Don’t expect to see a lot of skin at this year’s Grammy Awards. CBS has put a rather strict dress code in place for the event in a likely attempt to avoid a serious wardrobe malfunction.
Deadline shared a memo from the network that described, in detail, what fashion is considered to be appropriate and what should be absolutely avoided.
“Please be sure that buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered,” the memo states. “Thong type costumes are problematic. Please avoid exposing bare fleshy under curves of the buttocks and buttock crack.”
The memo also included the statement, "OBSCENITY OR PARTIALLY SEEN OBSCENITY ON WARDROBE IS UNACCEPTABLE FOR BROADCAST."
According to the New York Daily News, the memo came from an employee in CBS’s standards and practices department and all of the information was a result of a conference call that took place this week.
However, a source told Daily News that, "It was never intended to be written down or emailed anywhere. It wasn't approved by anybody."
CBS happens to be the network that aired the 2004 Super Bowl with Janet Jackson’s infamous wardrobe malfunction during the halftime show.
