In 2014 Rihanna was lambasted in the press – and reportedly by TLC – for arriving at the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Awards in a dress that left almost nothing to the imagination. The see-through mesh gown revealed her boobs and her bum. Thankfully the Caribbean queen preserved at least some modesty by wearing a pair of panties.

Maybe we should blame Liz Hurley for the generation of celebrities who feel they have to flash a lot of flesh to make an impact on the red carpet. In 1994, she arrived on the arm of her then-boyfriend Hugh Grant while wearing a black Gianni Versace dress with cutouts and a plunging neckline. Oversized safety pins gave the impression that Hurley’s buxom curves were barely being contained.

She appears to be naked in an episode of her sitcom One Big Happy – but Kelly Brook once arrived at an event in her native England wearing little more than a tiny shred of fabric. In 2000, she arrived at the Snatch premiere in a dress that was slashed up to her hip, revealing her matching sequined panties.

When Toni Braxton arrived at the 2001 Grammy Awards, the R&B singer looked like she left something at home – the rest of her dress! The white gown was essentially two pieces of material held together by a band that made sure her bum and lady bits were covered.

A sequined shell-shaped pasty is all that Lil’ Kim had to cover her left boob in 1999, when she arrived at the MTV Video Music Awards. It was the most revealing part of her jump suit.

Even the Academy Awards aren’t sacred when it comes to scandalous dresses. Rita Ora arrived at the Vanity Fair party in February 2015 wearing a long black dress with a sheer side panel that proved she wasn’t wearing a bra or any panties — and had a rather striking tattoo, too.

Back in 2002 during her “Dirrty” phase, Christina Aguilera arrived on the red carpet wearing a mini denim skirt, flashing her abs and barely covering her boobs with a crisscross bandeau.

The Versace label was responsible for another scandalous red carpet look at the 2000 Grammy Awards. J. Lo proved how low she could go by wearing a green dress with a neckline so plunging it fell way below her navel and a slit so high it’s a miracle it covered her crotch.

Cher is the queen of scandalous red carpet outfits. And she has appeared at the Academy Awards on more than one occasion wearing barely-there gowns. In 1986 she arrived at the black tie event exposing her torso and two years later, when she picked up an Oscar, she did so in a sheer black beaded gown.

When Rose McGowan arrived at the 1998 MTV Video Music Awards it's not clear if she was wearing a dress or a few pieces of string stitched together. Either way Rihanna looked virtually overdressed years later at the CFDA event in contrast.

When it comes to fashion, Ice T’s wife Coco Austin seems to subscribe to the less is more theory. At the 2005 MTV Video Music Awards the curvaceous blonde arrived in a black mesh, skin-tight dress wearing nothing but a pair of thongs underneath.

Who needs underwear when they arrive on the red carpet? Not Jaimie Alexander. In 2013 the actress went to the Thor: The Dark World premiere wearing a black dress with neck-to-toe sheer panels proving that she was going braless and commando.

Miley Cyrus looked like she was about to indulge in a bit of BDSM when she walked the red carpet at the amfAR Inspiration Gala in October 2014. A bra is clearly not required when you have a few strips to cover your nipples.
