Lace isn't just for lingerie—as any style-conscious lady who's fond of the versatile fabric can tell you. And this week, a pair of Hollywood's favorite fashionistas showed up on our radar sporting all-over lacy looks that ranged from sweet and sophisticated to seriously sexy. Whose ultra-feminine dress was a perfect complement to her latest romantic role? And who took one major plunge with a scalloped neckline and sheer sleeves? Check 'em out in today's Style Superstar.
Rachel McAdams made for one pretty picture at the photocall for "The Vow," where she scored Style Superstardom in this Colette Dinnigan dress featuring delicate black lace in a creeping damask pattern. The nude-colored underslip is so identical to Rachel's skin tone that it gives casual lookers quite a trompe-l'oeil double take, but the sweet little sleeves and longer hemline keep it lacy, not racy. The only thing more romantic is the movie she's promoting.
Also opting for the black lace look this week: Salma Hayek, who gave everyone an eyeful at the Prada 24 Hours Museum launch in Paris. Salma's famous ladies were looking luscious in this ultra-sexy dress with a plunging neckline—and pay no attention to the prudes who thought the exposure of her assets was too much. Everyone knows that Salma has a divine right which exempts her from any draconian rules regarding cleavage exposure. (Not to mention a divine left! Hee hee!) The only thing we'd change about this great lacy love affair? The heavy black choker, which takes the whole look a little too close to bordello barmaid territory.
