Forget about covering up those famous assets. When it comes to the red carpet, skin is always in.
It’s not shocking that celebs love flaunting their svelte selves in front of photographers and lately, it seems like they’re willing to do just about anything to stir headlines. From going commando to discovering unique ways to make use of leftover duct tape, there’s nothing these stars won’t do to make their mark even more indelible.
But if you think the racy trend will fizz out anytime soon, guess again.
“Celebrity style, especially when it pertains to the music industry, is all about creative self-expression,” explains Los Angeles-based personal stylist and image consultant Laurie Brucker. “Being able to be as raw as naked is the only free thing a star can do to break from their personal life shackles. It’s incredibly liberating to actually feel free and open in your body when in your world you’re being boxed in for every move you make. Celebrities don’t live freely and this means self-expression is true freedom to be who and what they want to be.”
It also helps if you have a heaven-sent figure that just has to be shown off.
Brucker agrees that the daring dresses making the rounds are not for the timid nor should they be worn for more ordinary, everyday affairs. However, the demand to see and show more will only continue to increase.
“Unfortunately, as the media keeps pushing celebrities to the breaking points, I expect that nakedness, blunt, and vulgar wardrobe for reaction will always be a ‘wrecking ball’ in all of our walls,” she says.
Some of these scandalous gowns will either entice or nauseate, but all are certain to make your jaw drop.
