CelCelebrity Red-Carpet Trend: Cropped Tops(from millionlooks))
It was simply inevitable that cropped tops would appear on the red carpet in plenty. The Spring/ Summer 2012 fashion trend that abounded in designers’ collections was destined to become popular with stars who had flawless figures to showcase. The interesting thing is that we have expected only the younger generation of celebrities (those under 20) to wear bra tops, but instead everyone from AnnaLynn McCord to Gwyneth Paltrow wore the cropped top design to a number of glamorous events.
Proenza Schouler, Dolce & Gabanna, Emilio Pucci, Prada and other fashion brands showed us their vision of the trendy cropped top this season. Some of these tops were long enough to almost cover the midriff while others were very short and could work as a fancy substitution of bras. To avoid spreading a vulgar look designers decided to provide greater coverage of other areas of a woman’s body. They paired the cropped top with maxi or midi skirts, high-waisted skirts and pants as well as pleated skirts to avoid focusing attention on a bare stomach.
Among the celebrities who have already tried the hot Spring/ Summer 2012 trend there are Nicole Scherzinger, Selena Gomez, Scarlett Johansson, Miley Cyrus, Dakota Fanning and others. Gwyneth Paltrow was the first to wear one of Emilio Pucci’s risqué designs while Selena Gomez’s one was the most daring.
