Jessica Biel, Total Recall photo call, July 2012
What springs to mind when pondering crochet (as one is bound to do on occasion, hmm?) Your nan's doilies? A whimsical wedding frock? Lonely yet somewhat blissful nights crocheting in front of the box? All of these are perfectly apt suggestions and excellent uses of crochet. But crochet can also make a divine evening wear ensemble. Moving way beyond whimsy, homemade and romantic, crochet can be sexy too (please don't look to Cher for sexy crochet though). Instead, look to Jessica Biel. Her beige, toughened crochet skirt shouldn't be as sexy as it is. But hot damn. Paired with the slightly metallic singlet and nude Mary-Jane shoes (always a deceptively sexy shoe), she looks fresh, lady-like and nothing like your nan's doilies.
