Love It or Hate It? BCBG Open Back Cocktail Dress

BCBG Max Azria at ShopStyle

The retailer that sells this BCBG Open Back Cocktail Dress ($298) describes it as sexy, and that certainly isn't a lie. Observe — it has an open back, open sides, and a keyhole in the middle. The color is gorgeous and the draping lavish, but I would have liked it more if the sides were covered. Am I being too modest?

Irt's more of a dance dress & her legs are too stickly, but it's a good dress.

I hate it. Wouldn't be caught dead in it even if I were a figure skater.

ugh the lady at the bcbg store tried to convince me that the dress was very flattering on, I had to roll my eyes.

I'm not sure where you could wear that too. It's too slutty for my tastes.

For me, it sucks, but it's not so much revealing the skin as the way it was done. Plus, I don't like the way the bottom half looks with the top.

So many open cuts are distracting and kind of classless

no, you're not being too modest, Fab! I hate that people think modesty is a bad thing - just because our society has no more social guidelines as to what is acceptable doesn't mean that people shouldn't be allowed to show their body respect by not showing it to the world - on the other hand, though, there is certainly a way to look amazing even in an immodest outfit, but this is not it - this dress is just awful...

I have boobs, therefore I wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole.

I think it would look cute on the right person. Maybe if it were black it wouldn't seem so grossly skanky?

I dont like this dress its not unique and doesnt look as though it hangs well (bit frumpy) the colours nice but it looks a bit short or maybe the style wrong On the model it looks a bit cheap; it doesnt complement her figure much

nice idea- but I have always hated the "wrapped fabric:" look. Plus about 10% of people could actually pull it off and about 95% of people that think they can are wrong.

I like BCBG but this does look slutty. Swimsuit + Dress = Figure skating outfit. Undo either the keyhole, or the side cutouts, and it'd actually be a hot dress that doesn't scream, "Look at me I need attention!"

Looks a bit trashy on the model.

This shows way too much skin to pass for a cocktail dress.

sorry I feel like slutty was a poor choice of word...because it isn't even that bad, I just couldn't think of a better one...

I think this is a perfect example of a dress that JUST crosses the line from sexy to a little bit slutty. A few tweaks could make it classier (like covering up the sides as fabsugar mentioned or having it over lace as someone else mentioned.
