Gather round, and let's discuss the Great Midriffining of 2014.
It started out slow. Lupita Nyong'o dared to bare her belly at the 7th Annual Essence Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon in February.
Then Beyonce wore this ensemble to a NYFW party and was all ~flawless~ in it.
Naya Rivera put her midriff on blast at Michael Kors' NYFW show.
Mindy Kaling and Vanessa Hudgens both Midriffed in this Topshop ensemble. Who wore it better?*
J/K that's a terrible question meant to pit women against each other and feel bad about their bodies. Let's not do that, mmkay?
And then in May, things began to heat up. Celebs attended the Met Costume Institute Gala, and Emma Stone and Anne Hathaway basically wore the same exact thing.
Not that anyone's complaining.
Rihanna and her BFF Cara Delavingne competed for midriff supremacy.
No clear winner here.
