She was naked underneath the sheer gown with a nude thong and powder pink fur wrap keeping her somewhat covered. After the awards she posted a celebratory video of herself twerking in the see-through dress on her very new @bahdgalriri Instagram account. It’s circling the Internet like wildfire and yes, we can understand why.
