Vogue World: London was not ready for Winnie Harlow. As dozens of celebrities said farewell to New York Fashion Week on Sept. 14, Harlow was 3,500 miles away in quite the party dress. With a backless silhouette and boob-window cutout, the fuzzy dress, designed by Cult Naked, was covered in technicolor fringe that shimmered as she strutted past the paparazzi in her translucent Barbie-foot heels.
Harlow, who recently debuted a new pixie cut, looked incredible as she hit the party with a chrome handbag on her arm. The model’s see-through shoes featured bedazzled ankle straps that glistened from every angle and beautifully complemented her dress. Playing with texture, the fuzzy outfit boasted layers of multi-hued fringe in shades of blue, purple, and pink.
From the front, the halter-neck dress called attention to the bodice with a massive boob-window cutout in the shape of a teardrop. From behind, a set of criss-crossed black straps held the revealing ensemble in place. Harlow kept the sparkling theme going with a set of diamond drop earrings and a matching statement ring.
Earlier in the day, Harlow arrived at the event in a low-cut evening gown from Zuhair Murad’s fall 2023 couture collection. In contrast to the all-black silhouette, the design featured a voluminous, cape-like collar that doubled as a train on the red carpet. She styled the stunning, couture gown with silver jewelry and velvet evening gloves. Paired with her second look of the night, it’s clear that Harlow was living the best of both worlds.
Even as cooler weather approaches, Harlow is among many celebrities who continue to nail the cutout trend regardless of the occasion. Other stars who have incorporated cutouts into their wardrobe recently include Issa Rae in a boob-window cutout design at the “Barbie” premiere in July and Brie Larson in a romantic, ab-window slip dress by Rodarte. Celebrities like Heidi Klum and Lori Harvey have also gotten creative with hip cutouts on the red carpet, while Bebe Rexha recently took it a step further with purposefully placed butt cutouts at the MTV VMAs.
