There’s just something about a backless dress. It doesn’t even matter if it’s silk or velvet, short, or floor-skimming. There’s just something about the reveal of some back that’s both seductive and mysterious, leaving plenty to the imagination while still inviting a peak of what could be. We imagine wearing a silky, full-length gown through the corridors of a hotel far, far away — much like Miranda Kerr in her backless dress in Tokyo.The model showed off a floral dress with a peek-a-boo back, inspiring us to see our floral dresses in a new light.

In the video, we see Miranda fulfilling our fantasy of strutting down hallways far away, this time in Tokyo. We can almost imagine the faint sound of heels on the carpet and the sweet smell of perfume in the air. This back is screaming old-school glamor, and we can’t get enough. Not every occasion is a backless dress occasion, but the ones that promise romance and a pinch of magic surely are.

Whether you accessorize your backless gown with red lips, black stilettos, or bare feet, you’re sure to feel special once you step into your dress. The rest is just icing on the cake! We’ve rounded up five backless dresses to get you feeling ready for any adventure that comes your way.
