Modest Is Hottest! Taylor Swift Looks Super in Stripes and We Give One Star a Makeover!

Girlies, it’s time for a Project Inspired Modest Is Hottest roundup! Are you ready?

Don’t forget to let us know if you have a favorite modest celeb–we might feature them in an upcoming Modest Is Hottest article!


Zoe Saldana

Isn’t this proof that modest is definitely hottest?! Zoe Saldana looks fantastic in this blue dress. We love the square neckline and fitted top, and the skirt is the perfect length.


Carly Rae Jepsen

Carly Rae Jepsen! We’re so loving that adorable ruffled skirt–it’s the perfect length. And she looks beautiful in blue, too!


Taylor Swift

This dress is typical of the Taylor we know and love and it never gets old, right? And this one’s perfectly tailored for her (excuse the pun!). Plus, she wears stripes so well, don’t you think?


Katy Perry

Oooh la la, Katy Perry! We just love that awesome dress color and the fun ruffles around the neckline and skirt edge–and that belt finishes the retro style just perfectly. But we feel the dress itself is just too tight. Not only does it reveal the shape of her whole physique, it’s very shapely around the butt and bust area, making the overall look quite provocative.


Do you think Katy Perry's dress needs an Inspired Makeover, or is it just right?

    If Katy’s dress was on a stick thin, no boobs no butt girl, I guarantee no one could complain.

    There’s nothing wrong with the last dress at all!! In fact it covers more than than the first one does (you can see the ladies breasts).

    Of all the immodest dresses I’ve seen in this post series, Katy Perry’s in this one is the least immodest of all the immodest ones. I think this one can go any way depending on how people feel about tight fitted dresses, but unlike past immodest dresses, this one actually has a nice neckline and length.

    Love Katy’s dress! Wouldn’t change a thing. I also like Taylor’s and Zoe’s Dresses, Carly’s dress is just fine but not really my style.

    I don’t even like Katy Perry’s dress at all. It’s too neon office party extravaganza.

    Taylor actually shops at Target sometimes so ….

    Zoe is showing some cleavage, but not so much that it is horribly obvious. I like Carly’s dress, but the clutch isn’t my speed

    I totally agree 100% on all of these. Including Katy Perry’s the she had a good idea at the top. (unlike most of her outfits, sorry Perry fans!) But, I mean seriously that dress is grabbing at her waist and bottom area. I fell the dress needed more of a line waist and she would have been good to go.

    I believe Katy’s fine. Ok, maybe it’s a tad tight, but she prances around at her concerts in bikinis! So I think it’s pretty and I like that it’s not low cut or too short!

    i don’t think the dress is immodest, i think it’s okay, i just don’t like the ruffles… man i hate the ruffles. XD

    I think all of these are great, but I don’t Zoe’s dress is quite modest. It shows a fair bit of breast, and the layering at the breast highlights it.

    I can see how Zoe’s dress could be argued as a bit showy, but her hair sort of covered up her hair and her dress was very cobalt (bright blue) that it took the focus away from her chest. I loved seeing Katy Perry in a bright beautiful frock and Taylor always has something stunning on that’s not too showy. Kate Middleton is always a great example of a modest celebrity figure. But overall, Florence Welch of Florence + The Machine is my favorite modest celebrity. Sure, in her music videos she does sometimes wear what could be considered as a “swimsuit,” but truthfully, the swimsuits never show off her chest, and she’s known for wearing stunning floor length gowns and her unique but not over-the-top style.

    Tbh i think katy’s dress is alright(in the sense of modesty)you never know she might hv not seen it in another size and she really liked it and didnt want to substitute it
    I also think that we shouldnt be saying “oooh look at her dress is immodest and then putting it over the internet”
    (My opinion)

    I love Carly Rae Jepsen’s and Taylor Swift’s dresses! I would like Zoe Saldana’s dress more if the neckline was a little higher, and Katy Perry’s dress is a little tight. But other than that, they’re cute dresses!

  17. AlisonA_Music

    Posted by AlisonA_Music on December 7, 2012 at 18:18

    I think all the dresses are totally fine. So what if it’s a little tight fitting? She’s worn worse than that. All dresses and people are beautiful! 🙂

    A little tight for Katy.. 🙂 But overall it’s pretty cool!

