    Default curve-hugging , deep-sixes

    please kindly help me understand the red highlights . thanks a lot !

    Orange Crush: Halle Berry may have deglammed for her role as a mental patient in "Gothika," but she was back in fine movie star form for the film's premiere. The flawless Oscar-winner, who has a seemingly unerring eye when it comes to choosing dresses of the most flattering cut and color, looks delicious in a curve-hugging orange Gucci dress and silver T-strap sandals. Halle's gorgeous gold and pearl lariat necklace from Australian jeweler Autore deep-sixes into her corset-style bodice, drawing the eye (as if it needs directions) into her ample cleavage.

    a curve-hugging orange Gucci dress
    ==> The dress hugs the curves of her figure (It's a tight fitting dress)

    the necklace deep-sixes into her corset-style bodice
    ==> The necklace plunges downward into her dress. (to deep-six means to throw something overboard into the sea.)

    :D
