Slick Woods has had quite a year, whether it’s appearing as one of the faces for Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty line or modeling in Marc Jacobs’s Fall 2017 campaign. On top of that, she was shot by Tim Walker for the 2018 edition of Pirelli’s infamous calendar, and last night, as she celebrated its launch, she used a red carpet trick that gave Kendall Jenner a run for her money.
Woods appeared in a see-through gown that, while providing strategic cover-up in the front with a wavy string of maribou feathers, bared almost all in the back–except for the model’s black high-waisted thong. This follows the recent reappearance of exposed thongs on the red carpet and off: Most famously, Jenner wore a bejeweled see-through gown for this year’s Met Gala, featuring a lowly-draped back that showed off the model’s black undergarment (if the minimal coverage of her version can really be called a “garment”).
Woods’s take consisted of a bit more fabric than Jenner’s edition, with a wide waistband that reminds more of a boy short. Its high fit, matched with the gown’s classic polkadots, gives the ensemble a vintage feel (though no other era before the ’90s would have approved such a daring attire). The model’s orange buzzcut (and matching brows!) ensured that the look was anchored in the contemporary, though even fluorescent hair could not distract from the model’s exit, which was granted to garner more attention than her entrance.
