We Haven't Been This Into a Bodycon Dress Since 2005

In the early 2000s, if there was a red carpet, there was a bandage bodycon dress. Everyone from Victoria Beckham to Paris Hilton wore tight, body-skimming dresses by the likes of Hervé Léger and Roland Mouret, but fast-forward a few years, and this silhouette went from Hollywood to reality TV and remained in the '00s. However, we think Lupita Nyong'o just made bodycon dresses cool again while promoting Black Panther. She wore a ruched knee-length dress by Dolce & Gabbana, which has a flattering sweetheart neckline and corseted bodice—it comes with a removable slip so can also double as a sheer dress. Judging by how phenomenal Lupita looks in this dress, this could mark the return of the impossible-to-walk-up-stairs-in midi dress. Keep scrolling to see and shop Lupita Nyong'o's latest look.
