Mena Suvari Tries A Risque Cutout Dress: Yay Or Nay? (PHOTO, POLL)

Even though Mena Suvari generally looks flawless on the red carpet, the actress has been known to venture into wardrobe malfunction territory (we're assuming she's learned to avoid sheer fabrics by now though). So when we saw her latest outfit, we began to worry that she may have been tempting the wardrobe malfunction gods yet again.

The recent divorcée attended the Foundry LA store launch party in a black cutout dress. And, just to be clear, we're not talking your typical side panel peek-a-boo, but four strategically-placed openings that revealed the top half of her bust and her stomach. Mena must have had to tread pretty carefully all night to keep that thing in place...

Between this dress and the black number she wore that appeared to stay in place by sheer magic, we've decided that the 33-year-old must have made a deal with the wardrobe malfunction devil. Plus, over-the-top, flirty cutouts seem to be the trend du jour these days. Gwyneth Paltrow gave the risky look a spin last week in her own barely-there LBD, so we're guessing we'll be seeing a lot more of these types of dresses in the near-future. (But hopefully none that look like this one.)

We're still on the fence regarding how we feel about these revealing cutout ensembles -- particularly Mena Suvari's version. Check out the photo below and tell us what you think of the trend.
