We were a bit undecided on the dress Uma Thurman wore to Louis Vuitton yesterday. On the one hand, cutouts = so chic. On the other hand? The color was a bit drab, the shape a bit dumpy (and Uma is certainly not dumpy) and the shoes a poor pairing.
Then we saw the same dress styled as a coverup on the latest cover of Vogue Australia. And we totally changed our minds.
Alina Baikova, shot by Nicole Bentley, wears the dress over a red and white bathing suit for the magazine's November cover, hiking it up over her bronzed legs and adding a bright belt.
The look just screams summer (which, given Australia's reverse seasons, makes perfect sense) and looks drastically different with just a bit of sun and a lot of skin.
Take a look below -- which style do you prefer?
