Karolina Kurkova Wearing Cutout Dress | Jan. 8, 2013

Karolina Kurkova's Killer LBD (and the Art of Just Sexy Enough)

We'll just come out and say it: Karolina Kurkova's Cushnie et Ochs sheath during yesterday's TCA press tour may just be one of the sexiest LBDs in recent (event) history. It's not always easy to take a statement piece off the runway and make it work, but the star of The Face did just that, giving this look from Cushnie's Spring '13 runway a seriously sultry real-life twist. The trick is a skilled balance of minimalist accessories and easy, natural hair and makeup that lets the dress — and her knee-high Alexander Wang gladiator heels — take the focus. While the footwear might be harder to pull off, there's no denying that the strategic cutouts help sculpt a superflattering silhouette, showcasing Kurkova's best assets. Of course, employing the same styling tactics for your own cutout LBD means looking for the best cut for your body. Opt for a shoulder-baring cut like Karolina's if you're looking to flaunt your upper body (and even distract from your bottom half); showcase your middle with subtle cutouts at the torso to draw attention to a tiny waist. Bottom line: you don't have to have a supermodel body to achieve the jaw-dropping effect. Apply the ultrasexy styling tactic to your own real life with our editors' picks to shop now.
