’Tis the season for spandex.
Just in time for the period of leisure and recreation, stars are swapping their brightly shining with flashes of light party frocks for second-skin catsuits.
At Art Basel Miami Beach last week, Hailey Bieber looked like a walking bouquet in a brightly colored floral version of the look from Saint Laurent — a far cry from the slouchy suiting and street-wear she usually favors. Cardi B show off her famous curves in a quilted, sequined Chanel oneness modeled following one of the fashion house’s famous tweed jackets, and Taylor Swift sported a lacy one to present at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
Possibly most important in the catsuit vogue is London designer Richard Quinn, who consistently add gimp masks and unitards in his collections and is best-loved of very fashionable celebs, inclusive of
star Anya Taylor-Joy. At the British Fashion Awards in November, Priyanka Chopra displayed a ostentatiously attractive floral jumpsuit by Quinn, and 53-year-old Kylie Minogue demonstrated that PYTs are not the only ones who can pull off the look: She move to and fro with one onstage flanked with comparably clad backup dancers.
For fall 2021, Quinn surprisingly skipped his usual runway show in favor of a latex-laden film aroused by Michelle Pfeiffer’s 1992 take on Catwoman; with Zoë Kravitz ready to play the sexy villain in
next spring, the timing was completely accurate.
And no VIP loves co-splaying Cat-woman extremely than Kim Kardashian, who displayed a whole slew of Balenciaga one-pieces in new months, including two in hot pink for her “SNL” hosting debut. Balenciaga a bit out of your budget? Don’t fret, the shape-wear mogul is shilling similar velvet onesies for $98 as part of her most recent Skims collection.
Still leave it to Rihanna to in actual fact raise the bar on how racy this all-in-one outfit can get; her Savage X Fenty line’s take on the vogue is sheer, crotchless and comes with a giant midriff-baring cutout. The $90 piece comes in hunter green and red — how cheerful and lively!
Most importantly, who wants Christmas stockings when you’ve got body-stockings?
