Erica-Campbell

Last week Erica Campbell’s infamous white dress caused a little bit of controversy throughout the Christian community.  Some felt as if her form-fitting dress was a little too provocative for a church lady.  But other people felt she looked beautiful, and Erica is one of those people.

“I’m taking it in stride and I’m keeping it moving,” Campbell tells ESSENCE.com. “When we took the picture I felt beautiful, I felt confident, I felt sexy and I felt strong.”

“I thought I looked cute,” she says jokingly, “but it obviously offended some people, which was never my intention.”

Campbell’s family also thought she looked amazing in the photos.  “Our whole family loved it,” said her sister Tina Campbell. “You see grace, you see beauty, you see elegance and style. It’s wholesome.”

It’s the criticism that she’s received that leads Campbell to believe a much-needed conversation about Christianity and sexuality needs to happen. “This is about confidence and realizing that God made you and that you are beautiful just the way you are,” she says. “I think that young girls shouldn’t only get sexy images from people who are not proclaiming Jesus. But I am. And I’m cute too.”

Clutchettes, what do you think about Erica’s comments? Can there ever be a conversation about what’s deemed Christian “sexy”?

    Erica looks like a beautiful angel in her white dress. The dress is covered up to her neck and is covering her knees which is all that should matter. All the females in her family are “hippy and “curvy.” Leave her alone.

    She looks gorgeous.

    I’ve seen women in church wearing things tighter and far more revealing than this dress.

    The dress is NOT overtly sexual. She looks confident and powerful and that’s what the sexy is about in this photo.

    I do think its a nice dress but I think its too sexy for a gospel artist. According to the word we ought to be modest in our dress. Soon the world won’t be able to differentiate from Christians all together. God has a high standard. This should have been a private photo for her enjoyment not for the world. Yes she’s beautiful and we love her and more than a dress but come on, sexy is over rated for saints. Let’s press towards the mark of the high calling.
