From cutouts to sheer pants, designers seemingly challenge themselves every season to flash skin in ways that feel unexpected and new. This was demonstrated by many of this week's best dressed ladies — with help from their stylists, of course.
Kiernan Shipka, with the aid of stylists Jill Lincoln and Jordan Johnson, continued maturing her aesthetic in the above Dior look, which playfully reveals a toned set of abs. Her former "Mad Men" co-star also made a skin-revealing statement this week in a pair of Lela Rose sheer pants.
Selena Gomez, who's also been elevating her look as she's gotten older — with help from stylist Kate Young — wore a plunging neckline that still felt somewhat demure thanks to the dress's white color and attached neck piece. Taraji P. Henson, in an Alexander Wang dress that exposed small slivers of skin, looked like a more tasteful, toned-down version of her "Empire" character Cookie Lyon.
Meanwhile, Dakota Johnson (also styled by Young), Sandra Bullock and Diane Kruger all wore dresses with clever sheer panels that read more interesting than trashy. See it all in the gallery below.
