"To the fashion world’s apparent dismay, there was no level of sheerness a publicity-hungry celeb-gal would turn down."

"We see the above ensemble as a throwing down of the gauntlet by the fashion world, as if to say, 'You want sheer dresses ad infinitum, ladies? Fine. We’re gonna start making HIDEOUSLY UGLY jockstrap inspired underwear for you to sport in public.'"

As best I can make out, the goal of the fashion industry is to search out that fairly small subset of the human race who actually look good naked, in order to demonstrate that it is possible to design clothing that makes them look awful.

Kind of gives new meaning to that old expression, "the butt of the joke."

The woman is pretty enough, the dress is very silly, though not particularly immodest by the standards of the last 60 years.
Her makeup does her no favors either, it detracts from her beautiful blue eyes.
The worst part are the awful tattoos, they just look like filth. They spoil the sleek lines of her figure.

Tramp stamps need tramp outfits to match. The secret is to never go out in daylight. It's a dim light outfit.

Maybe her perfume makes it go better together.

Who gives a rat's about Paris Jackson? Has she ever accomplished anything beyond being Michael Jackson's "daughter"?

Big Mike said...

Jupiter for the win, in the very first comment. Well done, sir!

Visible bra backs under thin blouses was standard office wear long ago, with no statement being made as far as I could tell.

Looking good naked is pretty impossible. Looking good nearly naked is the plan.

Imagination has to kick in.

Tattoos all over below the neck, side nose ring but no septum piercing. Shouldn't we be surprised if this young woman doesn't have "issues?"

William said...

That headline was click bait, but the outfit was rather modest. I don't think she should have worn the bra underneath it. The look would have been far more dramatic without it. It would have highlighted the delicacy of the embroidery patterns on the blouse. Also, I don't understand why these celebs go to all the time and trouble of bikini waxes if they're going to wear underpants.

Ralph L said...

Armpit hair!

I think she chickened out and put on the flesh-tone undergarments.

It is the latest in hobo swimwear.

Kate Middleton wore a sheer dress over black undies in a fashion show fundraiser and caught William's eye--and other parts. It works for some guys.

I think fashion designers have a secret bet over who can make women wear the most hideous clothes.

Danny Thomas had a song about this in the secret life of Walter Mitty

MaxedOutMama said...

Well, but the underwear is HER choice. And aren't we supposed to respect women's choices? Isn't it all about choice? How DARE they attack a woman's choices!

The fashion industry didn't make her put any of that on. The dress, what there is of it, is ugly. In a sense one might say that the only point of the dress is to focus attention on the underwear, or alternatively the lack of it. I think she is making a deliberate statement with the jockey-style undies.

I guess in a few more years the only edgie thing left will be designer pubic hair cut/styles/coloring.

Danny Kaye.

First, it was Paris Hilton, whose mission in life has been to unsettle the nature vs. nurture debate by demonstrating that good genes coupled with the best schools can still bring forth a philistine moron. Now we have Paris Jackson, a "celebrity" I have had the good fortune to have absent from my consciousness until now.

Is there something about the name Paris? The original was a hollow-skulled twerp whose unbridled lust brought down a whole civilization. Lately, some Americans have applied the name to daughters, obvious of the fact that Aléxandros was a male. Perhaps these parents are following the fashion of naming daughters after geographic entities, like the idiotic Clintons who named their heifer after a London borough. Whatever. Or maybe it's oracular? He: Our daughter was born without a brain! (sob) She: The we must call her Paris. The gods have decreed it.

The dress isn't bad at all, but her choice of foundation garments is incongruent with the dress. A nice camisole and tap pants would have been comgruent and not distracting, tasteful. But, Hollywood hasn't been tasteful since the early 1960s.

Or to distract from the absence of anything human going on behind that vacant leer.

High waisted granny panties are du jour. Gay guys frightened by ladybits: a perennial classic.

I think T&L meant to say:

BALLS ARE IN YOUR COURT, Paris.

Too much under-eye makeup actually detracts from her beautiful eyes and makes her appear more ghoulish than she is (she's a very pretty woman.)

I considered naming my daughter Constantinople. Connie, for short.

Agreed!! Tattoos have become the new virginity.

I am posting my first time comment after a long period of only viewing. I am impressed both by Ann's "bait" of topics and the quality of her commenters. On this topic, I offer my thought that this fashion example, and many women's fashions, demonstrate the view that male homosexuals enter the field of women's fashion design to express their hatred of their mothers and women in general.

Sez you.

sodal ye said...

I like it. An imaginative and attractive outfit.

Luckily for her, you could not.

Istanbul was Constantinople,
Now it's Istanbul, not Constantinople.
Been a long time gone, Oh Constantinople,
Now it's Turkish delight on a moonlit night.

Every gal in Constantinople
Lives in Istanbul, not Constantinople,
So if you've a date in Constantinople
She'll be waiting in Istanbul.

Even old New York was once New Amsterdam.
Why they changed it I can't say,
People just liked it better that way.

So, take me back to Constantinople.
No, you can't go back to Constantinople.
Been a long time gone, Oh Constantinople.
Why did Constantinople get the works?
That's nobody's business but the Turks'.

Why not Incontinentia?

It's at least feminine 1st declension IIRC.

Breezy said...

The underwear distracts horribly. The embroidery is actually neat and should have been highlighted w a nice ivory toned fabric background. Would have looked more chic.

Here, she just looks hideous. Her father knew how to look edgy yet glamorous. She didn't get those genes.

Nah, I've been coloring mine since the 80's.
And there was a gal at our swing club back then who trimmed hers in the shape of a heart. Very fetching, I envied it.

Today it's piggies, not pussies. And I'm old enough that I was startled when I read about anal bleaching.

Take it away, Laslo!

The underwear goes with the dress. It's all about the label.

Luke Lea said...

I don't see the problem. Cute suit.

wildswan said...

The dress has themes from Greek vases so I guess we are supposed to think of Paris, Helen and the Trojan war. My thought is that if these people had been designing women's clothes in Greek times (or Achaean) there would have been no abduction of Helen. Paris would not have bothered. Then, no Trojan War, no Iliad, no Western civilization. Then, we would not be living in the decline of Western civilization. We must strive to restore women's fashion to fashions that enhance beautiful women. That accomplished, we bring back the Iliad since then people will be able to understand why Helen was kidnapped. And so, step by step we make our arduous way back to civilization.

I don't believe she got any of his genes.
