Awards ceremonies seem to bring out the sartorial risk-takers with thigh-skimming skirts, bare backs and most of Rihanna’s naked body. But the hemlines that once provoked public outrage have nothing on the latest daring silhouette to sweep the red carpet.
In 2012, Anja Rubik shocked attendees at the Met Gala in a carefully draped Anthony Vaccarello dress that barely concealed her bottom half.
Two weeks ago, Kendall Jenner arrived at the 2014 MuchMusic Video Awards in a gown that may have made even Miley Cyrus blush. While the top half of the gem-encrusted dress looked ladylike, the Fausto Puglisi creation was less demure below the waist. Two high slits exposed the 18-year-old model’s pelvic bones.
