Deliberate holes and rips appeared all over the Spring 2010 runways as designers slashed and snipped tops, dresses, and swimsuits to create carefully calculated cutouts. Worthy cutout contenders included Alexandar Wang, Michael Kors, Max Azria, and Yigal Azrouel.

Alexander Wang, always about street style, made sure his cutouts suited his mesh-flesh urban frocks; Micheal Kors kept his calculated cutouts neat, clean, and simple; and Max Azria’s angled slashes on tops and dresses invoked images of an elegant black-tie function interrupted by a werewolf.
