Swimwear Becoming Acceptable Eveningwear

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Eva Longoria’s appearance in a one-piece bathing suit at the MTV Video Music Awards earlier this week wasn’t a desperate cry for attention, it was a bold statement for the future of fashion.

At least that’s what the bathing suit’s designer thinks.

Shay Todd admits she never envisioned the suit as “eveningwear per se,” but thinks Longoria is helping to prove that swimsuits are for more than just swimming.

Paris Hilton did the same thing when she wore one of Todd’s one-pieces to wash a car in the infamous Carl’s Jr. commercial.

Naturally, Todd is thrilled women are “taking it to the next level,” especially because “the one-piece got kind of lost for a while. People thought of them as dowdy.”

Despite the budding bathing suit in public fad, Todd does think there are limits. For instance, she says it’s probably not legal to wear a thong in public, but adds, “I don’t think anybody would call the police.”
