OK, I get that black lace is a big trend and all that but I’m seriously worried about where this is going? What is up with the black lace and white silk combination? First we saw it on Katie Holmes – a (quite nice actually) lace top worn beneath a silk strapless jumpsuit arrangement, but apparently she ‘designed’ it herself so I guess we have to let that one go. But then Gwyneth in this Antonio Berardi affair. WTF! I understand that it’s witty and clever in its design but why black on white? It’s so ugly! Not to mention cheap. And nasty. Please, if any other designers (or God forbid, high street imitators) are ‘inspired’ by this, take a valium and have a rethink.
