See-Through Dresses on the Red Carpet
SIGN UP TO RECEIVE THE LATEST NEWS FROM FASHION&STYLE
There is a new fashion trend on the red carpet that has A-list stars leaving little to the imagination.
Over the past month, many celebrities have been opting for full length dresses that are also almost fully see-through. Beyoncé, Charlize Theron and Kristen Stewart are some of the latest stars that have dared to bare in these risqué gowns.
At the 2012 Met Gala, Beyoncé donned a sheer sequin Givenchy Haute Couture gown, complete with a long purple feathered tail. While her look was extremely bold and a definite fashion risk, the dress gave the singer and new mom to four-month old Blue Ivy an opportunity to show the world that her body is in top shape, and that she is just as fit as she was before her pregnancy.
The dress, though, elicited some mixed reviews. While some fashion critics thought the look was appropriate given that the Met Gala is a night for high fashion and a flare for the dramatic, others felt Beyoncé should have covered up a bit more.
Also taking a page out of Beyoncé's book was actresses Charlize Theron and Kristen Stewart, both of whom wore sheer black dresses to the UK world premiere of their new film 'Snow White and the Huntsman' at London's Empire Leicester Square.
Charlize's ensemble was a Christian Dior Haute Couture, and enabled the actress to show off her long and lean legs. The sleeveless tulle gown complete with long draping sheer material showed off Theron's black hotpants, which was clearly visible underneath her barely there dress.
Kristen Stewart, who also chose the event to show a little skin, stunned in a skeletal lace Marchesa gown. Her dress, which had long sheer sleeves and a train, gave the actress a bit of an edge while still allowing her to be feminine. Stewart's stylist, Tara Swennen called the actress' look "fearless" on her twitter page.
With summer rolling around, the sheer dress trend, which is both sexy and sometimes shocking, looks like it might be here to stay.
