Why imprison the skin at all?

from apes we came / to insects we return

in a naked state we arrive / in an unclad state we depart

but in the in-between time, we can’t live uncovered

the custodians of society will not permit that, at all

nor the apparel makers/fashion designers are going to let you go natural

celebrities always keep on pushing the limit — but, mind you, within a limit

total naked they’ll never go because the titiliating factor will not be there

the reporters won’t be able to pause the million dollar question:

“what are you wearing?”

because the question will elicit the same answer from all: “nothing”

instead of the present answers we currently get:


“Elie Saab”


“Jason Wu”

“Louis Vuitton”

“Tamara Ralph”

“Vera Wang”


“Zuhair Murad”

whatever little the actresses wore, only a few were pleasing

i.e., esthetically delightful to the spectators’ eyes and senses

Ciara’s front & back of the “naked dress” lacked the esthetic element

same is true of Janelle Monae‘s, the top portion

Alessandra Ambrosia‘s dress was not impressive either

Ashley Graham‘s both dresses were missing the beauty factor

Emily Ratajkowski was OK

Shay Mitchell, Halle Bailey, Jodie Smith, and Daisy Edgar-Jones were elegant
