Unlike all trends that come and go, the backless dress has become a classic associated with the attractiveness of women from the Hollywood red carpet to the parties.
A backless dress and the journey to honor the sexy beauty of Hollywood “pink balls”
Contributing to many fashion events, backless dresses are requisitioned by many designers in sexy mixes. If Gigi Hadid ever caused a storm with the moment of tossing her hair to show off her sexy bareback at Jacquemus’s Fall – Winter 2020 catwalk. Then at the premiere of the movie “Babylon” in London, Margot Robbie captivated the audience when she appeared with a “closed front and back” design in soulful red.
Valentino’s brilliant design choice to promote his latest film is a clever move by the four Golden Globe winners because “Babylon” also taps into the Hollywood theme of the 1920s – around the same time the dress was born. backless. The art of “teasing” the naked eye developed with flappers’ culture as fashion gradually opened up. Many dancers at the time decorated their backs by wearing jewelry backward, with their own name “backdrop necklace” creating the concept of new age glamour.
Mixing glamor and sensuality, the backless dress’s reputation quickly spread beyond the flapper’s community and invaded the silver screen of the 30s and 40s with long evening versions. By the 1950s, skirts showing off their backs officially had their status on the red carpet when many “sex symbols” were represented such as Vikki Dougan, Elizabeth Taylor, etc.
Since then, the dress has been paired with many famous pink balls from Europe to Asia. The followers of backless dresses range from actors and singers active in the pop era to British royalty. Be it bold or restrained, in any color, the dress design fulfills the task of highlighting the bare backs and affirming the seductive yet strong feminist manifesto.
Reckless is always the essence of the fashion village, it is not surprising that the backless dress is still persistent in the fashion flow. The Palais Galliera museum in Paris once held the exhibition “Backside/Fashion from Behind” in 2019 to honor the position of the bare-back dress in French culture alongside many high-end collections. The masterpieces of open-back dresses from satin, silk, and chiffon are on display, vouching for the affirmation that “silk is beautiful for people.”
