Okay, I know that Prom 2010 is still four months away, and yes, I realize that for most of us it's a bit early to start violently ransacking the 'Formal Wear' sections of our favorite stores. However, I've found some styles to keep in mind while pondering your beautifully constructed floor-length piece of perfection. First of all, the knee-length splits simply aren't going to cut it. However, if you happened to raise the cut just a few inches higher, you'll be wearing one of the hottest looks of the Season. Versace (shown above), Zac Posen, and Lanvin all produced knock-out gowns for their Spring/Summer '10 Lines, most of which had stunning thigh-length splits on the sides and/or middle of the dresses. Geometric shapes and cutouts layering gowns created beautiful eye movement as well, and were definitely received well by onlookers. Apply the same principles to your dress as were used by these fashion power houses, and you'll undoubtedly emerge runway ready.
