Hemlines, heels and haute couture – your daily dose

Oh, Rosie – don’t you do that to the boys

I’ve never been that crazy about underwear. Sure, I wear it, and I see its necessity most of the time, but I’m not one to advocate spending crazy amounts of money on tiny pieces of fabric. There are two arguments for this spending: 1) that it will please your partner so much that he will, um, be very happy, or 2) that it’s just for you! A little secret, right underneath your clothes! And it makes you feel so great!By the logic of the latter, I’d rather buy a great new pair of shoes. As for the former, I don’t think there’s anyone in the world who could successfully argue that, by the time you get to the underwear stage, it’s the underwear your other half is excited about.

So when Monsoon’s new S/S 2010 lingerie lookbook dropped into my inbox, I was a little yawnsome. And then I spied the gorgeous Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, the lovely pastel (almost candy) colours, and the feminine touches of peekaboo lace under those adorable boy shorts, and I changed my mind.

And actually, I was recently in Monsoon with a friend of mine, where we found so many nice things (and here I thought it was only for weddings or bar mitzvahs) and I did notice that the underwear was particularly lovely.So what do you think? Has Rosie sold Monsoon’s undies to you, or are you strictly a low-brow (or high-brow) lady when it comes to smalls?  And what do the guys think? Does underwear matter? (Comments that say underwear must match will be deleted, and you will be contacted with a long diatribe about how MEN HAVE IT EASY.)
