Nicki Minaj Breaks The Net In Her Jibbitz Crocs

Minaj has such star-power influence that her post saw Croc sales rise by 4,900 % and caused the shoe brand’s website to shut down. While the phrases “pink Crocs” and “Nicki Minaj Crocs” instantly became trending searches on Google.

Miley Cyrus & The SNL ‘Boob Shirt’

Yes, we’ll concede that the attention this time wasn’t on some wonderful latex mini, but surely we celebrate Miley’s ‘boob shirt’ as well as her for wearing it.

Remembering Tempest Storm

As 2021 speeds by, we are as much considering the big questions, like where COVID-19 is taking us, to small, who is wearing what specific piece of latex couture, and how well they might be wearing it.

Billie Eilish Rocking Lingerie, Latex and Body Positivity in British Vogue

But what it seems Eilish wants to portray most, as has always been the case for her, is body positivity. As she relates in the interview alongside these shots: “My thing is that I can do whatever I want. It’s all about what makes you feel good. If you want to get surgery, go get surgery. If you want to wear a dress that somebody thinks that you look too big wearing, f*** it – if you feel like you look good, you look good.”

Honoring Joye Hummel Murchison Kelly

As to be expected, we love it when some latex outfit, or a cool piece of wardrobe makes a cultural statement.

2021 GRammy’s Couture

The NCOSE said that Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s performance of “WAP” at the Grammy’s “….could have been cut from a hardcore pornography film” and also “…contributed to the sexual exploitation of women by glamorizing prostitution and stripping.” Maybe they didn’t like the huge stiletto on stage or the bed, or what Cardi and Mega Thee Stallion did on that bed.
