Dita Von Teese Wears Vivienne Westwood at Vivienne Westwood London Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2009 Show

Frock Me Baby: Show Those Shoulders

Cleavage, midriff, legs — body parts known for their sexiness. But shoulders, those are a woman’s subtly sensual weapons. There was lots of shoulder love this year, as exemplified by Dita Von Teese in Vivienne Westwood. When picking the perfect party frock this season, show those shoulders. Whether it’s one-shoulder, off-shoulder, cutout, or puff sleeve dresses, allow the sculptured part of your body be the focus.

My mom used to always tell me how I have such beautiful shoulders and back and I would get so mad because I didn't understand how shoulders/back could possibly be attractive but as I've gotten older I definitely like emphasizing my shoulders and/or back. especially because i have no cleavage to show off ;)

uh, why are there only ugly puff-sleevers in the widget? And they don't even SHOW the shoulders, just hideously emphasize them!! wtf Dita's dress rocks, though. So do her boobs.

The pink Armani is cute but the rest, too 80's for me!

A neckline that low should not be photographed from above. It definitely doesn't allow the dress to emphasize her shoulders unless she's standing. Nice try.

I think she looks amazing, but she's really the only person who should wear a dress like that since she's a walking pin-up. Love the daring neckline and the shoes!

yeah, mystique - I was thinking the exact same thing! I love Dita's dress, but I don't like any of the dresses in the widget...
