Celebrities couldn't get enough of daring fashion in January 2023.
At the Golden Globes, for example, Liza Koshy wore a see-through lace dress with a visible thong.
Paris Fashion Week was also full of bold looks, including Doja Cat's crystal-covered body paint.
Keke Palmer kicked off 2023 in a dazzling maternity gown with a plunging neckline.
For the New York Film Critics Circle Awards, Palmer donned a Michael Kors gown with thin straps and a backless bodice that showed her tattoos.
The silver frock was also "hand-embroidered with recycled sequins," according to the designer's Instagram page.
The following day, Jamie Lee Curtis put a bold twist on a classic suit.
Dolce & Gabbana designed her outfit, which included see-through pants and a black blazer with a satin bow tied around the waist.
The jacket's plunging neckline revealed that she wore it with only a bra underneath.
Rita Ora wore a vibrant dress crafted from lace that same week.
Though the musician's fashion is often bold, this fuchsia dress from Rodarte was especially daring. It was entirely see-through and flared at the bottom of its skirt, highlighting her strappy heels.
Ora wore it with no bra underneath, adding only a black pair of underwear and diamond, heart-shaped earrings.
Liza Koshy experimented with multiple daring trends at the Golden Globe Awards.
Her Morphew Atelier dress was undoubtedly one of the most daring looks on the event's red carpet.
Made from lace, the black, see-through gown had a deep-V neckline and a tiered, floor-length skirt. Its backless bodice also exposed her thong and had thin strings hanging across her shoulders.
Kendall Jenner, on the other hand, wore a simple, sheer dress while out in Los Angeles, California.
Her asymmetrical dress was designed by Ludovic de Saint Sernin. It had a halter neckline with an attached flower and a ruched skirt that reached her ankles.
Jenner paired the $905 dress with black underwear and Manolo Blahnik heels.
On January 13, Lizzo wore a sleeveless top made partially from denim belts.
Her belted bralette and green cargo pants were part of the ensemble she wore for Lori Harvey's birthday party. She paired them with pointed pumps, diamond jewelry, and pink eye shadow.
"Oh this? Just @diesel couture off the runway 🤭," Lizzo wrote about the outfit on Instagram.
Hailey Bieber wore a little black dress covered in cutouts that same day.
She wore the strapless minidress with sheer garter tights and pointed heels for a night out with her husband, Justin Bieber.
The dress had ruched fabric that wrapped around her body and a giant ruffle that extended down its bodice. Additionally, there were layers of lace covering each cutout.
Quinta Brunson's sparkling, mesh gown stood out on the Critics Choice Awards red carpet.
Whereas many stars wore bright colors and metallic fabrics on the red carpet, Brunson opted for a black-and-gray gown.
Designed by Robert Wun, the semi-sheer garment had long sleeves, giant ruffles that lined the entire dress, and a mermaid-style skirt.
Janelle Monáe also wore a daring, black gown for the event.
The musician's sheer halter dress was custom-made by Vera Wang. It was crafted from ruched, mesh fabric, and had two slits beneath Monáe's hips.
The dress — which Monáe wore with no bra underneath — also had a long train that extended behind them.
Sarah Michelle Gellar donned an edgy jacket and accessories while promoting "Teen Wolf: The Movie."
Designed by MONSE, her black blazer had split sleeves that revealed her latex gloves. She also wore a white top and a black miniskirt from the designer.
To complete the look, Gellar added black pumps, a diamond necklace, and neutral makeup.
At the start of Paris Fashion Week, Rosalía attended a Louis Vuitton show in a sweater that was extremely oversized.
The bright Raf Simons sweater hung off her shoulder and extended to her knees.
She paired the garment with Miu Miu sunglasses and chunky Versace boots.
J-Hope opted for a unique, monochromatic ensemble at Dior's show.
He tucked a gray, long-sleeved top into matching trousers, and wore an attached, pleated skirt on top.
To make the look even bolder, J-Hope added futuristic sneakers, an $880 Dior chain necklace, and chunky sunglasses.
Troye Sivan, on the other hand, went shirtless for Kenzo's runway show.
