Fashion Collection girl 07

To make sure the women in the audience (including Brandy, Bai Ling, and chart-topping singer Bettina) got a little eye candy, the designer sent a few male models out wearing nothing but a skimpy pair of camouflage underwear, then added a variation of hooded superhero capes worn over the undies, unzipped for effect at runway's end. One was covered in marijuana leaves, another a variation of the American flag.

But that skin show was nothing to what Christian Audigier presented on the women. There was the white micro-mini tee-shirt dress, worn over tan panties, garter belt, and sheer stockings ; the black bra, garter belt, and sheer stockings worn with a wide-open olive-toned raincoat; skin-tight patterned gold leggings worn with a slouchy, off-the-shoulder patterned tee (shades of "Flashdance" and Eighties style there); and a black bra, paired with a black feather boa, and a see-through pair of tan knickers worn over black panties. Hooker chic, indeed, and the sort of streetwear that sends a working-girl message.

Audigier's capper, a series of looks that combined completely sheer tulle skirts in bright colors of pink, green and electric blue displaying the panties and garters underneath, paired with hoodies and matching berets, are an evening look that isn't likely to make it to any Hollywood red carpets.

But as David Hasselhoff, who brought his teenage daughter Hayley to see the collection, commented to Audigier after the show, "I liked it; the girls looked great!" No word on whether he'll let his girl show her Audigier underwear in public, however.
