4. hallie berry 2002

Hallie Berry’s sheer embroidered Elie Saab number from 2002 may very well be the original naked dress. And we can’t think of anyone else who could have better launched the trend than her. Not ready to go all the way like Hallie? That’s okay, us neither. Thankfully this Sidney Sheer Lace Gown ($308) from Dress The Population has a little more coverage than the original.

6. lupita nyong’o 2014

How could we forget the swirling Prada number, which Lupita Nyong’o wore while taking home a trophy for her role in 12 Years a Slave? The Best Supporting Actress Oscar winner described her custom dress color as “Nairobi blue” in honor of where she grew up in Kenya.

8. janelle monáe 2020

In 2020 Janelle Monáe brought it in a custom crystal-lacquered silk lamé tulle mesh evening gown hand-embroidered with over 168,000 Swarovski crystals.
