We love lingerie. Whether we’re wearing something black and lacy for ourselves, or something sultry to show off to someone special, we can’t deny the power that comes with an empowering lingerie set. In our eyes, what we wear under our clothes is just as valuable as what we wear on top — and this is why we love the idea of wearing lingerie as clothing. No one proves this better than Kristen Bell, whose lingerie-inspired looks are asking us to reassess what qualifies as clothing.
