Despite The Memo, Grammys Awards Red Carpet Features Plenty of Skin
A warning not to show too much skin didn’t seem to deter the stars out Sunday for the Grammy Awards.
Jennifer Lopez breaks all the rules in sexy black gown & shows a LOT of leg!, and she joked about it as she took the stage to present an award. Katy Perry showed down-to-there cleavage in a seafoam gown.
CBS put out a memo earlier in the week asking that “buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered” for the televised award show. The memo sent out Wednesday also warned against “see-through clothing,” exposure of “the genital region” and said that “thong type costumes are problematic.”
Rihanna seemed to get the memo: The usually provocative star covered up in an elegant red gown. Taylor Swift wore a prim gold metallic floral cocktail dress by Jenny Packham to the pre-telecast awards before changing into something a bit more revealing for the red carpet. Beyoncé wore a modest pantsuit. All three won early awards in the pre-telecast.
“I think it’s just, you know, we should always stay classy and dress according to the event that’s being held,” Ashanti said on the red carpet.
