And so it begins. Awards season has shifted up a gear into slow-but-steady action and with it comes the first look at spring/summer 2016's beautiful runway clothes—and, therefore, trends—in real life. With last year dominated (and exhausted) by see-through, barely there, couture body–required gowns, celebrities are going to have to find subtler ways to show their sexy. No new vibe could be better than the underwear-as-outerwear trend as seen on the runways of Givenchy, Saint Laurent, and Balenciaga where slip dresses, lace camisole and silk satin ruled supreme when set against black tailoring. It's not about exposure, it's about quiet seduction, sensuality. Which is why this lace-detailed LBD from Lanvin is yet another impeccable choice from Rooney Mara.
