Who says you need pants – or a top – to wear a belt?

Ireland Baldwin let a Moschino belt serve as the centerpiece for a barely there look on Sunday.

Wearing only a pair of dark, high-waisted briefs and an un-zipped, printed bomber jacket, the budding model gave a peek at her bare breasts. In typical Moschino style, the belt featured heavy chain links and block brand lettering.

Baldwin, 20, posed in the mirror while snapping a black-and-white selfie of the look. The star was flanked by a rack of outfit changes for her shoot with photographer Aladdin Ishmael.

“Playing with toys and working with bad b—–,” Baldwin wrote on Instagram.

Earlier in the day, Baldwin kept it a little more casual – and a little more covered up – in only a dark bandeau and a pair of oversize Champion sweats.

 

What do you think of Ireland’s risqué look?

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
