met gala 2015


From Beyonce to Rhianna, and J-Lo to Kim, this is one trend that has caused a stir on the red-carpet several times over the last year.

In fact, barely-there sheer gowns are becoming something of a regular fixture: at this year's famed Met Gala in New York, for example, Beyonce and Kimmy K went head-to-head in a dress-off as they both strutted their stuff and embraced near-nakedness.

We can't wait to see the next high-profile take on the trend, but until then, let's take a look through some of our absolute favourites…



Want to know who's responsible for kicking off the trend in the first place? Yup, that'll be Rhianna – a celebrity rather fond of the naked-look at the best of times. At the CFDA Awards a year ago, she wore a dusty pink, see-through dress, covered top-to-bottom in Swarovski crystals and made by designer Adam Selman.

Apparently Adam designed the dress for Ri-Ri, 27, as he admires her risk-taking and he really wanted to make a statement (well, he definitely achieved that).

Kim Kardashian:

​The reality TV star and wife of rapper Kanye West never looked better than she did when she stepped out onto the Met Ball red-carpet last month. Clad in a custom Roberto Cavalli by Peter Dundas dress, the 34-year-old really turned heads.

She also donned a slicked-back pony rather than tousled tresses, so as not to hide any of the stunning Cavalli creation. 

10/10, we say.


In a remarkably similar look to Kim's, 33-year-old Beyonce was equally impressive in skin-tight sheer Givenchy.

Riccardo Tisci had created the nude number which boasted only strategically placed jewels to hide Bey's modesty. The singer finished her look with a slicked back, curly ponytail, rosy pink lip and striking cat eye.

​She's no newbie to the trend either: the former Destiny's Child sported a stunning sheer gown to the same event the year before.


Jennifer Lopez:

But though the rest most certainly shine, we think the absolute queen of the sheer dress is none other than 45-year-old goddess Jennifer Lopez. She arrived in a see-through wonder at the Billboard Music Awards… and pretty much showed up absolutely everyone else. Is is daring? Absolutely. But does it work? Most definitely!

The mother-of-two also left nothing to the imagination at the 2015 Met Gala, arriving in a stunning red (well the little bit of material there was red, anyway) ball gown custom-made by Donatella Versace.

And let's not forget the singer's nearly-naked look for the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party earlier this year. She looked more stunning than ever in a Zuhair Murad couture dress, which she accessorised with a white fur wrap.





Vogue US has just released the front cover for its special edition Met Gala issue, and there's one glaring absence from the list of celebrities who made the cut.

Singer Rihanna was crowned Anna Wintour's style winner on the night, and graces the cover in her stunning canary yellow floor-sweeping gown, a creation by Chinese designer Guo Pei.

Riri shared the exciting news with her 18.6m Instagram followers today, posting an image of the vibrant cover and writing, "WOW!!! I am very honored to have this image selected for the new cover of @voguemagazine !! #metgala2015 #art #fashion #Vogue"

The competition was stiff at this year's Gala, with Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Kendall Jenner and more all looking downright fabulous, and receiving their rightful recognition in the list of celebrity names featured on the special Vogue cover. 

However despite Kim Kardashian's stunning Roberto Cavalli ensemble, her name didn't make the cover – something which many are taking as a direct snub from Anna Wintour to Kim and Kanye.

The star couple's names were featured on last year's Met Gala cover, and they even graced the front of Vogue themselves back in April 2014.

Since then though, Kim and Kanye's appeal seems to have worn off for Anna, and it seems once you're out of the editor's good books you won't get back in.

After all, who can forget her face earlier this year when little North West had a temper tantrum in the middle of Kanye's Adidas show at New York Fashion Week?

We can't decide who looks more upset, Anna or North…

Kim didn't exactly make things easy for herself on the night of the Met Gala by outright ignoring Anna's "selfie ban" and posting a number of pictures from inside the event, which many say may have led to the decision to cut her name from the cover.


I just love this girl @ladygaga

As for Rihanna, she definitely seems to be the star of the moment at Condé Nast, as this is her second year running as cover star for the Vogue Met Gala issue:

It's definitely well deserved for RiRi, but we doubt Kim's too happy all the same.
