We have been seeing many nip-slips lately and image consultant Michael Sands tells us why that may be! Are the girls purposely vying for attention?
Wardrobe malfunctions are nothing new to Hollywood and now more and more starlets are letting it all hang out. With so many girls making headlines for nip slips we’re dying to know why they aren’t being more careful with their clothing choices. Taylor Momsen, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Kim Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian have recently bared it all without any shame or damage to their reputation. Celebrity image consultant Michael Sands reveals why flashing works for some of Hollywood celebrities and not for others.
“Nip slips work for some celebrities and definitely don’t work for others. Khloe Kardashian is not on the same caliber as Rihanna or Taylor Momsen. Khloe is not an actress or a performer, she’s a reality star but doesn’t have any particular talent. People don’t want to see her nipples!” said Michael Sands.
Michael does make some exceptions though. He thinks that Khloe’s older sister Kim got away with posing in her birthday suit because her celebrity status is centered around being a sex symbol. “The only Kardashian sister who could get away with a nip slip is Kim because she’s a star, a sex symbol and can get away with it.”
Michael explains that part of succeeding in Hollywood is being sexy, so performers like Lady Gaga, Rihanna, and Taylor have to continually prove they are hotter than their competition. For them wardrobe malfunctions are one way to keep them on top of the charts. Some celebrities think that exposing themselves is one way to generate publicity for their careers.
“Music stars sell sex. If you have talent, nip slips can work in your advantage in a very subliminal way which is good.” said Michael. “Rihanna and Taylor are performers. Rihanna, in particular, is a music star, so she needs to continually sell sex. It’s OK that Rihanna shows her nipples because sexiness is a big part of her image and she has legitimate talent. Rihanna also leaves much to the imagination because there is a difference seeing a nipple under a see-thru shirt than a nipple completely exposed.”
“Same goes for Taylor Momsen, she is now trying to make a name for herself as a music star. She wants to get guys to come see her perform. It’s common these days for girls like Taylor to be going from 17-years-old to 25.”
But some A-listers disagree, Reese Witherspoon just ruffled some feathers for calling out young girls on capitalizing on their sex appeal instead of their talent. Tell us what you think! Do you think young starlet’s showing their boobs is helpful or harmful to their career?
