Oscars 2020 red carpet

Oscars 2020 red carpet: best naked dresses

The Oscars 2020 red carpet is heating up thanks to Hollywood’s celebrities going all-out in their Sunday best.

Now, it goes without saying that there are some stunning gowns at this awards show, but one of our favourite dress types is the naked dress. It’s glam, sexy and utterly fierce, and tonight was a case in point.

From Scarlett Johansson’s barely-there slip dress bodice, to Rooney Mara’s fierce ASF lace situation, the night was nothing short of fire.

Scroll though to see our Fashion Editor’s picks of the best naked dresses and all-round sexiest gowns from the Oscars red carpet and viewing party…

Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett Johansson is, honestly, our eternal muse, balancing grace and elegance with straight-up sexiness in this lingerie-corset-turned-slip-dress.

Rooney Mara

Rooney Mara goes all-out with everything from the hip-up on her dress made from sheer lace. Talk about fearless!

Gal Gadot

Gal Gadot perfectly offset her baby pink skirt with a sheer lace top, giving the dress a semi-naked edge.

Never one

Never one to shy away from bold wardrobe choices, Blac Chyna werks it in this fire dress, with a neckline to rival J.Lo’s famous Grammys dress.

Cynthia Ervio

Cynthia Ervio teams a thigh-high split and sexy, plunging neckline with a voluminous skirt and asymmetrical detailing.

Brie Larson

Brie Larson isn’t technically in a sheer dress but her gown certainly turns up the heat by ~revealing~ a low neckline and a near hip-high split.

Charlize Theron

Charlize Theron reps the more ‘understated’ take on the naked dress, with a simple off-the-shoulder strap and uber-high split, coupled with a long train.


Meanwhile, at the Oscars viewing party, Bleona Gereti rocks a head-to-toe sheer situation consisting of glitter (and not much else).

Josephine Skrive

Josephine Skriver proves you can break the ‘low neckline or leg split’ rule by sporting both like it ain’t no thang.

Dita Von

Dita Von Teese makes a similar move but in a more neutral colour palette.
