Will this be 2017's red carpet “naked dress”?
Seems that the "naked dress" has been redefined by Vogue as the chain-mail dress. And it might just be the biggest, baddest celeb red carpet trend of 2017.
Mrs. Obama opted for a more modest rosy, custom-made Atelier Versace gown while Jenner’s dress, obviously also custom, was a silvery metal mesh inspired by Paris Hilton's 21st-birthday dress.
Though different in style, both ensembles set in motion the trend of chain-mail fashion that’s taken hold of celebrity style —and shows no signs of letting up in 2017.
And if the chain-mail trend was not already evident enough, post-Balmain show, Kim Kardashian West changed out of the “naked dress” she was wearing in the front row and into a chain-mail number for the after-party.
In December 2016, Lady Gaga wore a chain-mail inspired shimmering combination to perform on Saturday Night Live.
If you, like us, don’t want to miss out on these metal looks we recommend you start with a chain-mail top, it doesn’t have to be a full dress. And if you’re brave enough, make sure that you’re wearing the dress, and it’s not wearing you!
