Over the past few decades, wearing see-through dresses during public appearances has become more and more of a popular trend for celebrities. From Madonna to Gwyneth Paltrow, Join Facts Verse as we explore how celebrities who wore see-through dresses had nothing to hide.
Madonna has always known for pushing boundaries when it comes to how much of herself she shows to her fans. This include when the star makes public appearances, and one of the most notoriously naked public appearances that Madonna has ever made at the 2016 Met Gala. The dress didn’t leave much to the imagination, but most fans had already seen everything there was to see of the celebrity years prior. In 1992, Madonna released a coffee table book by the name of Sex that featured many, many nude pictures of her. This book showed Madonna baring it all, and it came at a time when the star was a good deal more desirable than she was in 2016! Still, Madonna has aged fairly gracefully.
Some of Madonna’s other controversies include her tumultuous relationship with actor Sean Penn during the 1980s. Madonna was head over heels in love with the actor, and even dedicated her second album to him. However, it seems that Sean flipped back and forth between disinterested and being abusive. During the relationship, there was one infamous incident where Madonna claimed Sean tied her to chair and threatened to cut off her hair!
Kim Kardashian is another figure on this list that bore all to the public long before appearing in this risqué outfit. Still, it’s unquestionable that the star and her outfit deserve inclusion in the video! While Madonna’s previous public exhibition came in the form of an officially released coffee table book that you could purchase in stores, Kim’s came via a leaked sex tape that featured intimate relations between her and her then love, Ray J. Some say that it was this sex tape that made Kim Kardashian a star, though the celebrity has done her best to make a slightly more respectable name for herself in the years since coming into the spotlight. Still, that doesn’t stop her from appearing almost naked in public!
Kim Kardashian has been in the news more recently due to her ex-husband Kanye West, whom she recently divorced. The two share children, and it seems that rapper Kanye West isn’t all that comfortable with some of Kim’s risqué behavior that she exhibits in front of the children. While it’s inarguably that Kanye has a point, he’s one to talk! The rapper has his host of own problems, and is also no stranger to ridiculous fashion choices.

Elizabeth Hurley is an actress that has never afraid to exude her sexuality on the screen, which she’s done in such classic films as Bedazzled and Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery. The prior film saw Elizabeth playing a decidedly seductive devil, while the latter film saw Elizabeth playing the beautiful and butt-kicking love interest of the titular character. Both films took full advantage of Elizabeth’s sex appeal, and she has always been similarly alluring when it comes time for her to make a public appearance.
During the height of Elizabeth’s fame, she formed a celebrity couple with fellow star Hugh Grant. This picture shows the two of them together, though Elizabeth seems much more interested in making love to the camera than she does to her partner. Perhaps this is why their relationship ended! Regardless of whatever domestic turmoil may have been going on at home, it’s unquestionable that the actress looks great in this revealing dress. Elizabeth is still around, and still looks nearly as great as ever at the age of almost 60. However, nothing really beats the actress in her prime!
Rihanna is another celebrity figure that has shown that she isn’t afraid to bare it all to the public. The singer made a name for herself with her upfront sexuality well over a decade ago and has only continued to up the ante when it comes to how far she is willing to push the boundaries. One of the most memorable moments of Rihanna’s exhibitionist career came in June of 2014, when the singer wore a dress that allowed those in attendance to see everything! Rihanna’s dress was completely see-through, and it certainly turned heads. Rihanna is still making risqué public appearances, though the fact that she recently gave birth has slowed her down a little. Rihanna continues to be one of the sexiest women alive at the age of 34, and she likely has many more years of baring it all ahead of her!
Before such things became commonplace, Kate Moss shocked the world by wearing a see-through dress in 1993. The appearance occurred in September, and everybody and their mother were talking about the famous model’s risqué outfit. Though plenty of stars have continued to push the envelope as far as what kinds of outfits are acceptable in a public forum, Kate Moss will always retain a place in history given that she was one of the first to do it publicly.
