Were it legal — and perhaps a tad more socially acceptable — we have no doubt that more than a handful of celebs would jump at the chance to hit the red carpet naked (looking at you, Kim K!). But since that's not the case, stars have settled for the next best (and sparkliest) thing: the naked dress. 

From sexy sheer detail to gravity-defying cutouts, there was no shortage of skin on the 2018 red carpets. Lucky for you, we've rounded up the year's most naked looks, all in one place.
