15 Celebs Who Traded Crop Tops For Clothes With Surprising Cutouts

Miley Cyrus Cutout Dress Croppe

I never would have thought to show off lower-middle under boob. Thankfully someone designed a dress so now I can, if I ever feel so inclined. Regular cleavage and the standard upper thigh slit have become a bit expected (though we still see a lot of them), so designers have grabbed their scissors to create new cutouts that show off body parts that I don’t even think have proper names. (What is the area called diagonally under your armpit?) And the trend doesn’t stop with clothing. Swimsuits are getting chopped and slashed to produce cutouts that will give you much stranger looking tanlines than a farmer’s tan.

Here are 15 celebrities who decided to show off seldom seen body parts with surprising cutouts:

1. Karlie Kloss188017519CC00065_2013_Victo

There are many ways to show off your cleavage, but Karlie Kloss‘s triangular boob cutout is a new one. I wonder if her style twin BFF Taylor Swift is going to copy it?

2. Cara Delevingne
'Charles James: Beyond Fashion' Costume Institute Gala

I was already confused about Cara Delevingne‘s top  (is it a wrap or an intricate swimsuit top?) before I noticed the cutouts. Whatever it is, I know it’s not meant for big boobs.

3. Irina Shayk

Irina Shayk has been known to wear some outrageous things–remember the hooded gown she wore to Cannes 2014? I cannot decide whether this dress is conservative because of the high neckline and one sleeve or scandalous because of the cutout and slit. It’s too Dr Jekyll/Mr Hyde.

4. Kim Kardashiande jour magazine kardashian 050912

Wow. Kim Kardashian‘s top/bra/zebra stripes is another piece of clothing that I don’t know the proper name of, or where you place your double-sided tape.

5. Emma WatsonEmma Watson attends the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.

Sometimes we see a lot of the same old stuff on the red carpets. I guarantee we have never seen Emma Waston‘s diagonal V-neckline and triangular oblique cutout before.

6. Selena GomezSelena Gomez arrives at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden ArenaThe neon trim that snakes around Selena Gomez‘s dress almost distracted me from the curvy cutout.

7. Anna Kendrick

Instead of risking a wardrobe malfunction (note the placement of the diagonal skirt cutout), Anna Kendrick wisely decided to add lace panels to the cutouts. Good call.

8. Beyoncé

'Beyonce: Life Is But A Dream' New York Premiere

Thankfully Beyoncé also decided to add sheer, embellished panels to her chest cutouts otherwise the only thing that would be preventing her from exposing a nipple would be a glittery strip of fabric.

9. Miley CyrusMiley Cyrus Vh1 Divas Black Cutout Diamond Dress

I never would have expected to describe anything Miley Cyrus wore as demure, but this long sleeve dress is the most covered up thing we’ve seen her in since her Hannah Montana days–diamond butt-revealing cutouts and all.

If you need a way to show off your armpit cleavage, Ciara has found the perfect dress.

11. Jennifer LopezActress/singer Jennifer Lopez arrives at the BAFTA Brits To Watch event held at the Belasco Theatre on July 9, 2011 in Los Angeles, California. (Photo by Kevork Djansezian/Getty Images)

Jennifer Lopez shows that you can still wear a dress with a hole in it. Just cut the rip into a nice shape and add a sparkly sleeve. Tadddaaaaa, you have a new dress.

13. Lucy Halepeoples choice awards 5 120112

I sort of get Lucy Hale‘s asymmetric one-sleeved neckline, but I don’t really get the half skirt.

14. Kim Kardashian

It looks like Kim Kardashian has a thing for cutouts (see #4). I have no idea how this strapless dress is staying up considering there’s a massive keyhole in the front, complete with silver dangly trim. Kim must use one hell of a body tape.

15. Rumer Willisrumer-willis-pantiesBased on the three boob t-shirt Rumer Willis wore, I would have guessed she was more of a top cutout type of girl, but this upper thigh exposing dress has proven me very wrong.
