Grammys dress code: No ifs and definitely no buts

No ifs, no buts - and indeed no buttocks or breasts. Stars heading to the Grammy Awards this weekend are being told to respect a strict dress code, and cover up.

American network CBS is televising the event and has made an official request that:

Buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered.

And, the memo didn't stop there. Also on the checklist of things to avoid are:

  • See-through clothing
  • Exposure of the genital region
  • Thong type costumes, which can be "problematic"

CBS broadcast the infamous half-time show at the Super Bowl in 2004 which included Janet Jackson's "wardrobe malfunction."

The network was fined for that by the regulator, although it was later overturned.

The 55th annual Grammy Awards are being held on Sunday at Los Angles' Staples Center.
