There's nothing shameful about women's sexuality; what's shameful is the expectation that that's our main worth, as long as it's tightly controlled.

And it's very interesting that sometimes there aren't only misogynistic men, but also misogynistic women. There must be some kind of self-hate around if women start saying that the female body is something that has to be covered as if it was something dangerous. Come on people, that is a hollywood event and not burqa day.

Yes, Jaimnie got the attention she wanted. That's what the show business is all about - getting attention. What's wrong with that?

Well she showed a lot, if she wasn't worried about that then more power to her I suppose.

And frankly given she's in the movie for barely 5 mins it doesn't surprise me it all she'd do something like this. From what I recall she said in an interview a while back Sif was suppose to have a substantial part in Thor 2, well that clearly didn't plan out. So in the course of a couple days she's had publicity linking her to Wonder Woman and now a head turning dress at the premier. It's like someone wrote, Natalie who? That's part of the Hollywood system. At least she's not getting drunk and stumbling out of a nightclub with her lady bits in full view to the world.

I wrote that.

Well she did show her lady bits pretty much in full view to the world. But hey, so did Anne Hathaway in a crappy DTV b-movie. And she won an Academy Award.

Honestly, I think WB and Wonder Woman stuff is BS that she's just floating out there to build some buzz up about herself. But once again, due to the culture of the internet people everywhere especially these forums will eat up anything even the stuff that is flagrantly false.

Well it's a case of mission accomplished then. I don't see why suddenly people are having issues with it when its been done for years.

jmc, people having issues with it part of the mission accomplished. Because they are talking about her and giving her attention.

Meh. She's free to wear what she likes but then I'm free to think the dress she is wearing is too revealing. Any dress that shows your crutch from certain angles is too revealing. There's no arguement about that, surely?

Jaimie has the looks and the bravado to pull off wearing that dress and at a première no less, I say good for her...

Some of the responses on here have been somewhat vitriolic to say the least.

If you don't like her look, skip past it and move on...

Personally, I'm not offended by it. She is beautiful woman and worth a glance or two.

You'd think but here people are using 'Feminism' to excuse someone showing their public mound in public. There is sexy and there is too much.

As for **** shaming. Is anyone discussing Jaimie's sex life? Because that is what that means, insulting women for having a lot of sex where men would be praised

What the hell is 'too much'? Sorry, but there's a sense of prudishness in some of the comments here. No doubt many of you are quite happy to watch an actress get her gear off in a movie but wearing a daring dress in public is apparently going too far.

I find it curious that you think you know what is too much.

This discussion all ties back into the discussion that took place a month ago or so. It got sidetracked because some people couldn't look past the concept that spawned the discussion but there certainly is something interesting how people react so much more negatively to hints of sexuality than to displays of violence.

It's not even my preferred kind of dress, but I have no issues with her wearing it.

I guess I'm just not that into avante garde dresses and prefer the glam of old Hollywood gowns more. It's fine Jaimie wants to wear a dress like that if she feels comfortable in it and it was her personal choice. Me personally, well I posted images of what I'd have chosen at a function like that. I prefer the dazzle of intricately embroidered stitchwork designs on a corset type dress as opposed to sheer cloth. That's just my opinion and there's no need to get all huffy about it, just agree to disagree and everything is fine.

Really? You can see her crotch and ass crack. It's too much.


How many of you defended Paris Hilton and Britney Spears when their crotches were photographed getting out of a car? Exactly. This isn't about defending Jaimie's dress, you wouldn't care if she showed up naked. And give me a break about this whole "women are catty and judgemental" business, we know that only some women are allowed to wear dresses like that. If someone who you didn't find attractive was wearing it, I bet this discussion would be totally different.

Maybe she should have at least been wearing flesh tone undergarments to suggest nudity or at least a flesh tone thong to cover up her feminimity? *shrugs* That would have been my polite suggestion if I were critiqueing her outfit for her.

Showing your privates in public to adoring pap photographers. Too much.

Have we entered a bizarro world where it is OK to show your pubes to the unsuspecting crowds? Don't people get arrested for that?

Put it this way, she's wearing more than some women AND men in Bathing suits that barely cover themselves.
Besides if she WERE nude I wouldn't allow the pics to be posted

That's because some of the pictures are censored.
Like here:




And here:




I found a picture where her crotch is clearly shown. I won't put it here because it's clearly nudity.
