When Gwyneth Paltrow stepped onto a red carpet last year in an Antonio Berardi gown with a completely sheer side, the Internet almost combusted. It was a dress that didn’t allow for underwear and resulted in the coining of a new term (“side butt”). Its power lies in the fact that it revealed just enough and invited you to imagine the rest. Crotch shots and nip slips? That would elicit yawns more than gasps nowadays. But imagine a woman with absolutely nothing underneath her thin silk dress? Now that’s extremely provocative. Tip: book that waxing appointment pronto.
