I’m a fan of LeAnn Rimes cheeky chain-smoking, beer-guzzling pregnant bride costume. The country singer and her husband Eddie Cibrian—in camo pants and a perfectly-redneck barbed-wire temporary tattoo—certainly trash up well.
Given Rimes’ country roots—plus the media scrutiny she’s recieved over everything from her weight to her relationships (she left her first husband for Cibrian, who was also married when the two met)—choosing to dress up as a bad news bride makes me think Rimes has a good sense of humor about things. Plus, you’ve got to admit—she’s got the hair down (also: Hello, Instagram; stars—they’re just like us!).
Anticipating the backlash she might receive, Rimes tweeted:
“Let’s put up a disclaimed right now… WE DO NOT condone anything that has to do with our costumes! All in fun!’
It’s funny that celebrities feel the need to preemptively defend any decision that’s not 100% politically correct. As far as objectionable costumes go, Rimes and Cibrian’s ensembles are hardly terribly risque. [I mean, apparently, smoking brides are all the rage in stock photos.]
What do you think?
Sorry! This poll is now closed.
