Unlike Perez Hilton- I Really Like This Dress!

By .

Heck, it’s a free country where we enjoy free speech. And that’s a great thing!  So everyone is entitled to their opinion on how celebrities look, act and dress.

But apparently, on Twitter,  Perez Hilton slammed Ariana Grande’s dress that she wore to the Grammy Awards and she almost had a meltdown on the Red Carpet because of this.

And here is a photo of the alleged offensive frock-

Now as someone who regularly wears and makes a living selling clothing that looks similar to this,  I am well aware that there is a market for this look.  Just as there is a market for many other kinds of looks. That’s what makes fashion so interesting.  It’s a fun way to express your own unique self! There are many choices for many different tastes.  And I, for one, think her dress is classy, feminine and timeless.  It is refreshing to see a young woman dressed this way and I hope she continues to do so.  I think it makes an outstanding signature look and she could be a role model for women her age.   I am very tired of seeing the same old skin tight, cleavage and thigh baring outfits on young women, which,  IMHO,   just lacks imagination.

So, Ariana, please don’t stop dressing like this just because of someone else’s opinion!   If you love the look, own it,  and just ignore anyone who doesn’t like it.  It’s only an opinion after all.

What do you think? Do you like her retro look?

    Me too! As far as I’m concerned there’s absolutely nothing wrong, and a lot right, about wearing pretty, ladylike clothing.

    So do I, it’s immensely pretty, very figure flattering, charming 1950s inspired, and gorgeously feminine – all things I look for when picking out frocks myself.

    This is one of the best red carpet looks I’ve ever seen. I’d wear this in a heartbeat!
