While we’re enduring an unseasonably humid summer heat wave here in L.A., it looks like usually-grey London had some great weather, because at the Serpentine Gallery’s summer party, there were plenty of crocheted dresses (see: Suki Waterhouse), light slip dresses and the summer’s breakout red carpet trend, the two-piece crop top dress. Bond girl Gemma Arterton, who was wearing an ensemble by her date Prabal Gurung, stole the show in a tomato-red outfit.

The British actress kept her outfit simple, letting her toned abs and matching shoes act as the only accessories, but everything about the Prabal Gurung outfit screamed scene-stealer. From the fiery hue to the perfect cut, it flaunted all of Arterton’s assets and kept her looking perfectly demure.

And lest you think you need to drop your whole shopping budget on designer duds, we’ve forgone the usual accessory and shoe outfit grid for some great crop top dress options, because like Arterton, we think it’s best to keep it simple and clean when you’ve got on such a statement-making dress. Just put in a few extra minutes at the gym if you plan on flashing some skin and pair any of our picks with a sleek, simple shoe (this Stuart Weitzman option goes with everything — and we mean everything) and you’ll be guaranteed to steal the spotlight.