    Thank you for doing these Modest is Hottest articles with two modest outfits and one much-needed makeover to top it off! I love seeing these! The first two serve as inspiration!

    I’m glad Taylor Swift chose a dress with wide horizontal stripes! They add some shape to her long and lean body.

    I don’t like Katy’s dress because I just don’t think it’s flattering, but I don’t think it’s immodest

    Taylor’s dress is so perfect (I’m not only saying that because she is my favorite singer)

    Personally, I don’t like Zoe’s or Taylor’s dresses at all. Just not my style. They look like they’re going to their kid brother’s graduation party, nothing too special. I think Carly and Katy nailed it. Their dresses don’t look like they picked them up at Target at the last minute.

    I think all of them look fabulous… including Katy Perry. She loves her body and looks healthy!

    I think Katy’s dress is one of her more modest ones! And I almost always LOVE whatever Taylor wears!

    I love Carly’s dress the best! I’m not the biggest fan of hers but she definitely is a sweet girl 🙂 My favorite actress, Katie McGrath, is almost always wearing the cutest dresses and I want them all! Here’s my favorite: http://images.starpulse.com/pictures/2010/02/22/previews/Katie%20McGrath-SPX-034200.jpg

      YA IM mad about her Cosmo thing too, its disappointing she used to be my role model, now she’s NOT!

        I was disappointed about the Cosmo thing too hugsnkisses 🙁 It doesn’t change the fact that I still look up to her though. She isn’t the one giving the repulsive advice and tips, she’s being interviewed. If I were her I would not have taken the deal. We all make mistakes. The only difference is that our mistakes are not publicized around the world 😉

    • Nellie

      Posted by Nellie on December 4, 2012 at 20:01

      Hers is actually my favorite. Although for casual use it may be a bit too low, but since it is more formal, many formal dresses are like that. I dont think that it is too low to be modest though, it is my favorite one on here, i just like the style of the skirt!! and the color its my favorite color!!

        Why is it our fault if men have lustful thoughts? Since when was it okay to blame somebody else for what one thinks? Pretty sure if the man can’t control himself it’s him who’s in the wrong, not the girl or what she decides to wear. ._.

      Posted by HurricaneMurphGirl on December 3, 2012 at 15:20

      I guess you and I must have come from very different backgrounds. To me, that doesn’t look like much cleavage at ALL! I mean, I would probably wear a nice white lacy tank-top underneath, but that’s just so that I could have a little more color on it…

      • Project Inspired

        Posted by SavannahBuenavista on December 20, 2012 at 10:37

        yeah, technically it IS a “little” bit of cleavage. but Cleavage is STILL cleavage and its enough for a man to look and provoke lustful thoughts. God never said a LITTLE bit of anything was “ok”.. with Him, its black and white. If boobs are made for our husbands, that means the whole area, AND our butts, should be covered.

        I agree, @hurricaneMurphGirl. I do not think she is showing to much cleavage! But it all just depends on who you are. I do not think that she was dressing immodestly. But, that is just a matter of opinion.

    I love all these dresses!!! They are sooooo gorgeous and Taylor’s is awesome! I like Zoe Saldana’s the best. Carly’s is a little tight at the top, but it is still modest. Taylor looks AMAZING!!! But, I would agree that Katy Perry’s is a little too tight! I mean, the style of it is SO cute and quite modest, it just is a little too tight and reveals a little too much underneath.

    I LOVE TAYLOR!!! And her dress. It is so pretty and modest, and she almost always dresses modestly. 🙂

  39. HurricaneMurphGirl

    Posted by HurricaneMurphGirl on December 3, 2012 at 11:48

    I like Ms. Sanalda’s dress the most. It’s so elegant and complementary to her figure without being immodest! And I really like the blue color with her skin-tone. I’m normally not a Swift fan, but Taylor’s dress is very pretty, and I love the way her lipstick goes with it. I’m not quite as big a fan of Carly Rae Jepson’s dress, but that’s just because it’s not really my style.

    I agree that Katy Perry’s dress is slightly too tight, but you have to give her some credit for not making the dress very short, or low cut. Some of her clothing choices are much less modest than this one. I’m not really a big fan of the color, but i really don’t think it’s all THAT bad as far as immodest goes. And really, if she wants to dress slightly inappropriately, that’s her business, not mine. I’m not judging her by her clothes…
