Pulling off the Pyjama trend: Kate Beckinsale.

The pyjama look was a dangerous yet effectively stand out look at Dolce and Gabbana's S/S 09 show with models wearing satin pjs worthy of Hugh Hefner. I was always quite cautious with this trend as the 'underwear as outerwear' look is hard enough to pull off without looking like Jenna Rink from Suddenly Thirty (aka: 13 going on 30), so the pyjama trend is difficult in the sense that you want the sophistication to ooze from this look without it being tacky and just sheer weird.
Kate Beckinsale pulled the look off with a gold edged, black satin ensemble which looked beyond chic and effortless accompanied with simple yet statement heels and a tough cinched belt. Now with that said; Hugh Hefner, take Beckinsale's lead as this is how it's meant to be done...even though you are a boy. A satin robes and pyjama boy nonetheless.
