Is This the Naked Trend 2.0?

Gina Marinelli

We don’t really have to explain why “naked” clothing can be so polarizing. The term itself is quite the oxymoron, yet it’s also quite a popular trend. But without going the sparkle-covered Rihanna, Elsa-Hosk casual-skirt, or Cara Delevingne futuristic-and–coin covered routes, Mandy Moore did the controversial look in a way that might even get a thumbs up from the most bashful dressers.

The This Is Us star opted for a Valentino lace dress in the brand’s classic—and currently on-trend—shade of red. However, the entire base layer of the design nearly matched Moore’s complexion to a T, allowing the open weave to give a naked look without the, well, nudity. The dress itself even featured a high neckline, long sleeves, and an elegant maxi-length skirt that lent itself to a more modest appearance. Moore topped off her “naked” look with a pair of skin tone–matching pumps, a statement clutch, and turquoise earrings.
