This summer, it's all about going nude -- we're not talking about wearing nothing, but rather the trend in skin-coloured clothing and its ever-increasing presence in our wardrobe (and on the frocks celebs are donning).
Singer Jordin Sparks recently rocked the Billboard Music Awards red carpet in a nude-coloured lace dress by Diane von Furstenberg. And because it's a wee bit out of our budget, we wanted to recreate her style for a little less. It's the perfect outfit to wear out on a patio or for a summer's night out.
Check out our picks on how to achieve Jordin Sparks's look on a budget:
