Dressed to thrill
Rock the boudoir this Valentine's Day with romantic lingerie inspired by your favourite celeb's style.
Who hasn’t gone shop-hoping to snag Sienna Miller’s latest boho babe look, Rachel Bilson’s Cali-cool vibe or Sarah Jessica Parker’s uptown Manhattan mien? If you love a particular celeb’s taste in fashion, why not channel her star style in your lingerie picks? After all, you know these stylist-assisted fashion plates don’t leave anything to chance, and neither should you. With Valentine’s Day on the horizon, there’s never been a better time to make sure your sweet unmentionables are anything but A-list.
Lingerie identity: Seductress
Channel a smokin’ hot Angelina Jolie vibe with a red-hot panty and bra duo like the set she bought at Trashy Lingerie.
Editor’s pick: Trashy Lingerie’s Peppermint underwire bra ($70 US) and Peek-A-Butt panty ($45 US), www.trashy.com
Lingerie identity: Ice queen (on the outside)
Nicole Kidman always looks the epitome of chic … with a bit of frost. If that’s your head game, draw your man wild with a lacy little number that seems prim at first – but is actually anything but.
Editor’s pick: Malizia By La Perla’s Elizabeth silk-and-lace balconette bra (69 Pounds, British) and thong (34 Pounds, British), www.figleaves.com
Lingerie identity: Burlesque babe
Scarlett Johannson seems perfectly at ease performing with the Pussycat Dolls in an over-the-top frilled merry widow-and-fishnets getup. This theatrical look is super-hot if you’ve got the confidence (and maybe some strippercise classes under your belt!).
Editor’s pick: Sugar N’ Spice mesh babydoll (panty sold separately), $29.50, www.lasenza.com.
Lingerie identity: Vintage flaire
Boho babe Sienna Miller is known for her flair with vintage clothing. Channel a sexy remembrance-of-flings-past message with boudoir lingerie featuring old-fashioned styling like contrast seams and rigid lace.
Editor’s pick: Elle Macpherson Intimates’ Dentelle underwire bra, $60 US (matching panty, $24 US), www.barenecessities.com
Lingerie identity: Hot new-mama
New mother Gwen Stefani loaded up on fashiony nursing bras. There’s no doubt style was as important as comfort for this trendsetting mama. Known for its slap n’ tickle boudoir-wear, lingerie sexpert Agent Provacateur’s new maternity line is the perfect match.
Editor’s pick: Maternity bra in leopard print with red contrast edge, ($110 US), www.agentprovacateur.
