There has been a trend in Hollywood going back 10-15 years and perhaps because of the success of CSI Las Vegas and Law & Order SVU of not just crime fighting shows or cop shows, but shows like that which are very sexy and are the cast is very sexy. Very attractive with a lot of beautiful sexy women on it playing the roles of lead detectives and doing a lot of the hard dangerous work on the cases.
And when you look at their detective units where these people work at the office, there’s no such thing as Casual Friday, but instead they have Casual Everyday. Where the dressiest outfit for women there would be a pantsuit, but with boots instead of dress or business shoes. You’ll still see male detectives, sergeants, and lieutenants wearing business suits, but not so much with the women on these shows.
A common outfit for female detectives especially when they’re on the road and either questioning witnesses, suspects, or catching suspects will be a t-shirt sometimes long sleeve, but a lot of times short sleeve, with skin-tight denim jeans, maybe kaki jeans or cargo pants, with boots. Looking beautiful, sexy, and kicking ass as cops. Shows like CSI with Marg Helgenberger, Elisabeth Shue. Law & Order SVU with Mariska Hargitay and Kelli Giddish. True Justice with Meghan Ory and Sarah Lind. Saving Grace with Holly Hunter from ten years ago. The Mentalist with Robin Tunney and Amanda Righetti. Chicago PD with Sophia Bush and many other shows like that from this era.
A big part of this obviously has to do with style with boots and jeans being so popular now with women, along with staying in shape with women wanting to show their bodies off in a stylish professional way, but also because this look is so versatile and practical and women can wear boots and jeans to the office without looking too casual now. And because they’re playing not just cops, but detectives who are in a lot of dangerous situations where they have to not only catch suspects, but catch people who don’t want to get caught and have to physically confront suspects.
Beautiful both men and women in America like seeing women kick ass on TV and do it in a sexy way. The common female TV cop now is beautiful, sexy, and fairly young. Who is more than capable of defending herself who wears a lot of tight outfits which is what people want to see from their TV cops now both men and women. Gone are the days where TV cops were almost always guys and generally middle age guys who are always wearing business suits. Now the common TV detective both male and female are younger, very attractive, well-built, and sexy, because that is what the viewers want to see.
To say that NBC’s Law & Order SVU is ahead of it’s time, would be like saying that it gets hot in Texas especially in the summer or it rains in Seattle, well at any point during the year or it snows in Minnesota in January and hopefully you get the idea by now. ( God help if you don’t ) They were talking about issues back in 1999-2000 ( the first season of SVU ) 17-18 years before the so-called Me Too movement emerged in 2017. They were dealing cases as a detective squad about women being raped and sexually abused in other ways. As well as little girls and boys who are sexually abused by their parents and other adults in their lives.
The original Law & Order which I still get to watch every week ( thanks to Sundance and TNT ) is still favorite now just show from this franchise, but one of my favorite shows ever, especially from the 1990s and 2000s, but SVU is right up there as one of the best cop dramas on TV. Perhaps the best cop drama on TV right now, but I’m guessing fans of CSI Las Vegas would probably dispute that. Maybe they can get together on TV ( fans of both shows ) and debate on live national TV. I’m sure Bravo would be happy to broadcast that and it would be ultimate and perhaps even real reality TV show.
But on a less substantive note but still important the Olivia Benson character ( played by Mariska Hargitay ) is one of the first sexy female police detectives on TV. There’ve been beautiful, sexy, younger female law enforcement officers on TV before. Angie Dickinson was the original with Police Woman from the 1970s, Heather Thomas from The Fall Guy in the 1980s, Kelly Hu from Nash Bridges from the late 1990s and perhaps there are more.
But Mariska is the first from a trend that started in the mid 2000s or so where you would have beautiful, sexy women playing tough cops who kick ass on a regular basis and even kick male ass. They’re no longer playing secretary’s, receptionists or desk sergeants that just take calls and pass on information to the real detectives and their superiors, but working cases and getting into conflict and having to physically take on strong male suspects who could severely hurt them if not kill them if the female officer is not up to the task.
Mariska, is the first female TV law enforcement officer to where tight jeans and boots on the show on a regular basis while she’s working and not at home or having a rare day off, but working her cases in beautiful black leather jacket, black denims, and boots. She was doing that back in 2007-08 if not earlier and now every cop show has at least one if not multiple female lead officers who are beautiful, sexy, physically able to take care of themselves who work their cases in boots and jeans on a regular basis. Just watch CSI Las Vegas with Elisabeth Shue, or watch Criminal Minds with the attractive detectives there, Chicago PD with Sophia Bush, NCIS LA with Daniela Ruah and I could go on.
