While most celebrities have learned to wear underwear to avoid an embarrassing moment when they step out of a car, others continue to attend red carpet events in nothing but a see-through top with no bra.

Celebrity sheer tops have truly become the intentional nip slip, especially when celebrities know the camera flashes of the paparazzi always reveal more than the garment is designed for. See the celebs who weren’t afraid to bare their breasts on the red carpet under the thinnest layer of sheer fabric.


Showing up at the 2014 CFDA Awards to pick up her Fashion Icon Awards, Rihanna wore a custom Adam Selman gown made from more than 200,000 Swarovski crystals.
