The Grammys and CBS have issued a ‘Wardrobe Advisory’ banning clothing that exposes sideboob, among other things, at the Feb. 10 telecast, as our sister site Deadline.com revealed! I think this is absurd and unnecessary. Isn’t the Grammys all about artistic expression?
Have the people in charge of The Grammys (airing on CBS on Feb. 10) lost their minds? As revealed by our sister site, Deadline.com, on Feb. 6, an e-mail from CBS Standards and Practices was sent to all presenters and performers at the upcoming telecast, advising them to “adhere to Network policy concerning wardrobe” — a policy that goes so far, it even bans sideboob Should all the ladies arrive in potato sacks?

This advisory is sexist. Not only is the policy a serious overreach that unfairly targets women’s fashion, it’s written in the most strangely clinical terminology. “Please be sure that buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered. Thong type costumes are problematic. Please avoid exposing bare fleshy under curves of the buttocks and buttock crack. Bare sides or under curvature of the breasts is also problematic,” the e-mail reads.
But it doesn’t stop there! “Please avoid sheer see-through clothing that could possibly expose female breast nipples. Please be sure the genital region is adequately covered so that there is no visible “puffy” bare skin exposure,” it continues. I don’t even want to begin to contemplate what “visible ‘puffy’ bare skin exposure” is.
Grammys Wardrobe Advisory Has Gone Too Far
Would you tell Lady Gaga that she can’t arrive in her egg? Must everyone walk the red carpet in priestly garb? Would you prevent men from wearing anything provocative? Why must the fashion choices for the fabulous ladies being honored at the event be so limited? It’s time you rethink this prehistoric wardrobe advisory.
Do you agree that the banning of side-boob at The Grammys is going too far, HollywoodLifers?
