A new study by Dr. Alfredo Gaitan from the University of Bedfordshire has revealed that women who wear “sexier” clothing are seen as more intelligent. Gaitan gathered 64 students with an average age of 21, and gave them two pictures of the same woman in two different outfits — one wore a low-cut top, mini skirt and jacket and the other donned a less revealing top and a longer skirt.
Not only is Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson Hollywood’s highest-paid actor, he’s also the “Sexiest Man Alive.” People Magazine crowned the actor with this year’s title, making him the first person of colour to win the award in 20 years. The only other men of colour who won the award were Denzel Washington in 1996 and Keanu Reeves, who has native Hawaiian and Chinese ancestry on his father's side, in 1994.
Naked is the new orange, black, pink, blue, white—you get the point. It’s in! It could be said that Kim Kardashian paved the way for figure-hugging, next-to-nothing apparel (especially on the red carpet), but the truth is that Jennifer Lopez and her glorious curves set fashion down this path many moons ago. At the 2000 Grammy Awards, to be exact. Lopez outdid even her own love of the naked dress, via a handful of her ten outfit changes at the American Music Awards , many of which were made of some variation of totally see-through material. Her parade comes at the end of the year in which the naked dress reached fever pitch—from Beyonce and Kim Kardashian at the Met Gala to Gwen Stefani onstage to barely there looks on Taraji P. Henson and one of this year’s biggest comebacks, Jada Pinkett Smith. It might have been the year in which Carolina Herrera said, “In life, there should be a little mystery,” after the string of near-naked ladies on the 2015 Met Gala red carpet, but it was also the year in which no one listened.

Model Edie Campbell kicked things off in a bomber jacket with a matching miniskirt that was two mere millimeters away from a potential indecent exposure. Some of the skirts even left the models fully exposed on one side — note to self, arrange for more Pilates classes stat! From the waist up, the aforementioned sun-kissed model, Maartje Verhoef, looked completely summer appropriate in a tank top worn under a belted gray asymmetrical dress. The look could have been a contender for a casual summer picnic or even the office if it weren’t for the sexy slash at the hip. Edie Campbell at the Anthony Vaccarello show.

“Obviously I’m a glamour girl. I love a full face of makeup,” Laverne Cox tellsYahoo Style’s Joe Zee in this episode of Style Sessions. “But there was a point, early in my transition, where I did not leave the house without makeup. It was my armor in the beginning.”
