Forget opaque tights, the only way to dress your legs this winter is with PVC. From X Factor champion, Alexandra Burke, to her musical mentor, Cheryl Cole, and fellow Girl Aloud-about-town, Sarah Harding, the latest fashion craze to hit the celebrity circuit is PVC leggings.
She may only just be getting used to the media attention, but Alexandra proved she's got the legs factor when she wore a pair of the shiny trousers for a trip to the music studio on Wednesday.
It was not long before the singer sensation's mentor, Cheryl Cole, followed in the her rubber-clad footsteps, when she teamed her PVC leggings with a coral duffle coat for an interview on GMTV, on Thursday.
And they're not the only celebrities who are fans of the plastic fantastic. Sarah Harding was pictured out on the town last night in her own take on the style - partying until the early the hours in a red T-shirt, matching shoes and of course, PVC leggings.
Other fashion-friendly stars to set the trend are Rihanna, Mischa Barton and Victoria Beckham.
So what are you waiting for? Sexy enough for a Christmas party outfit, or team yours with an understated shift dress for the day, PVC leggings are pin perfect for any occasion.
