Simple, sexy and stunning. Three words to describe Brazilian model Alessandra Ambrosio’s look on the red carpet last week and being the eagle eyed fashionistas that we are at Team LBD we have noticed a trend forming: the thigh-split. The stunning model, who has worked with the likes of Victoria’s Secret and high street favourite NEXT, turned up to the Museum Of Fine Arts’ Mario Testino Exhibition, to support her photographer friend in a black corseted maxi gown with a daring split that she worked like a true pro for the paparazzi. Comparisons to Angelina Jolie’s Oscars pose were inevitable, but the model embraced the long black dress and its sexiness, proving why she is one of the most sought after ladies in the business. If you fancy rocking a daring thigh-split like Alessandra, then this simple black dress from The Style Standard is ideal. Less restrictive than a corset body, this dress is flowing and comfortable. Its classic style will never date and Alessandra's choice of simple yet high fashion silver cuff sets off the dress perfectly- take note! You can re-create this bold look with a chunky bangle from our go-to brand for affordable jewellery, Fiorelli and this amazing double chain ring from Byrogue. Simple black court shoes tie everything together. So why not adopt the Angelina Jolie pose yourself next time you hit the town? If Alessandra can do it...
