When Did Being Naked Become The New Formal?

After a year of cancellations and lack luster attendance due to Covid, Hollywood seems to be roaring back with The Emmy's, VMA's, and Met Gala just recently happening and with that, came all the red carpet fashions we love to see and talk about.

The carpets are filled with all the glamor and big name designers and styles that will be copied on the cheap by next month of all the Hollywood stars you can feast your eyes on. Then all of a sudden, in the middle of this red carpet march, you see it, or did you see it? The next starlet walking into the event has all the flashbulbs on overdrive with the, is she, or isn't she....she is! naked or nearly naked in what can only loosely be described as a dress. At that point, one can only hazard a question: when did naked become the new formal?

When Did Being Naked Become The New Formal?

I don't think in generations past, there was such a thing like describing a formal gown as having vagina or butt cleavage because there was no such thing, and no one would dare lest they be labeled a harlot, but now, it's to the point, or rather well beyond it, of how much can the stars get away with? Are we beyond the point of decency?

When Did Being Naked Become The New Formal?

I don't know any formal setting or event "in real life" where any woman can get away with this without being escorted out or arrested, and yet here we are. And why is this okay or why should this be okay? Feminists would say, women should be allowed to wear what they want up to and including nudity, or perhaps a woman being able to show her body is a form of female empowerment. I would then ask that feminist or extremely liberal thinker, is this also okay for men to walk down the carpet with their junk on full display while we're on the subject?

When Did Being Naked Become The New Formal?

We all know Hollywood is a separate breed for which many of the rules of decent society and actual laws rarely apply, so it is no surprise that nudity is added to that list, but it is also no surprise that this is done for MAXIMUM attention. There isn't going to be someone who doesn't notice a nearly naked or fully naked starlet on the red carpet. It's a way to guarantee press even if the press is not as favorable as they would have liked, but as they say in Hollywood, all press, is good press. So in between flashing their butt crack, side vag, or a loose nipple, they find the time to promote their new movie or Netflix deal or album coming out soon.

When Did Being Naked Become The New Formal?

But of course, the new formal doesn't apply to everyone. The same people that would say "let them live," only mean, if you are a thin YOUNG conventionally attractive skinny model/actress type, not if you have an ounce of, or several of fat on you, which makes a bigger point, pun intended, why is one woman's almost or total nudity more acceptable than others if we're on the train of just let women be free and live their lives. A lot of people don't really believe that for all women least of all anyone plus sized, or older.

This is MY opinion, and you're welcome to have your own, but an awards show is generally about honoring someone for the hard work that they've done, but it is difficult to take one seriously while they're thanking their mom for all her love, and all their producers, and GOD on stage, when their butt is hanging out and an audience can definitely tell if a starlet has been waxed down there or not. I feel like being naked or nearly naked allows for your objectification and for people to see these women as nothing more than sexual beings to be digested by the press and it only furthers the message that in order to be a successful woman in Hollywood, you have to give it all away.

    Well we are in times where naked women are seen as free women whereas modest ones are looked at as oppressed.

    It's the culture of a hypersexualised society. It's even more dangerous because it comes under the banner of women rights and what not so women can be easily attracted to such movements. And men, oh boy. Why wouldn't a man want to see more of a woman's body for free like that on the streets, right?

    The more women dress like this the more they are being labelled as sexual objects. Now I am not saying it's entirely the woman's fault here but like come on now. We can literally see so much of a woman's body more so than how much her husband would see of her while they're in the bedroom together. Every time a fake group comes out calling for so called women rights women just blindly follow cause who wouldn't want more rights, right? Except that this has become pure degeneracy and disgrace to the woman's position in a society. Marrying is discouraged, cheating is rampant and even encouraged among men, the younger generation has to grow up witnessing all kinds of degeneracy, etc..

    Can people wear whatever they want? Sure, go for it. Do I think its okay? Hell no. There should be a limit for everything. Just because something new comes up everyday doesn't mean we should accept it right away. That doesn't show anything about us except that we have no principles that we live on. Because, if you tolerate everything you stand for nothing.

    The name of the game is getting your face (and other bodily parts) in the news- in the papers (what are those?), on TV but particularly in "social media".
    Sadly, with each passing year, performers have to resort to ever-increasing
    (s) extremes to be noticed and stay on "top of mind". Forty years ago, who would have thought TV shows would EVER have the word "pi - - ed" in them. Now, there is that and far worse. Have to keep pushing that proverbial envelope to keep their numbers up. And, if it takes a sheer body stocking with a couple of splotches of opaque coating in a few spots to do it, then that is what will be done. Some of the stars do NOT appear to be ecstatic at these photo ops, either. Maybe they are realizing what they are having to sacrifice just to stay on their fans' radar.

