Buttocks and female breast nipples banned from this year's Grammy Awards
Grammy Awards implement dress code.
The Grammy Awards tend to be the show that celebrities go crazy in the wardrobe department, but this year, a dress code warning has been issued to those attending.
According to Buzzfeed, CBS Program Practices, who will air the awards show this Sunday, February 10, has issued a “Wardrobe Advisory” to those who plan to attend the show.
The email reads the following:
“CBS Program Practices advises that all talent appearing on camera please adhere to Network policy concerning wardrobe.
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. Please avoid commercial identification of actual brand name products on T-shirts.

Foreign language on wardrobe will need to be cleared. OBSCENITY OR PARTIALLY SEEN OBSCENITY ON WARDROBE IS UNACCEPTABLE FOR BROADCAST. This as well, pertains to audience members that appear on camera.

Finally, The Network requests that any organized cause visibly spelled out on talent's wardrobe be avoided. This would include lapel pins or any other form of accessory.”
The dress code is creating a lot of buzz in the media world, considering some of the scandalous outfits that have graced the red carpet in past years. From Rihanna to Jennifer Lopez in that infamous green Versace dress, the outfits at the Grammys have always caused a stir. But the question remains, will the warning to avoid problematic “thong type costumes” and the request for no “puffy bare skin exposure” be followed? We shall see, but we’re thinking this will only make attendees want to up the ante even more!

beauty tips and style advice
Fashion Weeks may come and go (and with them a focus that shifts from statement coats to statement shoes and statement lips and eyes and back again), but one thing stays the same, no matter the date, year, or season: the editorial need for survival. And with that, you know, ideally looking good, too. Luckily for you, this season the Vogue.com team is divulging its Fashion Week “steals”; must-haves for under $100. From sneakers to a staple cardigan and a classic pair of shades, here are the fall-friendly items that we’ll be carrying with us long after the collections end.
Ever since Kate Middleton transformed into Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, in her Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen wedding dress, the public has embraced her elegant sense of style and her ability to mix high street with haute couture. So it’s only fitting that her maternity looks always follow suit. Early in her pregnancy with Prince George, the Duchess favored muted jewel tones in amber, forest, and tan in mostly flared silhouettes, and as winter gave way to spring, she let loose her penchant for pastels and English designers. A printed Erdem dress showed off her changing physique while a polka-dot Topshop look proved she was having fun with her pregnancy. A staple throughout was the fascinator, which she wore on her last five public appearances. As the world awaits and speculates as to what Kate Middleton will wear—and what gender baby she’ll have—the second time around, we’ve compiled our favorite maternity looks from her first pregnancy.

Models may be pros at walking with authority, wearing clothes well, and looking good doing practically anything—but if there is one thing that exceeds their fashion prowess, it’s their command of the world’s best beauty products. Backstage each season and on set throughout the year, they road test a mind-boggling assortment of mascaras, foundations, hairsprays, and more.

From the world’s sexiest (and most healing) lip balm to the original French pharmacy face cream, here are ten beauty products you can find in almost every model’s medicine cabinet.
