In recent months it hasn’t as much been a piece of latex wardrobe or any alternative fashion accessory that has gained trending traction across the web. As to be expected, given the end-of-year-into-the-new Hollywood award season shows, pretty much haute couture is getting the most attention. Shows like The Golden Globes, and the upcoming Oscars …
I liked how more than a few designers-Baci comes instantly to mind-were showcasing ‘alternative’ couture in lingerie.

The press was slightly shocked at a recent photocall for her new movie Maleficent when Angelina Jolie showed up at Kensington Palace in a white Atelier Versace dress. Though she was sporting Louboutin heels with a deep red seemingly dripping down the back, Brad Pitt’s lady was looking positively alluring in white. And while we are all used to Jolie looking fetching the public is not so used to the lady in white…or any light color that is.
