TODAY’S HOT TOPIC: Immodesty and the Red Carpet

heidi-klum

This was what Heidi Klum wore on the red carpet for this year’s EMAs.

klum-mtv

Klum has never been a model of modesty, but I wonder if she’s being motivated by critics to push the envelope with her immodest fashion sense.

There were opposing viewpoints about Klum’s revealing outfit: While some media outlets described her as “stunning” and a “style icon,” others said she was a “fashion disaster.”

But out of all the fashion feedback and critiques, good and bad, there seemed to be no comment about the complete immodesty of the ensemble. Why? Because it’s about fashion–not modesty–when it comes to style in Hollywood.

Check out Kristen Stewart’s dress at the Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 premiere this week as further proof. It’s completely see-through–Stewart needs a modesty makeover!

Kristen-Stewart

We hope that when a star “leaves nothing to the imagination” that it’s the exception, not the rule.

Here’s how Christ wants us to present ourselves.

Be careful, however, that the exercise of your freedom does not become a stumbling block to the weak. (1 Corinthians 8:9)

Can it be that Hollywood and the media play a major part in advocating for the destruction of modesty and purity? If so, it’s a shame. Klum and Stewart’s outfits are not appropriate and not classy.

We as Christians have a huge responsibility to dress modestly. So don’t let Hollywood and the media dictate fashion. They’re obviously being led by the ways of the world, and not the ways of Christ. I pray that, one by one, women in Hollywood see how damaging immodesty is to society, as well as to their personal self-esteem and self-respect.

Do you find that the risqué fashion of Hollywood encourages you to dress a little on the racy side?

    what’s sad is that people look up to them . . .

    kristen Stewart’s dress is just gross! The color is disguting and it doesn’t suit her. Heidi’s dress looks like pieces of broken jeans strung together. Absolute fashion disasters. They are way too immodest.

    I was flipping through channels the other day and actually saw a Hollywood show that criticizes red carpet dresses call Kristin Stewart’s dress immodest! Granted, they were only saying that because she was wearing it right next to her ex, but I still am glad that even a mean, immoral group of people have some boundaries. I guess there’s hope for everyone!

    This is so sad! Were the fashion designers just so jealous of Heidi and Kristen’s beauty that they wanted to humiliate them and make it look like all they had was skin? Who tricked Kristen or anyone else into thinking they needed to step out in lingerie to make people notice their looks? Who lied to Heidi that instead of showing off her gorgeous face, she had to expose so much of her figure that even the figure itself fades into the background? For that matter, who made the designer think a dress with such stunning beads on the sides would only get noticed if it had no front? It hurts to see people doing this to themselves! 🙁

    Even though I do find Hollywood’s immodest fashions to be atrocious, It does indeed affect me. I hate to admit it, but the more I see other women wearing revealing things, the more I am desensitized to immodesty. And that is not a good thing. Wouldn’t it be awesome if a really big star became an advocate for modesty and got other well-known people to support them?!

    The only people who should see all that is God and your HUSBAND. I would feel VERY uncomfortable in that!

    The human body is art, I wish everyone would stop being so prudish about it. That being said, Klum’s dress was way too revealing IMO…

    Its kind of rude when people call things disgusting or gross if a person is sinning and you want to show love the last thing you should do is call them gross or disgusting.

    I completely agree with the post. And yes Hollywood affects my style. But I continue to walk with Christ no matter what.

    I can’t speak for anyone else, but I personally would be terrified to leave the house in either of those dresses. 😛 It’s sad that these stars feel the need to go to such extremes to get attention. They already have so many people that look up to them.

    I really, really don’t think that Project Inspired should continue to post stuff like this, criticizing celebrities. It says in the Bible it’s not for us to judge. Although we know this is wrong, it’s not something we need to obsess over. What this girl wears does not affect my life, unless I let it. Therefore, I would rather not see images like this at all to begin with. I believe it’s simply wrong to be posting articles like this. It’s wrong to dress immodestly. We get it. But showing us degrading pictures of would could easily be classified as pornography is not okay, even if it’s to show us it’s wrong.

      I agree with you Amckay, it causes the girls to have a judgmental attitude, and you can see it in a lot of comments. I know girls wear what in my mind is immodest, but it’s their body and their choice and it doesn’t affect me.

