Tyson Beckford in “mantyhose” you say? Don’t mind if I do, sex appeal can be encompassed in all shapes, sizes, silhouettes and slenders… If you’re not familiar with “mantyhose,” check out Madonna’s saucy dancers in her “Girl Gone Wild” video. The latest “cult” craze in the hosiery world makes women everywhere rejoice that now men can understand the discomfort of stuffing your entire lower body into the equivalent of a sausage casing for humans. Take that men!
No seriously, His Royal Highness of Hosiery, famed Italian designer Emilio Cavallini, is not only responsible for the glory that is “mantyhose.” He is also one of the most innovative and respected designers in the hosiery world. While we may want to hate him for causing discomfort, we must also love him for making out gams look mega-FAB.
For his latest line, Emilio Cavallini hosted a launch party in London and was joined by a slew of gorgeous guests, including Eliza Doolittle, Jade Parfitt and of course, the delectable Tyson Beckford. Appearances were also made by Jameela Jamil, Lea Weller, Paloma Faith and Amber Atheron (all sporting Emilio Cavallini of course), where guests chowed down on mini-burgers, Perrier Jouet champagne and cocktails with fun names like “Let’s Talk About Passion.” Check out more photos of the fun after the jump.
