It must be last week’s Victoria’s Secret fashion show that’s got celebs thinking about lingerie, because figure-flaunting (and just a little bit naughty) bustier dresses are showing up all over red carpets.

Naomie Harris looked like the femme fatale she plays in Skyfall at the BAFTA Awards with the contrast bustier details and sheer skirt of her black Miu Miu gown. She played up the dramatic look with a dark lip and glossy locks. At Miu Miu’s exhibition in Paris, Emma Stone went with a slightly less edgy version by the designer. The satin A-line skirt and bustier cups, red lip, and flowered handbag gave her look a 50s feel. Amanda Seyfried looked like a classic bombshell in a red bustier dress with a drop skirt by Prabal Gurung at the Hollywood Film Awards. All three actresses styled voluptuous side-parted waves to enhance to the ultra-feminine dress.
Kristen Stewart premiered the final installment of the Twilight series in an unforgettable gown by Zuhair Murad. The sheer, champagne-colored lace-and-satin bustier dress was sexier than we normally see on Stewart—it wouldn’t be out of place on a star like Blake Lively—without going over-the-top.
