"Show off your skin" - Black cut-out dresses

Guys, finally summer has arrived in northern Germany too - the weather is incredible, sun and about 22°C. And now the best thing: Till Thursday there's no school. Sigh, what a great life after this period of busyness.

Just left the beach chair for a little update in fashion:
Remember Ashley Olsen's appearance at last year's MET Gala? She wore a black maxi-dress with lateral cut-outs by Diane von Fursteburg and looked simply breathtaking. Who knows maybe Ash gave the essential impulse for the come back of the 90's inspired dresses - wouldn't be all that absurd since she's an Olsen. Anway similar cut-out gowns appeared as well at many spring and fall 2009 fashion shows and have become a leading trend for the current/up-coming season. Of course the stars and starlets follow the new hype and wear black cut-out dresses in short or long shape. Miranda Kerr even chose a 20's inspired Jil Sander creation in this style for the these year's MET Gala and I think she managed beeing a good "descendant" for Ash.

What do you think about these dresses? A trend you'd go with?

I love Hudson's dress. The cut outs are very unexpected considering how 'modest' the rest of the dress is.

You have a lovely blog, do you do link exchanges?

Love Grace.

Mimi said...

I agree about Miranda Kerr.
Doesn't she look adorable?
The dress makes the perfect mix between 20s chic and the current trend.

Thanks for your nice comments ☺

Brigadeiro said...

Ooh! Many many years ago I wore a black cutout long dress for my 21st...ah, so funny to see it 'back' again! :)

Not cutouts, but today I bought a Rick Owens long black dress with some sheer panels to it...does that count? Haha :)

The Clothes Horse said...

I definitely wouldn't...I don't have an appropriate place to wear them. Alexis Bledel looks soooo good though, it's a surprising choice for her.

I think I saw Rumi from fashiontoast wearing this one in one of her blog posts!

i really like the black cut-out dresses, it's an interesting spin on the classic little black dress.
leighton meester also wore a black cut-out recently, hers was a little more futuristic though.

Charmaine said...
