Remember when women worried about exposing their bra straps? No more. These days it's stars and straps together as celebs like Neve Campbell, Julia Roberts and Jada Pinkett step out in underwear. "Lingerie as outerwear is really comfortable," says Melrose Place's Lisa Rinna, "and really sexy."

Credit Italian designers Dolce & Gabbana, who have been showing the look for over a year. Says Heather Tom of The Young and the Restless, who loves their black bra top and bronze satin skirt: "It's fun for a party. And the bra top is a lot more supportive than a spaghetti strap."

Still, the style calls for curves—and courage. "It takes guts to wear this dress," says Beverly Margolis, manager of Los Angeles's hip Shauna Stein shop, where Jennifer Tilly and Jennifer Lopez are regulars. "It's definitely not for everyone."
