Is it just us, or has every red carpet event in 2015 gradually gotten less about the clothing and more about showing as much skin as humanly possible? The "naked dress" trend has seriously exploded, reaching an apex during this year's Met Gala, where women like Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez and Joan Smalls all arrived wearing little more than mesh gowns lined with strategically placed sparkles. We had a feeling that this would also be the case at the MTV Video Music Awards as soon as Miley Cyrus — the veritable Queen of Nipple Pasties — was announced as the host, and guess what, friends? We were right.

While there were a few conservative looks in the bunch, the vast majority of female attendees showed up in varying degrees of undress. From plunging haute couture gowns to super-sheer mesh and barely-there mini-dresses, it seemed only appropriate to rank Sunday night's looks on an ascending scale of nakedness. You're welcome.
