Pelvic Cutouts Are the Risqué Trend Bella Hadid and Kim K Are Already Endorsing

By now, you've probably noticed that the cutout trend has reached a fever pitch. The trend started taking hold with the F/W 20 collections and definitely didn't lose steam at the S/S 21 and F/W 21 shows. In the celebrity world, Zendaya wore an ab-baring cutout dress to the Oscars, and Emily Ratajkowski memorably wore a dress with a built-in G-string while pregnant. Now, Bella Hadid and Kim Kardashian are offering up the latest ideas on how to try out the look.

Both women were photographed in Paris wearing different versions of the exposed-hip cutout trend this week. Hadid wore I.Am.Gia's Carrie Pants ($80) with the fabric sliced and diced at the pelvic bone, and Kardashian's Barragán Amarre Dress ($439) showed off slivers of her hips. Scroll down to see how they wore the cutout trend in Paris and to shop the look.

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of Associate Director of Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
