Happy birthday, beautiful Carmen Electra! The model and "Baywatch" actress turns 50 on April 20, 2022, and to celebrate, Wonderwall.com is taking a look back at her hottest retro fashion. First up is this illusion dress… In one of her prettiest, chicest moments of all time, Carmen attended the MTV Movie Awards in Los Angeles in May 1998 in a white silk bandeau gown secured by a transparent strap that showed off her bronzed body beautifully. In April 2022, Kim Kardashian wore a copy of the dress (see it here), which Carmen called "flattering" and "cool."
