The Naked-Dress Trend Is All Over the VMAs, From Selena Gomez to Megan Thee Stallion
The 2023 MTV Video Music Awards red carpet just confirmed what we’ve been suspecting for months: naked dresses are far and away this year’s biggest style trend. The 2023 MTV VMAs kicked off at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ, on Tuesday evening, with hundreds of the industry’s most revered stars stepping out in sheer looks.
Naked dresses have dominated fashion in a big way this year, both on the runway and the red carpet. While the see-through silhouettes aren’t especially new – particularly at the VMAs (see: Miley Cyrus’s metallic look from 2015 or Megan Fox’s iconic dress from the 2021 ceremony) – they’ve quickly become more mainstream among Hollywood’s biggest stars.
Now they’re trending on the 2023 VMAs red carpet like never before. From Selena Gomez’s red-hot floral gown and Tinashe’s crystal-encrusted sheer slip to Nicki Minaj’s ethereal lace dress and Megan Thee Stallion’s paneled corset number, these head-turning ensembles prove the naked-dress trend is here to stay in all of its bold, barely there glory.
