The naked-dress trend is back and bolder than ever in 2023. It comes in two main styles: a skin-color body-con dress or a barely-there dress with transparent or sheer material strategically placed. This trend has been evolving for years, but its impact remains strong.
The naked dress has a long history. Cher fans remember her dedication to Bob Mackie's risqué creations. Before that, Marilyn Monroe wore an infamous sheer dress in 1962 to sing happy birthday to President Kennedy. Recently, Kim Kardashian wore this dress to the Met Gala.
Jane Birkin in 1969 and Kate Moss in 1993 both wore sheer dresses with black knickers, making them my personal favorites. It's a subtle way to embrace the nude-dress trend. However, in recent years, the trend has become more glamorous. Rihanna's 2014 CFDA look and Beyoncé's 2015 Met Gala dress by Givenchy garnered attention for their daringly minimal appearance. Similarly, Kim Kardashian's 2019 wet-look Mugler creation satisfied the naked-dress trend with its body-con style and color.
In recent months, naked dresses have resurfaced on the red carpet. Megan Fox wore a wet-look Mugler frock to the VMAs. Barely-there dresses were also seen at the Met Gala, including Olivia Wilde's impressive dress. Kendall Jenner's diamanté Givenchy gown and Zoe Kravitz's mesh Saint Laurent dress led the trend.
If this is something you're drawn to, perhaps it's worth taking inspiration from the current looks. Keep scrolling to see the current naked-dress looks.
