Lace Mask Make Their Editorial Mark : Katie Holmes, Claudia Schiffer and US Marie Claire Mag Embrace Fetish Inspired Fashion

Fetish Fantasy: Lace Masks Make Their Editorial Mark

After the sexy spectacle that was Kate Moss strutting around — cigarette in hand — as a smouldering bell boy for Louis Vuitton's A/W runway show, fashion's finest have been indulging in a flirtation with all things fetish-inspired. Thigh high boots, corsetry and luxe lingerie have populated glossy spreads since the Autumn/Winter trend reports began trickling through, but it's the prominence of the lace eye mask (as seen at Chanel's haute couture show) that best embodies this sexy trend. This month saw Katie Holmes get a dominatrix makeover for her Vogue Spain cover shoot, and similarly Claudia Schiffer smoked the cover of Vogue Germany. The latest mag to employ the peek-a-boo accessory? Marie Claire US, who propped a Giorgio Armani veil out to Katsia Zingarevich. Just as coquettish as the LV bunny ears that had a moment back in '09, but far sexier... we've decided that we're fans of the lace-masked-crusader look. Are you?
