Underwear is the new Outerwear

Underwear is the new outerwear. At Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring Summer 2010 shows at London & Milan Fashion Weeks earlier this month, the design duo showed their sexy signature corset dresses showing bra tops matched with 50s-style full knickers.

Taking inspiration from the boudoir, the Italian pair turned up the heat with crochet designs that exposed traditional bodices and corsets beneath. Bra straps peeked out from the top of dresses and lace crept from hemlines of super short minis.

D&G’s celebrity fans include Madonna, Frieda Pinto, Beyonce, Victoria Beckham and Scarlett Johansson, who is the face of their cosmetics campaign.

Underwear as outerwear as a trend is set to emerge next summer and was also indicated by Gucci and Versace.

It’s only appropriate therefore that you, dear reader, can pull off your own D&G look.