Mariska Hargiatay ( who plays now Detective Lieutenant Olivia Benson ) is not the first beautiful, sexy, sharp, witty, great cop on TV, she’s just the best cop with those qualities and that includes Angie Dickinson who I love as well and they’re now in their 20th season with apparently no plans to ever wind the show down and plan for a final season and not just because of how popular the show is and that it’s lead to over great cop shows like Chicago PD, but also because of how great the show is. How great the cast, storylines and everything else that makes cop shows great.
Gotta respect a guy who loves his wife so much and is so proud of her, that he would not just film her in public, but then put that footage out on public especially on a platform like YouTube, where a lot of other people would get to see her. And see how sexy she is and on the move like this. I guess you also have to respect or admire a woman, that has so much faith and trust in her husband, that she would be willing to show off not just for him, but for a lot of other people especially men to see her like this.
If you’re familiar with the adult entertainment websites Clips 4 Sale and DevilButts, you know about the female models there who are always wearing the same denim jeans. Always from the same brand that being Lee Jeans. And they’re almost always wearing ankle boots with those jeans. And all are very curvy with tight curves wearing short tight tops. They sort of look like country girls with their tight t-shirts or tank top, skin-tight jeans and boots, but these ladies are always wearing ankle boots. The woman in this video is wearing high boots with her Lee Jeans and a leather jacket, so she looks a little different from those other models.
If you’re familiar with this Seinfeld episode, you know that Teri Hatcher’s plays Jerry’s new girlfriend that he met at their health club. And one of the first things that he notices about her is of course is her how should I say, nice rack. And he tells his friends about her and they can’t believe that her breasts are real and feel the need to see them for themselves. And Elaine ( played by Julia Dreyfus ) agrees to be Jerry’s spy and she sort of follows Jerry’s girlfriend around their health club and into the sauna to see if her breasts are actually real or not.
What you see in this video is that it finally occurs to Sidra ( played by Teri Hatcher ) that Jerry not only doesn’t know if her breasts are real or not, but that he had a spy follow her around to see for herself if Sidra’s breast were real or not and that is why she walks out on him in his apartment. This was even before Teri Hatcher got the Lois Lane character on the ABC Clark Kent show about Superman. So she wasn’t a star yet in Hollywood or even a known name yet, but this is episode and break that made Teri Hatcher a star and has kept her working in Hollywood for the last 25 years.
At risk of sounding like an old man, I don’t get the women smoking in jeans fad. I get the tight jeans and skinny jeans part, but what is so sexy or awesome or hot or whatever about seeing a woman smoking regardless of what she is wearing? Especially since smoking “is like so not awesome anymore”. ( To use a valley phrase ) With so many Americans understanding the dangers of tobacco and the addiction part and not wanting to deal with the health affects of tobacco consumption later on in life.
Now as far as the woman in the video, again not interested in the smoking part. But a very attractive sexy woman in skinny denim jeans in boots. A classic look that is not going away anytime soon, not with women like this and with healthier and curvy women around and still coming up.
In the late 1970s there was a boom for dark wash designer denim jeans thats been with us ever since.
It’s by far my favorite tend with women’s fashion, because we go from an era even in the mid and late 1970s where women didn’t look like they were out West in the late 1800s or early 1990s wearing very long dresses and having to hold parts of their dresses when they walked, because they were worried about walking on their dresses and even tripping, but an era where women wore very baggy pants and were not expected to show off their legs at least with pants. And were bellbottoms and what were called in 1974-75 and even a little later and earlier flares. They were sort of like jeans, but not tight at all.
And then we end up in an era starting in 1978 or so with all these magazine covers, as well as movies and TV sitcoms and other TV programming where women are not only wearing jeans, but denim jeans, designer denim jeans, skin-tight designer jeans, where the jeans would go down only to the woman’s ankle so and would be real tight in the legs and hip area of the woman’s body. Where American women are now wearing jeans the way American men were wearing them on TV and in the movies since the 1950s.
Designer jeans that are simply designed to show off a woman’s legs and butt, to show off their curves and how beautiful and sexy they were physically. But in a stylish professional way where women could dress down their jeans with t-shirts and boots, or could dress their jeans up with nice jacket, blouse, as well as boots and could wear denim jeans to work or go out to dinner, go shopping and other places, or go to ballgames with their boyfriends or the movies in their designer jeans. And not look like they’re being over sexual or pornographic and have to worry about what more culturally conservative people thought about their tight pants and boots.
