Whether you're going to prom, competing in a  pageant, or attending any other special event that requires you to dress to the nines, chances are you want to look - and feel - your very best in a dress that is stylish and picture-perfect. Most dresses focus on making you look amazing from the front because, most likely, that's the side people will see the most of. Other dresses, like the ones we're featuring in this article, go one step further than that and create dramatic and dazzling backs so that you can wow the crowd from any angle!

Since these dresses dial up the drama in the back, most of them have a simpler style in the front, making them the perfect choice for anyone that wants a sleeker style that isn't too over the top, but still want to feel like a glam goddess! Check out our favorite dresses with beautiful backs from the latest formal collections, all of which can be found on the All The Rage website!

Blush pink is the perfect color for any spring event, which is what makes this sweet, pink, fitted dress one of our favorites! While the front features a sleek and simple skirt, the lace up back includes a beautiful train made of a lovely lace for an extra special touch!

"Business in the front, party in the back" definitely applies to this gorgeous, white prom and pageant dress that looks so sleek and minimalist in the front, but features some gorgeous, gold embroidery around the sides and down the back that adds just enough detail to make this dress unforgettable!
