We’re fully aware of the important role control briefs play on the red carpet. Sometimes people even wear multiple pairs at one time! And while we dig it when celebrities come forth and admit their enviable award show figures are not solely due to pilates and liquid dinners, there are ways to do this and ways to not do it.
One of the ways to not do it is by wearing a dress that makes your underwear the focal point of your outfit. Julianne Hough and Lena Headey — we’re looking at you. At least we would be if we weren’t so distracted by your lower torsos. This is the Emmys, not the GQ Men of the Year Awards.
Kristen Stewart, it’s with regret that we blame you for this trend. We loved the sheer, nude Zuhair Murad gown you wore to the last-ever Twilight premiere in November. It was beautiful, and your underwear game was impeccable. But as much as we appreciate consistency, this is a look best channeled sporadically. Was it really necessary to do it again only four weeks later?
Take a look through the gallery below and let us know whether this phenomenon best falls into the category of ‘trend’ or ‘wardrobe malfunction’.
