Selena Gomez's Double-Slit Dress Is... Awkward (PHOTOS, POLL)

We're all for mobility on the red carpet -- too-tight bandage dresses that actresses can't walk in are a serious fashion don't. The same goes for dresses that are so loose, you can't walk in them without fear of exposure, a look Selena Gomez tried out at the Teen Choice Awards on Sunday.

The fashion-forward actress wore a double-slit dress by Cushnie et Ochs that allowed both of her legs to roam free. Unfortunately, we're afraid this wide-open style is better in theory than in practice. It almost appears as if the dress were slashed open by accident, and the middle panel of fabric creates a sort of loincloth effect when covering the star's lower body.

Tell us: Are you feeling as awkward about this outfit as we are?