American women become liberated economically in the mid and late 1960s with the freedom culturally to not just go to college and get a degree, but then using that degree to get themselves a good job and enter the outside workforce and become economically independent from men. To the late 1970s and ever since where now they’re culturally liberated when it comes to fashion. Where it’s not only acceptable for them to be beautiful physically, have a beautiful body physically, but then have the freedom and courage to show the world that they have a beautiful body and are proud of it. Designer jeans from the late 1970s and early 1980s, to skinny jeans of today both denim and leather, as well as boots, are great ways for women to showcase their bodies and show people how put together physically that they are.
We go from an era in the early and mid 1970s, where American women weren’t supposed to show their legs and butts at all, really other than miniskirts and other skirts which is some cases can be more revealing for a woman’s lower body than tight denim, to an era where it was acceptable and in some cases expected for American women to not just wear tight jeans ( both leather and denim, ) but were those pants on a regular basis and in some cases everyday depending on what they did for a living and if they were involved let’s say in the fashion or entertainment business or just out running their errands and doing their everyday business like going shopping or their kids sporting events.
And it’s not just tight but skin-tight jeans especially denim but in some cases leather jeans like in entertainment and the fashion world, because not just popular but mainstream starting in 1978 or so with all sorts of American sitcoms now showing Americans women wearing skin-tight designer jeans on a regular basis and sometimes even every show with multiple women wearing designer jeans on the shows, but this movement in fashion for women just grew and grew. In the 1980s and especially 1990s, America women were seen everywhere in designer jeans and Levi’s in every possible environment on TV. Women were even seen at work in tight jeans like on cop shows, private eye shows, other action/drama shows. Like The Dukes of Hazzard, The Fall Guy and other shows. And this is a trend in women’s fashion that just keeps growing and will probably never go away.
A trend that started in 1978 that just kept going by the late 1990s-early 2000s, the dark wash skin-tight designer denim jeans that women started wearing and loving in the late 1970s, came back into style. Didn’t replace the Levi’s and Guess Jeans from the 1990s, but became an addition. Where you started seeing women in 1997-98 and into the early 2000s, wearing designer jeans that looked like they could be from 1979-80. But were perhaps even tighter and were more low-rise. Studded belts became mainstream on America women in the early 2000s and weren’t before that when only biker women and rocker women would wear studded belts for the most part. And you would see women wearing their studded belts with their low-rise designer jeans on a regular basis and everywhere.
We’re now in a skinny jeans era ( if you can call 8 years and era ) that started in 2005 where women not only wear skin-tight low-rise designer denim jeans, but can wear them in a way that shows off their butt and legs perfectly ( if they have nice legs and a nice butt ) but can do that in a way that doesn’t give away too much. The low-rider ass crack jeans ( as I call them ) that were popular in 2001-02 were replaced by skinny jeans that are still low-rise and skin-tight, but where women can sit down and stand up without showing off skin around their backside. And this is an era for denim jeans for women that will be around forever I believe, as long as sexy women are comfortable in them, like them, and enjoy showing off their legs and butts.
She’s not as good as her father, but most people aren’t, but she can sing. Elvis Presley wasn’t called the king for hell of it. I don’t see him as the King off Rock & Roll and could probably name ten or more rock artists are better, both solo singers and bands. But he had a great voice and some good songs and was a hell of an entertainer. His music was also different from his daughter Lisa Marie Presley. Elvis was a blues rock performer and at times played only rhythm and blues. He was sort of the Eric Clapton but a generation up from Clapton. His daughter Lisa Marie is more of a hard rocker, or even metal, perhaps a Goth performer (according to her outfits) and has a much harder edge to her music. She also has a great voice, but not being headbanger myself and fan of both classic rock R&B, for that alone I would give the edge to her father Elvis Presley when it comes to music. But to each his own and we are free to differ on that. But she’s good in concert and looks great and for that alone is worth checking out.
I think the guests that stick out with me from this video, are Paris Hilton. Because she’s only famous, because who her father is and a few failed so-called realty TV shows she’s been on and of course one of perhaps thousands of so-called celebrities that have done time in jail. And if you noticed Dave Letterman, there was nothing else he wanted to talk about with Paris. Why, because she’s not well-known for really anything positive and for any substance. She’s known as a heiress who probably lives off her trust fund from her father and has someone invest and manage that money for her.
