Alia Bhatt is flaunting her bra straps with a classy dress, and we couldn’t be prouder

first_imgLet us just put it out there, in the simplest of the words–women have breasts, and they wear bras to support them.It has been a constant struggle for women to hide their bra straps under broad-shoulder tops, or wear excruciatingly painful, skin-digging transparent straps with off-shoulder clothes, only because bra straps seem to bother people.With Alia Bhatt wearing a Dior gown, we recommend everyone to get comfortable with the idea of women wearing bras, and not hiding their proof anymore.Alia Bhatt made a winsome appearance at the GR8 Women Awards held in Dubai last night in an exquisite Christian Dior red strappy, pleated gown. She wore a bold-red lip shade and absolutely no accessories, because the stunning ensemble didn’t need any; the high bun she sported gave the look a rather classy appeal. Also Read: Alia Bhatt or Anushka Sharma? We can’t decide who looks better in these denim outfitsApart from how gorgeous she looked, there was something about her attire that blew us away. The red Christian Dior gown had its embedded bra straps visible, and it was deliberate.Slamming patriarchy in the face, the backless gown had the back bra-support strap showing too, with Christian Dior written all over.Alia’s attire is a reminder of how unfair it is for women to be told to hide their bra straps, when most of them have no issues with it showing. The beautiful gown was an example of progressive dressing, and we’ve never been so proud of Alia! advertisementAlso Read: What Parineeti Chopra wore is not something we’d want in our closets, everA man’s vest doesn’t cause any turbulence, but a woman’s bra strap has the potential to launch missiles of criticism, lewd comments and general looks of utter disrespect. So, thanks for a slap in their face, Alia.Kudos on starting a revolution, Alia. Now, let’s see how many others follow through.last_img read more
