Sydney Sweeney in Schiaparelli Couture at the REALITY New York Premiere

Posted on May 17, 2023

In the interests of providing you a break from the nonstop serving of gowns that is our Cannes Film Festival coverage, we take this moment to return to that old red carpet classic: serving body, alternately known as the sex kitten look. It’s got a long and proud history that encompasses dozens of legends, including Jane Fonda, whose patent leather boots she will be attempting to fill in the Barbarella remake. Miss Sydney? Please step into the judging circle so we can see if you’ve lived up to your sexy forerunners’ standards.


Yes. Well done, girl. Your sexy silver screen grandmothers are all nodding from heaven in approval. We hate these kinds of peek-a-boo strip dresses, but like we said, body-serving like this is a classic Hollywood style and she’s the current standard-bearer for it. It’s also a smart, savvy way for an up-and-coming starlet to remind you of her range as she promotes a distinctly un-glamorous an un-sexy role.



This looks really good.
