Lingerie 101

1. Focus on quality.
2. Make sure you only buy lingerie that fits correctly - there is nothing sexy about too-tight underwear that creates bulges.
3. Wear sexy lingerie even if no one else will see it.
4. Skip boring flesh-colour and choose bright colours and patterns instead.
5. Treat your skin to different textures - silk, satin and lace all feel amazing.

COSMO Lingerie Fashion Show
This year's COSMO Lingerie show was styled by designer Luiz De Laja, known for having contributed greatly not only to fashion design in Africa, but to some of South Africa's top creative offerings such as Design Indaba and Cape Town Carnival. The show boasted well-known local beauties such as Tracy McGregor and Lisa Cowley, as well as international models and new faces to watch.

Brands on the runway included Wonderbra, Edgars (Shelley, Free 2 B U, and Kelso), Jockey, Ackermans, Guess, Vogue Eyewear, Elle McPherson Intimates, Temptations, Absolut Vodka, and Aldo.

This year's show included a performance from Paige Mac, whose powerful voice stunned the crowd into silence. The show itself was a multimedia spectacular with post-modern imagery portrayed through wonderful wings, striking shoulder pieces, mysterious masks, and out-of-this-world accessories that combined to set this show apart from other local fashion shows.

As always, COSMO Lingerie showcased only the hottest brands and trends, top-quality sound and lighting and, of course, the most beautiful models around. All factors combined to make for a fashion show few will forget for the months to come.
