Celebs Who Are Going to Have Trouble With the Grammy Awards’ “Wardrobe Advisory”
Wait, what? There’s a dress code for the Grammy Awards now? We’re better that more than a few celebs will have some trouble meeting it…
What’s this? The Grammy Awards have a dress code now? But… the intensely bizarre red carpet fashion is what actually makes the Grammys worth watching! Nooooooo!
Anyway, yes: As you may have heard, CBS, the network on which the Grammys are broadcast, issued a “Wardrobe Advisory” in advance of the show on Sunday. An anonymous source forwarded the new dress code to Deadline via email; here’s the text of it, with some of the more entertaining bits bolded for your enjoyment:
“CBS Program Practices advises that all talent appearing on camera please adhere to Network policy concerning wardrobe.
“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. 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. Please avoid commercial identification of actual brand name products on T-shirts. Foreign language on wardrobe will need to be cleared. OBSCENITY OR PARTIALLY SEEN OBSCENITY ON WARDROBE IS UNACCEPTABLE FOR BROADCAST. This as well, pertains to audience members that appear on camera. Finally, The Network requests that any organized cause visibly spelled out on talent’s wardrobe be avoided. This would include lapel pins or any other form of accessory.”
…Wowzers. That’s going to put quite a cramp on a number of attendees’ style. Who, you ask? Well…
