You know we love the pantsless look. Many hate on Lady Gaga. I, however, am not one of them and happen to like what she's brought to the pop-culture forefront. But, really, how far are you willing to undress in the name of dressing? Between the Dior couture show yesterday - in all its garter-ed and sheer glory - and the fact that Rihanna went out over the weekend in pasties and a blazer, we started asking ourselves the same question. Now, of course, having a supremely stellar figure (or not) does probably weigh into this decision. But even in a purely hypothetical sense, I think I'm going to have to say yes to garters (though I think I'll take the sheer skirt over the top) and no to the pasties. Because, well, they're pasties and that's just too far. Plus no one needs to see me like that. Seriously. What about you?
How Sheer Will You Go?
Last weekend, I took a short trip to the UK for a dear friend's wedding. While I was only there for a few days, I made sure to stop by COS in London, simply because it's the best high street store in existence. (That is, if you're over 25 and now look absurd in too-trendy Topshop wares.) I scored with a sheer, greenish-blue button-up, which I wore yesterday to the YSL show with high-waisted black pants and a pair of Heavy Machine heels. Oh, and a black bra, which shone quite clearly through the translucent top. When I met up with my fiance for food, he kind of chuckled when he noticed that my bra could be pretty easily discerned by other diners in the restaurant. While he was more bemused than anything, he did think it was hilarious that I was cool with showing it off. Clearly, sheer is huge this summer.
