dego i don't know a whole lot of women who want to look like like prostitutes...

women want to look sexy while also looking classy...
looking like a hooker crosses the line and is not tasteful... it's vulgar

I remember seeing a magazine article about Trudie Styler not long ago (Bazaar??) that had shots of their home, including their bedroom, which she decorated to evoke ... I forget the term she used, cathouse? Huge Helmut Newton (if I recall correctly) blown up photo on the wall ...

It's not my fantasy, and it's certainly not something I would be saying for publication if I had relatively young children as she does, but ... I'm not sure it's such an uncommon fantasy. (In her case, perhaps catering to someone else's fantasy ... )

I was antiquing with a friend once when we came across these Venetian mirrors with red glass accents. We concluded they had been in a bordello at one time, and she really wanted to buy them and decorate a bathroom as a bordello. I was

But there you go. It takes all kinds.

I'm not into dressing sexy to begin with. If I did I think I'd prefer something subtle over something that could be associated with a prostitute.

No, honestly, I would like you to tell us all what a hooker looks like. So that we can avoid looking like one...

Just a reminder that the topic here is 'How to look sexy without crossing the line.'

Without being an expert myself, I'm quite certain that there's a whole range of 'professional' looks. Someone standing on a street corner looking for business is advertising, and someone attempting to get through a hotel lobby without being stopped isn't. So I don't think that question has a single answer ...

I have never been, uhm, approached by a possible costumer, but one of my friends has. It happens often, and she's sick of it. The thing is that she dresses a bit one the nude side, but nothing indecent, and certainly nothing that I could see would make her look like she's for sale. I'm beginning to think that men in general is the real problem - how many of us haven't heard some very unpleasant and rude things? ...and that is why, Dego, it isn't that nice being mistaken for a prostitute. In case you're wondering.

^True, men are the problem, the more I think about it the more I realize, there's many men that don't respect women & don't have any education. But honestly you just need to ignore that, you are superior than those stupid jerks.

And dego, I think you should choose better your words before making a comment

Also, women with the "hot" bod (huge thighs and boobs) have to watch out for too short outfits. Usually those go with skinny women only.

I actually find her very attractive, womanly, lively and most improtantly.. very confident! :p

i often feel like a bit of an alien when it comes to this 'what is sexy' question.. so many times i find something sexy while my friends find it boring or dull. i think the question of what is sexy to women and men is very interesting as well..

i guess all we can do is discuss where our own 'line' is..

here are a few images of outfits i find sexy..
i think i find subtle details sexy.. the kind that sort of make you wonder. i think that mystery, that hint of something you can't quite access, is really sexy.. like a woman in a man's shirt.. or not wearing a bra (if done well..of course, which i know many will say can't be done but i respectfully disagree!). :p


perfectchic.blogspot.com

i love the combination here of the loose tshirt with the more fitted skirt.. sofia coppola does sexy very well imo.. there is usually an element to her outfits that is a little bit risque while everything else is generally very pretty and even conservative. i also think the fact that she often wears very little makeup and wears her hair very naturally helps give her a really effortless, intriguing sexiness.. even the way she holds herself is sexy..


culturebully.com

charlotte gainsbourg in this crisp shirt is sexy to me too.. unbuttoned a little but not too much.. natural hair and makeup. actually the more i look at these images the more i think a person's body language is really important too.


thebaglady.tv

another good example, helena christensen. the dress is very short but the neckline is high, she has minimal accessories, her hair and makeup are both really natural and pretty, and the shoe is sexy without being too provocative. this is a more overt sexiness than the other examples but still, i think she is one of the few that can pull it off. i think the fact that everything is in natural, earthy tones makes it sexy without crossing the line. if it was red or even perhaps black, it might be too much..


theinsider.com, who's dated who

ashley olsen does sexy so well, both in her everyday style and her event style.. these are 2 of my favourites. the cutout detail in the first dress is amazing and stands on its own.. everything else - the hair, the length of the dress, the neutral makeup - stops it from looking trashy. the second one is great too.. lots of leg and a sexy shoe but everything else is really classic..


celebrity gossip

there's nothing to say here...SEXY SEXY SEXY..

ie- a younger (more hormonal) guy might think that outfit is too covered up...
but an older (more mature) guy might think it was sexy and stylish...
definitely !
young boys/men are all about flesh ! they need flesh !

I don't know how to describe it ... but I think sexyness is all in the attitude!

The way they talk, the way they dressed, the way they move, the way they make-up, the way they move their hair, what is their smell ... etc.

IMO, Sexyness (or is it sensuality that i am describing) has a lot lot to do with attitude !

I've seen a picture of Daphne Guiness around here ...
IMO, she's far from being sexy ! (I know everybody loves her ... I just don't - she's too much to me !)
And I've seen this picture of Giovanna ... The woman is very beautiful (and i love her), but I doubt what she's wearing on that particular picture posted is called sexy ...
Beautiful and stylish perhaps ... Sexy and sensual, not a finger !

The sexiest outfit to me is .... a white shirt (sort of tighten and enough transparency for the man to guess the underwear) ... a black pencil skirt, black stiletos ... on a dark haired woman ! geez ! sexxxy ! with the attitude !!!!!

oh and carine roitfeld's styling is pretty sexy !
- pretty often !


that's an interesting thread, anyway !
coz i think TONS of girls need to know what is this line they must not cross !
