Sharon Stone Points the Way in Paris

Posted on July 02, 2012

One time, many years ago, right around the time Basic Instinct was just beginning to get pre-opening buzz, Tom found himself walking down a Beverly Hills street when who should he come upon but Sharon Stone, dressed head-to-toe in white (pencil skirt, blouse, sandals, and white-framed sunglasses perched on top of her head), just like the character in the movie, chatting with someone on the sidewalk. Tom didn’t quite know who she was but couldn’t take his eyes off her. And when she glanced over at him and smoothly moved her  sunglasses down to the bridge of her nose without ever missing a beat in the conversation, he knew he was looking at a star.

Tom learned two valuable lessons that day; one, that some people just have that innate star quality; and two, that you shouldn’t stare at them because they’ll make you feel like a tool (and rightly so).

And while Sharon still has that star quality…

Sharon Stone leaves the Ritz hotel and heads to the Dior Boutique in Paris.

… we can’t help wishing someone had stared at her long enough to get her to put a bra on that day.

    Clearly, she just came from the beach and threw on that schmatta until she gets home where she can put on real clothes and do her hair.

      but it’s ruined by the headlights...DailyFindJobPosition1.notlong.com

  • alyce1213

    She gets very frisky in Paris.  Did you see pictures in her sheer underboob shirt?  Even worse than this.

  • lovelyivy

    BUT the real question is WHERE did she get that purse, and where on the internet can I go to drool over it?

    • dress_up_doll

      I know, right? That purse is insane! Gimme!

    • hms71263

       I’m not sure if it’s a  current bag, but it’s Dolce and Gabbana.  There are some close up shots of the tote on the Style Bistro website, and you can read their logo in the back corner.

      • lovelyivy

         Thanks! Now I know which store to go for next time I feel like doing my best ‘poor urchin at the window’ face while window shopping.

  • MilaXX

    Agreed. This could have been a nice day look, but it’s ruined by the headlights.

  • howdoilook

    Meh, nips aren’t a huge deal in Europe. Or really anywhere but America.

    • alyce1213

      They pretend they’re not, but everybody still stares, so . . .

    • http://profiles.google.com/marteani Barbara Guttman

      BAH!  Nipples!  They happen!  Not everyone wants to wear the armored fortress bra to make it seem like you were born without them.

      • alyce1213

        Armored fortress bra?  Where are you shopping?

        • http://profiles.google.com/marteani Barbara Guttman

          Any soft-cup bra or padded bra is simply too much material, especially in summer.  I don’t need to be wearing styrofoam cups over my breasts.  I want support, not “help.”

          • alyce1213

            I couldn’t agree more. I never wear soft-cup or padding at all, even in winter. I hate sweaty boobs. But there are other options for well-constructed bras – so much is in the stitching, underwire, etc. Wacoal, etc.
            I just thought armed fortress bra was a funny concept.

          • JosephLamour

            I’m imagining a lot of straps. And parapets.

          • http://profiles.google.com/marteani Barbara Guttman

            I’d imagine if your greatest concern is whether or not your nipples show, adding parapets is counter-productive.

            You’ll want crenulated cups with hidden mortars and maybe a moat.

          • JosephLamour

            LOL. No gators in that moat, however.

          • http://profiles.google.com/marteani Barbara Guttman

            Depends how low cut the top is, you might want the added defense.

          • JosephLamour

            I think I would like to host a morning talk show with you. 

          • Sweetpea176

            And flying buttresses.

          • Aurumgirl

             All my bras feel like armed fortresses.  Every last one.

          • MoHub

             Hooray for Wacoal!

    • ormaisonogrande

       Really? Specifically where in Europe are you referencing? Because in Italy they sure are.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=751285857 Sally Brownson

        I think she means that they aren’t considered scandalous. When I went to Italy, all the mannequins had protruding nipples, so it’s hard for me to believe that they’re as censured there as they are here.

    • BazoDee

      Yep – We have have cleavage pushed up and enhanced or necklines plunged to drive through, side boob and under boob too. But noooo we can’t have nips! 

  • deltabronze

    I like the shoes, but the Omar the Tentmaker dress is just odd.

    • formerlyAnon

       Bless you. Haven’t heard anyone use “Omar the Tentmaker” since my dad died.

      Though I think it’s a lovely poolside coverup/short kaftan. If I were rich and Extraordinarily Well Preserved, I’d probably think nothing of wearing such to dash between the Paris Ritz & the Dior boutique.

  • amf0001

    love the shoes but that really is beach hair

  • PinkLemon

    shame. that’s a cute muumuu…

  • Jessi03

    Yeep!  No one told Sharon that when you wear your tablecloth of choice, you MUST wear the proper foundation garments!

    • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

      Obviously she’s paid some plastic surgeon enough money to not HAVE to wear any foundation garments, but that doesn’t mean she SHOULDN’T wear them.  As MK says, slutty, slutty, slutty!

