The Latest Trend To Crack Hollywood: The Bare Bum

It was bums vs boobs on the after-party red carpet.

A rather surprising trend took hold of the red carpet at last night's Oscars, with bare bottoms making a cheeky appearance. For the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party, celebrities switched classic red carpet gowns for something a little more risqué. While the naked dress has been an A-lister favourite for some time, it's usually accompanied by a rather large pair of briefs to maintain a little modesty. Not this time.

For 'The Naked Dress 2.0' totally bare cheeks took to the red-carpet - and boobs for that matter - beneath super sheer gowns and mesh dresses. Aside from itty-bitty G-strings and thongs, the bottoms very much took centre stage.

It was the battle of boobs or bums (or both!) at the after-party. Florence Pugh, in her second Valentino look of the night, Hunter Schafer and Olivia Wilde opted for the red-carpet bra (or feather in Schafer's case).

Daisy Edgar-Jones took on the bare bottom trend in embellished Gucci, a style switch-up from the actor's usual understated-but-chic ensembles. Ciara gave a masterclass in both the bare bottom and boob reveal, wearing a floor-length crystal halter-neck dress with nothing but a matching G-string and black leather gloves. Ashley Graham in custom Alberta Ferretti gave a more subtle take, in a sheer black gown with micro-mini hotpants whilst Eva Longoria, wearing Zuhair Murad, also opted for the sheer black + hot pants combo.

Lady Gaga stepped out in the perfect nod to the trend. The singer's Versace 2023 gown - which made its runway debut just days before - featured an almost too low drop-waistband, revealing just a smidgen of bum - cheeky.

This is the phase of the naked dress, whatever will be next?
