Addison Rae stepped out in another daring trend at Elle’s 2021 Women In Hollywood event on Tuesday evening in Los Angeles.

The TikTok star stunned in a black Brandon Maxwell cutout dress with a thigh-high leg slit. She arrived to the soiree in a sleek Ralph Lauren blazer but soon removed it to pose for the cameras.

Rae slipped on a pair of ultra-minimalist black strappy sandals with wraparound ankle ties and held Jimmy Choo’s “Cay” metallic clutch, that’s currently sold out, to complete the chic outfit.

This ab-baring style of naked dressing has been popular among it-girls and supermodels as of late.

Even high-fashion designers like Christian Siriano, LaQuan Smith, Christopher Esber and Victor Glemaud have taken note of the hot trend and featured sexy interpretations for spring 2022.

Risqué black looks have becoming a patten for Rae. Earlier this month, the “He’s All That” actress hosted a Pandora ME dinner event in Brooklyn, NY, where she donned the “Debbie” catsuit from the Dundas x Revolve collection, silver bracelets and a pair of miles-high Christian Louboutin pumps. To complete her monochromatic ensemble, the 21-year old influencer added a black chunky belt featuring eyelet detailing, high-waisted intimates and a black bra, for an avant-garde feel.
