Celebrities often push the boundaries of fashion on the red carpet.
But a bigger trend that began taking off in 2016 was the “naked” dress — gowns and outfits designed to show maximum skin while still keeping covered.
Keep reading for a look at 31 of the most daring outfits celebrities have rocked.
At the MTV Video Music Awards in August 2017, Demi Lovato wore a completely sheer bodysuit tucked into harem-style pants.
Jennifer Lawrence wore a silver Atelier Versace dress covered in a cobweb-like design at the premiere of 'mother!' in London on September 6, 2017.
Earlier that same week, Lawrence wore another sheer gown with an almost see-through top to the movie premiere at the Venice Film Festival.
Kendall has worn other daring dresses, too. She had to move with caution when she wore this double slitted dress to the 2015 Much Music Video Awards.
In 2014, Braxton spoke with People Magazine about the daring gown. 'I was younger then,' Braxton said. 'Things were up -- the boobies were perkier, the cellulite was less. You got to do it when you're young.'
She also explained that the designer, Richard Tyler, had attached underwear to the side panel of the dress, which helped keep the fabric down.
Fast forward to the 2016 American Music Awards, and Chrissy Teigen made waves with her dress held together with a safety pin.
This is probably the biggest slit to ever appear in a red carpet gown. After suffering an unfortunate wardrobe malfunction, she posted a photo on Instagram and included an apology to 'anyone harmed mentally or physically by (her) hooha.'
Teigen also tagged her laser hair removal salon in the Instagram post.
That wasn't the first time Teigen stepped onto a red carpet in a daring dress. Here's her look from the 2015 VMAs.
Besides high slits, mesh cutouts are another trend. Jaimie Alexander stunned in this dress at the 2013 premiere of Marvel's 'Thor: The Dark World.'
The dress, designed by Donna Karan Atelier, took the concept of see-through side paneling to a whole new level. Oddly enough, Ora wasn't the only person to wow with a black gown at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party that year.
Her take was slightly more modest. From the front view, it was hard to tell that her gown had cutaway paneling. But from the side, Paltrow's dress wowed onlookers.
Completed with a pink fur shawl, this Rihanna outfit was a memorable instalment in her fashion evolution. Her hair stylist also gave fans a fun look at Rihanna celebrating that evening, with a video of the singer dancing and overall celebrating how awesome she looked.
Hailey Baldwin wore a silver jumpsuit in a super thin material with a low V-neck and wide velvet belt to the VMAs in 2017.
On the same night, Hailey Baldwin wore a second see-through jumpsuit -- this time, in a black lace material with visible black underwear and a pair of knee-high velvet boots.
During one of her many wardrobe changes that night, Cyrus wore this dress made of clear vinyl and carefully placed circles.
In 2017, Heidi Klum chose a semi-sheer golden dress for her VMAs outfit. The fabric is so see-through that in places it looks like it features cut-out details.
Beyoncé had people going crazy when she arrived to the Met Gala at the last minute wearing a sheer gown with delicately placed gems. And she wasn't the only one who decided that year's Met Gala would be the place to rock a 'naked' dress.
That same evening, Kim Kardashian West wore a glittering silver gown that left little to the imagination.
Though you can see the padding that matches her skin tone beneath some of the sheer fabric, Kardashian was positively glowing in this 'naked' dress designed by Roberto Cavalli.
Bebe Rexha wore a floor-length sheer gown with an illusion neckline and a silver, chain-like pattern to the 2017 MTV VMAs.
For her VMAs outfit, Olivia Munn wore a long-sleeved metallic shift dress with a sheer cut-out panel overlaid with fishnet and sequin details.
Last but not least, we'll have to go through some of the Kardashian clan's iconic 'naked' looks. This clinging sheer number was worn by Kim at the 2016 MTV movie awards.
And Kim also stunned in this sheer black dress at the Harper's Bazaar's celebration of 'ICONS By Carine Roitfeld.'
