Ayesha Curry is in the middle of the same social media firestom that Tia Mowry found herself in a few months ago, when the actress tweeted about how she likes to dress modestly and not scantily or revealingly. The Sister Sister star shaded Nicki Minaj in the process.
Curry expressed a similar sentiment Saturday, tweeting, “Everyone’s into barely wearing clothes these days huh? Not my style. I like to keep the good stuff covered up for the one who matters.”
Just like Mowry’s tweet, it reads a little as if Mrs. Stephen Curry is on her high horse. I’m sure there’s something to be said for how both women are married mothers and, thus, are at a stage of life when they’re gravitating toward conservatism.
They are, of course, entitled to their own opinions, but it’s one thing to broadcast your choice of attire, and another thing to insinuate that women who dress more revealingly are showing off their “good stuff” for people who don’t matter.
Our fashion styles evolve. Mowry herself confessed that her style changed when she became a mother.
Some people on Twitter weren’t too pleased with Curry’s tweets and rang the feminist bell, arguing that women have the right to dress however they feel, and that doing so doesn’t mean they value their bodies any less or are getting dressed to impress other people—particularly men.
