Celebrities in leather are abundant these days. One popular TV personality recently spotted donning leather with lace was Maria Menounos.

The actress slash journalist wore a delicate black lace top over a pleated leather mini skirt when she attended Day 1 of the iHeartRadio Music Festival held in Las Vegas just last week. She capped off her tough yet girly attire with coin earrings, a cuff bracelet, and a pair of clip toe booties.

Well what do you think?

Personally, I’d say she actually looks fabulous up until you see those booties, would you agree? If I’m not mistaken, Maria is a petite lady so she should stick to leg lengthening shoes like classic pumps. Of course, this is all personal preference. Other than that detail I would say she got the look right to a T.

Now on to that skirt. It’s always nice to see leather in some other style aside from the usual pencil. That pleated mini can actually be a versatile piece, one you can even wear with flats. In case you’re curious, Maria’s skirt is from Alice + Olivia, called the Box Pleated Leather Skirt. You can find the piece at Shopbop:

It is pricey so do be ready to splurge. If you want less expensive options, here are a couple from Parker and Free People, also available at Shopbop. To copy Maria’s look, simply pair it with a lace top and your classic black pumps or booties and you’re all set!
