Rihanna is showing off her legs in Wolford pantyhose

July 30, 2012 under Famous

Rihanna is one of those music stars who actually appreciates expensive hosiery!  A quick Google search revealed that she wears Wolford quite a lot.  Here is a photo from London, Brit Awards 2012.  This is a Wolford design called “bondage”.

There is also a brave picture of Rihanna in leopard print stay ups by Wolford called “Leo”.  Well, I am sure that only stars like Rihanna can get away with such bald fashion.

On the cover of GQ she is posing in fishnets with a reinforced sole.  Not sure what brand those are, but some kind of hosiery is better than nothing.  I hope she starts a trend!  To my surprise she is only 24 years old, so she still has a lot of time in front of her to rock the world.

Hope Solo, both famous athlete and troublemaker, runs around in pantyhose

This photo was taken before “dancing with the stars” according to what I found online – she was a contestant for 2011 paired with Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

There she is, beautiful and provocative!  She used to be a model before her soccer career.  Even though she is wearing fishnets, I am glad to see that she is in fact wearing some kind of hosiery.  Better than going bare legged!

That’s one sexy goalkeeper lady!  Good luck to her during 2012 Olympics.

Fishnet pantyhose – from runway, to glamour, to workplace

March 24, 2012 under Style

Nude or beige fishnet seems to become a new standard for fashionable and presentable women.  Here is a photo of Jeanne Beker (60 years old!) who is a Canadian fashion star.  She is sitting on a chair and describing what her model is wearing.

But… Jeannie is in some kind of hosiery, the model isn’t.  How come?

I went to see her presentation in Vancouver.  She was dressed formal, with a black jacket that had a subtle sparkly texture, and nude fishnets to my surprise.  Her models though didn’t wear any hosiery to my disappointment, really not sure why.

Later I went to a similar presentation for another collection.  Models were dressed in winter clothing without any hosiery.  You know, not everyone’s legs look so good… one girl had bruises as if she played soccer, another girl had some kind of red spots resembling an allergy, and all the other girls looked really out of context with bare legs and a jacket.  I couldn’t take it, so after the show I came up to one of the stylists and asked why it’s like this.  She told me that they should have worn nude fishnets, but the stylists forgot about it because they were focused on the clothing only.

Hosiery Association recommends for women who like fishnets to wear smaller, more tightly knitted fishnet of muted colours like charcoal or nude to the office.  They also admit that before it wasn’t an acceptable option for the office, but now it is OK.  I can understand why.  It’s more durable and doesn’t run if damaged.
