If nothing else, 2013 was the year for naked dresses in the worlds of celebrities. Cornering the market, of course, was Miley Cyrus, who showed more skin than she did wear any clothes whatsoever. From her body-hugging chainmail-inspired Marc Jacobs gown at this year’s Met Gala, to the barely-there Tupac and Biggie-covered mini she wore to the MTV European Music Awards, girl was showing off her body all year long.
