The lovely Gwyneth Paltrow is known to push the envelope of avant garde fashion at red carpet events, and usually does so flawlessly. Last week at the 2011 Emmy Awards Gwyneth donned a midriff bearing dress by Pucci. Gwyneth won the Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for her appearances on Glee. She received mixed reviews for her red carpet choice but we think she’s the only one who could pull this look off with the sophistication and elegance as she did.
We love that Gwyneth chose to expose some tummy with her red carpet ensemble – if anyone can show off their abs at an award show, it’s surely Gwyneth Paltrow. The Pucci dress was complete with a mock cap-sleeved crop top and high-waisted maxi skirt with the perfect amount of train. The top and bottom were connected with a sheer panel at the waist to create a true dress. The red carpet stunner was intricately detailed with sequin beading along the ethnic inspired print.
We see avant garde and ready to wear fashion trends emerged into swimwear everyday and the crop top is no exception. The 2012 Agua Bendita Swimwear Collection features the Bendito Ica Top, a cropped top with cap sleeves in a jewel toned ethnic print. This crop top features a scoop neckline and elastic band at bottom hem. This top is paired with the Bendito Ica bikini featuring a triangle top and string bottom in a sophisticated two-toned purple print. Take some inspiration from fashion designers, and Ms. Gwyneth Paltrow, and pair your swimsuit with a crop top to create a second look.
