One of the reasons Kate Moss has earned fashion icon status is her ability to pull off designs that other women would look downright foolish wearing.

She displayed some of that skill (among other things) in a super sheer Dior gown paired with a low-slung, bondage-inspired belt at the British Fashion Awards in London, where the often controversial model won the 'London 25' award.

The honor pegs her as one of the 25 most influential Brits in the fashion industry (models Naomi Campbell and Erin O'Connor also made the cut).

London, long known as a capital for more rebellious fashion, was probably a fitting place for Moss' chiffon gown -- designed by fellow Brit John Galliano for Dior -- which had cascading ruffles down the front, polka dots scattered about and a sheer panel on the right side, showing off some major side boob action.

Good thing those ruffles and polka dots were strategically placed.

So, did Moss pull off the risque look or should she have invested in a slip? Leave a comment.

But Moss was lucky, her moves weren't the most shocking of the night. Fellow model Karen Elson took the plunge, literally, when she fell off the stage in an Alexander McQueen fishtail gown. Ouch.
