List Rules Which of these "naked dresses" is the craziest?

From traditionally over-the-top fashion venues like the Met Gala to tamer red carpets at the Oscars and Golden Globes, celebs have been tackling a brand new trend in showing skin: the sheer dress. These see-through numbers have adorned some of the hottest bodies in the world, changing the way we think about style and sexiness.

What other "not-dresses" or "not-clothes" have our fave lady celebs been "wearing"? Of course any list of celebrities wearing sheer clothes has to include J-Lo's curves and Kim K's... well, everything. But there are also some surprises! Even tamer stars like Emma Stone and Jennifer Lawrence can get down with their see-through selves. Just about every celebrity has a "naked dress" or two in their closet.

This list also pays homage to some of the originators of this sheer dress trend like Kristen Stewart, for example. The most memorable revealing dress may be Rihanna's sheer dress from the 2014 CFDA Fashion awards. You might be thinking, "Wow, can you actually legally wear that outside?" The answer is yes! At least if you're one of these celebrities (and you don't mind freezing your butt off). They've been un-donning clothes and making parents mad since the early '90s. Flesh-colored mesh? Yeah! Crystals as covering? Why not! Pasties? You betcha! Apparently naked is the new black, and has been for a few years.

Jaimie Alexander's Azzaro dress is a master class in how to apply secret double sided tape. Guessing a Brazilian was a definite must for this look.

Really, are there any words? Maybe just three letters: J.Lo, doing her typical thing in Versace.
