Grammys 2022: Every see-through dress on the red carpet

The sheer, the gauzy, the nip-prone: Let's take a look at all the see-through dresses we saw through at the 2022 Grammys.

The see-through dress has arrived at the 2022 Grammys red carpet. To sweep ones eyes over a celebrity style roundup these days is to see swaths of tulle, chiffon, voile, netting, lace, and organza...and not much underneath. Celebrities have not given up their other tactics when it comes to trying to shock us: cut outs still rule, and slits are as high as Fezco watching TV. But just like at the 2022 Oscars, sheer gowns have taken the Grammys red carpet by quiet, wispy storm. 

Dua Lipa's Versace dress involved a semi-sheer, BDSM-influenced top, with leather straps that left much of her torso visible. This dress is doing a lot at once. But didn't we all have a post-vaccine urge to leave our houses wearing every single sexy thing we own? Nothing wrong with that.

Paris Hilton, meanwhile, attended the Grammys looking like a fabulously dismembered disco ball. Her sweeping gown contrasted dazzling gems with sheer, tight fabric that then flowed into a gossamer train that seemed to hover inches above the red carpet. The sequined swirls and heavy crystal detail seemed to reference Las Vegas' famous showgirls, while the high-necked mantle and strain gave her look a regal silhouette. Plus, she matched her cooking utensils.

Doja Cat, in Atelier Versace, demonstrated that the sheer trend can go in a completely different direction: She looked futuristic, but futuristic as imagined by a person living in the 1950s or 60s. Her half-sheer gown gave the impression of a rhinestone-studded vintage showgirl, also likely a nod to the 2022 Grammys location: Las Vegas. Unlike the dresses of the 20th century, Doja's dress features a sheer back, in which the thong design of her bodysuit can be seen.

Laverne Cox, in John Galliano, looked like a successful seductress who rose from her California King, threw on a black lace peignoir, and bumped into the Grammys red carpet on the way to another secret assignation.

Rachel Zegler, star of West Side Story, wore custom Christian Dior—though the dress is sheer on its own, Zegler was styled by Sarah Slutsky (according to CheckTheTag) to make the dress look more opaque. The sheer trend, paradoxically, can be made modest(ish.) Zegler plays Maria in the reboot of the classic musical, and her princess-y, mostly opaque gown stays more or less in tune with her ingenue brand.

These are by no means the last sheer gowns we'll see on Grammy night. The so-called “naked” dresses push boundaries and play with questions about what is “appropriate.” Celebrities, particularly celebrity women are called on every day to show off their bodies, they make money from their bodies, their bodies receive constant criticism and feedback. Sheer dresses dare to ask: Is there any limit to how much people want to see? They challenge the dated ideas, grounded in misogyny, that women have to walk a fine line between revealing their bodies and concealing them. “Here I am,” women in sheer dresses seem to say. “I dare you to call me trashy.” 

Or maybe the sheer dress trend is not a commentary at all. It's 82 degrees today in Las Vegas. These people are going to be close together, under hot lights. If you're thinking about shaming a woman for reveling “too much” today, maybe get a hobby, but also consider this: None of the celebrities at the 2022 Grammy Awards are in any danger of getting sweaty.
