I guess this WAS the event at which to pull out your leather pants. (Which, by the way, we all owned in 2001. They sold them at The Gap. My friend Victoria once spent an entire work day calling every Gap in the greater Los Angeles area looking for a pair of their hot pink leather pants in her size.) Leather or not, every pair of trousers in this slideshow is low rise.
