Italian models Giulia Salemi and Dayane Mello have become the target of some serious criticism after donning similar revealing dresses on the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival. Although the racy outfits might have raised a new bar in what is allowed to #Show on a public event like the prestigious film festival, it's certainly not the first time that someone shows a bit too much skin for the love of the cameras. From Jennifer Lopez to Kim Kardashian, the ladies in showbiz surely know how to put on a show and turn heads when it's time for some in-your-face promotion.
Nude dresses, a history repeating
One of the pioneers was actress Rose McGowan, shocking all attenders and viewers at the 1998 Video Music Awards by basically wearing just a thong and a ripped fishnet, matched with fetish high heels.The year after at the same show, Lil' Kim showed up as a sexy version of Ariel the little mermaid with one full boob out and nipple covered with purple, shell-shaped lace.Going a little more sensuous and wrapped in a sensational Versace's green silk chiffon dress at the 2000's Grammy Awards, Jennifer Lopez sent her boyfriend P.Diddy and the paparazzi in a frenzy and was ubiquitous on the newspapers and #Fashion magazines the day after the ceremony. Even the always fashionable Gwyneth Paltrow couldn't help going a bit naughty at the Oscars 2002, with a delicate but provoking see-through bodice.
Recent shocking dresses
Pop darling Rihanna had everybody talking when she fearlessly appeared in a see-through dress that left nothing to the imagination at the CFDA Awards in 2014. Beyonce certainly wasn't less provocative when she graced the 2015 Met Gala red carpet in a dazzling sheer, crystal-covered gown that made her look like she was sparkling naked. Not to mention Kim Kardashian and the many times her provocative dresses have caused hysterical reactions and debates in the general public.
It seems one of the most frequent and abused tricks by female #Celebrities in the history of showbiz keeps paying out every time. The important, in fashion as in everything in entertainment, is making it look as it never really happened before.
