In our weekly roundup of the looks that are gaining fashion ground (and the ones losing their style street cred), we noticed several stars flaunting their curves in second-skin stunners and selecting dresses with out-of-the-box hemlines. Plus, we spotted one celeb playing a game of “Earrings vs. D├ęcolletage,” and we’re pretty sure she lost.

Up: Body-con dresses. Our idea of a summer dress is long, flowy, easy, breezy … you get the point. But apparently, when you’re out in Hollywood, body-con is the way to go — this week, anyway. Britney Spears led the pack in her blue bandage dress, coordinating with the carpet at The Smurfs 2 premiere. Then there were the Victoria’s Secret angels Karlie Kloss and Behati Prinsloo who stunned in their berry-colored minis at an event for the brand in N.Y.C. Rounding out the bevy of beauties in body-con, Sharon Stone proves the style has no age boundaries in her white head-turner.

Up: Unique Hemlines. If Diane Kruger is doing it, then you know it’s a thing. The actress selected a printed Mary Katrantzou dress with an asymmetrical hemline at the Fox All-Star party in West Hollywood Following in her fashion-forward footsteps were Emma Roberts in a high-low Michael Kors gown, Amanda Seyfried in this ruffle-trim Givenchy number and Kate Upton’s upper-thigh baring LBD.

Down: Cleavage-grazing earrings. Questionable cleavage has emerged as a red carpet accessory this week. But the accessory we’re really confused by is Tyra Banks‘s mile-long tassel earrings that dangle all the way to her d├ęcolletage. And while stars aren’t going to stop showing their curves, we’re pretty sure Tyra’s out-there look will not become a craze anytime soon.

I like Tyra’s look!

I love long, dangly earrings and wear them frequently. I like Tyra’s look. The cleavage is a bit much but the rest of the outfit rocks!

Banks dress is as horrible as those earrings. The way she has those Golden Globes squeezed so tightly together, there’ll be no jiggle with that wiggle.

Boo on

Spears dress looks like aSmurfette’s scuba outfit and Kruger’s hemline looks like somebody took revenge under the table with a pair of scissors. Tyra Banks dress, full length, screams “workin’ it on the boulevard”, prices on request.

Those earrings are so 70s! In my party days as a teen, they were all the rage, the longer, the better. I’d rock those again today if I found them.

to: rlrose328: look no farther than etsy. For about $25 and up you, too, can rock that world again. Just check out “long tassel earrings”.
