with bright colours are similarly worth combining with retro items such as fedoras and classic sunglasses styles, as well as with chinos and white shirts.

You?ll see a lot of people wearing espadrilles if you?re on holiday in the Mediterranean, where they?re a common option for people living by the beach. Be careful, though, not to wear espadrilles out in the rain, or at muddy festivals, as they quickly fall to pieces if they?re not treated carefully in harsh conditions ? espadrilles are a Summer shoe more than anything else, and you should avoid getting them wet as you would with a good pair of Converses if you want them to hold together for a long time.

When looking for espadrille brands, you can find higher end slip on shoes from Ralph Lauren, as well as a variety of different styles from Twisted Soul and other labels, which can be found via outlets like Officers Club. It?s best to remember, though, that espadrilles need to be looked after if you want them to last the Summer, and that they?re best for wearing on the beach and by the pool, as well as for enjoying days out in the heat in local parks.

As with any kind of shoe, don?t skimp on quality, and try out a few different kinds of espadrilles before you settle on one ? you might want to take several pairs with you on holiday if you want to mostly wear cotton, rather than canvas espadrilles. Once you get used to wearing them, espadrilles are comfortable and effortless to take on and off and match with different outfits, while letting you indulge the dream of wearing slippers all the time.

Beyonce as Mrs. Carter for H&M

I’ve been meaning to follow up on my last post about Beyonce for H&M’s Summer Collection, so here is the new video ad featuring her new song, “Standing on the Sun.” Beyonce looks stunning on the beach dancing in a fringe bikini, summer dresses, and in both light and dark colored hair. Look at that bod!

It’s almost May! That means the collection will be available soon.

What do you think of the video?