Lil Kim is another popular musician that was a pioneer in the field of being frank about sex. She broke out on the scene in the 1990s and rose to popularity thanks to her association with the late Biggie Smalls. The female rapper got her stage name on account of her being incredibly short, with her height being a measly 4’ 11”.
The celebrity’s sex appeal was a big part of what made her a hit with crowds initially, and she has continued to play into her sexy demeanor. She has considered an influence on more recent female rappers that have continued the trend of revealing their bodies in their videos and talking about sex in their lyrics, such as Nicki Minaj and Cardi B. This picture shows Lil Kim in an odd purple dress that certainly doesn’t leave much to the crowd’s imagination, which is likely just how she wanted it.
While the majority of the aforementioned stars have always been very upfront about their sexuality and their willingness to use it in order to attract fans, Beyonce has always tried to paint herself as a classier artist. However, the singer has certainly bared a great deal of her body over the course of her career… just by happenstance. This picture taken in May of 2015, and shows Beyonce wearing a dress that few other stars could pull off without looking trashy. This singer has since tried to become more family friendly with her work in the recent remake of The Lion King, and she probably wants to put this public appearance behind her. Still, fans that want to get a peak of what Beyonce’s hiding will always have these pictures to turn back to if they so choose.
If Beyonce is a musician that started out mildly risqué and has since tried to make herself seem more family friendly in the eyes of the public, Miley Cyrus represents someone with the opposite problem. Miley started out as a child star working with Disney, having pushed into show business at the behest of her father. Miley’s father is Billy Ray Cyrus, who became a one-hit wonder thanks to the song “Achy Breaky Hart”. If Billy Ray thought it was a good idea to get his daughter into show business at first, he has since come to regret it after Miley’s coming of age.
Miley Cyrus achieved fame playing the titular character on the Disney series Hannah Montana. When Miley came of age and the show ended, she found herself in a similar position to many grown-up child stars before her. Not wanting to fall by the wayside and be pigeonholed as a kid forever, Miley went about trying to act as adult as possible. This picture represents the kind of thing that it was common to see Miley wearing after she first entered into her adulthood. Billy Ray Cyrus has since expressed his regret about getting his daughter into show business, but Miley’s an adult now and she can make her own decisions.
Rose McGowan rose to fame in the 1990s, thanks largely to her appearance in the hit television show Charmed. For a time, Rose involved with rock star Marilyn Manson. This picture shows Rose at the 1998 MTV Video Music Awards, which the aforementioned rock star accompanied her to. Though Marilyn was the one that was better known for making public spectacles at the time, Rose’s outfit certainly a good deal freakier than his was that night.
Rose is now an outspoken advocate for women’s rights in Hollywood, and it’s doubtful that she would interested currently in this kind of objectification. Rose ironically played a large part in the #metoo movement, which ended up having some severely negative effects for former companion Marilyn Manson. Besides wearing this see-through dress, Rose also likely regrets any of the time that she spent with the controversial rock star, who is now sued by multiple women with claims of abuse.
While all of the aforementioned stars that we’ve taken a look at so far in this video weren’t going too far off brand when they made their nearly-nude public appearances, it was a slightly different case for Gwyneth Paltrow when she wore this see-through dress to the premiere of Iron Man 3. Early on in her career, Gwyneth could be seen as a wholesome alternative to other female stars that were more upfront about their sexuality. However, in recent years, Gwyneth has slowly grown from being the lovable girl next door to a figure that is often made fun of for being out of touch.
Many people have ridiculed Gwyneth for her beliefs regarding alternative medicine, with the actress having her very own company that sells such things as psychic-vampire repellant and vaginal eggs. For those that don’t know what vaginal eggs are, they are stones with supposed healing properties that women are meant to insert up their private parts.
When these aforementioned celebrities wore these see-through dresses in public, they proved that they had nothing to hide. Now it’s time to hear from you: did you know that multiple celebrities have worn see-through dresses during public appearances, and that some of them include Madonna, Elizabeth Hurley, and Gwyneth Paltrow?
