TODAY’S HOT TOPIC: Immodesty and the Red Carpet
Written by T.M. Gaouette | November 14, 2012
This was what Heidi Klum wore on the red carpet for this year’s EMAs.
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!
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?
