Gone are the days when plunging necklines were the best way to show off a bit of flesh, with today’s trend focusing more on the midriff.

According to InStyle Magazine, an exposed midriff is the latest trend to hit the red carpet, but the key is restraint – just a little flash of flesh across the ribcage.

Rooney Mara recently walked the carpet at the Los Angeles Film Festival wearing a simple J.W. Anderson bustier and skirt in blue and Jimmy Choo heels, showing that sometimes less is more.

Lily Collins also chose to embrace the trend for her Comic Con appearance, wearing a basket weave-print ensemble from Paper London.

The Secret Life of America star Shailene Woodley recently looked glamorous in a Proenza Schouler Resort black turtleneck ensemble that was teamed with a statement tribal necklace, while Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence jumped on the midriff bandwagon with a patterned top and stylish white skirt.
