Kim Kardashian West caused audible gasps when she showed up to Tom Ford’s spring 2018 New York Fashion Week show in a strapless, curve-hugging latex number (above), but she’s far from the only star to turn heads while wearing the unforgiving material.
From red carpets to award show stages, many a celeb has chosen to make a statement with a skintight latex number. Take Beyoncé, for example, whose sheer Givenchy number at the 2016 Met Gala was bold enough to land her on many a best-dressed list. And that wasn’t even her only plastic ensemble to write home about last year: Queen Bey took the stage during her Formation tour in a latex red bodysuit that rivaled even Britney Spears’s “Oops! ... I Did It Again” jumpsuit.
