The maxi-dress is still going strong, as evidenced by its regular appearance on the red carpet. This weekend Nicole Scherzinger modelled the latest trend in maxis, the slashed-to-the-thigh number, at the Cars 2 premiere in LA. Flanked by her long-time beau and Formula One champ Lewis Hamilton, the American X Factor judge wowed the crowds in her raspberry-hued one-shoulder gown that showed off her ultra-toned legs. We just adore the colour contrast of her glossy dark mane against the bright pink of the dress.
Also working a slit-to-there satin maxi in a jewel tone was British actress Emily Mortimer, who voices one of the characters in the cartoon film. Like Nicole, Emily emphasised her teeny waist with a belt. Both ladies kept the focus on their dresses with classic leg-lengthening nude courts.
Long live the maxi!
