Cannes is a great place to get a peek at new fashion trends, since celebrities from across the globe show up to show off the hottest looks. And this season, thigh-baring slits are all the rage on Cannes red carpets. We’ve seen them at virtually every film premiere so far in an assortment of styles, and we love this bold and daring new look. Want to give this look a try? We have a host of celebs on hand to show us how to rock the slit dress style.
It’s easy to see why Bella Hadid digs this style so much. The stunning model was a vision in white with this simple-yet-dramatic dress. Showing off a fair amount of leg in some silver sandals, this looks like the perfect dress for a beach wedding (or walking the red carpet).
Susan Sarandon went for a sleek and sexy look with a forest green velvet dress that clung to every curve. The long sleeves nicely contrast with the low neckline and high, thigh-baring split. It’s an exercise in contradictions, and one Susan Sarandon pulls off to perfection.
Michelle Williams went for an impressive combination of daring and demure. At first glance, her dark blue dress looks simple and unassuming. But as she walks, a flash of leg peeks out, changing the whole tone and feel of the outfit. The result is a deeply elegant yet surprisingly sexy design.
Looking ravishing in red, Winnie Harlow rocked the thigh-slit look with a sexy number that showed off some serious leg. The layering and beading only enhanced the overall sense of glamour and drama this dress inspires.
Lily Collins went for a decidedly dreamy look with this sumptuous white gown. She looks like a fairy princess with a dramatic trail following behind her. This dress is perfect for posing on the red carpet and making a fashion statement no one will soon forget.
Looking glamorous in green, Deepika Padukone went for classic movie star style on the red carpet at Cannes. The cape adds an element of excitement and drama to what could have been an oh-so-simple green gown. But simple is out at Cannes, and thigh slits are definitely in.