    They're not naked. They're celebrities, their job is to entertain people, and that's what they are doing. I'm not saying that it does not look bad, or that I would wear those, because believe me, I would never. But eh, who cares, man?

    Society has been going in that direction ever since the sexual revolution of the 70's. As each decade passes, women, especially, have been pushing the envelope further and further. In 2020 and 2021, girls having been protesting adamantly to wear clothing that exposes themselves in the classroom setting. On the red carpet, female stars are pushing the boundaries of decency by seeing who can expose themselves the most.

    I wouldn't say that is considered naked, but revealing yes... but I agree with you on Hollywood 100%. They are a different breed and I don't watch any of those awards or anything. Don't go to movies and really they are only making garbage so they aren't getting any of my money anymore.

    They did shoot themselves in the foot though by holding movies until this year, many of the theaters around here went out of business and now that they have started releasing them... there isn't really anywhere for them to be shown.

    I'd have to drive 35 miles EACH way if I wanted to go see a movie, not gonna happen.

    I am generally pretty liberal when it comes to what people want to wear, in fact years ago... I saw a woman butt naked walking down the street, just laughed and continued on my way. Someone else had already called the police on her, she had just decided to take a letter to a near by drop box for mail pickup and didn't want to put on cloths. Or so that is what the news said later after she got arrested.

    I guess being celebrity has its perks, otherwise most of these people would have already gotten arrested for decent exposure especially during events. When I was twenty-two at the time my friend dared me on a $200 bet to take off my clothes and start running on the Yankee Stadium Field. I only took off my shirt and started swinging in the air while running all over the field. I try to hug Alex Rodriguez but I wasn't able to cuz the security guards tackled me to the ground.

    • You said it because censorship in the smallest degree is a slippery slope and who is capable of making this judgement for others. I can judge for myself but should I be allowed to judge you and really I’ve used poor judgement for myself many of times

    • Kaneki05

      @humpbackjack well taking a lesson from the founding fathers themselves even if they didn't implant the idea so well. Since most Americans don't quite understand they were very ageist dogmatic views and were very pro separation of church and state.
      The primary reason for this is they knew laws should never be based on judgement alone, something needs proof of what is bad with it for it to be illegal was there simple premise that never fully got to play out due to catholic extremists and other things.

      But that premise is the important thing here. You can use poor judgement just like anyone else including myself. But if one can prove why something factually needs to be censored then that should be the way law goes.
      Not just "Oh i think what she is wearing is not modest" because put that into a argument for a court of law and... yeah good luck with that judge taking you seriously.

      Now back in eastern countries and still these people who want to live like how they did in the past were judgements were what made laws. And that's what we call extremist fascists views because it's simply dogmatic that shouldn't ever be held up in a proper court of law.

      So in reality judgement should never be a thing to even be concerned by when it comes to laws of what people can do. But people still don't get this idea or try to claim there opinion as fact with some rubbish evidence that just simply don't hold up.
      Like Violent video games make people Violent and i can already see another one here, Celebs be so called "Unmodest" corrupts female minds.

      Saying stuff like this court should be dismissed pretty quickly lol.

    • I agree the sad thing is is half of the laws of the land are from the rich getting their opinions passed as fact. In agreement with you here’s one that listening to heavy metal or rap music would turn kids violent so let’s censor what our kids can listen too

    Furthermore, average women dont dress like this and even if they do none of your business as long as they dont break laws. The celebrities dress like this on purpose on met gala because they have to look extravagant because this is the point of met gala etc.
    They are also not naked. Look up the definition of it.
    If you also want people to respect your modest clothes, you have to respect back. Would you like it if someone shame on aka bully you for being modest?

    • I actually agree with some of your points. You are right. An average woman or overweight woman can't get away with if she wears extrem revealing clothes

    • I am fully against showing off your reproductive organs aka sexual organs like vagina etc. Now i notice in some pics that you almost see the sexual organ some of these women. I think this is not ok because men also can't do that except they are on nude beaches etc.

Anyone can be affected by anything but if it's not illegal then you have to cope with the idea that people do things differently. To those few people bothered..
