Alanis – you are not Lady GaGa……

Monika on

No she’s not….she’s way more talented and way prettier! Granted, I don’t like that outfit, but I had shirt that looked fine at home, and then when you beam light onto it it because see-through…so embarassing! Knowing Alanis, this was a fashion mishap!

erilynne on

I agree Monika, I think it is based on the flash of the camera.

Megan on

How would you not notice at home it’s that sheer ? That’s a terrible outfit

Monika on

Megan – different lighting. Believe me, I had a shirt I put on at home in the morning, went to work, and only then noticed my bra beaming through it! Some thin materials just react differently depending on the lighting. But I agree that in this picture it seems like a terrible outfit, but despite that, I think she looks really great🙂

tracy on

that look is not for the public eye!

Sarah on

Everytime I see her the more and more I think she is having twins. I’ve never known someone to grow so quickly with only one.

Alanis is DEF. not GA-GA, she’s 100% BETTER!!…IMO, the top was probably that thin knit type and it under different lighting/flashbulbs went sheer…I doubt it was her goal for the day to give the paps a flash!…Looking good Alanis, be well!

She is a twin herself-so it could be possible.

I remember when Angelina Jolie was pregnant with the twins Knox/Viv and there was a picture of her in like March 2008 and she was only 4 months pregnant-and looked 8 months pregnant.

Yeh i read it was a shirt that went see-through due to the light from the flashes of a ton of cameras, some clothes just do that it’s very annoying and you don’t know it’ll happen until it does. She looks great and I hope she has a happy healthy pregnancy.

Trish on

I love her, she’s a great musician, and I wish her the best in her pregnancy. She is healthy & glowing!!!

shalay on

I’ve never seen her husband before. He’s cute!

Holly on

Alanis & her husband look great together! She is glowing and looking very happy. I think she’s beautiful and I can’t wait to see what her baby looks like. Wishing them all the best!

At least she’s wearing a bra! LOL

Seriously, though… it was the flashbulbs. On a different site there were pictures of her in the sunlight out by an airplane from earlier that day and her shirt looked like a normal everyday shirt. Regardless, she looks happy and healthy. Good luck to her and her husband.🙂

MZ on

i don’t think she looks large in this photo at all. some women just get large early, or just large in general, and it doesn’t mean twins. i seriously get sick of ppl asking me if i’m having twins….i just have an abnormally small upper torso so the baby has nowhere to go but out. if alanis is having twins that’s awesome, but if she’s not, i can’t imagine she’d like reading all the twin speculation.

CelebBabyLover on

Alanis doesn’t look that big to me!

D on

I wouldn’t wear a top like that.

Sonya on

She looks just about right for being 5 months along to me (that’s how far along she would be if stories of her being pregnant before they got married in May are true).

Kat on

Oh man, those camera flashes. At least homegirl was wearing a bra AND it matched the outfit. She’s doing better than me on most days. LOL

Sarah M. on

Jodie – I thought the exact same thing when I first say it! It would have been much worse if she had decided not to wear a bra!!

As for the twin speculation, I wasn’t saying that she looked too big. I was just responding to others who thought she did. That perhaps she could be simply because they run in her family. The twin epidemic (multiples epidemic, really, as there were 2 sets of triplets born to celebs in July, also) seems to be getting worse. And every pregnancy shows differently on every person. So she could just get big faster, or she could be having a set of multiples. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see…

Sarah M. on

Sorry, the 2 sets of triplets were born in June and not July.🙂

CelebBabyLover on

Kat- Very good point about the bra! This picture could have turned out 10 times more embarassing for her if she hadn’t been wearing one (I don’t know about her, but I definitely don’t want people seeing my “girls”!)!

MiB on

I have had the same thing happening to me with thin knit tops (they look totally opaque in front of the mirror at home, and bevcome see through in strong lighting or flashes. It it very embarrassing when you are in the wrong company or being photographed… Though I have since learned to always wear nude bras under white or thin tops, makes accidental sheerness less obvious.
