Good Enough Mother says YES! There is a line that just should not be crossed and while tooling around online, I found it.
Here’s 42-year-old Cuban actress/singer Niurka Marcos on the red carpet – with her son!
I get that Niurka is proud of her figure but I think there comes a time, and dare I say it, an age, when flaunting it to this degree just makes you look like you’re working the midday shift at Centerfold’s. There are so many things wrong with this look, I’m not even sure where to start.
THE BARELY THERE DRESS: Tacky with a capital “T”. Too much sparkle and not enough fabric.
THE STOMACH: Yes, it’s flat and probably took Herculean effort to get it, but it looks bizarre. A little bit of pooch could be a good thing.
THE NAILS: AGH!! Wow.
THE KID: He is the youngest of her three and I admire the fact that he is posing there with his mama, but you gotta wonder if secretly, deep down, he is wondering if his mom would just wear something that didn’t make her look like a 20-year-old streetwalker.
Now I’m not advocating we all opt for mom jeans and tennis shoes (no, no, NEVER tennies with jeans – unless you’re gardening) but is there a line that should not be crossed?
Would you ever – even if you could physically – wear this?
Would you pose with your kid in it?
