The School of Flaunt

Back when "Flying Was Fun" Alexandra Smythe and Cate Clarke were Flight Attendants with a Major International Carrier. Prior to Private Jets coming into vogue, Alexandra and Cate traveled in the First Class World, meeting and greeting the top celebrities, politicians who would become Presidents, nouveau riche, and yes the occasional Headline Grabbing Criminal in Handcuffs!

What the two ladies viewed and experienced became fodder for the School of Flaunt, so much money, such bad taste and oh those terrible manners. Something had to be done! Hence, The School of Flaunt Handbook was born. Read More

Nude pantyhose are good enough for Pippa Middleton.

By Rina Raphael

If Pippa Middleton is sporting a style, is it safe to say it's sanctioned?

Not exactly.

The world's most famous younger sister was recently spotted stepping out in (gasp!) nude pantyhose in the fashion capital - Paris. Pippa's stockings caused a mild Internet uproar, with Jezebel.com claiming the young Brit had committed the "ultimate pantyhose sin." (Is there a hosiery bible we're unaware of?)

While tights have made a comeback in recent seasons, they've generally been restricted to opaque, patterned and colorful styles, while poor nude pantyhose still bear the mark of fuddy-duddy grandmas. But are they really that bad? They were certainly good enough for Beyoncé in her iconic "Single Ladies" video - and we don't mess with Beyoncé, right?

It seems that nude stockings were made irrelevant in past years thanks to the popularity of shapers, bronzers and the like. But it's peculiar that colorless options were regulated to the "sin" category of leg wear, right alongside"majeggings" and "junderpants."

"There's an odd, unspoken message generally assumed that the wearer is trying to conceal or hide her legs, but it ironically draws more attention," said TODAY style editor Bobbie Thomas. "Especially because sheer 'natural' shades of pantyhose don't appear as natural as more-modern innovations that can enhance appearance do."

But for some, nude pantyhose boast benefits beyond modern innovations like, say, a barrier against aggressive summer air conditioning, a solid coverupbetween waxing appointments or, let's be honest, simplicity. Sometimes it's just much easier to slip into pantyhose than do all that legwork.

Cate:   The Duchesse of Cambridge is wearing nude stockings too! And the report is they are flying off the shelves!! What is your opinion on stockings or bare legs? How old is too old for bare legs? Hmmmm

I'm such a bare leg fan. Glad I don't have to go to an office anymore.

I always thought bare leg in the summer months but it was not approved of in the office.
