Leather Hotpants are Back: Just Ask Leigh Lezark & Stacey Bendet

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Check out Leigh Lezark and Alice + Olivia founder Stacey Bendet at the MAC Alice + Olivia by Stacey Bendet cosmetics launch party Wednesday night. If you're thinking Lezark looks amazing in her Alice + Olivia leather exposed front zip shorts, we'd strongly concur.

Somehow, though, we missed the crest of the (stealth) leather hotpants trend this summer, and now this particular style is totally sold out everywhere. Sigh. Ah, well. We'll just have to wait for Alice + Olivia's leggings versions this fall, then—in gorgeous leather and fabulous snakeskin.
