CFDAs Underwear Split - P 2015

Kim Kardashian and Julianna Margulies showed off their, uh, Calvins with sheer looks at American fashion's biggest night.

While no one at this year’s CFDA Awards is quite as naked as Rihanna was last year, there are still stars showing quite a bit of skin. The favored way? By wearing a dress just sheer enough to get a full look at the undergarments.

Visible panty line was clearly not a concern for Kim Kardashian, who walked the red carpet with hubby Kanye West in an embellished Proenza Schouler gown that put not only her new baby bump on full display, but also her high-waisted granny panties and matching black bra — a trend we haven't seen in full force since the 2008 Met Gala, when starlets took the event's superhero theme to Superwoman costume-esque heights.

Meanwhile, the always elegant Julianna Margulies revealed her black underwear in a sparkling gray Michael Kors gown, accompanied by the designer. Model Hannah Davis wore what was essentially a black cutout bra under her sheer jacket, while actress Virginie Ledoyen complemented her white suit and black top hat with just a very prominent bra underneath.
