How Did Naked Become Fashion's New Normal?
I was dodging traffic and hailing a cab, clinging to a small nude slip underneath my dress while having my picture taken, and wondering why I didn't think the whole thing was crazy. This might be regular work for a model, but not for me. Why wasn't I bothered by the fact that people were staring at me in a dress that left the illusion that I was basically naked, save for a few bright-red embroidered flowers? Heck, I didn't even care that my mom and dad would see the photos — on the Internet, no less.
The truth is, I can't remember the last time I gasped when I saw a celebrity going totally sheer on the red carpet either. Now, I think we just roll our eyes. So just how did something so scandalous become something so mundane? I think it has something to do with all the fitness going on — and I know I'm not alone.
