Best Naked Dresses in Runway History - Nude Dresses Runway Mugler

Best Naked Dresses in Runway History - Nude Dresses Runway Mugler

Sometimes a birthday suit is the most fashionable look of all.

Barely covered chests and carefully placed bunches of fabric around the waist, naked dresses have long been blending provocation with elegance. Celebrities love to wear them on the red carpet, and you may even spot one or two at a particularly permissible gala.

In the '90s, the naked dress signaled the out-there aesthetic of a troublemaking designer. These days, when nudity is slightly more acceptable, a sheer gown can show appreciation for the graceful, female form. This fashion month, L'OFFICIEL looks back at all the best naked dresses to walk the runway.

Naomi Campbell, supermodel that she is, has worn more than one. There was her strut in 2005 wearing a star-coated dress for Heatherette. Then, again, she wore a sheer black gown for Valentino in 2019. Fashion designer Thierry Mugler was never afraid of putting models in all states of undress on the runway. His namesake brand is still carrying on the tradition, as can be seen from their body-hugging dresses worn by Dominique Jackson and Megan Fox.

No matter the year or designer, a true naked dress shows that it's just as much about what you don't wear, as what you do.
