Thigh-high boots were all over the Helmut Lang Fall/Winter 2012 collection. At first I thought that it was paneled leggings, but quickly realized that they were boots. The detail in the prints were very different than any other show. One of them resembled scraped concrete in red and brown. The other interesting print looked to be tree bark. I think they were very innovative and amazing.
The silhouettes were classic Helmut Lang; slim and sleek. Skin-tight leather leggings tucked into boots, slim jackets, and body-con dresses. I think the look on Jourdan Dunn above is just amazing. Every single detail on it is perfect. It is clean and simple, but nowhere near boring. Plus, all black and leather is involved, so I may be partial. You can see more looks from the collection below.
Rihanna walked the carpet at the premiere of Michael Jackson The Immortals World Tour in Los Angeles, California. She wore her Helmut Lang Leather leggings with a Versace Jacket. I like the detail of these leggings. They are a pull-on pair, but have a fly and pocket stitching so they look like regular pants.
Rihanna looks just like she stepped out of the The Way You Make Me Feel video. Well that era. I can just see her walking around like she owns the place with a guy chasing after her. She just looks straight out of the late 80’s, in a good way. Going for a full on 80’s look is hard to pull off. I don’t think anyone else can wear this look other than Rihanna and look normal.

Malin Akerman posed for a photo at the Tao for T-Mobile’s Google Music Event at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. She wore a pair of Helmut Lang Paneled Denim Leggings. It seems like many celebrities are starting to pull out their old jeans, which I like. I think there is no reason to just wear things from the new seasons and only the new seasons.
Malin is another celebrity that I am growing quite fond of. I think she has great style. She knows how to wear things. Even though I am not the biggest fan of these leggings, I think she wore them well.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was spotted doing some grocery shopping at Bristol Farms in West Hollywood, California. She gave her Burberry Leather leggings a rest and opted for a pair of the Helmut Lang Plonge Leather leggings.
The shade really makes these leggings look green here, but they are in fact a grayish brown tone. You can click here to purchase these jeans from the Helmut Lang website for $920.
