Adriana Lima found a genius way to show off a thigh-high slit without risking wardrobe malfunction
There’s little in life that’s more fabulous than a supermodel decked out in holiday party attire, and Adriana Lima in a green velvet ~creation~ just might be THE holiday party dress to end all holiday party dresses. This is the peak, y’all.
Attending Madonna’s Evening of Music, Art, Mischief and Performance to benefit Raising Malawi in Miami this weekend, the model — fresh off the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show runway — turned heads in a green velvet outfit from designer Haider Ackermann’s fall 2016 collection.
The getup looks much like the thigh-baring gown Angelina Jolie famously wore to the Oscars in 2012, but there’s a catch: The Haider Ackermann dress has a circular cut-out to allow full leg display without any of the recent (and hilarious) Chrissy-Teigen-at-the-AMAs hooha drama.
Check out Adriana’s stunning winter party look, complete with a structural necklace and bold red lip.
Consider us inspired!
Here’s the similar green velvet skirt Ackermann sent down the runway in March.
This is how the cut-out works.
Brilliant! You can get there skirt here for $1,610 if you’re seriously smitten.
