FROM Nicki Minaj as a red nun to Katy Perry as an angel and Lady Gaga arriving in a giant egg, the Grammy Awards are no stranger to bonkers fashion and the odd wardrobe malfunction.
But this year, in a bid to restore some decency to proceedings, and no doubt avoid complaints from middle America, broadcaster CBS issued a dress code edict to attendees about inappropriate attire.
Among other things guests were asked to “avoid exposing bare fleshy under curves of the buttocks and buttock crack” and warned that “bare sides or under curvature of the breasts” as well as thongs were “also problematic”.
Nipples were a definite no-no and in what is surely one of the funniest lines ever to go into a memo EVER, bosses pleaded that “the genital region is adequately covered so that there is no visible ‘puffy’ bare skin exposure.”
So far so ewwwww….
The leaked memo naturally became the most talked about dress code since P Diddy warned women attending his 2009 Oscars party to “wax their legs, get their hair done and invest in a manicure and pedicure.”
The publicity also helped the music awards to their second biggest audience in two decades.
But did the stars take any notice? Well there were certainly no ladybits on display but rockstars are always going to be prone to a bit of rebellion.
Top marks for inventiveness go to Kelly Rowland who managed to show everything and nothing in her sheer Georges Chakra gown which clung for dear life to her every curve.
