Fox News’ Jennifer Griffin calls for an end to the ‘glamorous’ dress codes that “disrupt our lives”
Fox News host Jennifer Griffin made a plea to the nation’s “glamor culture” to embrace “a less restrictive wardrobe” as part of an ongoing effort to end the “glorified” and “groomed” dress codes.
During an appearance on Fox & Busters, Griffin discussed the need to continue to “change the way people dress, but in a more elegant way,” as part the “Women’s Equality March” held in Washington, D.C. “I think that’s really a really great idea, and I hope people continue to change their clothes,” she said.
“We have a beautiful country, a great, beautiful world, and we want to embrace that.
And that’s what we’re doing.
We’re calling for more freedom and less restrictive dress codes.”
Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly also weighed in, calling the “fancy” and the “slightly tacky” dress code “disgusting” in an interview with Fox &amnt; Buster host Steve Doocy.
“What bothers me is when you see people dressed up and put on fancy clothes that have been designed to be more elegant,” Kelly said.
“[But] you see the ‘slightly’ tacky thing that people do that are, you know, sort of tacky and not classy.
They have these things that are tacky, they are a little bit silly, and it just seems like, you can’t really go wrong with that.”
But you don’t have to go to an expensive dress shop.””
You know, if you have a lot of money, you go to fancy hotels.
But you don’t have to go to an expensive dress shop.”
Kelly said that while she was not a fashion expert, she was aware of how the “pretty little dress” could be “really expensive.”
“And, you see how that works,” she continued.
“A lot of people think, ‘Well, if I have a dress that’s kind of expensive, I can afford it.’
But if you go into a dressing room and you have that dress and you’re like, ‘Wow, I need this to look more classy.’
You’re not going to get a dress like that.”
In her recent appearance on The View, Griffin said that her daughter, actress-singer-model Miranda Kerr, had said, “I would like to see more women dressed up.
I would like the whole world to wear a more formal dress code.””
If we don’t, we’re going to be like, oh, my God, what a waste,” she lamented.
“Because we’re gonna lose the beauty of the world, which is beautiful.
And we’re just going to see it in a way that’s just degrading and not cool.”
On Wednesday, Griffin also said that it was important for women to be able to express themselves without being “overly judgmental.”
“We’re supposed to be the little people, and to be judged, I mean, you’re supposed [to be] the little ones.
And it’s just kind of disrespectful and I think a little disrespectful to have to be in a dress,” she noted.
“So we need to be really thoughtful about what we wear, but it’s not a requirement.
And there’s nothing wrong with being comfortable with the way you’re dressed, I just think it has to be something that’s respectful.
And I’m really hoping that more women are wearing this dress, I’m just hoping that they’re doing it as casually as they possibly can.
But, you want to dress in a nice way, you wanna have a good time, you don`t wanna be a dress.”
