Following on from this post about underwear as an outfit, I stumbled across this editorial from Vogue Russia (June 2008) that sums up such a mood perfectly:
It's strange how minimal the clothes are but it still seems to highly styled. Shot by KT Auleta and featuring Brazilian model Aline Weber it's one of the best examples I've seen of the underwear outerwear trend. The natural lighting, minimal make up and outdoor setting makes what could have been a stereotypical stunning model in lacy underwear suit become something new and makes the trend seem alot more wearable. The first shot of the high waisted knickers with lace tights is a perfect example of how easily this trend could be adapted; thrown up on a beaten up old t-shirt on top of that and it becomes an outfit.
