Bare a shoulder like Mrs. Obama



Maggy_london_2Remember all the fuss over whether First Lady Michelle Obama's one-shoulder inauguration gown worked?

Well, love it or hate it, she was spot on trendy with the whole shoulder baring thing. Those suckers have been showing up lately on lots of celebrities, which means they MUST be cool.

The look lends itself to showcasing another continuing trend, the statement necklace. But the asymmetrical neckline is also interesting enough on its own to forgo any neck adornments.

I'm on the fence with this one. Some of the one-shoulder looks I've seen on the fashion pages are really elegant, but I've also seen versions that end up making one or both of the "girls" look a little outta whack. Take, for instance, this Maggy London crinkle chiffon number (shown above). The color and fabric are beautiful. But doesn't it kind of look like the model's left breast is in a sling?

This Banana Republic dress and this Max and Cleo version avoid the boob bondage issue. But this Adrianna Papell jersey dress? Not so much.
