Amal Clooney makes lingerie look good.

In case you've missed it, undergarments, like corsets, bustiers and more, have subtly made their way to the forefront of celebrity outfits and fashion. Stars like Kim Kardashian West and Hailey Baldwin (See: the white lace she wore to Coachella) are commonly wearing the trend, pairing super-sexy tops with their favorite pairs of denim. 

Now, George Clooney's better half is joining in on the sultry fashion trend. Last night, the mom-of-two headed to Anna Wintour's home in NYC (so of course she dressed to the nines) to celebrate the new editor-in-chief of Glamour magazine, Samantha Barry, wearing a vintage red corset from by Isabelle Allard with black skinny jeans and ankle boots. Revealing her post-baby, the star looked amazing and sultry, but not at the expense of class.

Every Time Rihanna Wore Lingerie IRL

While the color, fabric and strap details are insanely sexy, the show-stopping piece actually covers a lot of skin between the off-shoulder sleeves and train. And, since we normally see the human rights lawyer in suits, this outfit is the perfect blend of sultry appeal and classy style.

Love the trend? Check out all of the celebs that wear lingerie out! 

Bella Hadid

When wearing undergarments out, you don't want to ooze 150 percent sex appeal. To maintain balance, pair a piece of lingerie, like Bella's corset she wore after the Alexandre Vauthier couture show, with distressed, baggy jeans and dad sneakers. 

Winnie Harlow

Wearing lingerie out doesn't have to be a loud statement. Sometimes, it can be just as subtle as the model's lace bandeau bra peeking out of her well-tailored, sophisticated ensemble at the Dior show at Paris Couture Week. 

Olivia Munn

Don't feel relegated to lace undergarments. Try textures in velvet, suede, satin and even denim, too!

Emily Ratajkowski

Lace bustiers, bras and bodysuits are inherently sexy. To style the piece in a more fashion-forward way, it's all about layering pieces on top so that only an accent of the lace peeks through. EmRata used a lace bodysuit as the foundation to her ensemble, adding a cardigan and patterned suit over it in complementary colors to create a well-thought-out look. 

Joan Smalls

A sequined bralette? Why didn't we think of this first? It doesn't have to look costume-y either—just make sure the design is minimal and you opt for a neutral color. 

Ashley Graham

The slip dress is now universally acceptable to wear outside (thank you, Kate Moss circa the '90s)! But to take the look to the next level, add a corset around the waist for added texture. 

Ruth Negga

The illusion look doesn't always have to be so feminine. Follow in the actress' footsteps and take a more badass approach by pairing a bralette and sheer dress with leather pants and combat boots. 

Cara Delevingne

The trick to this look is to mix textures. Pair a sturdy suit material like corduroy or velvet with a strappy bralette. 

Sara Sampaio

The Canadian tuxedo got a sexy upgrade! To pull off this look, pair loose-fitting boyfriend jeans with a chambray shirt. Tuck the top in but leave the buttons open to reveal a cute bralette. 

Anna Kendrick

Believe it or not: Lingerie can have a menswear-inspired twist. The Pitch Perfect 3 star paired a La Perla bustier with a high-waist Balmain suit and pink pumps.

Josephine Skriver

The Victoria's Secret model paired a lace bodysuit with a mini ruffled skirt. 

Kim Kardashian

A bustier and a pair of tailored trousers are a powerful combination. For daytime, add a jacket for a polished look. For nighttime, ditch any outerwear and get ready to take on the town.
