Would You Wear A Dress Slit Way Up-To-There?


Between the Fall runway shows and Monday night’s Costume Institute Ball—think Ashley Olsen in vintage Dior or Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in Burberry—the upper-leg area hasn’t gotten so much attention since Suzanne Somers’ ThighMaster heyday. “We wanted to do something fun,” said Jason Wu of the hip-high slit on the skirt he made for Diane Kruger’s march up the Met’s steps. While most designers go straight for red-carpet appeal with sky-high slashes, Joseph Altuzarra and Jonathan Saunders whipped up slightly more casual takes on the look at their February shows. Trust us, though, they’re still guaranteed to keep the flashbulbs popping.

    (I wouldn’t, but I’m also not invited to the Costume Institute Ball…)
    Ashley looks fabulous in that dress, great combination of hardness in shape with sweet associations.

    I don’t love the dress, but she looks really pretty in it.
    It actually looks adorable in it.

  5. Verg says:

    Without the sleeves I would wear the dress. The sleeves are too much

    She looks great; but she should be more confident and hold her shoulders back more.
