When you think of bodycon dressing, you likely imagine a skin-tight Hervé Leger bandage dress—the kind that Kim Kardashian wore to the clubs in the mid-to-late 2000s. But this week, A-listers proved that a body-hugging ensemble can, in fact, be sophisticated, modern, and formal instead. From accentuated waistlines to ribbed knits, celebrities are rocking clingy silhouettes.

Just take Selena Gomez, who stepped out for dinner at the Santa Monica hotspot Giorgio Baldi wearing an affordable Reformation sweater dress. With its thick ribbing, it clung to all the right places. She styled the LBD perfectly, with a sequin Fendi Baguette bag and leopard-print slingback heels. Another star who nailed a night-out look? Lily Allen, who was spotted leaving the Duke of York’s Theatre in London donning a two-piece set from Edeline Lee in a buttery yellow. The cropped silhouette of her top (and the flash of her abs!) felt sexy and polished against her A-line skirt.

Vampy cocktail dresses also had a moment on the red carpets this week. At a Variety event honoring Young Hollywood in L.A., Sydney Sweeney embraced Alexander McQueen’s leather gown with a corseted top and cinched waist. At an after-party for The National Theatre in London, Taylor Russell—another starlet to watch—shined in Loewe’s strapless dress in a thick brown wool. The built-in peplum may have nodded back to the 2010s, but the striking design felt very much 2023.
