Paris Hilton hasn’t really been culturally relevant for about half a decade now, but on a slow news day gossip hounds can always rely on the heiress to have done something scandalous enough to merit a headline. In this case, the issue was with the dress Ms Hilton wore to Diddy's Red Carpet Pre-Grammy Celebration on Thursday. It was a sequined black number, unremarkable in most ways, except for the fact that it had a sheer black V-shaped panel straight down the front, which showed off… well, not Paris’ underwear, because there was none, as Us Magazine reports.
This wasn't your average little black dress.
For some reason, the internet is having a fit over Hilton going pantsless, although she certainly isn’t the first person in history, or even in Hollywood, to do so. Although we have to give it to Mrs. Hilton – at 33, the heiress is looking as fine as ever.
And here's a better view of that sheer panel.
Of course, Hilton isn’t the first to opt for the slightly risqué side panel look. Gwyneth Paltrow opted for a similar style in black and white for the Iron Man 3 premiere, while another Marvel lady, Jaimie Alexander, tried out an even more revealing panel dress for the Thor: The Dark World premiere later in the year. We’re going to go ahead and call it the half butt dress and it was pretty impressive.
Sheer panels are in: who wore it better?
