Do you think that Rihanna was the first who wore a sheer gawn? Think it again!
When she stepped out in her Adam Selman gown at the CFDA Fashion Awards this week, she joined the ranks of “naked dress”-wearing celebrities. A very particular group of women wearing dresses not just to show off one of their assets (J.Lo’s plunging cleavage in that green gown at the 2000 Grammys? Child’s play…) but all of their bodies at once. Some of the world’s most fearless female celebs in all their body-baring glory, after the Rirri’s “naked” party…!

The original wearer of the naked dress is Marilyn Monroe. She was known for wearing dresses that made you wonder “am I seeing something I’m not supposed to see?” on several occasions, most notably in Some Like It Hot and when singing Happy Birthday to President Kennedy in 1962.
