While a lot of people watch Hollywood award shows to actually see who wins what or what movies they should see, one of the main attractions is judging what the stars are wearing on the red carpet. People from all over the world gather around the TV set to see the glamorous dresses designed for their favorite actresses. Yet this year one particular actress decided to challenge this tradition by wearing a pantsuit to this years SAG awards.
Actress Rose Byrne showed up sporting an Anna Wintour inspired haircut and an Ice white Elie Saab jumpsuit. While in the past this would have awarded her a first class ticket to the worst dressed list, this ensemble received nothing but positive reviews from the critics. But pantsuits aren’t an idea exclusive to Byrne, since designers such as Yves Saint Laurent, Diane Von Furstenberg and Thakoon have incorporated pantsuits and well tailored pants into their latest collections.
This season is filled with pants since designers have decided to propose an antidote approach to sexiness, stemming away from the bandage dress-miniskirt approach and transforming it into an elegant one. And why not? Although legs are sometimes taken for granted they are one of women’s sexiest attributes, so instead of over exposing them, draw attention to them with a funky pattern or a well tailored pair of pants that accentuates your body shape. It will be just as sexy yet way more mysterious. Maybe it’s time you traded your overused Herve Leger for a sophisticated pair of trousers.
