The naked dress trend continues to live on. From Cher in the ’70s to Kendall Jenner at this year’s Met Gala, the look has consistently popped up on red carpets for decades. This week, Dakota Johnson showed off one example of how the trend has evolved. Her version of the naked dress is more loose-fitting and has subtler sheer details than many other red carpet iterations. In other words, the particular dress she chose was less about showing off her body and more about flaunting the fantastic dress.
Attending the UK premiere of her new movie, The Lost Daughter, during the 65th BFI London Film Festival, Johnson wore a Gucci taupe sheer lamé midi dress with padded shoulders and feathery cuffs. The easy column shape of her dress is definitely a less intimidating, more accessible look compared to the curve-hugging naked dresses of yore, so it’s a fantastic example to copy if you want to test the waters.
