Lace has always been categorized as more bridal than bombshell, but a few trendy stars are giving the delicate material a sexy upgrade.

Emma Watson chose a red Valentino design with a flirty satin bubble skirt for a pre-BAFTA party in February.

Like the British star, Kristen Stewart's Stella McCartney look featured a conservative neckline and long sleeves to balance out the mini's super-high hemline at the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards.

Brooklyn Decker opted to flash lots of skin (and black undergarments) in an unlined navy femme d'armes dress with a thigh-high slit at the premiere of Battleship in South Korea.

But it was Fergie who wore the boldest lace look of all -- a traffic cone orange Jean Paul Gaultier Couture creation -- at this year's Grammy Awards.
