We’ve all had that nightmare: You walk into your 10th grade classroom and everyone starts to laugh. You look down and realize that you’ve completely forgotten to put on clothes! Ugh, we’re breaking out into a cold sweat just thinking about it. But for some celebs, that bad dream is often their terrifying reality. Some major stars like Rihanna and Lady Gaga have made it their calling card to go bare on the red carpet in gutsy see-through outfits. It’s also a go-to tactic for lesser-known actresses to steal the next morning headlines by flashing their flesh in public. OK, to be fair, sometimes the ladies might just be suffering an unintentional wardrobe malfunction, and the glare of spotlights and flash bulbs, or a sudden breeze, are to blame.
In recent weeks Pussycat Doll Melody Thornton, supermodel Stephanie Seymour, actress Adrienne Bailon and even A-lister Gwyneth Paltrow have given their stylists the night off and stepped out in sheer outfits that leave little to the imagination. So now that the trend is kicking into high gear, we’ve decided to take a look back and count down the 40 most scandalously see-through outfits of all time! Head to the (very NSFW) gallery below and see what we mean.
