Case Closed: Paloma Faith in Sass & Bide’s $1,2000 mesh leggings

Paloma Faith wears Sass & Bide leggings

Remember the Sass & Bide mesh leggings we showed you back in January? We wondered who on earth would wear them (Gaga excepted, obviously), much less pay $1,200 for them, and now we have our answer: it’s Paloma Faith, seen here at a party in London last night.

We suspect Paloma may well have borrowed these rather than bought them, but either way, what do you think of this look? Has she convinced you these may worth splashing the cash on yourself?

    Nicely matched brass-colour accessories. I can imagine she’d fit in well in a fetish club, except that the “underpants over your tights” effect sort of spoils it.

    The only time the undies over tights look is acceptable is when you’re in fancy dress as an action hero. I don’t understand why she chose to do it for this look … other than maybe the tights are heavy from the metalwork and had the tendancy to work their way down and go a bit droopy in the crutch area.

    Tights are not pants. Ever.

    I’m inclined to find this less offensive than I probably would usually because she’s obviously understanding how crazy it is and working that. This is no 14 year old in tights for pants with a big-text eighties tee, people. This comes under the same sort of category as Gaga in my books. Not all celebrity appearances do, but I’ll let it slide here.

    Also, AWESOME hair.

    I like the tights but what’s up with the rest of the outfit? It kind of look like she’s dressed up in a video-game character costume to me!
    Personally I don’t think it looks very good or is very tasteful; I can’t see it as anything other than a costume. I do like the shoulder-puff thing, though!

    Honestly I think that separating the ouftit at the waist and putting more clothes on the remaining side could work.

    I’m sorry but she looks absolutely repulsive.
