While it's hard to pinpoint who was the pioneer of the "naked dress," the definition of the eye-catching non-clothing clothing item has certainly evolved over the past decade. As we inch closer to 2020, we continue to see more celebs unapologetically showing off their bodies thanks to a little body positivity and, you know, freeing the nipple. From the CFDA red carpet (hi, Rihanna) to the MTV Video Music Awards (we see you, Miley), here are 40 of the best naked looks of the decade.

Gwyneth Paltrow (2013)

The front of Paltrow's Antonio Berardi dress may have been rated PG at the 2013 Los Angeles premiere of Iron Man 3, but when she turned to the side, the sheer number totally became R-rated.

The model and designer wore this chain Laura Dewitt outfit on the 2014 VMAs red carpet. Anyone else getting Rose McGowan 1998 VMAs dress vibes from this look?

Beyoncé (2015)

Beyoncé's 2015 Met Gala dress, which was covered in strategically placed multi-colored rhinestones, reminded us not only how beautiful she is in Givenchy, but also how a high ponytail can be your best accessory.

If the Met Gala isn't the place for Givenchy ass-less chaps, then where? (You know what I mean.) When Madge wore this avant-garde ensemble to this year's Fashion People Oscars, the popular response was...not welcoming. No matter—Madonna shut it all down with an Instagram statement, in which she called the outfit a political statement on ageism and sexism.

Madonna (2016)

Madonna is known to strike a pose in anything-but-ordinary outfits. At the 2016 Met Gala, her black lace Givenchy outfit exposed her chest and butt as a "political statement on ageism and sexism."

Ciara (2016)

When Ciara hosted the Billboard Music Awards in 2016, she made sure to bring it. The singer may have worn seven different looks that night, but this silver dress with top and bottom cut-outs from Philipp Plein takes the cake.

Emily Ratajkowski (2016)

At the 2016 Harper's Bazaar Icons party, the body-positive activist wore a Julien Macdonald gown with a neckline that went all the way down to her belly button. If you squint hard enough, you'll notice that the dress featured sheer sparkly fabric on the sides and the front that held everything together. We love to see it.

Nicki Minaj (2017)

The rapper attended Haider Ackerman's fall 2017 show in Paris with one boob out and her nipple covered with a black diamond pastie from Alexandre Vauthier. It reminds us of Lil' Kim's purple outfit at the 1999 VMAs.

Lady Gaga (2017)

Lady Gaga walked the 2017 Grammy Awards red carpet in all of her underboob glory wearing platform over-the-knee boots, leather shorts, and a leather feathery cropped jacket. A star was truly born.

We're not only jealous of how good Gabrielle Union's skin looked here (that glow!), but also of the Jean Paul Gaultier spring 2017 Haute Couture gown that she wore to the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party.
