For a great red carpet look, the Little Black Dress is a classic choice. Make it an LBD in a romantic lace fabric and you're almost sure to top the Best Dressed list ! This month, television stars' Shay Mitchell (Pretty Little Liars), Lea Michele (Glee), and Lizzy Caplan (Masters of Sex) all attended special events looking lovely in lace!
Why wear it?
Lace is a classic fabric that never goes out of style. It's romantic, pretty, and matches pretty much everything. It also allows it's wearer to show off a little bit of skin without looking too exposed, and as we saw last year, the faux-nude look is huge among the celebrity set at the moment.
At an event to celebrate Glee's 100th episode, Lea Michele opted for an on-trend sheer lace dress with opaque "lingerie" underneath that had a distinctly vintage pin-up vibe. The 27-year old L'Oreal Paris ambassador accessorized with gold jewelry and embellished strappy heels. For her beauty look, Lea went with a bronzed glow, sexy smoky eye, and nude lip- in other words, her signature style !
For the finale of Pretty Little Liars ' fourth season, Shay Mitchell went for a "now you see me, now you don't" effect, pairing a revealing top with opaque lingerie underneath and an opaque black skirt. Her beauty look and romantic, soft curls screamed "Old Hollywood glamour".
Okay, so Lizzy Caplan isn't technically wearing a dress, but her ensemble is certainly in the same vein. The Showtime star opted for a revealing jumpsuit in black lace. Rather than going for the same opaque lingerie look, however, her jumpsuit employed cleverly placed flesh-toned fabric. Lizzy opted for a wet look hairstyle and, like Lea, a nude makeup look.
Will you be trying out a lacey look this spring?
