When it comes to evening looks, I tend to go for the unexpected: a pantsuit with a sexy pair of heels, or a metallic going out top. Then "The Look: Feminist Studies" in the September issue turned me on to the underwear-as-outerwear trend, and I quickly became taken by the classy, sexy, and impossibly feminine way celebrities like Diane Kruger and Rose Byrne are proudly displaying their bras on the red carpet. It seemed daunting to recreate at first, but I think I pull it off well. It's perfect for a romantic celebration—Valentine's Day is just around the corner, after all.
