Yes, ok, it’s a heatwave and the last thing you want to do it pull on some tights. But knowing British weather, it’s likely to last about two more days before we’re catapulted back into grey skies and chilly breezes. Thankfully, the stars haven’t been shying away from their legwear- so when you do return to your hosiery drawer, there’s plenty of celeb inspiration for you to draw upon …
Lily Cole Rocking Coloured Tights
We spotted supermodel Lil accepting an honorary degree as the Glasgow Caledonian University last week for her outstanding contribution to humanitarian and environmental causes. Except we were more concerned with the outstanding contribution she was making to fashion – and she didn’t disappoint, rocking a superbly chic and somewhat surprising pale pink shift and purple tights ensemble. Together with her flaming red hair, on paper it shouldn’t have worked – but it did. Looking completely composed and gorgeously sophisticated, it’s the best way we’ve seen coloured tights done this year – keep up the good work, Ms. Cole!

Carmen Electra Working Fishnet Tights
On the other side of the Atlantic, Carmen Electra was spotted at a show in Toronto – except this isn’t Carmen as we know her. The star, known best for her role in Baywatch as well as her brief fling with music mogul Simon Cowell, showed off her enviable figure in a raunchy sports luxe look. Donning a black and yellow leather leotard (complete with sheer panels and bold stripes), she looked ready to party like it’s 1999 as she completed the look with urban cornrows and black fishnet tights. Looking more like a twenty-something than a 41-year-old, we’ll have what she’s having!
