Ignoring the age-old adage about wearing white after Labor Day is Kate Hudson, who showed up at the "Glee" premiere in a stunning white tuxedo-style suit paired with a low-cut black camisole. The striking style brings to mind images of legendary socialite Bianca Jagger who was equally famous for her cache of sexy white ensembles. Undeniably, the white suit seems to be the go-to look when celebrities opt for cool sex appeal. Check out how these stars made the White Suit their own…
Rihanna - "A Clean Break (sort of)"
Rihanna may have gotta down and dirty with Britney Spears during her raunchy "S&M" performance at the 2011 Billboard Awards. But on the red carpet, she was cool as ice. Her crisp white Max Azria suit draped her lithe frame and was highlighted by the singer's bright red bob. But the look just wouldn't be complete without that severely plummeting neckline.
Taylor Swift - "Dress Up Day"
Taylor Swift's "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" performance on the 2012 MTV VMAs may have reeked of adolescent folly. But her red carpet look was far from teenaged. In fact, some deemed Swift's white suit a bit too severe for the playful awards ceremony. Perhaps her trim and tailored (very bad pun intended) suit was a subliminal nod to her newfound chumminess with the Kennedy clan.
Miley Cyrus - "Dress Down Day"
Some wouldn't really call what Miley Cyrus wore to the 2012 Billboard Awards a suit, per se; from a distance, the diminutive young singer appeared to have wrapped herself in a waiter's jacket after hopping out of the shower. But upon closer inspection, the Jean Paul Gaultier suit (with mini-skirt) made sense. Cyrus, determined to showcase her burgeoning womanhood, completed the outfit with some dangerous cleavage and sexy Bardot-inspired hair and make-up.
India.Arie - "Bohemian Zing"
"Brown Skin" singer India.Arie proved that the white suit isn't all about plunging necklines and audacious fashion statements. At Clive Davis' Pre-Grammy bash, she perfected the bohemian-chic look with a casual single-breasted suit and white tank. The matching head wrap and chunky bangles, completed her customized style.
Celine Dion - "Backwards Day"
Who can forget the serious backlash singer Celine Dion took in 1999 for her forward-thinking (or--backward thinking, rather) white suit which she wore with its lapels facing the rear? Topped off with a dramatic white fedora, the look ultimately received a mixed bag of results. In any case, Dion's imaginative take on the white suit revealed her daring streak and will forever go down in the Academy Awards' red carpet history.
