Celebrities are addicted to camera attention and flashing their underwear publicly seems to get results. But the fashion for see-through dressing is creating a new media excitement and we’re being treated to images of fabulously toned celebrity bodies draped in sheer fabrics and fully exposing their underwear!
Magazines, newspapers and the internet thrive on spectacle and the moment they see a celebrity wearing something risqué it could potentially turn into the news story for an entire day. It’s a known fact that media power has a huge impact on celebrities’ careers so by doing or wearing something quite shocking they can get headline coverage and draw public (and studio) attention to themselves.
It’s interesting to see that rather than exposing lots of flesh (which is usual for celebrities)) the newest trend is to go transparent with lace or sheer mesh worn over opaque boyshorts or “granny panties”. You can see how this trend has slowly emerged from Dolce & Gabbana’s gorgeous spring 2010 collection, they are perfect “scene stealers” and it would be pretty difficult to avoid attention wearing any of these outfits!
Madonna has probably had the biggest influence on the “lingerie as outerwear” trend (click to read Lingerie as Outerwear) throughout the years. She recently attended the Vanity Fair awards wearing a very cheeky sheer lace, split outfit and flashing her very pert little bottom in a pair of big black granny panties. She was accompanied by her demurely (thankfully!) dressed teenage daughter. Lady GaGa similarly can be seen wearing see-through tight black lace and solid (though scanty) underwear. Nicole Kidman is not adverse to showing her undies under sheer fabrics and Kate Winslet prefers dresses with sheer cut-out panels and the apparent absence of underwear altogether! Rosie Huntington Whiteley turned up at the Moscow premiere of Transformers 3 wearing a long transparent skirt and big black knickers.
So if you’re in the mood for some “panty-revealing” in a celebrity fashion, here are a few good solid panty styles which will give you just enough coverage and yet are trendy and sexy.
Triumph’s 532 Lace Sensation High Waist control Brief has that “Dolce & Gabbana retro look” and yet it also controls your waist and tummy to give you a very hourglass shape, perfect under either flowing transparent skirts or tight, figure-revealing dresses.
Naturana’s 0013 Pure Elements Panty Girdle also has the built in tummy control and comes to the waist just like the celebrity panties in the photos. It’s fully opaque yet made from an incredibly soft and stretchy fabric so it makes a great liner under your sheers.
For more of a boyleg look the 19608163 Tactel Microfiber Hipster by Change of Scandinavia is the perfect shape to fashionably reveal, and yet it feels secure with it’s low cut elasticated legs and straight across hipster shape.
Whether you’re feeling bold or not, these are all perfect panty choices for any outfit, sheer or not, so have fun shopping for your panties!
