Dua Lipa made something of a style statement last night rocking up to the Barbie premiere in a nearly naked chain mail dress.

the Don’t Start Now star, 27, stars in the long-awaited film as Mermaid Barbie – and last night’s outfit was the perfect tribute to her on-screen character.

Appearing alongside other cast members, including Margot Robbie, the singer commanded attention on the pink carpet in a body-skimming, see-through dress, which sparkled in the sun.

The peek-a-boo gown featured a plunging scooped neckline and a low back, but it was the transparent nature of the dress that really got fans talking.

The Naked Dress trend

Dua Lipa isn’t the only celebrity to put their own take on ‘The Naked Dress’ trend that has swept across Hollywood in recent years.

Whether it’s a see-through showstopper, with stylish underwear taking center stage, or an ice skater-style sheer number with strategically placed embellishments, big-name brands from Valentino to Mugler have been hot on the trend.

From Florence Pugh’s nipple-bearing Valentino gown, to Emily Ratajkowski’s fishnet dress, the nearly naked fashion trend has reigned supreme on the red carpet.

Heidi Klum

Heidi Klum dressed to impress at the world premiere for the highly anticipated second installment of James Cameron’s Avatar in a figure-hugging, one-shoulder gown.

The structured, yet flowing, ethereal dress was a real trompe l’oeil as the several layers of shimmering semi-sheer fabric made it look as if Klum was covered in water – and nothing else.

Florence Pugh

Florence Pugh’s nipple-bearing Valentino number caused such a stir on social media, that the actor felt compelled to speak out about the furore. “Listen, I knew when I wore that incredible Valentino dress that there was no way there wouldn’t be a commentary on it,” Pugh wrote on Instagram.

“What’s been interesting to watch and witness is just how easy it is for men to totally destroy a woman’s body, publicly, proudly, for everyone to see,” she continued. “What’s more concerning is…. Why are you so scared of breasts? Small? Large? Left? Right? Only one? Maybe none?” she added. “What. Is. So. Terrifying.”
