LETTER: Celebs should reflect society

2016-06-23 06:00

The recent debate about what celebrities wear to the SAMAs has caught my attention.

No one has the right to control what celebrities wear, but more maturity is required from famous people.

What do their children say when they see their mums dressed in revealing clothing? Boity recently caused an unnecessary social media stir when she wore a dress that left little to the imagination. When she dressed up for the SAMAs, what did the mirror say?

Whether what we saw was a shadow or not, the entire scandal could have been avoided if she had dressed modestly.

A less revealing dress would have saved her a lot of time and explaining.
