Modest Is Hottest! Emma Stone Redesigns for Modesty and We Give One Star a Makeover!
Written by T.M. Gaouette | March 18, 2013
Ladies, in the past post Style Guide for Christian Girls: Modesty, I wrote, “The objective of modesty is to refrain from wearing clothing that causes lustful thoughts, whether intentionally or unintentionally.” As Christians, we are taught that to cause others to stumble is to sin. So in being modest in our clothing, we are refraining from causing our brothers to sin and are pleasing Christ with our actions.
Let us not forget 1 Corinthians 10:31, ‘Whether therefore you eat, or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” Everything we do should be for the glory of God, even the way we dress. And it really doesn’t take much to be modest, as you will see from both the modest and immodest examples below!
Now let’s check out this week’s Modest Is Hottest selection.
I love the color and sparkle of this dress. It’s also beautifully modest with the high square neckline and perfect skirt length.
The reason I picked this dress is because of Stone’s efforts to make it modest. The original dress is actually strapless, but she added an undershirt for comfort and modesty. Strapless dresses don’t always look modest, and not everyone is comfortable in them, so consider ways to modify a dress in such cases!
I adore the blue of this dress. The shape and style is also very modest, yet it’s such a pretty and feminine look!
While the design of the front of this gown is gorgeous, the hip area is a little too tight and shapely.
This biggest concern, however, is the design of the dress from behind. It exposes the whole back and the fitted hip area reveals the shape of the butt. Had the dress featured a closed back and looser hip, I really think it would be perfectly beautiful and perfectly modest! Do you agree?
Which of our three modest looks is your favorite?
