Teens and adults alike across the globe are waiting with bated breath for the Friday release of the second installment of the Hunger Games trilogy, Catching Fire. All of them except for me. I never bothered to pick up the books… you know I don’t do mainstream… so I have no idea what they are really even about except that people are pretty obsessed with the series’ heroine, Katniss Everdeen and her real life identity, Jennifer Lawrence.
While I won’t be watching the movie, I have been watching Jennifer’s red carpet arrivals and Miss Lawrence wore this Christian Dior gown to the Los Angeles premiere on Monday. You know I’m usually a huge proponent for anything that doesn’t require pants (or bra), but has her crotch baring, barely there getup gone too far? Can this lady do no wrong or does the emperor have no clothes… literally?
Lady Lawrence has been on a fashion world tour, blowing my mind at every stop. Last Friday, she showed my other favorite cleavage, aka “side boob” in a different Christian Dior concoction and I’m loving the dark lip, new cropped hair, and edgy but sweet frock.
So, what are you thoughts on Katniss’s Christian Dior at the LA premiere?
This past weekend, three of Tinsletown’s loveliest ladies were all seen sporting a little bit of bare midriff while walking the red (err… orange?) carpet. This bit of belly is different from the crop tops of a couple summers past. It’s not so much belly button as it is rib cage. It’s the teeniest little peek-a-boo of skin that is both sexy and playful. It’s less Christina Aguilera Genie in a Bottle and a bit more Gidget Goes Hawaiian. And for anyone who was ever a bit self conscious about showing some torso, don’t worry. This is much more wearable and will keep that fearsome FUPA under wraps.
While some are referring to these as “bralettes” that’s not quite the right term. (Did I not already school you in bralettes?). I would consider these to be cropped bustier tops. You’ll have much more luck when searching using those terms. The trick to this look is pairing your teeny top with a high waisted skirt or slacks. That way your outfit will read “le petite coquette” rather than “big dirty whore.”
