Way to go Candace! You are truly beautiful. People should remember that
'True Beauty' (and great dancing) are not based on how much skin one
shows. Call me old fashioned, but I remember the BYU ballroom dancers who are
so well respected in the field of ballroom dancing, and not once were they
dressed immodestly. Their dancing is beautiful.Candace has already
shown she's a good dancer. But more importantly, she has stood up in the
sweetest and politest way, not putting anyone else down, but rather simply
stating she's choosing to have modest costumes. What a great lady. I
hope she goes on to win this year.
@ scorsiHonestly, I'd rather have the guys who were into SI.
In other words, normal guys.
If she wanted to show her kids the importance of doing new things, then agreeing
to do DWTS is NOT the way to go. She could have chosen so many other new things
to try. Doing this show is for her own gain and celebrity status. We all know
this show is about the costumes, celebrities and the drama of the scores. She
may say her outfits need to remain modest, but we will see what modesty means to
her. Her definition of modesty may be and probably is, very different than what
LDS members consider to be modest. For example, the picture of her in this
article is with her wearing a sleeveless outfit. This is considered immodest by
LDS members. However, the comments made on here don't seem to address the
outfit in this photo. Also, many celebrities buckle under the pressure of the
producers of popular TV shows like DWTS. I wouldn't be surprised if her
outfits become less "modest" as the season progresses.
ok, I understand what everyone is saying, but you definitely have to take into
account that, while she is Christian, she is not Mormon. However, that being
said, she is standing up for what she believes is right and big props to anyone
who can do that, no matter who they are or what they believe. In the world we
live in, it is so difficult to be a person who doesn't follow the crowd.
Bravo to her.
to BYUalumWhat if they are Zoroastrians, Catholics, or worship the
flying spaghetti monster?
Candace seems level headed unlike her brother.
I'm LDS, and I have to roll my eyes at the "modest is hottest"
campaign. Like others on this thread, I agree that modest is not hot. Sexy is
hot. Modest is classy. There is a time and place for both. I would just prefer
people keep sexy for their spouses in private quarters.And again,
there will be cultural differentiation--what's modest here is still obscene
in the Middle East, and what's normal in other countries(such as exposed
breasts feeding babies, bare shoulders, etc.) is considered obscene by many
I hope her example will be followed by future dancers. I consider the show
nothing more than pornography set to music.
Modesty is Hot !
I'm glad she's sticking to her guns. My wife LOVES that show
(she's a former dancer) and I often look at the women's costumes and
think "YOWZA!" They definitely get my attention.BTW, what a
cutie she turned out to be. Kind of funny to see her "little" sister
from the TV show be taller than her now. The pic of her husband and kids is
adorable. What man or woman does not want deep in their heart to have a family
Bravo for modesty and all that, but, much as I admire Camerons desire to remain
modest, did you see what she was wearing for her first dance? Her partner, Mark
Balas was lifting her and she had nothing more on than the equivalent of a
swimsuit bottom. And I'm not talking 1920's swimsuits either. Great
Two for flinching: So would you want the guys who are looking at the sports
illustrated swim suit issue dating your daughter, sister, mom, or someone who
thinks modest is hottest.
Two for Flinching is spot on.Modest is not hottest. It's a
clever term people say to others to shame them into thinking that bare shoulders
or thighs are naughty if other people see them. There is nothing
wrong with finding a person's body is attractive and there is no need to
cover up neck to toes, or even neck to knees. The whole idea of
modesty is completely arbitrary. What most women in Utah wear would be
considered quite immodest in some countries.
@ cougar76That's great, but here in the real world that is
simply not true. For example: The Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition is by far
their most sold magazine every single year, and it's not because the girls
are wearing sweaters.....
Love it that she was up front about it, looked darling in her costume, and
doesn't let the world lead her!
What's truly ironic is the fact that persons like Chris B would find the
article ironic. I find it refreshing that a wife and mother thinks more of her
family than the opinions of fashion minded individuals who think saving material
and exposing skin is the preferred alternative to dressing modestly. I started
teaching my daughter modestly the day she came home from her birth at the
hospital. She's now a wife and mother and never did I see her wear
anything immodest, including days at the beach in Hawaii where she and her
female cousin wore attractive one-piece swimming suits.
@ Two-for: Modest is hottest. There was a Happy Days episode in which the boys
were looking at a girlie magazine and Potsie says "Can you imagine what she
would look like in a sweater." Always best to leave a little to the
Loved her comments! Very well put together young women. Hope others will
listen to her.
It makes my day to realize how well-off she's become, particularly next to
the consequences the younger children from Full House face now.
I am so glad to see her stand up for what she believes and not be afraid to
speak out. She loves her family and not only is she a great example to them but
to everybody. Way to go Candace, you have my vote :)
Modest is not, nor has it ever been, hottest. However, it's her life and
she can wear whatever she wants.
Yay - I like that she is standing up for what she values, marriage, family and
faith! We need more people like her in the world!
I wish those two young blondes from Provo and American Fork who dance
professionally on the show would show the same dress standards.
Good Woman example!!
Good Example !!
Modest is hottest.
Good for her. I wish we had more people that would stick to a higher standard
