Celebs Go Nude on the Red Carpet

Minka Kelly goes nude

There's been a recent trend of celebs going nude on the red carpet, opting for paler hues and skin toned dresses. From neutral to beige and even blush, the buff color has shown up in every form this month. It can be difficult to avoid looking washed out, so this trend can be hard to master. Some stars go head-to-toe neutral while others pair their nudes with vivid accessories; done correctly, the overall look can be quite impressive as these actresses recently displayed.
