The A-list AP obsession

If it’s not Louis Vuitton Spicy shoes or Balmain’s power jackets, what do you think has been the most spotted must-have item of the season? Meet Agent Provocateur’s leopard-print bodysuit called Iona. Who would’ve thought a leotard would overtake a stiletto in the cost-per-wear department? On the other hand, we have seen Beyoncé, Lady GaGa and Britney Spears trumpeting the merits of wearing a leotard both on and off stage, and if Stefano Pilati at YSL can send one down the A/W '09 runway, then surely it's the next big thing...

We’ve spotted the ‘Iona’ (it’s £175 btw) on Lily Allen, Daisy Lowe, Heidi Klum and most recently Christina Aguilera. So, what’s the allure? In addition to 99% of women who adore anything animal print, the jersey bodysuit actually has layers of hidden structuring underneath, creating a sassy nipped-in waist and what Agent P are dubbing a Jayne Mansfield body. It’s been selling like hot cakes, but thankfully it’ll still be available until December – just in time for party season – for when us non-celebs can get away with wearing such a head-turner!
