Style Trial: Jessie J at the 2012 Brit Awards

Jessie J in a red seethrough dress at the 2012 Brit Awards

We deliberately left Jessie J out of our Brits 2012 Gallery, because we figured this dress deserved its own post. Mostly because she’s gone for that “Look, I’m naked-but-for-my-knickers, but you can’t say anything about it, because I have a thin layer of sheer fabric draped over me: HA!”

This kind of naked-not-naked look is becoming quite common on the red carpet these days, and while there are those of you who believe that awards ceremonies should be exempted from the normal “rules” of dressing, and than on the red carpet , ANYTHING goes, there are also those of you who feel there’s nothing stylish about the “Lookit me, all nekkid!” thing.

Ultimately, these kind of dresses seem designed to be a bit shocking, but they’re not really, because we’ve pretty much seen it all before, haven’t we?

What do you think? Innocent or guilty?

    Y’know, I don’t want to see anyone’s underwear. Ever. Especially in public. The dress itself might have worked if it was lined and actually “dress-like”. This is just barely enough to keep her from being arrested for indecent exposure.

    What annoys me is that this dress would be stunning if it wasn’t see-through.

    I love her hair and makeup, but hate the transparrncy of the dress.
