The one-shoulder dress is a dominating theme among fashion-forward style icons. Gwyneth Paltrow, Charlize Theron, Claudia Schiffer and Heidi Klum have all been spotted sporting this sexy and classy look on the red carpet recently.

This one-shouldered style continues to make a strong showing at nearly every red carpet or fashion show. Look for shoulder-baring dresses on the Emmy red carpet next.

Implications - Unconventional zones are becoming erotic. Breast cleavage and tight dresses may not be considered sexy for everyone. This impacts the fashion and cosmetic industries, as well as the marketing and advertising industries, who can set themselves ahead by showing the beauty of different parts of the body, which can appeal to female consumers who are tired of conforming to unfair beauty standards.
