Sheer Goodness: Here's How To Wear The Winning Oscar's Red Carpet Trend

When the occasion calls for it, step into your sheer goodness and call it a day. Here's why this trend is worth to try.

A little party never hurt no body and in fashion terms we couldn't agree more when we're talking about a cheeky show of skin. From cutouts, low-backs, laces, mesh, and tulles, red carpets are not stranger to these little peaks of femininity. We love a sensual show of skin and we of course won't stop anyone who can rock a sophisticated high leg slit. Although conventionally flattering, sheerness are sometimes big hits or miss. There are several ways you can go right with sheer fabrics but there are also quite a number of mistakes not to commit. A wrong choice of nude illusion shade, an awkward cutout shape, or an unforgiving length of a leg slit can take any red carpet dress straight into a whirlwind of bad fashion choices.

On this year’s 92nd Academy Awards, our celebrities kept a variety of sheerness. Caitriona Balfe, Irish actress and former model leads our impressive list with her Valentino Haute Couture. If you think the black base of the dress is already flattering, can we talk about how her cover-up melts so good on her skin? The pink bowed overlay screams madame in all angles. Looking for a sensual twist to your ball gown? Tune into Cynthia Erivo’s custom Versace gown and how much of the sheer adds elegance to the already luxurious gown. Scarlet Johansson always comes through in every red carpet ensemble and she made sure she won’t miss this bit. Scarlet stuns in an alluring Ralph Lauren gown that features a sheer bodice and a satin skirt to keep the mood on. Love the Swarovski sweep detail! 


If it’s the contrast moment you love, eye on Gal Gadot’s Givenchy highness. The lace sheer top keeps the edgy personality of the dress whilst the flow and presence is well taken care of the exaggerated pink train. Is it even Rooney Mara on the red carpet without her signature black sheer gown? The actress knows how to keep it bold yet sultry in her Alexander McQueen gown. Last but definitely not the least Carly Steel, tv presenter and producer, gives the fluff to sheer in her custom Zuhair Murad black and gold gown. The perfect illusion to an already magnificent gown is a sheer bodice. This look can attest to that!
