Giving the Cold Shoulder

One of the more recent trends to come around in formal wear that I was never too excited about is the one-shoulder gown. I found the assymetry challenging to pull off and risky, and I figured it would go the way of other passing trends like bubble hems and jeweled halter necklines, and I could just wait it out.

But it's not going away! Aside from those like Kate Winslet who have sported the look for years, more celebs are giving the cold shoulder during this year's awards show season, including Marion Cotillard, Mad Men's Christina Hendricks, and 30 Rock's Jane Krakowski.

The truth is, one-shoulder gowns can be quite flattering for a lot of body types, and it shows some skin while still staying conservative. Luckily Dessy has caught on to this, and they have incorporated some beautiful one-shoulder dresses in their new Spring 2010 collection. I'm even tempted to try one of them!
