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!

Smart fall shopping can’t be boiled down to some set-in-stone lineup of items. It’s much more about how you play with what you’ve got rather than just racking up a bunch of new stuff; sometimes your bank account’s balance simply won’t allow for a full-on wardrobe refresh. That’s when it’s important to know what’s worth it—and what isn’t.
Autumn’s just a few short months away, and we’ve got sweaters, coats and booties on our minds! Below are the first things we’ll be buying (or have already bought!) to kick off next season.
Beauty editors are routinely asked to name three essentials they couldn’t live without on a desert island. So here’s our list: water, matches, protein bars. As much as we depend on beauty products, they’re not exactly essential to survival. These luxurious fragrances, nail polishes, and tools are no exception. They’re the anti-basics—hardly your medicine-cabinet staples. They won’t shrink pores or obliterate frizz, but they will make you weak with desire. And that’s a refreshing change of pace. Beyond just looking and feeling great, each of these cool new things appeals to our sense of style. How’s that for an SOS?
