'If I could come out naked, I would': Rob Kardashian's ex Adrienne Bailon is unabashed as she exposes herself in sheer ruffle front dress
An eye-catching, and let's face it, revealing, outfit worn at a big event can make a career.
Just ask Elizabeth Hurley, who owes her time in the sun less to acting talent than Versace, or Jennifer Lopez, who despite being a star already, catapulted into the A-list thanks to the same designer.
And Sunday at the Oscars Angelina Jolie managed to lift her notoriety to new levels by flashing her leg provocatively in her velvet Versace gown.
The same can't be said for Adrienne Bailon, who arrived at the Escape to Total Rewards event in New York last night wearing an outfit that wasn't so much a risk but a kamikaze mission.

And while it's easy to work out what the pretty brunette's intention was, the actual thinking behind this peculiar outfit is hard to fathom.
Adrienne exposed way too much when her ruffled cream adornment, which was barely containing much of her chest, moved to the side and exposed pretty well everything to the cameras.
The former Cheetah Girls star was not wearing any underwear under the sheer dress, the result too explicit to publish.
But the former girlfriend of Rob Kardashian was was unabashed, telling Celebuzz at the event: 'If I could come out naked, I would.'
She then added: 'This is just some fancy stuff to throw over my little naked body,' referring to her barely-there ensemble from her upcoming fashion line collaboration
with Dominique Auxilly.

Adrienne's ensemble defies explanation in many ways as it's such a paradox, a look that is both revealing and not sexy in any way at all.
If anything, it's was comical look, as she looked like she forgot her skirt, not to mention her underwear and inexplicably got a tablecloth snared up to her belt buckle.
Indeed, if the singer had intended this outfit to be a joke on a grand scale, she's wholly succeeded.
Extreme measures: As if dating a Kardashian wasn't attention seeking enough…
And even if she dressed in this bizarre fashion in order to be the talking point of the night, it was also a success.
But if Adrienne hoped to have cemented her place in posterity with this look, she will be disappointed.
All she's succeeded in doing is cementing her figure in people's minds, for all the wrong reasons.
