Can We Please Say Bye To The Sheer Trend?

Can We Please Say Bye To The Sheer Trend?

The red carpet of late has been very hit-and-miss, I’ve been loving Cannes with all the Old Hollywood Glamour, but the Met Gala and the recent Billboard Awards really fell short for me, in part because it seems that stars are just interested in all the shock-and-awe styles, more flesh the better. 

It seems that the red carpet has moved on from displaying exquisite fashion and pleasing fashion critics to achieving the most likes on Instagram. It isn’t about being best dressed, but rather being the most popular, which in turn means more flesh than dress it seems.

We saw it with Beyonce in Givenchy at the Met Gala, the singer posted her sexy uber-sheer gown on her social media channels before she’d even stepped foot on the red carpet. Gone are the days where suspense was a good thing that you didn’t know who was wearing what until they stepped out of the limo, Instagram it seems has become a pre-requisite to any big event. We’ve been seeing behind-the-scene snippets of the hair and make-up for a while, I like that it adds to the excitement, but now the stars go one step further and post their looks from the hotel lobby. It makes me wonder whether instant social media is taking the fun out of the red carpet.

I’m getting a little off topic, saying bye to sheer, but I think these celebrities really understand the power of social media, they can control the narrative, how the look is presented, even discuss the who and the why, it is as though Instagram and Twitter are becoming the new red carpet correspondents, E! must be getting a little worried.

But do Beyonce and Jennifer Lopez, two of most stunningly beautiful women on the plant really need to resort to daring bare-all looks. Just check out J-Lo in this tummy-baring custom Charbel Zoe gown at the Billboard Awards. Is it just me who thinks this gown looks cheap? I get it she is sexy, she is comfortable in her own skin, and her body really is slamming, buy do we need to see it, each and every time? Where’s the mystery, the restraint, the understated glamour for a change?

I get it these words aren’t often associated with J-Lo, just take her Versace Met Gala gown for instance, another gown all about the sheer, but for me this dress didn’t even look that flattering on her. This isn’t about hating on Jennifer Lopez, I have a serious girl crush on her, so beautiful, and I do love the sexy vibe she exudes, but I really think she is better than these shock-and-awe sheer gowns she has been wearing of late.

Do you remember when she wore Elie Saab to the Oscars early this year? I loved how elegant and refined that look was, I’m hoping that she will start to embrace glamour and elegance over this overt-sexiness that she has been giving us, maybe she could leave that for her stage shows. 

What are your thoughts on all the sheer happenings on the red carpet?

Oscars 2015: Jennifer Lopez In Elie Saab

Oscars 2015: Jennifer Lopez In Elie Saab

Who: Jennifer Lopez

Where: At the 87th Annual Academy Awards held at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, California

Wearing: A blush tulle belted Elie Saab ballgown, embroidered with pearls, stones and sequins, with a plunging neckline, teamed with $2.5 millions worth of Neil Lane diamond and platinum jewellery 

Verdict: I have a serious girl crush on Jennifer Lopez and it is for moments like this, she really knows how to work the red carpet, make a statement, while still being true to herself, and I love that on this occasion she surprised me with this princess moment in this gorgeous Elie Saab gown but still brought the sexy that we expect from her.

I think for some there might be a little too much boob on show, but come have you seen them, pretty perfect if you ask me, and if you have them why not flaunt them!!!

As well as loving the dramatic gown, which looked even more beautiful when she took to the stage to present, I also adore her make-up and that high ponytail. 

Simply stunning.

Golden Globes 2015: The Best Celebrity Instagram Moments

Golden Globes 2015: The Best Celebrity Instagram Moments

Of course we all love the official red carpet snaps from award shows, but this year I think all the fun is going to happened on Instagram as this past year actresses and actors really have got on board and embraced the picture sharing site, I am obsessed with following Diane Kruger, Reese Witherspoon, and Kate Hudson.  It was so fun to see A-list celebs sharing all the behind-the-scenes gossip from the Golden Globes – from the make-up chair, inside the limo, on the red carpet, during the award show and of course those boozy after parties. So I thought I would share a few of my favourites so you could add them you following list ahead of the next award show.  Are you following your favourite A-listers on Instagram?
