Bev, this dress is amazing!! Fantastic piece of art!
I do support sheer dresses with several "but"
- a body shape in a good condition, that is not even slightly, but a lot, is seen through the dress
- there are some elements under a dress or may be from above, so there is no place for a totally nacked delights in the intimate parts of a woman's body.
In regarding with the event to wear it, well, a long one - for a specail occasions, as big official parties (birthdays, weddings, presentations), ceremonies - not only a red carpet. But if it's a midi one or knee-length you could bravely wear it for a lunch/branch with girls or even a date with some jacket, cardigan, for example.
In addition to your photos i've just found some of our Lena Perminova in super amazing dresses at celebrity events:
