I've heard the rumors and seen evidence on the spring runways, but I remained in denial.
However, last night's Grammy Awards pretty much made it official:
This upcoming season, skin is in.
Yes, in an effort to counter spring's longer skirt lengths, designers are expecting us to show off our bellies.
Oh, this is not good. In fact, this is bad. This is very, very bad.
Unless you're Rihanna, I mean.
She-with-the-perfect-body took the look a little too far last night, giving us a gander not only at her navel in this see-through evening gown, but pretty much everything else.
Do the words 'leave something to the imagination' mean anything to you, Rhi-Rhi?

Katy Perry seemed to be auditioning for a spot on the Victoria's Secret runway with this blingy bra, super-long skirt, and angel wings. I thought she looked great -- from the neck up.
And you know Kim Kardashian is all about the belly button trend. In fact, this dress was actually modest for Miss K.
Ciara was another Grammy attendee who showed off her stomach in a glam cut-out gown. Glee's Jenna Ushkowitz tried to copy Rihanna's peekaboo look, but looked instead like she wrapped herself up in a black ribbon. And Paramore's Hayley Williams bared her abs in a see-through LBD.
Oddly, I noticed that no celebrity moms rocked this trend last night.
Hmm. Wonder why?
Will you show off your stomach this spring?
