Apparently, January is leather month. Who knew? 'Tough chic' is not an easy look to pull off, unless you're a French fashion editor, which means that for our ladies, it's more fail than fierce. Everyone tried to soften up their leather but not everyone succeeded.
Paula's gone for the sausage look, squeezed in. Not saying that it's not hot, just a little uncomfortable-looking. The lace detailing add a great feminine touch to the whole La Femme Nikita vibe.
I'm not sure what to make of this. Obviously, Jessica's body looks great, I just don't think this dress highlights it in the right way. I'm okay with everything above the waist but that kind of prairie skirt just doesn't make sense in leather. It's like a naughty dairy maid and it's just wrong.
Same idea, slightly better execution. The lace is supposed to lady things up but I feel like it compromises the whole look. What's wrong with the whole dress in leather? If you're going to go all Harley Davidson on the red carpet, take it all the way.
Kristen ups the ante by taking on all three trends at once and then adding one more element. It's not enough that there's lace, sheer fabric and leather - why not take the whole shebang and make it red, to really stand out? Interesting idea but strange execution.
Rooney, I am so tired of your $%! cutout dresses. Adding leather to the mix isn't making it any better.
No wonder the old guy looks so happy. He's just as thrilled as I am to find one chick to rock leather properly. Looking very Jean Seberg, Michelle is working a very chic look that integrates her leather skirt in a perfectly natural way. Count on Michelle to show the ladies how it's done.
