Typically, when we discuss the ever-so-popular naked dress trend, we're talking about sheer pieces—I'm looking at you, Emily Ratajkowski. However, Nicole Kidman just proved that you don't have to show much skin at all to participate in the trend. Attending the Los Angeles premiere of her new film, A Family Affair, Kidman wore a Gucci custom silk cady nude gown in a hue strikingly similar to her skin tone, creating the illusion of nakedness. She completed the look with beige heels by Paris Texas.

While Kidman and her stylist, Jason Bolden, have access to luxury designers willing to create custom-dyed fabrics, the rest of us will have to settle for off-the-rack colors to match our skin tones—easier said than done. To help get you started, I curated a handful of nude dresses in a variety of hues. Scroll down to shop my naked-dress picks inspired by Kidman's newest outfit.

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 13 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.
