Whither Boobage?

25 May

The long strapless black gown is a classic – sleek, sophisticated, beautiful. Look at Cynthia Nixon at the Sex and the City 2 Premiere in Carolina Herrera:

See? Gorgeous. I even like the little hint of a bustle ruffle (oh, bustles. So incredibly impractical (seriously, did women sit down? How?) but so awesome). But this photo also illustrates the problem with a simple black strapless dress – what if people don’t know exactly where your boobs are? I mean, they’re tucked away under a band of dark fabric – people might think they are almost any shape, or in any location. It would probably be a good idea to indicate their exact location and shape with something obvious like, say, sparkler targets made out of feathers.

Oh good, I’m glad Rachel Bilson got the memo.
