There’s a new “naked” dress in town — and instead of the see-through, sparkly styles we’ve seen on red carpets for years, this season’s take is completely covered up.

In recent weeks, celebrities including Bella Thorne, “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Marlo Hampton and Kylie Jenner have turned heads in trompe l’oeil looks screened with photorealistic prints of the nude female form.

Designer Jean Paul Gaultier, who pioneered the nearly-naked look in the ’90s, recently teamed up with stylist Lotta Volkova on a cheeky collaboration that’s got Jenner, Hampton and Tove Lo “freeing the nipple” in a whole new way.

Syndical Chamber’s Sergio Castaño Peña is leading the trend as well, having outfitted Thorne, Iggy Azalea, Demi Lovato and Cardi B in his curve-enhancing creations.

To be sure, this faux flesh-flashing fad isn’t for the faint of heart — but I had to know if a non-famous person could pull off one of these sexy styles in public, so I ordered a $12 Shein version that bore a striking resemblance to a dress I’d spotted on SZA, hit the streets of uptown NYC and hoped for the best.

Yep, it’s even better from the back.
