Barely-there affair

Barely-there affair

All eyes were on Miley Cyrus at last week's MTV Video Music Awards, but let's not forget the rest of the attention-seeking crowd who tried to grab some of the limelight on the red carpet.

Nobody could top Cyrus' nude latex bra and undies get-up, but it's obvious that these four were determined to out-flash each other with their barely-there ensembles.

From eyeful to eyesore, all this near-nakedness has truly set new standards for next year's skin parade.

1) Even though this sheer long-sleeved Givenchy creation is from 2010 and several other stars have already taken various incarnations of it for a spin, US R&B singer Ciara, 27, still looked stunning.

The embellished illusion netting, built-in gloves and feathered hemline are a dream and she obviously has the body - and enough body confidence - to go commando for it.

We're literally just one strategically-placed crystal away from seeing her lady bits.

2) There's see-through, and then there's I-can-see-your-butt-cheeks.

Australian rapper Iggy Azalea, 23, threw modesty out the window for the latter, eschewing undies as well for an even more peekaboo look than Ciara.

She wrapped her JLo-worthy rear in a translucent nude embroidered sleeveless column gown from Emilio Pucci featuring gold bird and leaf motifs.

Too bad the colour, or lack thereof, washed her out.
