Aug 26 2014 - 11:41am

Even if you're not typically the "got it, flaunt it" type, there's a way to channel Emmys night [1]'s very sexy cutouts. Hey, if Lady Mary can do it, so can we. The Downton Abbey star [2], along with a crew of Hollywood's style setters, made cutouts — from the very subtle to the all-out sultry — the star of last night's red carpet. So no matter if you consider yourself more of a wallflower or the life of the party, we're making the sexy trend work for every girl — and every body. Just scroll through to find the cutout style that speaks to you, and shop it right here.

Michelle Dockery

Michelle Dockery may have given us the most modest take on the trend in her Rosie Assoulin [3] coloblock number, which came complete with a keyhole cutout at the waist.

Claire Danes

For the intermediate: Claire Danes [4]'s Givenchy [5] gown got a boost of sex appeal from the lacy side and back cutouts [6]

Lizzy Caplan

Lizzy Caplan's bold, backless Donna Karan [7] Atelier gown is not for those weary of exposing a little skin, though if you're warming up to the idea of a baring skin in front, this is a good place to start.

Kate Mara

Kate Mara's J. Mendel gown offered small snippets of skin via asymmetrical draping at the bodice. The jeweled neckline [8] provided a bit more coverage along the bust to lend a bit more modesty.

Gwen Stefani

Quite the opposite, Gwen Stefani [9]'s Versace [10] put her chest on display with sleek cutouts on her open V neck.

Julie Bowen

The Modern Family star's halter-style cutout Peter Som [11] highlighted her arms — and her décolletage — with a plunging cutout at the middle.

Joan Smalls

Dare to bare? Then channel Joan Smalls's sultry style with a dress cut down to there — and side cutouts to boot!
