The red carpet choices of four very different women converged this week, making a strong argument for the white slit dress. On Monday, Anja Rubik set tongues wagging with her daringly high-cut Anthony Vaccarello gown at the Met Ball. Claire Danes attended the same event in a more feminine J. Mendel gown, but it, too, had a slit. The following night, Kate Middleton surprised at the Thirty Club’s annual dinner in London in a demure Roland Mouret gown—with a sexy thigh-high slit. And Rihanna rounded out the bunch last night at Battleship‘s Los Angeles premiere in a leg-baring Adam Selman number. Given its red carpet frequency in the span of a week, the style is having a moment—perhaps not easily translatable in the every day, but given that it’s wedding season, inspiration for the unconventional bride?
