Baring for Attention



High fashion has always had questionable designs and styles. Most of them are only made for runway but the shameless, fearless, and daring can attempt to wear them as off-runway outfits. These days, designers are blurring the line between runway and ready-to-wear looks. Celebrities, who undoubtedly help designers sell their outfits by parading in them, are crossing the line between sane and trashy-insane. Are the designers losing their minds? Are they feeling less inspired these days that they feel they have to go over-the-top in order to stand out?


Kanye West's clothing line features nudes and sheers. His wife, Kim Kardashian, who wears his designs has shown us more than the eyes of the public should see. The sheer fabric and super-tight form-fitting clothes have been her go-to for some time now. In her case, going nude is not new to her. She's used to the criticisms and uproar by now. If being a mom hasn't encouraged her to dress responsibly, I wonder what will. 


Then came an Italian designer with dresses that at first one would think, 'Wow, these dresses are beautiful and elegant' until you look down a bit and notice the extremely long slits. Gone are the days of the 'sexy thigh high slit' (aka Angelina Jolie's Oscar 2012 dress).  Now they've decided that the slit should reach the crotch. It doesn't end there. How about we add a tan line where underwear should be. Yes, just a tan line the shape of panties and leave the panties back at home. Let's look for an effective way to draw the eyes down there. Good job! Oh, and while we're at it, let's pray that there is no breeze that would make the fabric flutter and give the world a view of something they clearly need to see.

What is wrong with you designers?
