There’s an unlikely fashion craze that’s sweeping the celebrity circuit, and it’s not for the faint-hearted. Step-up, Blake Lively and her sheer body-stocking.
The new mum may have looked gorgeous at the Age Of Adelaine premiere in her show-stopping red feather dress from Monique Lhuillier, but we hadn’t seen her after-party outfit yet…
The A-list actress went fora seriously sexy sheer look later on, working a star-motif body-stocking with a black tuxedo coat dress layered over the top. Wow. Very different from her usual girly elegance, and a guaranteed head-turner.
Making a body-stocking look sophisticated is no mean feat, but Blake managed to drop the trashy and go classy thanks to her longline coat, neat and sleek updo and her pretty, pared-down make-up. Bravo, girl.
Showing a totally different way of working the body-stocking, Kylie Jenner also rocked the out-there all-in-one to Coachella over the weekend.
Dropping jaws in her laddered and crochet number, which she wore over a black bikini and teamed with reflective sunnies, lace-up boots and grey cornrows, Kylie used the racy garment to showcase her fearless attitude towards fashion. Plus, if you can’t wear it to Coachella, where can you?!
But it was Kim Kardashian who originally showed the lace body-stocking some love, working it last year at Givenchy’s SS15 Paris Fashion Week show.
Kim’s was more of a flared number, and featured a structured basque for extra sex appeal, while a leather jacket slung over her shoulders balanced out the flesh-flashing.
