That's right, it's the moment you've all been waiting for: The third installment of Don't Show-cha Your Chocha!
First up, DSYC VIP (how ya doin' on acronyms so far?) Amber, who scouted out numerous celebrities engaging in high-risk, high-hemline behaviors. I have compiled her findings into the lovely Don't Show-cha Your Chocha collage below, which you're welcome to print out, frame, and hang above your mantle:
Kate Moss (the two photos on the left) is especially impressive. I mean, think of where you normally wear your belt. Now think of chopping off all fabric below said belt, and going about your daily life naked from the waist down. I salute her courage.
Says eagle-eyed reader Laura: I was browsing Active Endeavors, lookin' for a new summer dress to take on vacation, and there is chocha APLENTY, let me tell you. The worst offender:
God she looks uncomfortable. But I guess I would too if I was forced to employ some serious arm strength to hold the hem of my dress below my chocha while my photo was being taken for display on a hugely popular shopping website.
Says Claire: Ah yes, the artfully placed hand technique. Quite a popular one, or so I've heard.
I've often employed this technique when sitting down in a mini skirt, but when you have to use it in the standing position, you've got a problem.
Maya found these photos, in which the model is totally owning both high-risk ensembles, don't you think?
I think she deserves a standing ovation (standing, of course, to respect the fact that she can't sit down).
One of the old standbys for DSYC, American Apparel presents us with this...it hurts to say it...."dress:"
Says Tamara, who claims she's not good at being funny but is totally lying: This is probably one of the best examples I've seen. She's got the crossing-the-legs tactic, the casually-covering-the-crotch-region technique, and the "don't fuck with me, I'm concentrating" look all at once. All I have to say is props, mad props (for not.. y'know, showing it).
Couldn't have said it better myself.
And finally, I got an email from reader Bernie with the title, "Showcha!!! EXTREME!" and, well, homegirl wasn't lying:
Yeah, I don't think a comment from me is really needed here.
