Not all naked dresses are created equal. With so much competition in the world of the barely there, it takes something extra special to cut through the noise of the backless and the underboob. But if there's one woman who knows how to translate 'naked' into 'fashion', pulling off the art of revealing and concealing with aplomb, it's Emily Ratajkowski.

Always a favourite guest at the bash thrown by Vanity Fair, who this year celebrated three decades of the best after party in the business, EmRata's new take on naked dressing was courtesy of Jacquemus (her earrings, meanwhile, were Messika). Hot off the brand's most recent catwalk show at the end of January, the sculptural gown - with a bodice that was cut to stand away from the body, thereby showing a sliver of both sideboob and underboob - was actually the collection's wedding dress.

A wearable piece of art from every angle, it proved that naked dresses very much still have legs. Elsewhere at the after party, 'naked' touches got a good showing from Vanessa Hudgens, whose bump took pride of place on the red carpet in sheer Alberta Ferretti, and Ice Spice, whose negligee-style gown, complete with visible bra and undies, was a masterclass in boudoir dressing. Tracee Ellis Ross also gets a mention for putting a seriously clever spin on the naked dress courtesy of Balmain, a white gown that was simply printed with the shape of a high-cut bodysuit. Genius.
