Jena Malone Just Wore Full-On Underwear On The Red Carpet
Jena Malone made her affinity for being naked quite clear in her debut scene in Catching Fire—or her character, Johanna Mason, did, anyway. As an actress with a knack for edgy and impressive red carpet dressing, it was inevitable that Malone would soon try something slightly more body-baring.
Enter: the underwear dress, a bizarre trend that’s been growing ever since Kristen Stewart made that her signature during Twilight: Breaking Dawn, Part 2’s press tour in 2012. Since, Jennifer Lawrence’s done it, Chrissy Teigen’s done it and Rihanna’s definitely done it—which means it’s a real, CFDA-approved “thing” now. And at last night’s annual For Love and Lemons “Skivvies” party, Malone decided to give the look a go, too, with a completely sheer (as in, completely sheer) dress and lingerie.
I’ll be honest when I say I’m a huge proponent of the sheer skirt styles of red carpet’s past, especially those of the Zuhair Murad variety Stewart wore two years ago. With a more structured gown, the peek-a-boo undies are just that, peek-a-boo, and properly so. It allows for the subtle undergarments to be alluring, not alarming.
I’m genuinely curious: are you a fan of Malone’s underwear-dress look? Let me know in the comments or on Twitter.
