What is a sexy dress? For us, it’s a dress that flatters the body’s best parts, allows the wearer to confidently flaunt her assets, and tastefully shows some skin yet leaves something to the imagination.

The following dresses not only embody that definition but also blow other dresses out of the water when it comes to transforming their wearers into beautiful bombshells. Scroll down for our 13 sexiest dresses of 2013.

1. Kim Kardashian in Julien Macdonald

Starting off this list is Kim Kardashian who kicked off the new year in a strategically appliqued Julien Macdonald dress.

This also happened to be the first outfit she wore after she announced that she was pregnant, which just goes to show that maternity wear can be sexy, too.

2. Jennifer Lopez in Anthony Vaccarello

We had a hard time choosing between Jennifer Lopez’s Anthony Vaccarello spring 2013 dress and her sheer-paneled white Kaufman Franco dress, but this leggy look won in the end. All you gotta do is look at the picture below to see why.

3. Katy Perry in Gucci

Katy Perry’s chesty look may not have been the way Gucci intended their pale Jade light sable gown with a hand-embroidered floral neckline to be worn, but, as the old saying goes, “if you’ve got it, flaunt it.”

6. Dita Von Teese in 3D-Printed Dress

There is something so dangerously sexy in the combination of burlesque performer Dita Von Teese and cutting-edge technology. In case anyone’s wondering, yes, this dress really did come out of a printer.

7. Gwyneth Paltrow in Antonio Berardi

All that held Gwyneth Paltrow up in her Antonio Berardi Fall 2013 dress were the effects of her strict diet and rigorous exercise regimen.

8. Miley Cyrus in Versace

Amidst all the scandalous outfits Miley Cyrus wore this year, there were times when she did get it right. This harness-strapped Versace dress had that rebellious look and shock factor that Miley wanted but was also still tasteful at the same time.

9. Selena Gomez in Versace

For us, Selena Gomez’s intentionally bra-revealing Atelier Versace fall 2013 dress is the sexiest dress she has ever worn. All traces of her baby face gone.

10. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in Versus

At the height of the Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Jason Statham breakup rumors, Rosie stepped out looking revengefully beautiful in a slashed Versus dress. The rumors turned out to be false, but Rosie remained to be truly sexy.

11. Blake Lively in Gucci

Since getting hitched to Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively has largely remained under the radar. Yet the one time Blake stepped out in a mustard leather dress to attend a Gucci fashion show, it was already enough to guarantee herself a spot on our sexiest dress list.

12. Jaimie Alexander in Azzaro

We deem Jaimie Alexander’s Azzaro spring 2014 gown as the most dangerous and most daring dress of 2013.

13. Rihanna in Jean Paul Gaultier

They say you should only flaunt one part of your body when going sexy, but Rihanna disproved that rule in a Jean Paul Gaultier gown consisting of a bra top and a sheer curtain skirt.

We mostly give credit not to the dress, actually, but to Rihanna’s massive confidence and give-no-f–s attitude.
