Officially Over It: The Sparkly Nude Catsuit!

When Britney Spears shimmied and shimmered her way across the floor in 2004's awesomely groundbreaking "Toxic" video in a sparkly nude catsuit, she created a sartorial phenomenon that's still alive and well in 2012...and we're officially over it.



Remember this OMG moment? Eight years ago when this video debuted, it was provocative, sexy, and downright daring to plaster your nude body in juuuuuust enough sparkles to cover your naughty bits.

These days, it's a straight-up snooze. Yes gals, after seeing not one but two pop stars in sparkly nude catsuits at the Olympic closing ceremony (that'd be Jessie J. and Spice Girl Mel B.), we're declaring that we're officially over this once-wow-worthy outfit.



When Jennifer Lopez wore one to a New Year's Eve performance and then the MTV VMAs in 2011, we were kinda, "Seen it!" When Katy Perry jumped on the train, we were underwhelmed. Now that it's been spotted on everyone from Nicki Minaj to Pink, it's safe to say that the sparkly nude bodysuit is now considered, well, safe!



It would be one thing if every pop star in the universe were clamoring to wear an ultra-flattering sheath dress in a perfect shade of glow-inducing turquoise--lack of originality can sometimes be forgiven when you look gorgeous!--but we're talking about a glorified Ice Capades costume that hides nothing, ladies. This look isn't doing anyone any favors, y'hear? GLAMOUR
