A model causes a commotion as she walks down the street in a naked Jean Paul Gaultier gown.
The £500 gown gives the impression that the woman wearing it is completely naked. The naked dress has also sparked a backlash from feminist activists.
On Thursday, the model got plenty of attention while walking near the Chiltern Firehouse hotel in West London.
It happened after glamour model Keeley Hazell, 35, flaunted the racy maxi dress on social media, joking that it was ideal wedding guest attire.

Feminist activists are unhappy and the question is which is worse? Letting women walk naked in the streets or wearing the offensive and transparent dress from the posh clothing brand?
The debate is ongoing in the U.K. but the shocking and revealing dress did not escape the attention of the media and of course netizens.
The contentious gown was taken from the fashion house’s archives and will be featured in a new collection with Kanye West’s stylist pal Lotta Volkova.
“It’s inappropriate, and Jean Paul Gaultier should be aware of this,” says some comments.
Gaultier, 70, has designed clothing for celebrities such as Nicole Kidman, Cate Blanchett, Lady Gaga, and Rihanna.
Some customers took to Facebook to criticise the dress.
“This is not becoming at all, and I would even say inappropriate,” one person said.
“How about one with a man?” they suggested.
Bella Hadid, the American model, walked the ramp in a see-through mesh white gown with black lace embellishment.
This happened on the Runway at Jean Paul Gaultier’s Final Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week Show in Paris, Autumn Winter 2020.
Bella Hadid did stun fans when she stepped out on the catwalk wearing the gown which featured strategically placed black embroidery to cover the supermodel’s modesty.
But the naked dress performance beats Hadid’s more modest gown.
