Kristen Stewart, Heidi Klum, Liv Tyler (Bauer Griffin, Getty)There are some trends only a few should try (hellooo harem pants and and crop-tops), but every now and then fashion throws out an idea that is so universally flattering everyone must give it a go. Right now, it's all about paneling.
The color-block trend came—and lingered—and went, but in its wake left us with this enduring design idea. It was Stella McCartney's famous cocktail dress that really kicked things off. Celebs couldn't get enough of its slimming curve-accentuating effect. Heck, Kate Winslet wore the dress in two different colorways at the Cannes Film Festival. Liv Tyler, Kris Jenner, and Brooklyn Decker all reveled in the brilliant piece, as well.
Today, it was Heidi Klum's Roland Mouret dress that re-established the power of the trend. Take a look at stunning examples of paneling and its best red carpet moments to date.
