Trends | Leather and Lace: A Match Made in Summer Heaven

 This season has seen so many trends share the fashion spotlight; from florals, to stripes, to lace, and even leather! Yes, leather has managed to become a staple in the Spring/Summer collection of many designers and several high street brands.

A constant trend in Winter fashion, leather has been incorporated into shorts, pants, and flirty little dresses that have gained fashion critics’ praise worldwide. But the use of this material went further this season and we saw a harmonious combination of leather and lace and the result proved that opposites really do attract; leather is strong and fierce and lace is soft and delicate and the blend of both fabrics has created some amazing outfits, many of which have been displayed on the red carpet by A list celebrities.

Red Carpet | Supermodels Add Sexy Glamour to Cannes

Why are supermodels attending movie premieres at a film festival? Who knows… Did they bring a whole lot of sexy to the red carpet? They sure DID!

Not that I’m complaining about their presence, on the contrary, it’s pretty tough to put a model in a designer dress and not expect her to look stunning. It’s safe to say that some of the most famous faces in modeling have turned the Cannes red carpet into their very own catwalk!

Kicking it off with every guy’s favorite, Irina Shayk wore this black cutout and very sheer Roberto Cavalli dress (I guess you can call it a dress). The Russian beauty kept oh so very little to the imagination and even avoided a few wardrobe malfunctions.

Erin Heatherton was a bit more discrete on the red carpet, appearing twice so far wearing gowns by Roberto Cavalli. Just last night, the Victoria’s Secret Angel chose a white lace number by the Italian designer for a bash on his yacht.

For the premiere of The Great Gatsby, British model Cara Delevingne wore a plunging black dress by Burberry with sheer panels of lace. Red lips, a smokey eye, and sparkling diamonds completed her look.

Doutzen Kroes is another model currently attending the Cannes Film Festival. For her first appearance, the Dutch beauty chose a blush pink gown by Versace that featured a plunging neckline and a high thigh slit. For her next walk down the red carpet, Doutzen wore a jaw dropping white dress by Calvin Klein, complete with a slit up to there and that put her back on full display.

I saved the best for last, and the best is non other than Alessandra Ambrosio. The Brazilian model has been seen all over Cannes tanning, enjoying the sites, and having lunch with friends in comfy outfits. However, when it was time to hit the festival, the model brought the glam! For the De Grisogono party, Alessandra wore a stunning yellow gown by Elie Saab and accessorized with a matching belt and sandals. To attend Roberto Cavalli’s boat party, she chose a royal blue gown by the designer that featured a lacey sheer back. Back on the red carpet, the model looked like she was dripping in silver in another Roberto Cavalli metallic creation that covered her frame, but showed off her sexy physique.
