Cover your eyes, kids! 

Some evening gowns, like the one Vivica A. Fox selected to host the 2015 Femmy Awards on Tuesday, Feb. 3, in New York City, call for, ahem, more courage than coverage.

The Celebrity Apprentice contestant, 50, hit the red carpet at the gala event wearing a gold sequin and mesh gown sans bra — giving all the guests quite a view.

 

The risqué garment featured sequin embroidery on the bodice to shield the star from fully exposing her nipples. Ironically enough, the gala was hosted by the Underfashion Club, a not-for-profit intimate apparel industry organization, established in 1958.

Fox was totally in love with her look and gave a shout-out to her glam squad via Instagram. "Boom!

Hair n Makeup by @daryonhaylock #TeamFox #TeamVivica #TreasureLife," she captioned a pic showing off her dress.
