Summer fashion is all about channeling an easy breezy vibe and looking incredible on hot Summer nights. Luckily, our own Allison McNamara is bringing you seven sexy dress options — from backless to brights, to all the chiffon and florals in between — meant to put the sizzle in your warm-weather wear. Special thanks to The Redbury Hotel and Cleo Restaurant. Hair and makeup by Samantha Touw.
Giovanna Battaglia, the lovely street-style favorite and stylist for W magazine, was photographed at the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala in Cannes wearing this provocative black gown. Her slender waist is on display, although she covered up with a fringed tuxedo jacket. It's not a huge surprise that a fashion editor would make such a daring choice, so we ask you: would you wear this dress?
