Sex and The City Movie: All About the Knee Socks

Found this (TeamSugar) stack of preview images from the upcoming Sex and the City movie (via The Cut) and it looks like Sarah Jessica Parker's Carrie is all about the knee socks and over the knee socks!

What do you think of these looks? I personally think she looks super cute in the gray over the knee socks at the top of this post, I'm not so sure about the ones below.

Stay tuned for Runway leg wear, Volume D, later in the day.

Runway: StockinGirl featured in Reem Acra 2009 Bridal

For her Spring 2009 Bridal line, Reem Acra took an extremely creative approach. Here's what she has to say about the collection:

"Spring 2009 is a rush of passion and emotion that blends all past seasons to create a luxurious D'reem'land. I envisioned the evolution of a wedding dress 20 years after its walk down the aisle, with the models like little girls evoking a mischievous quality, playing dress up with their mother's wedding gowns. In this tongue in cheek tableau I want to encourage my friends to join in by photographing a time capsule of then and now."

To help with this mischievous look, Reem Acra used bright colors, prints and other products from StockinGirl. The result is something right out of Alice in Wonderland that we are proud to be a part of:

If you look closely you can see our hibiscus, plaid, and pastel puppies prints, as well as our opaque thigh highs. Brightly colored tights were also used.

Runway Style: The Letter B

Continuing with my search of RTW 2008 Runway Shows via, I bring you leg wear from the letter B. All images from

Behnaz Sarafpour features striped pantyhose:

Benjamin Cho used cool embellished leggings (similar to these). Would you wear leggings pulled over your heel like this? :

Betsey Johnson's retro styled fashions showed with tights, over the knee socks, fishnets and leggings, even some leopard print.

Bill Blass used classic black pantyhose to accent some of his slightly film noir style pieces:

And Bottega Veneta found colored tights that almost exactly matched the shade of the dresses:

What do you think of these looks? Which is your favorite? Least favorite?

Runway Style Brought to you by the letter A

This week I'm sorting through some of the Runway shows that I missed at They've listed the designer alphabetically, so that's how I'm browsing.

Allegra Hicks:

I know a lot of you are wearing solid tights - do you wear matching colors, like on the left, or contrasting like on the right?

Anna Sui:

Anna Sui is one of our favorites for using printed leg wear (and fabrics) and shiny gold glitter tights. I love the subtlety of the pattern on the purple to the bottom left.

Something to talk about - in that last photo, the fishnets are worn underneath pants with heels. Have you done this? Would you?
