From the front, we weren't stunned by this simplistic LBD; an asymmetric mini with a quirky shoulder design is actually not so quirky anymore and our attention turned to the DIY facelift being created by Kim Kardashian's super sleek up do. However, when the American socialite turned her back to flash a sultry over-the-shoulder pose to onlookers, we were left eating our words. This LBD is much more impressive from the rear view than face on – a lot like Kim herself with that infamous derriere! If you don't have the front to pull off the plummeting necklines adorned by the likes of Katie Holmes, Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz this season then a backless design is the ideal way for your to give that subtle flash of flesh that will have you turning heads, just like our favourite Kardashian. Kim was sporting this decedent ensemble at a Tinseltown bash in honour of the launch of up coming publication, Worlds Most Beautiful Magazine in which she is set to be the cover girl for their debut release. Touching ever so delicately on the fetish fashion fever with the harness-like back embellishment, trend-savvy mid-length pencil skirt and a merge of fluid and textural fabrics means Kim's dress ticks all the boxes for A/W 2011. The midnight shade flatters Kim's olive complexion so harmoniously that with her wedding to professional basketball player Kris Humphries so fast approaching, we urge Ms. K to cast her eyes over our selection of little black wedding gowns! If you aren't quite ready to sashay down the aisle but want to emulate this bride-to-be's not so virginal attire then have a glance over our pick of the best backless beauties for this season.
