Stars defy Grammy wardrobe advisory with bold choices

Alicia Keys

The anti-obscenity advisory did not prevent stars like Rihanna, Katy Perry and Jennifer Lopez from turning out in their fashionable best at the 55th Grammys red carpet showing ample skin through their cut out and sheer gowns.

Majorly directed at female attendees, the advisory by channel CBS banned flaunting of certain body parts and asked to avoid sheer see-through clothing that could lead to any kind of unwelcome exposure.

Lopez wore a one-shoulder Anthony Vaccarello gown with a thigh-high slit a la Angelina Jolie at the 2012 Academy Awards, and she joked that she had read the memo as she took the stage to present an award.

"They didn't say anything about leg! I thought I was being such a good girl. A little shoulder and a little leg," she said on the red carpet.

Rihanna showed off her svelte figure in a sheer scarlet floor-length Azzedine Alaia number on the red carpet. For her Bob Marley tribute, the 24-year-old changed into a two-piece sequined outfit barely covering her bust.

Perry showed down-to-there cleavage in a seafoam Gucci gown, attracting funny gaping expressions from comedienne Ellen Degeneres and cheeky ones from Elton John.

Alicia Keys broke the ban twice - on the red carpet in a daring black dress with snakeskin top half and then again on stage in an LBD with see-through panelling.

Destiny's Child star Kelly Rowland, in a Georges Chakra outfit, also showed a lot of skin. Her highly structured cut-out gown flashed some major cleavage with strategically placed panels protecting her modesty.

One of the biggest offenders was singer D'Manti. While she has yet to hit the big time, her sheer outfit landed her lots of attention on the red carpet. The slinky see-through black dress with strategically placed stones by Claudio Milano is sure to get her on top of the worst dressed list.
