As a designer based in India, I am required to wear red lipstick (or occasional w/pink hue), thick black lines and mascara around the eye, high heels too... are requirement where I work and intern as we are ladies on the staff roll. Such power dressing naturally exhibits lots of rouge along with content of work and presentation. But pardon me being slight aloof, why do many in the street stare at me as if I were a hooker, simply because I adorn (for professional reasons) makeups? Quiet recently, it was awkward (done and dusted from my core-belief), a night out with friends turned sore, as group of middle aged men, signaled hand- gestures, very objectionable ones from a moving car! They drove away at brisk pace but risked our lives, as beggars with pavement dwellers turned turtle, adding more fuel to fire by jeering further. HOW ON EARTH did this group of educated, well to do people, provoke us in this manner? Thank goodness, a checking was happening ahead. We boarded a taxi promptly, followed the car and reported to the cops about such eve teasing. A breath analyzer was stuffed into their mouths to check if they were drunk, but they were not. So their gestures, *tongue tweaks* *screwing*, etc. were all deliberately done. Our friends and myself threatened to take matters with higher authority. They apologized profusely, and even the cops didn't pin-point our dressing code and it ended 80% on a good note. Does high make up and sexy dressing initiate such incidents where you live? Query is open for gentlemen and ladies alike.
