From Marilyn Monroe's custom Jean Louis gown—which she famously wore to sing “Happy Birthday” to John F. Kennedy—to Rihanna's envelope-pushing Swarovski crystal–encrusted Adam Selman gown, the trend of the naked dress has stood the test of time, and it's not going anywhere. Risqué indeed, it's the ultimate red carpet fashion statement and one that Game of Thrones' Emilia Clarke just pulled off in the classiest of ways at the 68th Emmy Awards.
Clarke donned a modestly opaque flesh-tone Atelier Versace gown that matched her skin tone perfectly. The strapless body-con number was the right amount of sultry, and its sculptural bodice and neckline elevated the look. It fit like a glove, a prerequisite to fit into the naked dress category, for a stunning take on the trend unlike any we've ever seen. This red carpet moment may have been minimalist in the accessories department, but with the confidence Clarke exuded, it was a total showstopping winner.
