The Lockdown

We can all agree that J. Lo looks hot on the cover of eFashion Rocks. Corset belts are huge for fall, and in general we are totally in favor of them.

We can all agree that J. Lo looks hot on the cover of eFashion Rocks. Corset belts are huge for fall, and in general we are totally in favor of them. But we think the Dolce & Gabbana metal corset belt deserves a little bit of closer inspection. The corset itself has a somewhat problematic history in terms of women fainting and suffocating, but that doesn't bother us as much as the way the D&G belt references the chastity belt. And here's why: The lock and key on the D&G corset belt reminds us of how medieval knights would lock up their ladies in chastity belts to guard their purity while they went out marauding and plundering. We think this trend started with the recent resurgence in popularity of the Cartier love bracelets and the idea that locking someone down in a piece of expensive metal symbolizes commitment. But really, whose vision of sexy is this? --ALISON COOL
