Leighton Meester has been wearing a lot of black and white the last few months, but her latest dress, worn Wednesday evening at the Hollywood premiere of her new film "Life Partners," is a standout in more ways than one. Elegant but flirty midriff cutout? Check. Strategically placed stripes for maximum body shaping flattery? Double check.

Yes, all-over stripes can be tricky to pull off but, as Leighton demonstrated with her Cushnie et Ochs ensemble, panels in alternating directions can help instead of hurt by visually cinching the waist or elongating the torso. Finished off with a red lip and a sleek green clutch, she looks effortlessly radiant.