      I agree. Yeah there’s good intentions behind it, but I’m pretty sure most of the girls on this website are mature enough to know where to draw the line when it comes to clothes and boys and things. I for one would rather read articles that actually focus on God, instead of criticizing somebody elses personal choice in clothing. In a way that’s like putting ourselves above somebody; “Oh that girl is such a sinner, I’d never wear anything like that because I’m a good Christian!”

      Well, I can’t speak for everyone, but I will give you my opinion/how I look at this article and all of those like it. So here goes–

      You’re going to see this kind of stuff whether you want to or not. Perhaps not always to such an extreme, but you WILL see immodesty all over nowadays. Hollywood cranks out articles and pictures and movies just chock-full of immodesty. And they like to sugarcoat it. They like to display it in the best and most positive way possible, making it look acceptable and even ‘pretty.’ And people get sucked into that. They long to be pretty, so they show off as much as possible. They want to be called beautiful, so they hop in bed with their boyfriend. Maybe some really sweet Christian got sucked into that and walked away from God because of it.

      Now, this lady knows that, and she wants to help. She wants to do something. So, she tells all of the PI girls the opposite side of the story that Hollywood tells. She tells you the side with God in it. The side that stands with the Bible. She’s not judging saying “Klum and Stewart are horrible people and they will burn in hell for this!” No. She is simply saying that these dresses are not wholesome, and we should not try to emulate them. She just wants to protect us from all the problems that come along with immodest dress.

        And just a PS; pornography is defined as “writing, pictures, film, etc, designed to stimulate sexual excitement.” (I got that right out of the dictionary, by the way.) Neither the picture nor the article was intended to ‘stimulate sexual excitement.’ The dress may have, but the post certainly did not. I do not think this article could be labeled ‘pornographic’ any more than a People Magazine. Less, in fact! Because this article is speaking out AGAINST this kind of dress, not for it.

      To be honest, Nicole, I agree with amckay for the same reasons. I understand that the world is messed up, but we should be trying to give ourselves positive messages. I think Jesus said that if your eye is sound, your body will be filled with light. Even seeing these articles is not what I had hoped for from Project Inspired.

    That’s sincerely degrading.
    I’m not in any way influenced by THAT.
    And actually ladies? When you cover up and keep certain details to yourself: you become mysterious to others. And to me? Mysterious is cool(:

    I find it sad and disgraceful to our society. Just think of what immigrants must think! 🙁 I mean, that dress barely covers ANYTHING!! she might as well have gone naked!

    OK, that is REALLY weird, and bizarre. She might as well have gone out in public wear the skimpiest underwear available for all the good that dress does in covering up! I guess I understand what she’s doing, but it really isn’t very honorable. Trying to get people to like you, or buy your brand, or whatever by showing off your body like that is really not cool. If I ever had any respect for her, she’s just lost it… =( And really, she’s pretty enough without showing me stuff I totally did not want to see…

    Ugh, that’s disgusting! Nothing about it is attractive either. I definitely understand why some girls feel it necessary to show such much skin, as I have struggled with that kind of thing myself, but that’s just too far. My friend actually just wrote a sermon on modesty and she emphasized something that a lot of celebrities definitely struggle with which is insecurity. They constantly have to compete with others to make the best impression and they think the best way to do that is to show off a whole lot more than necessary. It makes me sick. I will say though, that celebrities certainly influence us teen girls in areas such as dress. The more society thinks is okay, the more we tend to think is okay. Even in the past three years or so, I know that I’ve gotten way more comfortable showing a lot more skin than I used to which probably isn’t a good thing.

    I have one word, ICK!!!!!! I can’t believe that zero critics didn’t say how immodest and inappropriate that dress is. (If you can call it that. I don’t think there is enough fabric there for a dress.) Hollywood is getting worse and worse and the morals there are going down more than ever!

    That’s awful, I can’t believe people actually want to dress so immodestly! And even if they didn’t know it was wrong, don’t they ever feel self-conscious exposing themselves like that?! The dress isn’t even pretty anyway, and it’s completely inappropriate! I pray more celebrities would start becoming advocates for modesty so girls will have positive role models to look up to.

    I don’t know why anyone would want to dress like that. You might as well not wear anything…geez.

    Yucky! Why would ANYONE want to expose themselves so carelessly (or intentionally)? She must be very insecure if she feels the need to dress so immodestly. And Hollywood….they just like to see the stars fall. The bigger the meteor shower, the bigger the stories!
