We are big proponents of the saying “If you’ve got it, flaunt it” — within reason, of course.
So after seeing three stars this week cross that reasonable line, we felt the need to call out Kate Upton, Tyra Banks and Paula Patton for abusing the privilege of having phenomenal décolletage by putting it on display in a less-than-fabulous manner.

We can’t fault supermodel Upton for wanting to try the sheer trend, but when your chest requires you to wear super-supportive undergarments, it’s best to show off other assets under gauzy fabric — like a killer back or great legs. Even a plunging neckline would have been super-sexy, but this peek at her hardworking nude strapless number totally negates the allure of the sheer style.
Banks’s cardinal cleavage sin? Pushing her gals up so high that she risks a total knockout with one wrong move. Looking saucy is one thing; looking like you might suffocate is quite another. One final thought: If you do find that your earrings are grazing your breasts, it may be time to swap out the earrings or the pushup bra. Or both.
Finally, Patton makes the mistake of just going for too much. A good rule of thumb is to expose top cleavage or underboob — showing both can be overkill. Add a way-up-to-there slit and the look is head-turning, but not for the right reasons.
