POLL: Let's All Talk Back

May 5 2014 - 6:51pm

On the red carpet for tonight's Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, there were glamorous gowns from the likes of Taylor Swift [1] and more than a couple of women in Zac Posen [2] — plus plenty of sexy numbers [3] — and we loved checking out each and every one [4]. But when you get down to it, it's entirely possible that the best views were as they swished away.

Anna Kendrick [5]'s seemingly simple J. Mendel was beautifully constructed when viewed from behind, and Beyoncé's Givenchy [6] Haute Couture number — jaw-dropping from the front with its embellished crystals, stones, and studs — was a force of nature when seen from the back. Kate Bosworth [7]'s Stella McCartney [8] dress, while sleeker, had a sexy open back we loved.

Another black and white dress, this time Hailee Steinfeld's Prabal Gurung [9], was spectacular from behind, and the best view of Taylor Swift's Oscar de la Renta creation [10] was surely as it walked up the carpet staircase. Rihanna, too, in a crisp white two-piece [11], was particularly fierce when viewed from the back.

With options that were sexy and others purely glamorous, which was your favorite? Take a second glance above and then vote below.
