Before I talk ARIAS fashion I need to discuss something else. A few days ago Chrissy Tiegen went to the American Music Awards in LA dressed in a black dress with splits so high up that her ‘hooha’ was pretty much the main attraction. Upon seeing this image I felt compelled to write about it because a) I love Chrissy Tiegen and was quite perplexed with her choice of outfit b) I love fashion and will never miss a chance to talk about it and c) because I wanted to.
The article attracted quite a nice little debate. Which is awesome because that’s what makes this world so great- our diversity! The piece was just my opinion on how I felt women shouldn’t feel the need to display their private parts in order to stay relevant, to shock or to generate publicity. Chrissy Tiegen is so stunning that had she worn a potato sack on the red carpet I’m pretty sure Bunnings would have sold out in seconds.
What this piece wasn’t meant to be was a slut shaming article. Of course we should be allowed to wear whatever the hell we want and not be judged for it. Go ahead, knock yourselves out. But don’t be so naive in thinking that you can have your vulva on display and expect no-one to blink an eye.
The article in no way referred to Chrissy’s character or integrity as a woman and mother- it was my opinion on her fashion choice- and it had nothing to do with not supporting women or being jealous or victim blaming.
Okay- now let’s talk fashion. The ARIA awards were on in Sydney yesterday, which is our equivalent to the Grammy’s minus Kanye West, and Australia’s music glitterati were out in full force. While I’m not too sure who won what I do know who wore what! (Try saying that 5 times.)
Let’s get the most talked about one out the way first. The Veronicas and their gravity defying breasts! The singing sisters came out on stage to belt out their hit In My Blood dressed in nothing more than glitter and tight pants. Twitter lit up instantly with fans exclaiming “OMG the Veronicas are on national TV topless!” And topless they were. Jess and Lisa danced and sung their way through the song (twice mind you because of technical difficulties) and looked like rockstars doing it! Jess’s girlfriend Ruby Rose was particularly proud and tweeted messages of support throughout the performance as she was out of the country and wasn’t able to attend the event. The girls’ outfits (or lack of) have left me quite confused and very envious! Confused because how did they get all that glitter off so quickly to present the next award and how are their breasts so naturally perky?! *sigh*
Following on from Chrissy Tiegen’s Vag dress (yes I do know where my vagina is but vulva dress doesn’t have the same ring to it) we now have the UTERUS DRESS…
Swedish singer Tove Lo wore the sheer orange dress with a print of the female reproductive system printed on the front. I think this wins the whole vagina dress competition. Why just give the world a glimpse of your vag when now you can provide them with an x-ray vision version. I’m waiting for someone to photoshop this to show the ‘time of the month’ edition!
American singer Charli XCX rocked an extremely short white number which in my opinion could’ve been a tad longer…no?
Sophie Monk wore a sheer lace dress with the obligatory nip slip.
Megan Washington looked pretty in pink- although when I look at the dress too long I do think of sheep…
Samantha Jade went bold with a long-sleeved, high-necked metallic-patterned mini dress. Love the hair and make up!
DJ Havana Brown dressed for all the weather- hot, cold, windy? She’s ready for anything.
Aussie favourite Jessica Mauboy wore a slinky Romance Was Born dress and totally rocked it. The dress divided a lot of people but I loved it!
Anthony Callea, I love this look- probably because it’s something I own and wear!
And finally can someone please tell me who does Charlie’s hair? Richard Wilkin’s son has the exact shade of bronde I’m trying to achieve. Seriously, someone hook a girl up!