The Joaquin Phoenix, is another standout. Joaquin, later apologized to Letterman for his appearance on that show. Hopefully he apologized for not bothering to shave, or getting a haircut, chewing the gum, the sunglasses, perhaps not bathing before coming on. Dave, was expecting to see Joaquin Phoenix and instead what they got was Jim Morrison’s twin brother from 1970. Some zen new aged hipster, who didn’t seem to have a care in the world, or know anything about anything that was going on in his life. Not the way you want to appear on national TV on The Late Show with David Letterman.
Heidi Klum, well because she’s Heidi Klum. Arguably one of the five best looking women to ever come from Germany, or be of ethnic-German descent. I like Steffi Graf and Catherine Bach, but that’s me. That whole setup looked planned to me and Heidi with the sense of humor that she has, probably planned the whole deal herself with Dave and Marty Short, being more than willing helpers with the so-called Heidi wardrobe malfunction. I believe that show was from 2007, just three years after the so-called Janet Jackson wardrobe malfunction at that Super Bowl.
Post-Johnny Carson, Dave Letterman to me is the best late night talk show host. And I think I like him the most because of damn straight candor. If he doesn’t have much respect for his guests, or his guests aren’t giving him much to work with and perhaps are acting like they want to be somewhere else, as you saw with Paris Hilton, who perhaps was late for her appointment with her dealer, or Joaquin, who looked like he just woke up from a ten-year coma, which would explain the shades and thick beard, Dave will let you know about it. Without actually telling you how he’s feeling.
If you think political correctness is bad now and I sure as hell do, then go back to the early 1990s. When homosexuals, especially gay men were just coming out of the closet and just starting to appear on national TV in reality and fictional programming. Whether gay men were queens, or lets say passable as straight and straight people didn’t automatically think they were gay from meeting them, or talking to them, the level of tolerance for homosexuality and gay life, was better than it was in the 1960s or so, but not to the point it is now. Where an overwhelming majority of Americans don’t have a problem with homosexuality. Simply because they know gay people and are friends with them.
I call this Seinfeld episode, the Not That There’s Anything Wrong With That show. Because that phrase is used a lot in this episode and that’s the basic point of the episode. What Jerry and George are saying, is that they’re not gay and want to make that clear to anyone who’ll listen, because they’re not gay and they sure don’t women and potential dates thinking that they’re gay. But they don’t have a problem with gay people being gay. “Its alright if Joe is gay, but I’m not and that lifestyle is not for me.” Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David, the creators and producers of the Seinfeld show, went to gay rights groups and showed them the show ahead of schedule, to get it cleared by them.
There are several things I like about this show as a straight man and as a Liberal whose a strong supporter of free speech and strong opponent of political correctness. Which I see as a form of Far-Left fascism. That they made it clear that there’s nothing wrong with being gay, when the country was still fairly split on that and this episode came out in February, 1993. Same-sex marriage, is nowhere near the political radar and you could still get arrested for being gay in several states. But another thing, is that they took on political correctness directly, when political correctness is still fairly popular in America. And where any joke against any women, or non-straight person, or non-Caucasians, was considered bigoted. Because the political correctness crowd, even sees, “not that there’s anything wrong with that”, as homophobic, even if gay people don’t.
The other thing that I love about this episode, is actress Paula Marshall. She’s a beautiful, baby-faced adorable actress, whose like 27 at this point and playing a college student a journalism major. And she’s the one who taped recorded Jerry and George in the diner talking to each other pretending that they were gay and were a couple. Which is really how this episode gets started. Because she ends up interviewing Jerry and George in Jerry’s apartment, about Jerry’s career. And has already written her article in her college newspaper saying that Jerry Seinfeld is gay. And Jerry finds out about that and goes out of his way the rest of the show to prove to her that he’s not gay. Including inviting her over to her apartment for a date.
For the first minute of this video I was trying to figure out whether or not Piper Perabo was actually singing. Or whether she was lip singing, or perhaps was wearing a secret earpiece and Leann Rimes was feeding her the words for her song.
Also, I didn’t know that John Goodman and Maria Bello spoke Spanish so well and were able to do it with Spanish accents. For the sake of this post I’m going with Piper was actually singing and say that she did a very good job. I could buy that, especially if I was rich because she does have a sweet voice and I could believe her as a good singer. With a lot of help from Leann Rimes who has one of the best voices in the business. And does a great job with a great song.
I could count on one hand the number of Leann Rimes songs that I like and not need all the fingers. I’m not a fan of country or country pop. Country rock I could listen to, but Leann has a great voice and would love to hear her sing to classic rock or R&B. She has a great voice for both.
