The White-T, simply sexy
Hollywood's hottest show us how it's worn
Is it the color, bright and bleached, that looks fetching on every skin tone? Or the fabric, a soft, touchable material that begs for close, human contact, by both its owner and its admirer? Maybe it’s the fit, skin-tight and clinging to every curve of the body in the most provocative way?
Could it be its shreadability—don’t get us started on how seductive a ripped t-shirt looks hanging off a hot body. Or is it best in its most famous state…wet? Millions of contests have been won by women with amble breasts and men with muscular torsos peaking through a soaked white-t.
It’s undeniably erotic and perhaps one of the most revered and photographed fashion pieces in the last 100 years. In fact, the White T-shirt will be featured in an exhibition beginning in October at the Museum of Modern Art entitled, Items: Is Fashion Modern?, exploring 111 articles of clothing and accessories that have influenced our world in the 20th and 21st centuries.
To celebrate it’s still powerful effect on the viewer, here are sixteen images of some of Hollywood’s coolest rebels (with a cause) donning the classic top. From Marlon Brando to Madonna, from Justin Bieber to Emilia Clarke, all are stunning. And we think the white shirt suits them…to a tee.
