Leave it to fashion icon Lynn Wyatt to come up with the perfect outfit for a James Bond-themed evening — a black leather gown, yes gown, by German design house Talbot Runhof.
It was just the ticket for Mercury's "Mercury Royale" gala on stage at Wortham Theater Center. "To wear an evening gown in black leather, isn't it great?" Lynn said. "It's got just the right feel for a Bond girl."
Lynn accessorized with a bejeweled belt and gilded dagger that had been sitting on her library desk. To dress it up, she said, "I took some of the Chanel stuff that Karl (Lagerfeld) has given me and put it on the dagger." Thus, the stylet was dazzling with several strands of Chanel pearls. Sweet.

International Best Dressed Hall of Famer Lynn Wyatt never fails to turn heads with her flawless fashion taste. The Amschwand Sarcoma Cancer Foundation luncheon featuring Carolina Herrera was no exception.
Her blonde lion's mane perfectly coiffed, Wyatt stood out among the well-heeled women gathering for the luncheon at the Westin Oaks Hotel. Her gray slacks trimmed in black were from the CH Carolina Herrera boutique in the Galleria. She dressed them up with a black pullover top from Louis Vuitton and added a dramatic cut-out, trapunto shawl from Armani. When Wyatt once wore the wrap to dinner with Annette and Oscar de la Renta, Annette wanted to make sure that Oscar took careful notice of the creative design in interlocking circles.
Wyatt added killer black patent leather Louboutin pumps and carried a Fendi clutch that was a gift from a friend. Finishing the ensemble on a high note, Wyatt added gold bracelets, necklace and earrings. It was the ideal casual-but-oh-so-chic ensemble for sitting at the head table with Herrera, her long-time friend.
