Last night, P Diddy hosted a Pre-Grammy Awards party at Boulevard 3 in Hollywood, as P Diddies are wont to do. And naturally, Paris Hilton showed up, which makes sense because she’s basically the Batman of paparazzi events: you’re not sure if she was invited nor how she got in there in the first place, but you’re kind of reassured by her presence. You are typically not reassured, however, when you realize she
forgot intentionally left underwear out of the equation.
Her dress for the Senate Music Group’s Pre-Grammy Celebration featured sequins, sharp angles and sheer paneling, a look she paired with a ridiculous pinwheel style at the front of her hair. It is the most Paris Hilton turtleneck that has ever existed. It is probably the most Paris Hilton dress that has ever existed, as well.
…And now we know exactly how much pubic hair Paris Hilton waxes. I guess we can all go home now.
Just as her no-undies predescessors before her–Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Lopez, and oh man Jaimie Alexander–we can only assume this look took a lot double-sided tape and quite a few “are you sure you want to wear that?” inquiries from whomever helped her get ready. Either that, or she has a very malicious stylist.
I do not think illusion dresses are nearly ever great, particularly when on the red carpet (as opposed to, say, an episode of Skins). The only exception that I can think of off the top of my head is Zoe Saldana‘s Gucci gown last year, but even then, I would have preferred so many other looks she’s worn instead. Ones like Jaimie Alexander’s now infamous Thor dress (and the car model whose duplicate dress revealed everything) are just plain displeasing to the eye.
Gowns where you essentially need to go undergarment-less are a different sort of dangerous when they are on the red carpet. Not only do they invariably remind me of human lava lamps, but you can also see so much more in photos due to the cameras’ flashing bulbs, which is often not the stars’ intent. Plus, the seams at the back or along the shoulders are always so visible and prominent that it takes away from anything decent about these gowns. TL;DR — if you’re looking to try out celeb fashion, this is one (apparently undying) trend that you should skip.
