Just when we thought the naked dress had died a death, Gwyneth Paltrow has offered a new interpretation of it, giving the popular red-carpet look an elegant, more modest twist.
The actress chose a floor-length sheer Fendi gown in a tan shade for the 2020 Golden Globes. The high neckline and long sleeves injected a sense of refinement and maturity to the look, while the ruffle detailing denoted luxury and femininity. Flesh-coloured lingerie was worn underneath the dress.

Paltrow added further glamour with diamond earrings and a beautiful sparkling necklace which was layered underneath her dress. Her hair was styled in a centre-parting and left loose.
The naked dress was first most famously pioneered by Rihanna at 2014 CFDAs when she wore a crystal-encrusted sheath dress by her designer friend, Adam Selman, accessorised with a matching turban and fur stole. In the years that followed, the look became a popular red-carpet choice, first with Hollywood stars such as Beyoncé, and latterly Victoria’s Secret models from Bella Hadid to Alessandra Ambrosio.
While the naked dress might be one of the most pervasive styles of the last decade, Paltrow proved that there are still fresh ways to work it in 2020.

While the actress undoubtedly had an enjoyable evening at the Globes, where she was joined by her co-stars from The Politician, the actress and entrepreneur was clearly glad to get home at the end of the night.
“The best part of the night is always getting home,” she wrote on Instagram, alongside a picture of her smiling in the bag of a car.
