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
From Monica, Rachel, and Phoebe on Friends to Blair and Serena on Gossip Girl, here are the most memorable wedding dresses to grace the small screen.
If diamonds are a girl’s best friend, then fashion is the close friend who completes her circle. Style is unique to each and every one of us, but trends come and go to serve as fun ways to spice up our everyday looks or ways to try out something altogether new and bold. Even bridal wear captures trends each season (hello crop tops!), but brides to be must remember that just because it is being sold, does not mean that it is meant to be worn on one of the most important days of your life. This summer, fashion has a slew of great seasonal fads, but most of them just do not work for a wedding. If you’re on the fence about how trendy to be for your wedding day, here are five pieces to avoid during your wedding festivities.
We've done some strange things in the name of beauty (a butt facial for one), but these powerful ingredients would make us gag — if they didn't work so damn well.
The redeeming factor of summer, sadly, not being endless? New seasons require a different wardrobe, and there’s no time like the present to start your fall shopping. With autumn creeping up, I already know the boots and sweaters I’ll be heaving out of the stuffed containers under my bed that I think of fondly as my second closet…but there’s always room for fresh blood. I quizzed Shopbop’s fashion director, Elle Strauss, for help with getting the best strategy in place. Herewith, the 10 pieces she suggests picking up now (plus chic ideas for how to start incorporating them into your current closet).
We may have one more month left in summer, but pretty soon you’re going to have to start thinking about fall outfits. And what’s a bigger fall wardrobe workhorse than denim? Audit your closet to see if you own these jean essentials, and if not, consider adding them to your fall shopping list.
Maybe this sounds familiar: You fall in love with a sweet new face scrub and love it so much that you use it, oh, every day. Morning and night. Until your skin breaks out in protest. Or perhaps you’re in the once-a-year pedicure camp, and have to spend hours pumicing your callouses before even thinking about polish. Well, the laissez-faire approach stops now. It's not just which products you choose—but how often you deploy them. Here’s a quick rundown of how frequently you should be doing various at-home treatments.
