Yup. Fashion tape is a total necessity.

I wear things low cut, not THIS low, but still, and several times it keeps the modesty when nothing else would have.

(One of ) the most ridiculous thing(s) about this outfit is the BIG ROUND BUTTON: BULLSEYE!

It's like, "My crotch is the only thing that's covered up, but I didn't want you to forget it."

Perhaps it is to show that she sometimes wears a swimsuit? Guess you've got to go easy on the bronzer when you're dependent upon adhesive tape to keep it all together.

Cher did this so well she took it to an art form - well, Cher, Bob Mackie and any other designers she worked with.

It has to be a challenge to figure out how far to go to capture the spotlight when your body is part of your business model.

It's a Versace dress and it put JLo's career in hyperdrive and the dress is now in the Grammy museum. It was so memorable it was spoofed by the boys from South Park who don't wear it quite as well, probably about something with body tape and chest hair!

edit: I just looked closer at that swimsuit print. I need to check my stash, I have something really similar.

She wore that to the Grammy's back when she was dating P.Diddy. She was trying to make a name for herself and boy did she. I hope she still has it because it was this dress that launched her career which has resulted in millions in income. So the question becomes, would you wear it for millions of dollars.

I'd wear it for free. Think of what you could do with that fabric after.

Too funny, lgrande!

I think it's a shame the way they run around half naked to get noticed--should be their talent that gets them noticed. It's kind of like the commercials that use sex to sell--if you have to resort to that, you probably don't have a good product. Do I sound like a prude??
