CBS sets Grammy Awards dress code

A wardrobe advisory sent by CBS to Grammy attendees this week had members of the press screaming for joy.

 It’s not often they get to talk about “bare fleshy under curves of the buttocks” and “bare sides or under curvature of the breasts” under the guise of “breaking news.”

But that, and lots more where that came from, is included in the network’s “Wardrobe Advisory” first leaked to Web site Deadline.com by a snippy source who complained, “I assume that my lovely colleagues do not get this same email for the Oscars.”

 But if you’re worried that CBS’s memo is going to wreck your Grammy-viewing fun on Sunday, rest easy.

 CBS says that it sent the same fashion-guidance memo last year before it broadcast the live music-industry trophy show.

 And last year at the Grammys — when not mourning the previously night’s death of Whitney Houston — Fergie was posing in black bra and briefs under a bright orange see-through lace Jean Paul Gaultier gown. Which apparently got a thumbs-up from the CBS Grammy Decency Police.

 That said, there’s no doubt that the press will critique this year’s Grammys outfits against CBS’s leaked dress-code memo, in which “thong type costumes are problematic,” and “foreign language on wardrobe will need to be cleared.”
