Known for her recent roles in Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery and Netflix’s teen drama Outer Banks, Madelyn Cline has been having fun with fashion for the past several months, not quite settling on a signature look or silhouette. But her outfit at the Vanity Fair party turned heads for all the right reasons. While at first glance it appears to be quite demure compared to the see-through mesh, body-con, and corsetted trends we have seen lately, the Givenchy gown packs a major wow moment with an exaggerated keyhole cut out in the back.
Clearly, Cline knows how to work her angles, as both she and the floor-length gown looked incredible in nearly every shot. Inspired by this elegant way of showing off a little skin—a nice surprise factor for sure—we’ve selected 12 dresses with barely there backs that are sure to make a statement at your next big event.
