To be completely fair, many - perhaps most - Transformers use their secondary color for their thighs, and Windblade uses her secondary color (jet black) for her midriff as well, but with Arcee its the porcelain white color and the literal belly button that pushes it over the line from the campy superhero look to slooty.

Edit: Also to be fair, a person might be able to make the case that G1 Megatron is 'dressed' like a male stripper.

Not to mention Windblade’s face is a different color than her secondary color

True, but even in her comic series she was said to be wearing make up, so you could debate what color her face really is. And sometimes Arcee's face and hands are a really faint pink, instead of the white used on her legs and midriff. In either case though, it's missing the forest for the trees; their overall looks evoke very different associations.
