Considering the threat of wardrobe malfunctions or underwear exposures, it goes without saying that the sheer dress trend isn't for everyone. But while there have been plenty of flops, we've seen a few successes.
Alicia Keys happens to be one of those fortunate stars who has championed the sexy style (remember the sideboob-baring look from her "Girl On Fire" album art?) and she added yet another win to her sheer ensemble scorecard last night at the 2012 MTV Europe Music Awards in Frankfurt, Germany.
The 31-year-old superstar worked the red carpet in one of Stella McCartney's wildly popular "Miracle" dresses. The bodycon frocks have been seen on a slew of celebs and we're really digging Alicia's green and black version of the flattering design, which she paired with Gianvito Rossi pumps and a Repossi necklace.
However, while the illusion panel along the side of the dress leaves little to the imagination, the sheer detailing at the shoulders has us wondering, what's going on? Sadly the material is too light for Alicia's skin tone, so it looks like her bra straps are showing. As we all know, the color "nude" isn't universal leading to many mismatched messes. However, we think this was a minor hiccup in an otherwise sensational look.
Alicia also changed into a sheer black top for a performance of "Girl On Fire"--check out both looks below!
