Some of our favourite style moments from 2022 were a result of the daring cutout trend, and Anitta's latest red-carpet look is proof that the look is here to stay. On Nov. 20, the "Envolver" singer attended the American Music Awards in a custom Mugler dress fitted with one unique detail: shimmering butt cutouts. Stylist Ron Hartleben paired her look with Tiffany & Co. jewellery, including six silver cuff bracelets and a dazzling set of rings. Anitta also tied her hair back in a divisive "wet flip bun," drawing attention to her sparkling chandelier earrings.
Ahead of taking the stage at the award show, the Grammy-nominated singer shared a glimpse of her dress from all angles, catching the lights of the camera flashes on every bead and bit of sequins. The floor-length gown featured a sheer base with thousands of miniature white beads sewn in place to create the illusion of a long-sleeved crop top with a curved hem. At the midriff, the dress dipped, forming an inverted M shape that wrapped around and came to a point at the base of her neck.
Just below the tattoo-baring mesh cutout, the dress transformed into a flowing black skirt composed of intricate beading and sequin detailing. Hand on hip, the star turned for the cameras, revealing two Rorschach-esque butt cutouts that began at her hip and swirled outward, ending just above her thigh. While celebrities like Halle Bailey have made the cutout trend a go-to in our personal wardrobes, Anitta's ensemble might be our favourite iteration of the trend yet.