In place of a top, he wore a thick bomber jacket with Kenzo patches.
Sivan also donned the designer's striped jeans, boxers, an elephant-shaped buckle belt, and chunky boots.
Ahead of her show at Dubai's Atlantis The Royal resort, Beyoncé made a golden red-carpet appearance.
Dolce & Gabbana designed her daring dress for the private concert. It was sleeveless with a triangle cutout in the middle of its structured top and had two tall slits that extended the length of her skirt and showed her fishnet tights.
In addition to the dress, Beyoncé wore a golden, bubble-shaped shawl that reached the floor across her arms.
At Loewe's Paris Fashion Week show, J Balvin wore an oversized coat that concealed his outfit.
His puffy leather coat was designed by Loewe, and perfectly matched his tan shoes.
He completed the look with dark sunglasses and his signature rainbow buzz cut.
Doja Cat stole the show at Schiaparelli's Haute Couture runway with her head-to-toe red outfit.
Though many stars wore bold outfits at the event, Doja's was arguably the most shocking.
As Vogue reported, her look was meant to transform her into a living sculpture, with makeup artist Pat McGrath spending nearly five hours covering the musician in more than 30,000 crimson Swarovski crystals.
She also wore a strapless dress that was covered in red beads across its skirt, carried a matching scarf across her arms, and wore red boots with Schiaparelli's signature toe embellishments.
Kylie Jenner's lion-head dress was also daring — and a bit controversial.
The fake animal head was attached to Jenner's strapless, body-hugging gown made from velvet, which she paired with gold-toe heels.
As Jenner said on Instagram, the piece was a "faux art creation constructed by hand using manmade materials" like foam, resin, and wool.
Though celebrities like Shay Mitchell praised the look in the comments section of her post, other social-media users took issue with the realistic-looking animal head.
"Even though it's not real, it's still disturbing and in bad taste," one person wrote.
Schiaparelli said on Instagram that the fake animal heads featured in its show were meant to represent the "lust, pride, and avarice" present in Dante's "Inferno" — which served as inspiration for the runway show.
Noah Cyrus paired a sparkling bikini with a sheer dress at Alexandre Vauthier's show.
Her gothic ensemble was as dark as her hair, creating the illusion that she was covered head to toe in black, pleated fabric.
She also wore strappy sandals and bleached eyebrows with the outfit.
Similarly, Leonie Hanne wore a chain-mail bra at Elie Saab's show.
The German influencer paired her see-through top with a high-waisted skirt and pointed heels embellished with sparkling bows.
She also carried a crystal-covered purse and draped a jacket across her arms.
Salma Hayek celebrated "Magic Mike's Last Dance" in a fishnet dress with floral appliqués.
Oscar de la Renta designed her dress, which she wore with black undergarments and sparkling, platform heels from Larroudé.
To complete the look, Hayek also carried a green Bottega Veneta purse and donned jewelry by Hoorsenbuhs.
Kylie Minogue's take on daring fashion included a sunshine-yellow suit covered in sparkles.
She wore the outfit — which included the crystal-covered blazer, matching pants, and a yellow button-up blouse — at Valentino's Paris Fashion Week show.
Christine Quinn wore the most daring skirt slit of the month at Jean Paul Gaultier's show.
Her black, suit-style dress, which was created by the designer, had long sleeves and a plunging neckline that almost reached her stomach.
Its floor-length skirt, on the other hand, had a slit so tall that it almost reached the peak of the gown's neckline.
Rita Ora took the "naked" trend to a new level at the end of the month.
While promoting her new song "You Only Love Me," Ora wore an orange, latex gown with only star-shaped pasties and underwear beneath it.
The asymmetrical dress had a single strap up top and a skirt that reached the floor.
Also on January 28, Katy Perry wore a silver, two-piece set that looked like it was made from foil.
She wore the metallic bralette and matching, full skirt at the G'Day USA Arts Gala.
On Instagram, she joked that her shiny outfit was inspired by Miranda Kerr's moisturizer, as the model was celebrated at the event.
