This year’s Grammy Award attendees have been warned and issued a strict dress code policy. The policy issued by the broadcast company CBS is attempting to avoid any and all wardrobe malfunctions and inappropriate attire.
The policy states that all talent appearing on camera should ensure that “buttocks and breasts are adequately covered” and to be aware that “thong-type costumes are problematic”. It continues to detail that sheer and see-through clothing should be avoided, as should exposure of the “bare fleshy under curves of the buttock” or the “under curvature of the breasts”.
Read the full advisory email:
CBS Program Practices advises that all talent appearing on camera please adhere to Network policy concerning wardrobe.
Please be sure that buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered. Thong type costumes are problematic. Please avoid exposing bare fleshy under curves of the buttocks and buttock crack. Bare sides or under curvature of the breasts is also problematic. Please avoid sheer see-through clothing that could possibly expose female breast nipples. Please be sure the genital region is adequately covered so that there is no visible “puffy” bare skin exposure. Please avoid commercial identification of actual brand name products on T-shirts. Foreign language on wardrobe will need to be cleared. OBSCENITY OR PARTIALLY SEEN OBSCENITY ON WARDROBE IS UNACCEPTABLE FOR BROADCAST. This as well, pertains to audience members that appear on camera. Finally, The Network requests that any organised cause visibly spelled out on talent’s wardrobe be avoided. This would include lapel pins or any other form of accessory.
I can admit, a wardrobe malfunction makes watching fun. What do you think about the dress code policy?
