Award seasons always deliver amazing trends and if there’s one we’ve seen at the past few red carpets it’s been “naked dresses”. These barely-there sheer dresses leave very little to the imagination and they’re super revealing. Between the MTV VMAs, Emmys, and the Met Gala, naked dresses are the hottest trend, and here are some of the many celebrities who’ve rocked it recently.

Zoë Kravitz

Zoë Kravitz’s Saint Laurent dress was one of the most divisive looks at the 2021 Met Gala as many thought it was just too revealing and that she was pretty much naked. She responded to the criticism on her Instagram writing, “Being uncomfortable with the human body is colonization/brainwashing,” Kravitz replied. “It’s just a body. We all got em,” before deleting all of her posts.

Megan Fox

Kendall Jenner

Out of the sea of many naked dresses at the 2021 Met Gala, Kendall Jenner wore it best out of everyone with this classy Givenchy crystal-embellished one.

Issa Rae

Issa Rae wore a mesh, metallic shift dress from Aliétte which was made of chain mail-like fabric and featured a black bodysuit, underneath, showing just the right amount of skin to the 2021 Emmys.


Ciara wore this black lace Tom Ford dress to the 2021 MTV VMAs, which is a different more lingerie-inspired take on the naked dress.
