The trend continues after Taraji P. Henson most recently rocked the look at the BET Awards.

The sheer skirt over leotard trend lived on at Giambattista Valli.

The 50-year-old designer sent three revealing looks down the fall 2016 Haute Couture runway, including a diaphanous mint green empire gown (above), a black frou-frou mini dress and a pale lavender Grecian gown — all with crystal embellishments.

The look, which has become a red-carpet favorite and most recently was seen on Taraji P. Henson and Olivia Munn, is a fresh alternative to sexy cutouts and down-to-there necklines while still showing plenty of skin. It's also a solid choice for curvaceous bombshells and ball gown-averse millennials alike. It soon could rival the high-low hemline, which boasted a solid awards season run from 2011 to 2015 in Hollywood.
