Bobbie's Tuesday Trend was leather this week, and she showed the ladies how to wear the current fad in a classy way… and explored some past versions of the edgy fabric.

This, of course, meant footage of KLG from an old music video, strutting her stuff in a pair of gold leather pants. It was pretty magical.

"Leather has come a long way," joked Bobbie.

"I'd kill to look like that again," said KLG, watching herself dance in sparkly cowhide and lamenting that she probably can't get into that particular pair anymore. "That will never happen."

Apparently, KLG also had a red leather suit that she'd been hoping to show but was tragically unable. Hoda acted scandalized by this admission, but "don't be so shocked," said Bobbie, who revealed a shot of Hoda in a bright purple leather dress.
