It was the Latin American Grammys last night and another excuse for the stars to mingle and chat about the joys of being rich and famous. As they feigned smiles for the cameras while trying to hide that their expensive shoes were cutting into their feet, they made sure their outfits shined. One lady who was shiny in particular was none other than Jada Pinkett Smith.

The popularity of the naked dress has heightened and wained and in its latest cycle, it has taken the red carpet by storm. In fact, supposed rivals and people tend to act awkwardly around each other while their husbands are completely oblivious, Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian, both wore naked dresses to the Met Gala this year. Beyoncé's was Givenchy and Kim K's was Roberto Cavalli.

Rather than going for something skintight and prone to breaking like the aforementioned dresses, Jada Pinkett Smith's silver interpretation of the naked dress had plenty of give and the lower half has a lot more coverage than the standard. She glowed and actually looked comfortable, who'd have thought it was possible?!
