La Perla‘s striking Ingenue bodysuit, which debuted last winter, isn’t what normally comes to mind when you think of bodysuits: it reveals a lot more than it conceals. It would be more accurate to call it a panty with a built-in plunging halter top in whisper-thin chiffon.
But why quibble? It’s an exceptional and daring design from a classic label that one doesn’t normally regard as a trailblazer in such brazen eroticism.
The only problem with a piece such as the Ingenue body might be imagining yourself wearing it. It takes a fair bit of confidence, and a certain kind of showmanship, to pull off a look this dramatic — with or without the matching bra.
Thankfully, you can get a good idea of the killer impression it leaves by checking out the image above from the cover of Kylie Minogue‘s 2012 calendar. As you can see, getting tangled up in all that draped chiffon is half the fun.
La Perla offers the Ingenue body in both red and black, and it’s currently on sale for $219. Both colorways are shown below, but keep in mind the matching bra is extra.
As for Kylie, don’t hate her for having a super-sexy calendar and looking so good at 43; thank her for the style tip!
