Last week, a pretty hilarious email was sent out by CBS asking their attendees to keep those bods in check. Not just because of the politically correct verbiage, but more so the notion that these stars would actually follow them. It was surprising then to watch the carpet last night and see most of the musicians appeasing the telecast's more constrained guidelines. Well, most of them anyway.
However there were a few that made the awards show's Most Wanted offenders by the end of the night. We dissected the Grammy outfits of the evening, paired in contrast with that now popular memo, to expose them. Though that wasn't too hard…they did most of the exposing themselves.
No "exposing bare flesh" – Jennifer Lopez joked that she got the memo, saying no one said anything about leg in a pretty J.LOL moment. However to CBS' credit we do have to point out they did try to cover every base with this blanket statement of a guideline and she and her right leg explicitly violated it.
No "sheer see-through clothing that could possibly expose female breast nipples" and "be sure the genital region is adequately covered" – Kelly Rowland definitely dared to push the envelope last night in risque black attire with cutouts throughout that run right against those "female breast nipples" down to her nether regions. Clearly she had a more open definition about what "adequately covered" entailed.
No "under curvature of the breasts" – While Rihanna barely pushed the boundaries in a stunning red semi-sheer gown on the red carpet, her costume change for one of her sets last night broke this one. During her reggaeton tribute to Sting and the Marleys with Bruno Mars, she rocked some underboob in a two-piece vintage Luciano Soprani crop top and pants ensemble with a little peek-a-boo in between.
No "bare sides…of the breasts" – Katy Perry and Ashanti appeared to find loop holes in this rule by squeezing their way through a couple keyhole necklines that didn't technically show off any forbidden sideboob, but a lot of cleavage that's still technically considered a "bare side."
