Well Ain't That the Pits: Hairy Underarms Back En Vogue?

Can you believe that it's been ELEVEN YEARS since Julia Roberts stepped out with hairy armpits for the London premiere of Notting Hill? 11 years and it still gets spoken about. I guess because she's so high profile, as are Drew Barrymore and Hilary Swank, who's the latest celeb to be snapped with a little underarm fuzz at ELLE's 17th Annual Women in Hollywood Tribute on Monday night. I've gotta say, I'm all for power to the people and expressing yourself but I draw the line at body hair. At events. I get that you may have missed your waxing appointment if you're a regular 9-5-er but these are celebs who have the power, money and star power to get waxers, laser-ers and razor-buyers to come to them. I don't expect A-listers to be groomed to perfection every time they step out the door but if they've got a big party or a premiere on, as a woman, I always thought they'd want to look their best and I know that I would be FAR from my most confident if I had skipped shaving my underarms. But that's my two cents. What do you think? Are you glad that Hollywood women like Hilary and Julia are saying that it's OK not to be hair-free at all costs or should they step up their hair removal stat?

I agree. It's impossible to be completely hairless all the time, so a wee bit of stubble is ok, but if they don't have time to shave and end up letting forests grow under their arms they could at least try a minimizing deodorant.

Bah, it's just hair. Do we all always have hair-free armpits every single day? I sure don't and don't care about whether I've to go to work or not. Also, you'd never see Hilary Swank's hair unless sticking a camera in her armpits, and if someone wants to do that I guess it's their problem not hers..
