The red carpet may seem like a sea of black and white tuxedos and conservative yet stylish gowns. But some of the most important red carpet events of the year can also be an occasion for celebrities to push the envelope and show off some skin. Take Jennifer Lopez who used the Met Gala red carpet as yet another opportunity for her to show off her famous booty in a hot naked dress. Revealing gowns have given stars the ability to feel empowered while showing off their bodies.
It takes a lot of confidence to show up to a red carpet affair in such revealing attire, but when you've got the name and the look to go along with it, you can get away with it just fine. Sure, these lovely ladies may not always land on the best dressed list. Some may even wind up showing more than they'd like through a wardrobe malfunction, but these bold dresses get everyone talking one way or another. From Jennifer Lawrence to Beyonce, naked dresses have stood out among the crowd throughout awards season and have turned plenty of heads.
Whether it be the VMAs, the SAG Awards, or the Met Gala, no red carpet has been safe from the sultry allure of the sheer dress, the cutout gown, or in one particularly daring move, just a plain ol' fishnet dress with some pasties.
