The 11 Greatest Moments in Underwear History

Aug 5 2016 - 2:12pm

What's better than really hot stars in gorgeous clothing? How about really hot stars in various stages of undress? And though our usual topic of conversation centers around fashion of a higher brow, we have absolutely no problem digging into the archives in honor of perhaps the most epic holiday known to man: National Underwear Day [1]. Last we checked, there's really no appropriate card in the Hallmark aisle, so we decided to say "Have a great day" in photos and GIFs. Enjoy!

Rihanna at the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards

While it first appeared that Rihanna's CFDA dress [5] was entirely sheer, the icon kept her glittering Adam Selman look from being entirely NSFW with a modest (though backless) pair of underwear.

Chrissy Teigen at the 2014 Gordon Parks Awards Dinner and Auction

Chrissy Teigen went the opposite route of Rihanna [6], in that her exposed underthings were the most surprising element of her Vera Wang red carpet ensemble.

Tom Cruise in Risky Business

We couldn't just "take those old records off the shelf" in any old outfit once we saw Tom Cruise [7] slide across the hardwood floors in his tighty whiteys in 1983's Risky Business.

Sarah Jessica Parker in Sex and the City

Carrie Bradshaw may have been horrified by the jeweled underwear a fictionalized Dolce & Gabbana put her in for her runway debut, but we definitely "likey."

Mark Wahlberg in a 1991 Calvin Klein Ad

Back before he was a respected producer and Academy Award-nominated actor, he was just Marky Mark, in a pair of Calvins. And we were perfectly OK with that.

Candice Swanepoel at the 2013 Victoria's Secret Runway Show

Candice is truly a sight to see on the runway, but it's hard to focus on anything but the lingerie when the item in question is a $10 million — yes $10 million — bra. Though it wasn't the most expensive fantasy bra to date [12], it was certainly one of the most impressive (and we can attest to that, firsthand [13]).

Cameron Diaz in Charlie's Angels

If we looked as good as Cameron did in her adorable underoos, we'd be dancing too.

David Beckham in a 2013 H&M Ad

Of course none of those moments will stick in your mind once you watch David Beckham [16] emerging from a pool in his skivvies, over, and over again. You are so very welcome.
