Take the Plunge: How to Wear the Latest Celebrity Trend

Showing skin is nothing new in the realm of celebrity style—the world’s most famous faces have long been baring as much as they desire, both on and off the red carpet. But we’re particularly keen on a skin-baring trend that was popular this past summer: ultra-deep cleavage.

We probably have Kim Kardashian West to thank for this, at least partially: She’s been at the forefront of the plunging-neckline movement for quite some time. And when fellow style mavens like Rihanna, Bella Hadid, and Karlie Kloss also get on board—you know it’s for real.

Scroll down for eight ladies who are rocking the trend right now, as well our picks so you can pull off the look too.

A deep-plunge neckline is made even more dramatic with a strong shoulder silhouette.

For the most daring, wear a plunging look to the navel, and pair it with a thigh-grazing slit.

The sternum-baring cut gives a feminine frock so much edge.
