Coi Leray Shares the Story Behind Her No-Pants Look: a Bodysuit and Thigh-High Boots
Set, as it is ritualistically season after season, against the backdrop of Paris’s famed Eiffel Tower, Saint Laurent’s Spring 2024 show offered up a lineup of neutral-hued ensembles in the form of boiler suits, pencil skirts, and slinky tanks. Shown at Paris Fashion Week, the collection was in line with the overarching trend of designers returning to classic dress and an emphasis on wearable clothing. In attendance is always a handful of today’s most popular celebrities, as it’s one of the most coveted tickets on the calendar. Sitting front row this season was “Players” rapper Coi Leray, donning a bold and almost blanket-style puffer jacket straight out of Saint Laurent’s recently released Pre-Fall 2023 collection. Leray styled it with a black halter-neck bodysuit, wraparound miniskirt, and ultra-tall, thigh-high boots.
Leray tells POPSUGAR the look was handpicked for her by Anthony Vaccarello, the fashion house’s creative director of seven years. “I love Saint Laurent and the relationship we’ve been developing,” Leray says. “Every show Anthony invites me to, they style me from head to toe.” Leray’s outfit was a bit more pared back than her previous looks during Fashion Month, including a trench jacket worn over a bra-and-underwear set for a Tommy Hilfiger event, and an embellished, netted gown for the Lanvin show. She wore an all-white number from the brand during the week as well: a bodysuit paired with a lengthy, fuzzy coat. “I love a sexy sleek look,” Leray says.
Ahead, Leray talks her favorite designs from the Saint Laurent show, her experience over a month of playing dress-up, and more.
