There’s a new trend in Hollywood – split dresses – but which stars are doing it right?
One leg good, two legs better. That’s the new rule as stars hit the town in dresses split to the thigh or higher.
These double-split styles are not for the faint-hearteD. Don’t try it without gym membership, fake tan, extra high heels and a lot of bottle. Plus, if you dare go as high as Abbey Clancy, an eye-watering appointment at the waxing clinic.
So who’s looking pin-sharp on the red carpet and who’s in need of a leg-up?
Dramatic entrance from singer Taylor, 23, in this daring black Elie Saab gown. The sheer panels help to keep the dress in place and stop it revealing too much flesh as she parties all night long.
Justin Bieber’s actress ex, 21, wows the Teen Choice awards in a green cut-out Cushnie et Ochs dress with double thigh-high slits. It wins serious style points thanks to the simple style and high neckline.
Don’t try the double-splits in your casual gear. Model Heidi, 40, now an America’s Got Talent judge, lets it all hang out in a black vest and twin-split skirt on a stroll in Los Angeles. Not a good look.
Pop star Ellie, 26, sings on the X Factor in a daring dress that gives the illusion of being completely bare down the sides. But the fashion jury is split too. Ultimately, it’s trashy not flashy, leaving too little to the imagination.
The Made In Chelsea star, 23, nearly came a cropper when a sudden gust caught her Sass & Bide dress. There’s nothing stylish about this look – strapless AND slashed is taking it way too far.
Britain’s Got Talent judge Alesha, 35, cleverly shows off her best assets at the show’s auditions in this black high-neck top with an Aqua Amarillo double-split black maxi skirt.
Strictly hopeful Abbey, 27, shows off her toned legs at an awards bash this week in a sexy black Julien Macdonald double-split dress. It’s saved from looking too trashy by its sheer panels – and sheer simplicity.
Top marks to model Daisy, 24, for transforming this look and making it feminine and playful in a flirty pleated and slashed pale pink Topshop skirt during London Fashion Week.
