CHRISSY Teigen may as well have been completely naked at the American Music Awards, according to an article by Nadia Selemme
She claims the swimsuit model took the “nude” dress to a new level, sporting no knickers and a dramatic side-split held together with a safety pin, that went right up to her torso and left almost nothing uncovered. Like, nothing.
to anyone harmed mentally or physically by my hooha,” Teigen joked on
Instagram.It has become almost standard for celebrities not to wear bras or
knickers on the red carpet.
Teigen's performance comes after a crescendo of very revealing red carpet performances over the last few years, in which celebrities compete with one another to get media attention by wearing more and more sexy dresses, which means less and less. Adrienne Evans and Sarah Rile call this 'cold intimacy', a deliberately sexualised performance to maximise publicity and attention.
Today, far from being really shocking, it's normal and generally accepted.
Gigi Hadid also had a go at a naked dress on the same red carpet atb the AMA awards wearing a sheer lace Cavalli dress, teamed with nude underwear. But compared to Teigen’s outfit, Hadid’s was tame.
