This Next-to-Naked Trend Was All Over the Met Gala Red Carpet

Though Kim Kardashian certainly took home the trophy for best naked dress at the Met Gala this year—showing up in Marilyn Monroe’s Jean Louis dress from John F. Kennedy’s 45th birthday party guaranteed her that title—a handful of other attendees are still vying for a similar but not entirely identical accolade. That is, the one for the best next-to-naked look. And trust me—it’s a close race. 

Even from the very beginning of the Met Gala red carpet, we could see that all-black, all-lace looks would be one of if not *the* top trend of the night, with Vanessa Hudgens, who co-hosted Vogue‘s livestream, arriving early in a gothic getup by Moschino. From there, we spotted Maude Apatow in Miu Miu, Karlie Kloss in Givenchy, and Phoebe Dynevor in Louis Vuitton, all wearing similarly sheer, black ensembles for the evening’s event. But wait; there were more.
