On day one of Paris Fashion Week, Olivier Theyskens sent out 27 of 33 looks that were short in the front and long in the back at Nina Ricci. It got us thinking … what else has something short in the front and long in the back? Mullets! By the week's end, eight different designers took on the style, from Yves Saint Laurent to Emanuel Ungaro. Okay, so technically these are called high-low hemline dresses. To check out more fun with hemlines, click ahead for the slideshow.
Olivier Theyskens kicked off Paris Fashion Week day one with almost an entire collection of these hemlines at Nina Ricci.
Sonia Rykiel showed a zebra-patterned version at her 40th-anniversary show.
Emanuel Ungaro's used bright prints and tie-dye colors for a flowy high-low hemline.
Kenzo's hemline hit just above the knee in the front, but the back still covered up all the way to the ankle.
Balmain's sequined and sexy high-low hemline dresses.
Yves Saint Laurent
