When in doubt, cut it out.

That seems to be the newest approach to dress silhouettes these days, at least, if Kim Kardashian and Nicole Richie are any indication. Sure, the whole black-and-white trend has raged on for quite a few months, but only now are we starting to see a fresh twist, er, slice. We speak of cutouts—lots and lots of them—particularly on a bodice, and especially on sleek Hollywood bods.

Exhibit A: the daring Thierry Mugler that Kardashian wore recently in New York, paring a down-to-there bustline with sexy Celine ankle straps and a fierce, dark pedicure.

Exhibit B: This fresh red carpet photo of Nicole Richie at the 2012 Style Awards in New York. Mrs. Joel Madden's cutouts come courtesy of an Anthony Vaccarello dress, which she wore with Costume National shoes and an Edie Parker clutch.

So who wore her cutout dress best? Sound off in our poll!
