When it comes to putting together a list of the most revealing celebrity outfits, it’s hard to know where to start. There’s a long history of celebrities wearing racy and risqué outfits. These days you’d be hard pressed to find a celebrity that hasn’t flashed some flesh for a headline. Even when the occasion calls for formal or black tie dressing, some celebrities can’t help but go for the shock factor. Take a look at our list of some of the most revealing celebrity outfits from the red carpet.
1 Jaimie Alexander
One of the most revealing celebrity outfits recently has be to this body hugging black dress worn by ‘Thor’ actress Jaimie Alexander. She set tongues wagging when she stepped onto the red carpet at the L.A. premiere of ‘Thor 2’in a sheer paneled dress. The sheer panels ran all the way down the front and back of the dress, making wearing underwear impossible, as we can clearly see from the photo.
2 Jennifer Lawrence
Jennifer Lawrence has owned the red carpet in recent years. She wore this sheer Christian Dior Couture gown to the premier of ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’. The voluminous gown was entirely sheer and you could clearly see the black bodysuit worn underneath. A boxy black clutch and bright pink lipstick completed this edgier take on red carpet style.
3 Jennifer Lopez
Jennifer Lopez is no stranger to a revealing red carpet outfit, but the green Versace dress that she wore to the Grammys in 2000 is probably her most famous. The barely there creation was plunging and see through, and would have required plenty of Hollywood tape to keep in place. The dress was also somewhat of a trendsetter, and set the scene for a decade of celebrities trying to outdo each other in the skimpy outfit stakes.
4 Kristen Stewart
Kristen Stewart vamped it up in boudoir-inspired corset dress at the premiere of ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2’. The dress, by Zuhair Murad, featured a number of sheer lace panels. The nude dress also meant that skin coloured underwear was a must for the starlet.
Rihanna wore this sheer dress to the Grammys in 2011. The off-the-shoulder dress featured alternating ruffled and sheer panels, with a slight mermaid hem. While it’s one of her more demure looks, the sheer panels still leave little to the imagination.
6 Gwyneth Paltrow
Gwyneth Paltrow wore this futuristic looking dress to the premiere of ‘Iron Man 3’. The dress featured curved paneling and sheer details to the sleeves and sides. While it’s not entirely obvious from the front, the sheer panels on the side of the dress made for quite a revealing outfit.
7 Anja Rubik
Model Anja Rubik wore this revealing white dress to the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala in 2012. The dress featured a diagonal slashed cut out panel to the bodice and a split all the way up to the hip. Talk about leg-baring!
8 Toni Braxton
It seems like the Grammys are notorious for revealing red carpet outfits. Toni Braxton wore this dress, if you could even call it that, to the awards in 2001. The dress consisted of a few strips of strategically placed fabric and left very, very little to the imagination.
9 Rose McGowan
This outfit from Rose McGowan has to take the cake for the most revealing red carpet outfit. The outfit, which she wore to the 1998 Video Music Awards, basically consisted of a panel of see-through mesh and a few pieces of string. It makes you wonder why she even bothered to wear anything at all.
From plunging necklines to thigh high splits to sheer paneling, there’s no shortage of ways to show some skin on the red carpet. These are just a few celebrities who have dared to bare some skin. Can you think of any other revealing celebrity red carpet moments?
