Last time we saw an ad for Sonia Rykiel's H&M lingerie collection, we wondered whether it was possible to wear anything over the the nipple rosettes and matching upper-butt embellishments. In the latest image to emerge from the campaign, Rykiel has gone in the opposite direction. The sleek pink high-waisted panties and structured tops look hot on Lara Stone and friends, but they might be worryingly Spanx-like on mere mortals. Luckily, the same Polish fashion site where Nitrolicious turned up the photo above also has another ad from the series. It does feature another set of granny panties, but they're in a more accommodating black, and they're shown with some sheer bathrobes and giant head bows—very Blair Waldorf in her boudoir.
