In sheer fabrics we trust. At the 2023 VMAs, celebrities’ soft spot for low-cut, nipple-freeing gowns reigned supreme. Here are some barely-there ‘fits that should've won a Moon Person.

Doja Cat

Yes, Doja Cat — you have our attention. The rapper’s currently in her spooky (yet slightly controversial) era, so she was destined to wear this spiderweb-inspired dress from Monse.

There’s stunning, then there’s Hall of Fame iconic. TDE’s own Doechii belongs in the latter category, as her loose-fitting sequin look from Dsquared2 won the night— and my heart.

Nelly Furtado

What an icon. Nelly Furtado’s promising career revival not only brought new ears to her infectious catalog, but encouraged new eyes to fawn over this backless Dundas dress.

Selena Gomez

Oh, she ate. After an eight-year hiatus from the ceremony, Selena Gomez returned with one statement: This beaded, cherry-red number from Oscar de la Renta was meant for her.

Similar to Doechii, JT’s ‘pretty in pink’ look belongs in the Hall of Fame. The rapper, who is something of a fashion maestro, wore a Mirror Palais corset fresh off the runway.

This adds new meaning to her breezy 333 track, “X.” Tinashe tapped into her inner Lil’ Kim (yes, that legendary purple look) with this sheer stunner from Stella McCartney.

Megan Thee Stallion

Now, this is some real hot girl sh*t. Megan Thee Stallion was one of many celebrities to set the mesh tone. The rapper wore a custom boudoir-inspired gem from Brandon Blackwood.

Nicki Minaj

Clearly, Barbie’s blushed-pink repertoire rubbed off of Nicki Minaj. Or in this case, the bridal Harajuku barbie. The rapper affirmed her doll crown in this Dolce & Gabbana look.

Flo Milli

Flo Milli, the star you are. The charismatic rapper continued her love letter to Y2K-fashion with this two-piece stunner from Area’s RE23 collection.

Karol G

A classic sheer number? Yes, please. Karol G tapped this body-baring ‘fit from Ashi Studio’s to prove that nude everything will always be a moment.
