No matter the occasion, celebrities aim to turn heads on the red carpet. Sure, flashy embellishments or exaggerated details can take a look to the next level, but sometimes, just a simple silhouette can make the biggest impact.
Halter necklines are one of the hottest go-to styles in Hollywood. Not only do they elongate a star's torso and accentuate the shoulders, but halters can work on a variety of garments from sleek jumpsuits to glitzy gowns.
And the best part? Whether the celeb is a small-busted babe or well-endowed, halter necks are universally flattering on nearly every body type.
