While we’ve been wondering which of The Dark Knight Rises’ two female stars would win a Star Style War, the writers at our old nemesis, The Daily Mail, have been having conniptions over the sight of Pixie Lott’s unshaven armpits at the movie’s London premiere.
Describing the move as a “grooming faux pas”, the paper provides a zoomed-in version of the image above, which shows Pixie’s regrowth in all its glory…or otherwise, depending on your point of view.
So, what IS your point of view on hairy armpits?
On one hand, you could argue that if you’re going to get all dressed up and attend a movie premiere, you might want to also attend to the underarm hair: for many of us, after all, shaving is simply a part of our grooming regimes, and we’d no more attend an event like this with hairy armpits than we’d attend one without combing our hair (the stuff on our heads, we mean), or brushing our teeth.
On the other hand, however, you could also argue that armpit hair is totally natural, and nothing to be ashamed of. We all have it, after all, and in some cultures it’s considered beautiful and sexy, and not something to be covered up. Why should it matter if someone chooses (or simply forgets) to remove it?
Our opinion? We reckon it all comes down to a matter of personal preference, really, but we’re keen to know what you think: crime of fashion, or innocent of all charges?[Images: PRPhotos.com]
