The 26 Best Naked Dresses Of 2019

Sheer ambition.

Back in 2019, the rise and rise of the ‘naked dress’ showed no sign of slowing down. While precious few red carpet moments will ever come close to Rihanna’s jaw-dropping, fully sheer gown at the 2014 CFDA Awards, celebrities seem to be increasingly comfortable pushing out the envelope when it comes to what constitutes ‘scantily clad’.

Of course, the spectrum of the ‘naked dress’ is wide and ever-changing, with old hands like Bella Hadid and Kim Kardashian West tackling the trend head-on in barely-there couture, while novices like Blake Lively and Karlie Kloss played it safe in more demure versions.

Regardless, a ‘naked dress’—typically classified as a gown that gives the illusion of being sheer or is, in fact, completely see-through via transparent fabric or cut-outs—is the easiest way to make a memorable entrance.

In spirit of having it and flaunting it, we’ve rounded up the best naked dress moments of 2019. Scroll down to see them.
