Lady Gaga started the trend when she wore a red lace dress over matching undies to accept her Best New Artist accolade in September 2009. Other celebrities have jumped on the transparent trend, showing off not one of their assets but all of their bodies. The barely – there fashion piece was again a hit on the American Music Awards red carpet.

AMA host, JLo stunned in a number of sheer numbers, including a completely see-through Zuhair Murad couture black tulle kaftan dress, accessorized with a sparkling star belt. A few of our local gals have set tongues wagging when they opted for a sheer number, as well. Remember Denise Zimba and Pam Andrews?
