...For a more affordable take on this trend, try French Connection's New Construction Dress, on sale for $99.99 at I actually prefer the long sleeves on this dress, looks very Norma Kamali to me.Click any image for details or to purchase.
I'm simply not sure how flattering this look could really be. Would you be so kind as to give us some examples of celebs who've rocked this kind of dress?

Here are some celebrities rocking Black Halo, the brand:

As for that particular dress style, with the cut-out shoulders, I will be on the lookout for photos! I can see how it might be a tough look to pull off, much like a one-shoulder dress, but I think it's interesting and flattering throughout the torso, neckline, etc. Something different :-)

I don't find that Halo dress flattering at all. I like the French Connection one loads better. Although I am unsure of whether I would commit to buying and wearing a piece like this. Its almost as if they started out with a plain ole dress that they found boring so, they just started chopping away.
