Everyone Got The “Naked” Fashion Memo At Cannes

Okay Irina Shayk, we see you.

The 76th Annual Cannes Film Festival ends on May 27, so now’s the time for all those attending to pull out the fashion stops. And while some, like Lily-Rose Depp, wore a vintage Chanel dress to make a sartorial impact, others — a lot of others — tapped into the ever-popular “naked” look. Indeed, several stars leaned into the sheer outfits trend at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival, including Julia Fox who wore not one, not two, but three transparent garments this week. The Uncut Gems actor is known for taking risks with her style (remember her towel dress?), so this bold move was fitting for her.

As for the other stars who jumped on the see-through garment bandwagon, Irina Shayk most recently mesmerized the crowd in a Gucci bralette and underwear combination. She wore the pieces underneath a plain black mesh slip and blazer as her party look, proving her barely-there outfit worked as soirée attire. If you like this idea, but can’t fully picture yourself in exposed undergarments at your friend’s rooftop birthday party, perhaps check out Alessandra Ambrosio’s look instead. Her semi-sheer dress featured long-sleeves and a turtleneck design that provided more coverage compared to a mesh slip.

But whether you choose to adopt the naked lewk into your own wardrobe or not, you’ll have fun seeing how the stars confidently rocked it on the red carpet. Check out their styles ahead.
