I know I’m going to flack for this…but, after a certain age, women should wear hose. Not necessarily from looking at these photos, but lately, I’ve seen photos of women with wrinkled, baggy knees and lumpiness, that just isn’t flattering. There are hose out there that are very sheer, and would even out the tone of the legs.
In Toronto it is either too humid (humidex up to 40 degrees) or too cold (wind-chill of -30) with very little time in between to wear hose as you suggest. I do think if people wear their skirts to their knees it does not offend those with your sensibilities. However, I think it would be even better to challenge and perhaps alter what you find beautiful. There is no moral, legal or indeed aesthetic reason for humans of any age to show legs or bare arms.
Surely shows there is never one way to dress for a fashion show. I vote for Girl #1 – gorgeous hair and looks so cool and comfortable as opposed to Lady in Tight Red Dress who looks good, yes, but very uncomfortable!
Giovanna, Giovanna, Giovanna, the Woman in Red … she’s just so …. ssssigh … I mean, she is JUST so – (grasps for the right adjectives) …. I – …. guh … I mean … (with limp hands, Liz gestures, wordlessly, helplessly, unable to articulate her fanaticism for all things Giovanna ……)
