The naked-dress trend continues to live on. From Cher in the '70s to Kendall Jenner at this year's Met Gala, the look has consistently popped up on red carpets for decades. This week, Dakota Johnson showed off one example of how the trend has evolved. Her version of the naked dress is more loose fitting and has subtler sheer details than many other red carpet iterations. In other words, the particular dress she chose was less about showing off her body and more about flaunting a fantastic design. 

Attending the UK premiere of her new movie, The Lost Daughter, during the 65th BFI London Film Festival, Johnson wore a taupe Gucci midi dress in a sheer lamé fabric with padded shoulders and feathery cuffs. The easy column shape of her dress is definitely a less intimidating, more accessible look compared to the curve-hugging naked dresses of yore, so it's a fantastic example to copy if you want to test the waters.

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of Associate Director of Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
