This week, we’ve featured Abbey Clancy and Jaimie Alexander in commando dresses that definitely did not come with underwear included in the price. Are some things best left to the imagination, or do you like dresses that really test the limits of what is possible?

Gwyneth Paltrow‘s Antonio Berardi gown now seems to pale in comparison. Micaela Schaefer, on the other hand, simply wore some artfully draped tape and called it a dress. Melody Thornton showed up in her birthday suit, which is widely considered to be one of the worst dresses of 2012.

Do you think wearing something so revealing on the red carpet is a do or a don’t? Are celebrities simply wearing commando dresses to get attention?
