L-R: The Haute Pursuit, Rita Ora and Lily Allen [Instagram, Rex]
Once upon a time it was just Madonna or Lady Gaga who would be so bold as to wear a brassiere – sans top – out in public. But with midriff flashing and deep-V action tamed into the mainstream, some A-listers and FROW-goers are keen to reveal a little more.
Rita Ora chose a black Freya bra for her performance at Milan’s Phillip Plein show – maybe to counteract the mannish jeans, denim shirt and biker boots? Blogger Vanessa Hong of The Haute Pursuit decided that her pinstripe jacket needed a little lace – it’s business meets brazen. And Lily Allen, the girl to top everyone, layered two neon numbers (remember doing that at school for extra cleavage?) with a ballgown skirt. If that doesn’t say pap-me...
Could this lingerie love-in last in the real world? With the sheer chiffon trend gaining traction for summer, there could be some middle ground to tread. But for now I know where my bra should be and that’s well and truly under a big snuggly jumper. What say YOU?
