There’s a right and a wrong way to pull of black lace. Pearl Lowe’s $72 lace dress is the right way. Gossip Girl stars Blake Lively and Leighton Meester showed the wrong way this week lookin’ a big old hot mess in too-sheer lace dresses on the red carpet.

What they did wrong:

Lace is hot for fall, but only as overlay or in ruffle or sleeve details. Not alone (doesn’t leave much to the imagination, eh?).

In Blake’s case, the sheer stomach area is completely gratuitous; a lacy hemline would have been sexy enough.

Don’t even get me started on Leighton.

What they should have done:
