The New York Post noted yesterday the trend of mainstream socialites, C-list celebrities in their own right, dressing tawdrier than porn stars. The irony of course is that one group of women is viewed as the crème of society, while the other lives their lives outside of society’s boundaries.
Sexy lingerie, obvious implants, fake tans and slicked on makeup are replacing Chanel and St. John as the preferred look for some members of the social set.
Paris Hilton, who reportedly flashed her breasts to Ron Jeremy at a recent Hollywood party, is credited with the craze among socialites for “sexy lingerie, obvious implants, fake tans, and slicked on makeup,” according to the Post.
Johnson & Johnson heiress Casey Johnson says she and her friends love to shop at Victoria's Secret for silk nightgowns to wear in places of dresses. The Post ran a photograph of Johnson next to a photograph of Wicked Girl Stephanie Swift - Swift's clothing was far less revealing.
The Post also reports that “gals like Jenna Jameson are tired of looking like trash, and starting to look more glamorous, like Nicole Kidman, Gwyneth Paltrow or, say, Natalie Portman.” According to the post, the fashion makeover of porn stars is a result of wearing couture dresses, reading style.com and looking less “plastic.”
"It makes sense to me that porn stars would want to wear Versace or Cavalli, because it is very sexy," says Serena Rees, owner of a lingerie store. "It's perfect porn-star fashion. But you're not going to see a porn star in Balenciaga or Chanel. It's too chic and sophisticated."
