Get The Look: As Seen on Alexandra Burke

After hearing that Alexandra reached number one in the charts yesterday we watched her video for Start Without You where we noticed the various raunchy lacy black outfits she is wearing, including Henry Holland’s Lace Bodysuit for Pretty Polly that is available at MyTights! See Alexandra wearing the lace bodysuit here!

Alexandra has joined the endless list of celebrities to wear lace bodysuits. The most infamous wearer of lace bodysuits is undoubtedly Lady Gaga, who has worn a series of them. Alexandra has opted to go for a less dramatic approach compared to the theatrical path of Gaga by sticking to elegant black lace and simple accessorising. Alexandra’s styling is reminiscent of the likes of Amanda Seyfried, Leighton Meester, Kylie Minogue, Lea Michelle and model Natalia Vodianova’s chic take on the bodysuit.

The all-in-one bodysuit is a fantastic evening out outfit, however it can seem a daunting piece to wear but it doesn’t need to be. As Alexandra has proved, you do not need to be super thin to pull this look off, curves look amazing in the lace detail bodysuit. Mirroring other celebrities who have worn the revealing bodysuit have all opted to wear simple black lingerie underneath that gives great support. The key to getting Henry Holland’s lace bodysuit right is the underwear you choose to wear – you want to avoid looking trashy and aim to look sassy but fabulous. For those of you who are not so keen on showing so much of your body but want to grab yourself a bodysuit, do not fear. Wear an effortless black bra or bandage bra like Alexandra underneath and wear shorts or skirt to cover your bottom. If you are feeling brave, wear high-waisted briefs such as Spanx Higher Power Brief or Aristoc Bodytoners Retro Control Brief that has beautiful retro panelling with a glamorous shiny finish. These briefs will give great coverage and support and with the ‘All Woman’ trend being a hit this season they are great replicas of the 1960s era lingerie.  So be brave and dare to bare like Alexandra and take a look at the Henry Holland’s Lace Bodysuit!

Look Magazine 17/08/2010

We do get about a bit…. in a good way of course…. and this week we are proud to announce a guest appearance in the fabulous LOOK magazine. Appearing on the luscious ‘power thighs’ of Ms X-Factor herself Alexandra Burke, are a pair of the very lovely Falke Seidenglatt Stockings. Straight from the naughty apple that is the My Tights stockroom, these Falke stockings are a little piece of luxury with their beautiful mother-of-pearl finish.

Whether it’s classic silk, cosy wool, or sexy vintage-look seamed hold ups, stockings are a timeless look that will never die. Simple to dress-up, or dress-down, wear in the work place, or on a casual afternoon with the girls, stockings are a part of the foundations of every girl’s wardrobe. They are the embodiment of style, and double-up at the festive season as a nice little place for Father Christmas to leave his goodies… well, we can but dream!

Burke, winner the X Factor 2008, is due to celebrate her 22nd birthday next week, and we think she’s never looked more radiant. Having recently become the face for Sure deodorant, the gorgeous star bares her soul in this emotional interview for Look magazine. We hope she’s feeling a bit more cheerful in time for the return of The X-Factor this weekend…
