Olympic gold medalist and star of WE’s ‘Glam And Gold’, Sanya Richards-Ross attended Kevin Liles’ Superbowl party last week wearing a Haute Hippie maxi dress, complete with clever cutouts and a super sexy side slit. To accessorize, she rocked a pair of Celine ankle strap heels and minimal jewelry. This look, styled by dynamic duo Wayman Bannerman and Micah McDonald, gets 10s across the board! I love its sexy-simplicity.

For beauty, the fashion lover went with a smoky eye and pretty pink pout by makeup artist Shon Michaux.  I was at Kevin’s party that night and Sanya looked simply gorgeous.

Heading out for the night and looking for a fab dress to wear? A side slit black maxi dress is the perfect way to go! Using Sanya as inspiration, I came up with these three flirty ‘n edgy combos. Click the links to purchase. What’s your fave?

Look #1: Indah dress + Nicholas Kirkwood heels

Step into a $137 Indah maxi dress and treat yourself to these sassy Nicholas Kirkwood beauties. Accessorize your hot pink mani with Maison Martin Margiela rings. Play up your eyes with a swipe of eyeliner and falsies. Before stepping out, spritz on some Dolce Gabbana and pump up your lips with this pinky-pink by NARS.

Look #2: Forever 21 dress + Topshop heels

It’s a win-win in this $18 Forever 21 dress and $90 Topshop heels. For beauty, try a matte lip by NYX (just $6!), vibrant orange tips by Dior, Tom Ford perfume and Sephora eyeliner. Finish it all off with some Asos rings, just $22!

Look #3: Black Halo dress + Saint Laurent heels

Keep it casual-chic in a Black Halo dress and Saint Laurent heels. Put some icing on the cake with Lanvin perfume, Dior eye shadow and Marc Jacobs eye liner. Le Metier de Beaute nail polish and Tarte lipstick add the perfect pop of color to the ensemble.

What do you think, ladies?
