Sexy Silhouettes

Christina Ricci's Givenchy dress seemed to have won the jackpot prize in this year's MET Costume Institute Gala. What made this gown so special aside from the fact that it was one of the few that actually stick with the "superheroes" theme? I say, it's all about the silhouette. And yes, the silhouette is making a dramatic comeback this season (or did it ever leave?) and it comes back with a fearless vengeance.

If you haven't gone to the gym lately to tone those sagging parts of your body, fret not sweethearts. You don't have to have J.Lo's bum or Madonna's toned muscles to actually look stunning in gowns and dresses layered and wrapped with tulle, nets, silk, nylon and rayon.

These ethereal pieces gives back sublimity to sexuality and sensuality without being lewd nor offensive. It makes sexuality intriguing once again by showing just the right amount of body details and leaves the rest to the imagination of the looker.

The runway was flooded with silhouette inspirations this year. From Marc Jacobs and his "nurses" to V.F. Vandervorst, Rodarte, Christopher Kane and Armand Basi and we will not be surprise if this trend will be a hurricane that will blow lewdness away brought about by the Tom Fords (who glorified pornography in the Gucci runway), D&G's gang rape ads and Joseph Fritzels of the fashion world...
