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.
