Don't Remove Your Kilt! Trivia Quiz


"Elegance is not standing out, but being remembered." If the point of fashion is to be both evocative and provocative, then these examples should be intriguing enough to merit a second look, even if it's scandalous to do so. Good luck!

Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Traditionally, what is worn under a kilt?

Answer: Nothing

Kilts originated in the Scottish Highlands centuries ago, becoming traditional ceremonial garb as well as formal attire. It would not have been uncommon to see competitors at Highland games tournaments wearing these, nor would they have been out of place for avid bagpipers and Highland dancers. Kilts are almost always pleated and while they don't need to, they most often bear a tartan print.

The scandalous part of these often-male items of clothing is that they are traditionally worn with nothing underneath.

The jury is out as to whether or not it's good and decent to opt out of underwear, but it really does come down to preference and, in the case of some, stubborn traditionalism.
2. Popular at parties well past their heyday, which Roman garb is, notably, little more than a cloth wrapped around the body?

Answer: Toga

The toga was really only popular in Rome for a short time since the bulky, full-body outfit, draped around and barely secured, was quickly surpassed by the pallium as the go-to in a Roman wardrobe. That said, the toga remained in fashion for lower classes due to its simplicity, even if it was a bit less comfortable (especially over other clothing).

The toga was typically male garb; women wore stolas. That said, togas were also worn by less respectable women, especially those engaged in sex trades.

It didn't stop the toga from becoming popular at college parties in the twentieth century though, and while even Roman citizens wore a layer underneath, the toga has since become scandalous for being loose-fitting and often unaccompanied.
3. Dark dresses characterized by ankle-length and full sleeves were commonly worn by which group during the seventeenth century?

Answer: The Puritans

The Puritans, who sought religious and societal reform during the seventeenth century in both England and what would inevitably become the United States of America, believed that clothing should be worn with severe modesty to ensure people were left unattracted to others' bodies. Typical womens' dresses would extend to the ground and any exposed skin would be covered by a layer. Clothing was dark and dull and made both because the circumstances were less than reasonable for exquisite garments and because it was intentional; it was all meant to be a counterpoint to political and religious activities of the time.

The same ideologies were brought along for the colonization of the New World, which is why you would see these clothes on the pilgrims.
4. Named after the site of a nuclear bomb test, what risque swimwear had to be modelled by a Parisian nude dancer before it became popular?

Answer: Bikini

So controversial was the two-piece bikini that when created in Paris in the late 1940s, it was very slow to take off because it pushed the envelope too far, revealing the midriff. It wasn't until famous actresses wore the revealing outfits in magazines and movies that its popularity took off, becoming one of the few standards for modern women's swimwear over time.

The bikini, despite being quite modern and quite progressive, has faced criticism internationally since it was introduced, especially in countries known for harsh views on the female body.

It's because of this that different variations (including the tankini and burkini) were invented.
5. Whose conical bra, worn during her 'Blonde Ambition' tour, became an infamous fashion choice for its sexual implications?

Answer: Madonna

Madonna pushed the envelope with fashion choices throughout her career, but none were, perhaps, as shocking as those made during the 1990s as she pull inspiration from various aspects of culture and media dating back centuries. The 'Blonde Ambition' tour, held in 1990 to support the "Like a Prayer" album, combined religious themes with sexual overtones, and the show featured Madonna in a conical bra created by Jean-Paul Gaultier (she wore it from the first number, "Express Yourself").

The bra has since become a signature piece for Madonna, appearing on wax figures of the Queen of Pop in Madame Tussaud locations worldwide. Madonna followed up the "Like a Prayer" album with "Erotica" and "Bedtime Stories", if you needed any indication of the direction she went after donning the piece.
6. During the early 2000s, trends in women's clothing led to which of these being visible, typically from the waistbands of low-rise jeans?

Answer: G-strings

The 2000s were a rough time for fashion. While men brought bright (and white) colours back into fashion with baggy, ill-fitting clothing, young women let it all hang out with high-cut tank tops and low-rise jeans. Of particular note during this era was a tendency, as per the style choices of girl groups and college-age movie stars of the time, to wear g-strings, but hike the actual strings up above the waistline.

The trend seemed to disappear as the decade wore one, but it was just another case of people pushing the boundaries of scandalous fashion. Remember when the puritans were scared of exposed ankles?! Oh the humanity!
7. Jennifer Lopez's sheer, green Versace dress, worn during the Grammy Awards in 2000, was known for which of these defining characteristics?

Answer: It had a deep, plunging neckline

Although pop musician Jennifer Lopez wasn't the first to wear the dress for a fancy event (it was also worn at the Met Gala the previous year by Donatella Versace herself), she was the first to make a major statement with it, parading down the red carpet at the 2000 Grammy Awards and presenting an award onstage.

The dress became famous at the time since it was, for all intents and purposes, barely draped over her body, revealing much of her torso and legs. The deep neckline left little to the imagination.

A month later, "South Park" creator Trey Parker wore a similar version of the dress to the Academy Awards; his film "South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut" was up for an award that night.
8. The Mankini was popularized in the 2000s as a novelty piece of swimwear for men, but it was most prominently seen in what movie?

Answer: Borat

Also known as a sling swimsuit, the 'mankini' is a single piece of swimwear designed to loop over the shoulders and connect on the other side. while most men's swimwear, traditionally, involves trunks, this combines the lesser material of a Speedo or a thong with the situational absurdity of suspenders.

Although this is a very untraditional piece of clothing, it did rise to infamy when it was worn by Sash Baron Cohen for the movie "Borat" in 2006. It has since been worn for comedic effect though, rarely, practical use. Probably because it's really ugly. Just saying.
9. Tightlacing is the act of restricting the body's natural build via the use of which of these fashion accessories?

Answer: Corset

Corsets have been around as vanity items for centuries, being used to pull in any excess weight from the torso and better distribute it for cosmetic purposes (which, I guess is the best way of saying "it pulls in the fat"). The catch is that while the corset has been used for that long to help its users feel better about the shapes of their bodies, some have used them to semi-permanently alter themselves. Tightlacing is performed to cinch the waist, and doing so for an extended period can greatly affect bones (especially the ribs) and internal organs.

Some extreme cases in the past have reduced waist size to below 15 inches in circumference.
10. At the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards, Lady Gaga accepted the award for Video of the Year wearing a dress made completely of which of the following?

Answer: Raw flank steak

It was certainly shocking at the time. Though Gaga donned several different unique outfits during the ceremony, changing them between performances and awards, the most famous ended up being the dress made of raw flank steak as created by Franc Fernandez.

The wore the dress onstage to accept the Video of the Year award for "Bad Romance", handing a steak clutch purse off to Cher to stand at the microphone. The dress has since been turned into jerky to be preserved for museum exhibits. It comes as no surprise that the dress was controversial at the time; Gaga received a great amount of scorn from animal rights groups for the fashion choice.
