Every time we see a celebrity in a sheer dress or a semi-naked look (example: the bralette and blazer combo), we feel the slightest pang of jealousy. How do they look so good in them and make not wearing underwear beneath a sheer, hip-high slit dress look completely...normal? We can't ever imagine showing up to a work party in a beaded naked dress. (We'd probably become a meme.) The daringly naked look, it seems, only works if you're in Hollywood.

Celebrities like Bella Hadid and Kylie Jenner love to take this risk on the red carpet, so much so that we've occasionally seen a few NSFW wardrobe malfunctions. Whether it's a completely sheer gown, or barely enough fabric to be considered a dress, many Hollywood A-listers have worn just about anything to galas and movie premieres. Click through to see your favorite stars wearing outfits that are sheer, low-cut, with cut-outs, or thigh-high slits...and sometimes, all of the above! We'll stick to our more modest cocktail dresses.
