It's official: Latex is the 'it' look of NYFW

New York Fashion Week is upon us, which means the biggest names in fashion are wearing all of the hottest upcoming trends. And if Kim Kardashian and Ashley Graham are any indication, it seems that latex is one of them.

The rubber material first made headlines when Kardashian wore a light pink latex dress back in 2014, and ever since then it’s been seen on a number of celebrities, including Beyoncé and Chrissy Metz. The look has yet to really take off; however, with the rise of the barely there dress seen all over the New York Fashion Week red carpets, it seems that takeoff is imminent. Hollywood’s best dressed are now crossing over to the rubber trend, which hugs all of these women’s curves in just the right places.
