Who wore it better, porn or Hollywood?

Who wore it better,  porn or Hollywood?

Recently, I had the pleasure of being on the red carpet at the AVN awards, the Oscars of the porn world. Whilst I was there to film coverage for another piece I was working on, I was surprised by something I did see. Whilst most would expect women to walk down the carpet bearing all but their never regions, the exact opposite was the case. Girl after girl strode along the media wall in covered designer gowns ( some even worse Aussie designers). If you ignored the words behind them that said “AVNs”, you would think you were at the Oscars or Emmys. Even the people running the red carpet and escorting the stars to media were straight from Hollywood. In a world where scrutiny surrounds these adult actors for what they do, it was the level of normalcy that was pleasantly surprising. But why shouldn’t it be this way? Just because someone has sex on screen doesn’t mean they don’t want to look their best? It also doesn’t mean that because they can be nude on camera that they want to be a bit more covered on a fancy special night. Just because they are porn stars does not mean they don’t care about fashion.

The irony is that only two nights later at the Grammys, many of the red carpet looks flashed more flesh than those of these adult stars. Not that there is anything wrong with expressing yourself the way you see fit, but it’s the comparison between these two different worlds that would shock many. We assume a porn start to be flaunting skin because of what they do and some would judge them for that. However, a Hollywood starlet can flash more and any criticism of her of that would be seen as anti-feminism. So of course, I took my selfie stick and iPhone and asked the adult stars not only who they were wearing but what they thought of this fashion myth of the red carpet at the AVNs.
