If you want the naked truth, I don't want to see you naked.

2021 Met Gala Delivered SO MANY Naked Dress Moments

(Cosmopolitan Magazine headline)

I’m certain of one thing. I am not a prude.

I’ll try to be tasteful and not at all crude.

But why is it fine

To show proudly on-line

All the people on Earth you are partially nude.

  • Maybe it's a reaction to Covid-19 restrictions. "If I gotta cover my face, let me uncover my genitals." Or, a variation on that, "If the conservatives are right and no one can tell me to wear a face mask, then no one can tell me to cover the other part either."

  • To be blunt, Emily Blunt wasn't.

    Looking at the source, the most I can say is that the expensive outfits implied some nudity, as in "is there the V of a covered crotch there?" Also, Julia Garner and Ella Emhoff (the Second Stepdaughter) wore an answer to The Chase, which James Holzhauer and I both got on the basis that "On The Simpsons, Paul and Linda McCartney were vegetarians so I suppose their daughter is too."

  • Nothing I've seen in the photos looks the least bit comfortable, even for sitting in a theater seat. I don't know why it's considered fine -- it looks silly to me, and definitely a waste of all the work sewing on the beads. At least you got a good poem from it!

  • A wonderful poem, AW! Great commentary.

    Yes, jnorto you are so right. I think this is a reaction to pandemic anxiety. It's always been a skin show, but this year especially so!

  • In reply to Weather Girl:

    Remember Cher in her see-through Bob Mackie dress, was it 1985?

  • In reply to Weather Girl:

    Well, you had 6 of one and a half dozen of the other. Celebrities' gowns have always been outlandish, and I haven't really followed them, but remember some really cutout NFL cheerleader uniforms.

  • In reply to Weather Girl:

    Another thing that hit me as strange is that Bob Mackie had an out;et in Gurnee Mills.

  • In reply to jack:

    Thanks, Jack--I didn't know there was a Bob Mackie outlet! Wow, is Gurney Mills still open?

    Yes--the most magnificent Cher Met Gala dress was from 1974!

  • In reply to Weather Girl:

    Gurnee Mills is still open, but the feeling I had when I was last there about 2 years ago was that it was more a conventional mall than a fashion outlet center; that role having been taken over by the top floor of Chicago Fashion Outlets in Rosemont.

    The other thing I remember about Bob Mackie is that Carol Burnett said "Cher gets all the glamorous stuff, and I get this."

  • In reply to Weather Girl:

    Or 1974?

  • In reply to Weather Girl:

    I think it was -- big, black feathers on her head and not much below.

  • A side note to AW: I've had enjoyed taking on Dennis Byrne and his sycophants, but Dennis is now ripping down my posts, so I will have to sit on the sideline. Have fun!

  • In reply to jnorto:

    Of course, I've "enjoyed," not "had enjoyed."

  • In reply to jnorto:

    1. "Had" seems correct, but maybe you meant not with "...'ve."
    2. Ever since he tried to flame me and failed, he's apparently gone further down Dementia Drive. I wonder if the Tribune, through ChicagoNow, pays him to copy nonsense. From what I get from your comment, he no longer has the capacity to engage commenters.

  • In reply to jack:

    Jack, there's something in the new version of WordPress we use here that has to be turned on in order for Leave a comment to work in the style that AW, Weather Girl and I use. Many other commenters aren't turning it on (and not because I haven't pointed this out).

  • In reply to Margaret H. Laing:

    There was always some feature that said that the blogger had to approve the comment, but I don't know if that was universal. It was certainly invoked if a commenter put more than 1 link in a comment.

    jnorto: Was it the above or did he just delete the comment? A blogger has the right to do that, but it certainly doesn't make friends, influence people, or drive click count.

    The easiest way to get rid of me is to use Facebook comments. Besides the 2 reasons I previously gave for not joining FB, I'm now running DuckDuckGo, which blocks FB plugins.

  • In reply to jack:

    He did both. I posted several observations concerning his proposal that General Milley should be tried by court martial for treason. He took down the last of these, then apparently in anger, he deleted all of my earlier posts, although he had replied to them. The last time I tried to comment resulted in a message telling me that it would have to be approved by the moderator.

  • In reply to jnorto:

    I don't have to click on the post to know:
    1. Googling "General Milley should be tried by court martial for treason" indicates that it wasn't an original thought, but copied from one of several sources, most of which were quoting Mr. Orange.
    2. Knowing your prior posts on AW, it was a legal argument on treason. Going back to "Obamacare IS unconstitutional," and then his subsequent post on that he didn't understand the Roberts opinion, it is futile to argue such a point with a legal illiterate. Then I see in the right pane a post on liability for a bad vaccine, something about which he doesn't have any independent knowledge.
    3. Deleting comments to which he previously replied is bad faith. However that reminds me that when he started to flame me, he threatened to delete a comment, but then said he would keep it to show "what kind of guy I am." That indicates to me that he thinks he is providing a publishing opportunity, while all I cared about is that he got the message, and I replied that it made no difference to me if he deleted the comment or not. However, his reaction shows that AW's comment yesterday is correct: Byrne knows how to use Control-C and Control-V, but can't evaluate the information nor react coherently to comments about it.

  • In reply to jnorto:

    jnorto, Dennis is immune to logic and common sense, so I'm not surprised. I'll miss reading your astute commentary.
