NEW YORK -- The halter-cut bikini was spotted on more than one designer runway during the resort shows last month. It's a new alternative to the much-touted push-up bra.
"The halter is a very modern look," says designer Nicole Miller, who used the silhouette in swimwear for the first time this season. "There are a lot of underwire and push-up looks out there, but the halter is something new and fresh. The back is bare, creating a sexy, interesting look.
"It can double as a top and be worn as sportswear, too," she adds. Another very modern halter benefit: greater protection from the sun.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
