We've seen some gowns slashed to NSFW-levels, others that reveal just a teeny-tiny glimpse of skin. But the latest trend that has graced the 2016 Emmys red carpet is pretty cool in its anatomical exposure: ribcage-revealing cut-outs either on one side or both. Who knew ribcages could be so sexy? Heidi Klum showed off one-half of her hard-earned supermodel abs in a custom diamond pave Michael Kors Collection gown. Meanwhile, expectant mom Kerry Washington won maternity style of the night in a stunning custom Brandon Maxwell creation that revealed skinny slices of skin on both sides. And Tracee Ellis Ross exposed her ribcage in a custom one-shoulder Ralph Lauren Collection design with a sexy cut-out slashed across one side.
