19 of our favorite baring-it-all looks

Traditionally, the red carpet has been a place for celebrities to showcase the most expensive, ornate designer works. But after years and years of slinky silk gowns and draped chiffon dresses, it seems as if those very same celebrities have decided to take back the red carpet, making whatever statment they want while wearing whatever the hell they want. And while focusing on fashion—especially nearly naked fashion—may not seem the like the most "feminist" thing to do on the surface, the barely there red-carpet gown has become a huge political statement. By wearing revealing looks, female celebrities have started taking control of their bodies on their terms. And in doing so, they have begun promoting more healthy body images, showing that the female form is beautiful in any shape. 

Click through the gallery to see red-carpet history's most naked dresses. Because if popular culture in 2015 has showed us anything, it's that feminism is an ever-evolving movement, and more and more celebrities are willing to push its boundaries. And if that means more naked looks are to come, so be it. We're ready for it.

Amber Rose at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards
We're not quite sure if "Runaway" was written about her, but if we know anything about Amber Rose, it's this: She is beautiful, fearless, and the very definition of "sex" personified. Those three qualities all culminated in her VMA Laura Dewitt getup. Sure, the Vegas showgirl ensemble is a homage to Rose McGowan's '98 VMA dress, but that's not what really matters. What does is the fact that Rose is helping to promote a healthy body image—one where women aren't (and shouldn't be) afraid of showcasing their bodies on their terms.

While she wished Tana Mongeau a happy birthday on one account, her other one paints a different picture

If you're in YouTube and influencer culture as deep as the rest of the internet, you already know that Tana Mongeau and Jake Paul got engaged yesterday. How does Mongeau's ex, actress Bella Thorne, feel about the situation? According to her official Instagram account, she's totally supportive of her. But, as is usually the case, her (what I call) Finsta tells the more realistic story.

"And then she cried the white girl cry"

I'm not sure I'd even call the ongoing spat between Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus a beef. We've seen Minaj in real beef, like her ongoing feud with Cardi B that culminated in some major Fashion Week drama. But even though things aren't that level between Minaj and Cyrus, things are still definitely not okay.

Congrats!

Amanda Bynes has just graduated with the Class of 2019 from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles. Late Monday evening, Bynes shared a photo to Twitter celebrating the achievement, posing alongside a classmate in her cap and gown.

TMZ shared additional selfies with fellow classmates from the graduation ceremony. Sources told TMZ that Bynes seemed "ecstatic," and that she was "getting tons of love from her teachers and peers."

The actress has been enrolled at the school since 2014, though, as Page Six notes, was kicked out for a short period of time toward the beginning of her studies, but returned and completed her program within five years.

In March of this year, Bynes checked into a mental health facility after an alleged relapse, following four years of sobriety. Prior to that, she had returned to the public in late 2018 with an interview with Paper in which she opened up about her experience with depression after the release of She's The Man, as well as her drug use.
