Jena Malone's Cut-Out Reem Acra Gown Flashes Some Serious Stomach With Sexy Double Slits
If there's one trend I truly hope to see stick around, it's the dramatic cut-out look. Cut-outs work on everyone from Daenerys Targaryen to Jena Malone, who flashed some stomach in Reem Acra at the the International Medical Corps’ Annual Awards Dinner Ceremony last Thursday night. I am obsessed with the indie darling's sartorial decisions of late, and this stunning gown is no exception.
The Hunger Games star opted for a fresh-off-the-Spring 2015 runway black strapless cut out dress with sequined stripes lining the full skirt and stomach panel. She paired the dreamy frock with blood red-lipstick, a metallic box clutch, white cap-toed Giuseppe Zanotti pumps, and roomy cape tossed over her shoulders for warmth. Her new ginger locks were worn slicked back to highlight her lovely face and collarbone.
Take a peek at her gorgeous Reem Acra number. I guarantee you'll be tempted to take a pair of scissors to the bodice of your old prom dress and work some DIY magic.
I love the edgy combo of the ribcage-bearing cut-outs with the soft drape of the dress. Cut-outs are such a great way to show some skin while wearing otherwise fairly conservative silhouettes — perfect for those of us who tend to shy away from body-con. Malone's general look is a study in this kind of bold, covered-up (but not too covered) sexiness and it's always such a treat to see photos of her at an event. Her style is offers a fabulous break from the sparkly mermaid dresses celebs tend to wear for fancy appearances.
