No more black! After showing up to red carpets at major events this fall in a series of sultry black ensembles, Kylie Jenner went "naked," wearing a nude-hued gown to Rihanna's 2015 Diamond Ball. But it's not exactly what you think. This is Jenner's highly edited, black tie take on the ever-popular "naked dress" trend. While the "naked dress" is usually see through and shows lots of skin —think Beyonce at the 2015 Met Gala— Jenner's dress was close to the color of her skin and looked painted on her body.
Since the Diamond Ball is a charity event, it was a smart move for the reality star to wear something a bit more classic and low-key, as opposed to something in the vein of her supremely sexy, dominatrix-inspired looks of late.
Jenner opted for a clingy August Getty Atelier dress. It had a corset bodice, a belt, and a long train which looked absolutely elegant when fanned out during her red carpet poses. This was Jenner at her most goddess-like. For a moment, I forgot that she is just 18, since she looked so grown up and adult chic.
Jenner also wore her thick, black locks down and on her shoulders, framing her face.
The train really was something else.
The back had flow — from her hair to the train.
The dress also clung to Jenner's curves.
Is it me or is this one of Jenner's most Kim Kardashian-like moments? She has had plenty of those, but this ranks up there as one of the best.
You can't go wrong with the over-the-shoulder pose.
Jenner had mega long locks, just the event's hostess — Rihanna! Of course, her suede-like, matt lips were on full display. She rarely, if ever, veers from that signature. That's her comfort zone.
It was a nice change of pace for Jenner, who has been all about black.
She went the dominatrix route at the AMAs with her leather and chains ensemble.
Her hair matched her dresses at several events in a row. You can also see her leg scar in this photo. She posted an Insta pic of the scar in a body positive moment.
Props to Jenner for turning up at a ball and wearing something gorgeous and classic. As a teenager, she is all about trends, specifically starting them. For the Diamond Ball, she did it right by being trend-free.