      • Sweetpea176

        50-something years old and look at those girls all perky. *jealous*

        • BerlinerNYC

          It’s borderline-tacky, but whether or not they’re real, they’re spectacular.

  • http://twitter.com/katshimmers Kat Wright

    Hideous

  • moppet

    Showing her nips was the point (heh) of this dress. I think that her goal was to have people stare and also to to have people think how perky her breasts are for a woman of her age (and they are indeed perky). That’s certainly not how my nips look. So, mission accomplished Sharon Stone! 

    • HomeOfficeGirl

      Agreed – I’m sure she DID look in the mirror and this was exactly what she was going for!  Nutjob!

    • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

       Yup – those breasts are mesmerising. If I were going to a meeting about a role where the other people up for it were younger than me, I would wear this.

      • moppet

         I have no doubt she gave them a little tweak before she got out of her limo.

  • http://twitter.com/melo_jelo melo_jelo

    I’m sorry, but what you wrote about Ms. Stone’s outfit didn’t make sense. All I see is “nipples nipples nipples, and nipples sunglasses. Ms. Nipples nipples nipples nipples, ha ha! Nipples.”

  • RzYoung

    Hee hee great anecdote. 

    I ate in Wagamama’s once when Meg Ryan and Tracey Ulman were there – they had about 3 waiters each.

    • Anathema_Device

      3 waiters each…at Wagamama’s??!! LOL!

  • http://twitter.com/sarahohmygod Sarah Oleksyk

    She’s still staring at you… just not with her eyes.

  • redgauntlet

    Cold out, eh?

  • StellaZafella

    I’m imagining Ms stone saying something to the effect of: “At my age these should be around my midriff…here’s proof they’re not. so shut. the. f___. up. and cast your eyes somewhere else”

    hee hee!

  • http://twitter.com/KathrynTewson Kathryn Tewson

    Maybe she IS wearing a bra and those are BodyPerks.  (Googling will enlighten you if you don’t know what those are — basically, they’re prosthetic nipples you put on OUTSIDE your bra to give this look.)  A friend of mine keeps joking about buying a set of six and then putting them not just on her boobs but all down her abdomen before going out in  something similarly clingy.

    • l3icest3r

      Your friend is brilliant! :D

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jessica-TallGirl-Freeman/1043623567 Jessica TallGirl Freeman

      I was just thinking of the SATC episode where Samantha had them and Miranda borrowed them. Good stuff.

    • kimmeister

      Is your friend trying to looking like a nursing cat?

      • http://twitter.com/KathrynTewson Kathryn Tewson

        Yes.

  • janetjb

    Perky Sharon Stone

  • MzzPants

    Sharon would like us to know that she still has high beams.  

  • pippitypup

    Well, it certainly draws attention away from her face and neck, which is probably the idea.

  • Charley18

    I usually agree, I never like the distraction. But I have to say, if anyone has the figure to get away with it, it’s her. Pretty damn perfect (and symmetrical).

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1266410766 Phyllis Craine

    No sagging though, good on her.

  • nannypoo

    Her boobs may be admirably perky but the rest of her looks exhausted. 

  • Anathema_Device

    Thank you, Sharon, for giving T Lo the opportunity to share that story. Priceless.

    Nips or no nips, I actually like her outfit.

    • Jill Roberts

       Yes yes, great story, great outfit.  Also, great screen name.  Well played.

  • l3icest3r

    3 out of her 5 little piggies are crying wee wee wee all the way home. She needs a pair of shoes that fit in the toe box.

  • julesj

    she’s proud of those girls, even though they have had more lifts than her face!

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/4XQEKTS36ZNIBTRRNZ3JYEPKWQ tet

      How about those knees – she had them done like Demi.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jessica-TallGirl-Freeman/1043623567 Jessica TallGirl Freeman

    I actually like the dress. Without the nipples.

  • judybrowni

    boobs that perky and perfectly aligned are being held up by a bra — just one without a lining.

    it’s why they sell bras that that tout full coverage, so your nips don’t distract your male colleagues in an air conditioned office.

    • TropiCarla

      Try distracting your students in math class. SIGH.  

      My mother passed this down to we three daughters. We all have permanent headlights and cup sizes ranging from C to H. Lightly-lined bras are our only salvation.

  • Lola67

    Still sexy. Love the shoes.

  • fringebenefit

    If your girls are perkily facing front, as hers are, without eyes averted (if you know what I mean), let them stare boldly at the world. Hey, those perky girls are about the only thing working on this prison gown.

  • Charmella…a DIVA at large!

    Obviously has a great surgeon! But she needs to take care of those ashy knees and legs!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1116204538 Juan Melendez

    HAHAHAHAHAHA, I LOVE the title of this post!!!

  • ShivaDiva

    Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!

  • Lina_bee

    Funny how threatened people are by nipples. It’s as if they represent Medusa’s death-glare instead of a source of nourishment and life.

    I think she looks great, and healthy, and is continuing to succeed at being professionally beautiful. Also, nice chiton.

    • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

      Oh please. One joke about them does NOT equal being “threatened” by them.

      • Lina_bee

        That was actually aimed more at the commentariat than the post itself — so many comments showing sooo much discomfort with female anatomy. Kind of amusing, really.

        • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

          Still not seeing this discomfort you speak of; let alone “soooo much” of it. Just a bunch of kittens making jokes like they always do. Lighten up.

  • http://phantomminuet.blogspot.com/ MinAgain

    I really like this look on her, but her hair leaves something to be desired.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=786229820 Rhonda Hanson

    how old is sharon stone? 53? If my boobs were that perky I wouldn’t wear a bra either! good for her.

  • TheOriginalLulu

    I can understand why she’s so proud of them; they’re looking mighty perky for her age, but she should be careful. She could take somebody’s eye out with one of those things.
    This shouldn’t surprise anyone, though. This is Sharon Stone. She’s insane.

  • holdmewhileimnaked

    oh, to me, i guess i’d rather that someone stopped her from wearing that upon which she earlier laid her weary head. or the flag of the nation fredrick’s of hollywood. one or the other. maybe both.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_EDI2DLE7DE3YPW2ONIHBWOVHMA ecallaw

    Great story!

  • TomBord

    That bag takes this whole look into drag queen running some errands  territory. 

  • butterflysunita

    She’s going to Dior wearing nothing but a pillowcase.  

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    How the HELL does she get her boobs to stand up like that at our age?

    • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

      Plus, it’s not THAT cold out, right?  So Why the Nipplage?  

      • Judy_J

        Maybe she iced them, like Jean Harlow used to do.

      • Anathema_Device

         The rubbing of the fabric could be the culprit.

    • watchmeboogie

       Surgery. ;)

  • marilyn

    Also, she needed to do something with her hair and makeup.  She is great looking, especially considering her age.  But, she is going between the Ritz Hotel  and Dior in Paris, so she needs to dress up a bit, even on her off days.

    Bethca those are the stick on nipples you get at Walgreens. Honest. Go look.

    What do men do if their nips are pronounced?  

    • alyce1213

      Sharon Stone stories have to among the funniest bits of Hollywood folklore.  Kathy’s story “In the morn . . . In the wood” is to die for laughing. She is cray.

      • http://twitter.com/SparklyCasanova UglyCasanova

        Yeah the video i was referring to can be seen on youtube.  Attach this “watch?v=xCX-NxKHq7k” at the end of the youtube address, it’s the part where she talks about John Lenon.  It reminded me …

        • alyce1213

          Oh yeah. that’s a good one. The one I was referring to is: 
          watch?v=9xoEAiQMSxo&feature=results_video&playnext=1&list=PLAF1634B6D38DA771

          from one of her specials. Enjoy.

    You know what, good for her. If I could afford breasts that perky, I’d never wear a bra.

    Really honey? Turn off the headlights.

  • LambeeBaby

    Nip

  • bellafigura1

    I think she looks fantastic.  I love the whole thing, head to toe and nipples in between.

  • Allison Woods

    I love the dress. Bored by the neeples though.

    Well at least they’re perky, which is more than I can say.

  • http://twitter.com/yankeefoxtrot Alex McGeagh

    Well, yeah on the bra part…

    But in other news…has she ever aged a day?! Wow. And she hasn’t fucked up her face either. Nice. 

  • EEKstl

    Hell’s Bells! If I were that perky at 53 I’d go braless too!

  • Rebecca Jay

    goddang I love this woman.

  • http://fray.slate.com/discuss/forums/3945/ShowForum.aspx nancykelley

    Disagree. I would love to look half as awesome as she does. And those legs! Not a vein in sight – does she get them done, you think?

  • mhleta

    At her (our) age, a bra is not an option, it’s a mandate.

  • guest2visits

    Unfortunately, it just looks like she’s departing one spa for another, still in her towel or make-up smock. And there’s no way she can’t
    know that thin little square of fabric isn’t going to do exactly this.

  • letter_M

    Is that a Michael Costello or Mondo “box with openings for arms” creation?  Sure looks like it.

  • BrightsideSusan

    Sharon and I are from the 70′s. No one minded that women had nipples there.

    • http://frankbettecenter.org/ sleah_in_norcal

      right on, sister!

  • Caaro3

    She’s kind of a mess.

  • SophieCollier

    She’s fifty-four years old!  If my breasts are still that perky at her age, I’m gonna show ‘em off too!  :D

      If you have the money, all you have to do is phone her surgeon.

    Frankly, the nipples kind of make it work. They give the dress a “pop,” if you will.

    Maybe that’s just her stash of jelly beans for low blood sugar?

    If only her acting were as good as her figure. She’s almost making that Valentine-candy sack work.

  • bitterk

    her boobs look very angry.  i think they need sleep.

  • Tatiana Luján

    If she were wearing a belt, I wouldn’t care much about the nipples. What I don’t like is the fact that that dress looks like she covered herself with a bed sheet and went to the street.
