She sparked a debate on Twitter after commenting on the state of popular fashion while browsing through a style magazine.
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 😂😂😂— Ayesha Curry (@ayeshacurry) December 6, 2015
She said that she prefers to "keep the good stuff covered up for the one who matters," adding that she would take "classy over trendy any day of the week."
Just looking at the latest fashion trends. I'll take classy over trendy any day of the week. #saturdaynightinsight— Ayesha Curry (@ayeshacurry) December 6, 2015
This lead to a heated debate, with some women defending their rights to dress as they please.
Some took Curry's words as an opportunity to shame women who might not "keep the good stuff covered up" when that was not her intention.
Curry tweeted again hours later to clarify that her opinions were not meant to be used against women who disagree.
Regardless of if you like my "style of clothes" or not (which I don't care) please do not tear women down and degrade them... Not cool peeps— Ayesha Curry (@ayeshacurry) December 6, 2015
Sounds as if Ayesha Curry thinks her body/other women's bodies are like consumer goods marketed exclusively for use by men, or something.— felicia jean (@felicianista) December 6, 2015
