With how frequently sheer skirts and dresses have been popping up on our favorite celebrities, it’s hard to imagine a time when the see-through look was the ultimate fashion faux pas. But then again, there is that iconically infamous dress Rose McGowan wore to the 1998 MTV Awards (which we now know the actress did out of protest way before the #MeToo era). Regardless, the risqué ensemble has come quite a long way to solidify itself as one of Hollywood’s favorite fashion choices.
Shailene Woodley showed her support for the barely-there trend when she rocked a sheer Dior blouse and skirt set to a red carpet event for season two of Big Little Lies. The actress, who stars in the HBO series, looked phenomenal as she posed with a hand on her hip, showing off her figure under the flirty see-through set. Also, let’s just have a moment of appreciation for Woodley’s foray into a face-framing fringe bang. They really work for her both on and off-screen!
We could all learn a thing or two from Olivia Culpo about how to stay cool for the summer while looking hot as ever. The model shared some paparazzi shots of her stepping out in an easy, breezy see-through black mini dress a few weeks ago, and we can’t get over how good she looks. Paired with a delicate heel, an on-trend see-through purse, and a sleek hairstyle, Culpo nailed the perfect summer evening look.
Always ahead of the curve when it comes to trends, Dua Lipa wore a barely-there ensemble earlier this year to a London premiere. The racy set was compromised of a caged, see-through skirt and a strapless striped top. The “New Rules” singer’s legs and figure were on full display as she posed for the cameras looking flawless as ever.
