Best Dressed: leather up!

14 October 2009

Heads up! There’s a new LBD in town: the leather black dress. Although it can be a tough look to pull off, leather is Autumn’s key trend and we’ve spotted the best dressed A-listers wholeheartedly embracing it in recent weeks. From Kate to Angelina, the fashionistas are putting their seal of approval on skintight leather frocks, turning them from a dominatrix no-go to a fashion must-have. Check out who’s been tackling the trend and let us know whether you love or loathe...

Kylie Minogue was the latest starlet dressed to kill in a little leather number when she stepped out in NYC last night while Kate Moss and Dita V-T were leather-clad vixens during Paris Fashion Week – very va-va-voom! And although we can’t imagine Kate and Dita were particularly comfortable under the Parisian sun, the trend is a snug yet sexy option now that the colder months have arrived. Just add a warm winter coat à la Kylie which dresses down the look or belt it up Kate-style to enhance your curves or add colour-popping accessories like Dita’s animal-print Dior bag to break up all the black.

If you to want to add an edgy angle to the look, opt for embellishment – just check out this bandeau Balmain dress with chain detailing sported by Pink, Shakira and Kylie. Robin Wright Penn also donned an off the shoulder number by Balmain which she paired with lace- up heels, proving that a leather frock is the best way to make your man take notice. Angelina Jolie certainly turned heads when she joined Brad on the red carpet in a clinging Michael Kors dress and bondage pumps, while Drew Barrymore made a style statement with this L’Wren Scott lacquered number to show she meant business at the premiere of her new film, Whip It. One thing's for sure, we'll be snapping one up pronto!
