In the year 2000 Britney was the queen of the world and so was her midriff. Fast-forward 11 years later and celebs are STILL rocking the trend, only a tad more conservative and about 90% more fashionable.
CAREY, JESSICA & JENNIFER
Roksanda Ilincic/Christian Cota/Christian Cota top, Topshop jacket and Tibi pants
Carey and Jessica MUST HAVE compared notes before heading out to Comic Con this year. BOTH of them decided to go the peek-a-boo route! And as for Jen, well we all know she’s got a set of killer abs to show off.
RIHANNA, SELENA & CAMILLA
We’re gonna go ahead and make a COMPLETELY non-scientific observation: if your name ends in an ‘A’, you’re trending, spot on, ALL THE TIME.
EMMA, ANNA, & KRISTEN
Michael Kors/Cushnie et Ochs/Vanessa Bruno
This just goes to show, a little mystery works with ANY occasion. As long as you keep it classy, and bling-free (note how these ladies are only sporting EARRINGS) you’ll be set!
NICOLE, EMMA, & LEIGHTON
Halston, Hakaan, Michael Kors
Now NORMALLY, showing legs, your midriff AND your collarbones are no-no’s but how great does Nicole look? She kept it understated and covered up her arms! If you’re going short like Emma, NUDE HEELS ARE YOUR FRIEND, and take a cue from Leighton to spice up your LBD.
GINNIFER, HALLE, MIRANDA
Topshop, Halston, Michael Kors
All these ladies look AMAZING, yet totally different. THE most important lesson about cut-outs, DON’T OVERDO IT! Showing a little midriff, be it a peek like Gennifer, a little more like Halle or on the sides like Miranda, remember that modesty is key. You don’t wanna show up looking like you wore a disastrous swim suit.
