As temperatures begin to drop and cool fall nights quickly turn into blustery winter days, celebrities and stylists are left searching for new ways to beat the winter blues and turn up the heat on the red carpet. Combining the sexy feel of lingerie with the functionality of staying warm, celebrities cloaked in black lace are proving that the gothic look isn't just for Halloween or angst-ridden teenagers.
From Kristen Stewart to Emma Watson, Hollywood has fallen in love with the lace trend. These luxurious looks may keep you warm but they're far from your grandmother's nightie.
Kristen Stewart, star of the Twilight saga, traded in her usual uniform of t-shirts and jeans for a form-fitting asymmetrical black and nude lace dress by Valentino, wowing audiences at the premiere of Welcome to the Rileys. With her lips in a perfect red pout and simple 'do, Stewart steered clear of accessories and let the detailed pattern of her lace dress shine.
With the help of lace detailing and a hint of her black bra underneath, Jessica Biel turned a pretty conservative Oscar de la Renta dress into a sultry evening look. Her lace ensemble was the perfect complement to Biel's recently dyed raven locks, making her overall look simply black magic.
At the grand opening of Lavo in New York City, Kristin Cavallari takes Biel's peek-a-boo bra a step further in a tight see-through black lace dress. Cavallari chose the curve hugging dress to show off all the work she’s been doing at the gym to maintain her svelte figure.
Zoe Saldana is really pushing boundaries with this short, deep v-neckline and floral lace patterned dress, drawing attention to all the right places. With her hair pinned back in a simple bun and steamy red lips, Saldana knows exactly how to pose to show off her figure in stunningly sexy lace.
Emma Watson has come a long way from her days being recognized as simply Hermoine in the Harry Potter series. After a few modeling gigs and some serious personal style, Watson is no stranger to taking chances, and this leather and lace Christopher Kane dress is no exception. Embroidered flowers, leather and lace come together to combine an age appropriate sweet and sexy look for the young star.
Regardless of which celeb is rocking this trend, black lace is the sexiest way to stay warm this winter!
