Rihanna wore this dress, Rated R, to the CFDA fashion awards in New York on June 2. The Big Apple is talking about little else.

RiRi, who was collecting the Fashion Icon award, showed up in completely sheer and shimmering Adam Selman with just a fur boa to cover the bits she didn't want people to see (there didn't seem to be any).

Some folks think this was her revenge dress, aimed at rapper Drake who she just broke up with. Others think she wore it to show Instagram, who suspended her account over racy pictures, who was boss.

We just think she wore the dress just because she's possibly the only person in the whole world who could, would and did.

Does this sheer diamante-studded concoction even qualify as a dress? Singer Mariah Carey wore barely-there Zuhair Murad to the World Music Awards in Monaco on May 27. Her hips don't lie - that dress would look good only on Jennifer Lopez.

Mariah's smile says she thought she was smoking in the dress. There's no good way to say this, Mariah - you didn't.

Coming up: Miley just won't 'back' down

All eyes were on American singer and actress Miley Cyrus at the MTV European Music Awards at the Ziggo dome in Amsterdam on Sunday, November 10 and the former Disney princess didn't disappoint. Miley pushed her boundaries further in a very revealing mini dress. The 20-year-old wore a plunging backless halter dress that was really little more than a top and chequered thigh-high boots. The ‘dress' was emblazoned with images of late hip-hop stars Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G – both of who were victims of shootings – and the words ‘Please Stop Violence.' In August this year, Miley shocked watchers with a very raunchy performance at the MTV Video Music Awards.

Coming up: A dress that says 'why wear anything?'

American model Erin Wasson left very little to imagination when she turned up at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday, August 25, at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn wearing a dress so sheer it seemed hardly worth the bother of wearing anything at all.

The black sheath, created by Alexandre Vauthier, was high-necked and full-sleeved but completely see through, with Erin's modesty preserved by black bandeau-style underwear.

She accessorized her outfit with a black turban and black stilettos.

However, the ensemble left fashion critics cold. Erin made it to most worst-dressed lists across the Internet, even eclipsing other outlandish outfits like Miley Cyrus' '80s -style beaded leggings and crop top.

Coming up: Gwyneth's attention-seeking dress

Gwyneth Paltrow, who was named the 'Most Beautiful Woman in the World' by People magazine, wore an Antonio Berardi column dress at the Hollywood premiere of Iron Man 3.

The dress was demure seen from the front but revealed the entire length of the actress' toned legs and hips seen from the side. Gwyneth, who plays Tony Stark's love interest Pepper Potts, is known for her fashion choices but rarely takes the sexy route on the red carpet.

Kristen Stewart continued her risqué red carpet run at the premiere of her movie On The Road in New York. She wore this minty Erdem Moralioglu see-through with satin underthings and dress with neon Christian Louboutin heels. But far from being a sheer delight, Kristen looks like she arrived at the wrong party. The retro-style ensemble would be great on the French Riviera, but not on the red carpet in icy New York. We do like smoky-eyes and couldn't-care-less hair though.
