A couple of weeks ago, le boyfriend and I headed out to our first ever Lingerie Francaise Runway Show, hosted by the ladies of Brill Communications. Not knowing what to expect, we stepped into the Distillery District’s Fermenting Cellar venue, and right away knew that we’re in for a treat.
The fourth annual Lingerie Francaise show featured some of the sexiest looks we’ve seen in a while from Parisian labels such as Lejaby, Princess Tam Tam, Gerbe, Simon Perele, among others. The Fall 2011 show’s theme was Ladies of the Silver Screen, with each segment prefaced by a clip of a movie star that inspired it. From Bardot to Loren – if there ever were sexy sirens to aspire to – those were it.
Post-show (le boyfriend’s jaw still on the floor), I didn’t even need to ask him whether he liked what he saw. Perhaps the Angels of Victoria’s Secret have all the buzz, but the Parisian lingerie, presented at the Lingerie Francaise show, have that certain je ne sais quoi – much more mysterious, glam, and sexy than VS could ever aspire to be. And dare I say, more grown up?
If you don’t believe me, check out some photos from the show on our Facebook Page! And do let me know what you think in the comments.
