Talk about a big reveal.
Fashion’s new LBD – a date-night staple – is totally transparent. Stripped of fussy and unnecessary lining, the evening essential now exposes…sexy underwear.
In recent months, celebrities from Naomi Watts and Dua Lipa to Addison Rae have dazzled on the red carpet in a variety of brief-baring LBDs. Their see-through maxi gowns are made of stretchy lace and embellished knits.
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the look is sheer romance.
Most daring of all is Lauren Sánchez, the fiancée of Jeff Bezos. While in Milan to celebrate her boo’s 60th birthday, the 54-year-old helicopter pilot Instagrammed a dramatic photo of herself clad in a Dolce & Gabbana logo mesh sheath over a black bra and thong. A day later, the fearless fashionista pulled up to the Italian brand’s party in a corseted body stocking.
Rita Ora, meanwhile, has made transparency her trademark. Over the years, the body-positive artist has worn more than a dozen filmy numbers. She even wore a racy Tom Ford white lace wedding gown to marry filmmaker Taika Waititi in 2022.
