Kendall Jenner Keeps the Naked Dress Trend Alive and Well at Cannes

Posted on

Kendall Jenner and her oft-photographed cohort—the KarJenners, the Hadids—have never shied away from a good naked outfit—short or long, formal or casual. Famously, there was her 2017 Met Gala dress, made from one (one) piece of string. A few months later, her famous sib Kim Kardashian stepped out in what was basically a transparent shift dress sandwiched between a jacket and briefs. Last year, Bella Hadid wore what basically passed as the Frozen version of the look, complete with blingy, icy embellishments, along with some casual crocheted seperates. The trend was still going strong as of September, when Selena Gomez wore an incredibly romantic Rodarte look to the #BoF500 party in New York. And of course, even more examples go back to a high point of the trend in 2016 after it exploded in 2015. But Jenner’s first naked look, courtesy of Cannes, is one of the glammest, sheerest, party-ready looks we’ve seen yet—and then she took us by surprise in a totally different version of the trend.

As of Friday, Jenner hadn’t attended any films—but she was at the Secret Chopard Party that night, wearing a short, sheer green Alexandre Vauthier minidress blinged out with glitter (and accessorized with Chopard earrings, of course) that caught the camera flashes. No bra, no worries.

She caught the look on her Instagram stories, too.

But a new day calls for a new dress, and on Saturday, she hit the red carpet for the premiere of Girls of the Sun (the only female-directed film in competition at this year’s Cannes, BTW) in an naked dress that was otherwise opposite in every way: long to Friday’s short, tulle to Friday’s mesh, white to Friday’s black. It’s sort of like if a Bond girl was also an angel. Should you be considering a major investment, it hails from Schiaparelli’s Fall/Winter 2017-2018 couture collection.
