We don't want to go there again, but we bravely will.
Let's take a close look at the photos of 3 sensational, talented singers:
Jennifer Lopez, 2010, Dick Clark's Rockin' New Year's Eve Party.
Fantasia Barrino, last night, American Idol Finale.
Chaka Khan, last night, American Idol Finale.
All three ladies are wearing skin-tight and unforgiving catsuits. And as famous and celebrated as they are with stylists and makeup/hair pros always with them, a major fashion faux pas can still happen for the entire world to see.
American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez has one of the fittest, curviest bodies in Hollywood, but just 2 years ago at age 40, even she could not pull off the bronze-colored diamante-studded catsuit! Meow!
And you couldn't tell this was a woman with one of the sexiest rear ends around. The head-to-toe spandex made her butt look flat and sagging, her belly appear flabby, and we know that isn't the case.
If you're gonna don a skintight, see-through catsuit, and perform on live TV under harsh stage lighting, you better pray your body is in the best shape it can be, because people will be watching and talking, and blogging about it the next day.
This brings us to Fantasia and Chaka. Even their incredible vocals could not hide the fabric they were performing in on the stage. The catsuits were distracting and too darn tight!
A jumpsuit would have been a much smarter and more stylish choice for these lovely women. Instead, Fantasia and Chaka 'painted' themselves into these unattractive head-to-toe spandex onesies.
Fantasia is 27 and Chaka is almost 60.
Okay, we are going to give props to Chaka for looking so fab at 59, and she has since dropped a lot of weight. Congratulations!
Still, a catsuit is really only meant for the super tall, super slim body. Period. Someone like country star Taylor Swift could rock this unforgiving style and fabric.
What do you think?
Would a jumpsuit have been a better option here?
