Best Of 2012: The Split Dress

December 23, 2012
This is one trend I’ve certainly admired this year but haven’t managed to find the time, the dress or event for that matter, to pull it off. It’s the Split Dress loves. I know it may seem vain, but I am in love with the peekaboo concept of this dress. Many a celebrity have donned this style to red carpet events but let’s pick our favourite from the bunch. 
 
1.First up is Angelina Jolie aka ‘The Leg’ who made this trend noticeable this year in the first place. It was actually after this appearance that the phrase ‘to pull an Angelina’ was coined. Angelina is jolie, to use a cliche pun. She slays when she feels like it. The minute she stepped on the red carpet at the Golden Globe Awards in a dark velvet dress with a thigh high split, we all knew she meant business. And that sly grin on her face wasn’t there just for show. She dressed to kill.

2. Week after week, Jennifer Lopez blew me away with her wardrobe as an American Idol judge. I was in awe when she stepped out in a fuchsia pink Michael Kors Slash gown and a pair of  Gucci Leight T-strap sandals. Simple but stunning! Yes the dress cost a whooping $3,995 but (if you’ve got the bucks) it’s worth every penny. Looking hot J!

3. Boy, Rihanna always gets it right for me so this entry might be a little bit biased. You have to admit though that she’s got the best legs in game and she decided to show up at Stella McCartney Presentation in a custom made Armani teal thigh high split dress, her legs stole the show. The dress which was reminiscent of sexy lingerie had a killer low cut plunge at the back. Her blonde locks added some sass to complete the look.

4.Nigerian designer, Yvonne Nwosu got us all doing what we do best (talking) when she stepped out wearing one of her one Vonne designs at the Y! Magazine Black Ball. She was sporting a daringly sexy thigh high split off-the shoulder dress. As much as I want to deny it, she looks hot damn! Hair: on point, make-up: wow, ankle  strap sandals: very trendy, confidence: oozing. I just love her demeanor in this pic.

5.Ghanaian star, Yvonne Nelson has definitely stepped up her game this year in my opinion. She received best actress award and posted this pic of herself on her Instagram. Her split may not be as high as the others, but girl killed it. She smashed that pink dress I must say.
