Many of Lang's I-didn't-mean-to-turn-you-on minidresses referenced Azzedine Alaïa, whose influence can be seen just about everywhere these days. But, as always, Lang made the look his own.

Not quite ready to walk into the office wearing full-on dominatrix garb? Not to worryyou'll still find plenty of Lang's reliable basics to choose from.
