In our weekly roundup of the looks that are gaining fashion ground (and the ones losing their style street cred), we noticed several stars flaunting their curves in second-skin stunners and selecting dresses with out-of-the-box hemlines. Plus, we spotted one celeb playing a game of “Earrings vs. Décolletage,” and we’re pretty sure she lost.
Up: Body-con dresses. Our idea of a summer dress is long, flowy, easy, breezy … you get the point. But apparently, when you’re out in Hollywood, body-con is the way to go — this week, anyway. Britney Spears led the pack in her blue bandage dress, coordinating with the carpet at The Smurfs 2 premiere. Then there were the Victoria’s Secret angels Karlie Kloss and Behati Prinsloo who stunned in their berry-colored minis at an event for the brand in N.Y.C. Rounding out the bevy of beauties in body-con, Sharon Stone proves the style has no age boundaries in her white head-turner.
Up: Unique Hemlines. If Diane Kruger is doing it, then you know it’s a thing. The actress selected a printed Mary Katrantzou dress with an asymmetrical hemline at the Fox All-Star party in West Hollywood Following in her fashion-forward footsteps were Emma Roberts in a high-low Michael Kors gown, Amanda Seyfried in this ruffle-trim Givenchy number and Kate Upton’s upper-thigh baring LBD.
Down: Cleavage-grazing earrings. Questionable cleavage has emerged as a red carpet accessory this week. But the accessory we’re really confused by is Tyra Banks‘s mile-long tassel earrings that dangle all the way to her décolletage. And while stars aren’t going to stop showing their curves, we’re pretty sure Tyra’s out-there look will not become a craze anytime soon.
