If you thought you noticed a little more skin on the red carpet last night, you were right. It wasn't about plunging necklines or miniskirts, but these A-listers still managed to turn up the sultry factor with a few strategic cut-outs. Jennifer Lawrence and Jaime King each proved that a black gown is far from boring with just the right amount of skin. Jaime showed off one of Jason Wu's sexier Pre-Fall '13 silhouettes, with a revealing, strappy back; while Jennifer's Prabal Gurung confection was a testament to edgier, fashion-forward cut-outs that gave her look a more modern feel. For a totally different take on the trend, just look to Nina Dobrev's fit-and-flare Monique Lhuillier to see how a cutout at the neckline gives this sweet dress a sexier side. There's nothing too overt, but a hint of skin in each of these styles added glamour and sex appeal in all the right ways. Last year may have been all about the slits (lest we forget that Angelina's right leg scored its own Twitter handle) — but this award season might just be all about cutouts. Click on to see the celebs who bared a little more skin at the Critics' Choice Awards.
