As we gear up for Shark Week 2017, fans are already buzzing about the new Sharknado, even though the TV movie — which is the latest installment in the unexpected disaster film franchise — doesn't premiere until Aug. 6. There's already one major question on every dedicated viewer's mind: What happened to star Tara Reid?
Well, the controversial celeb stepped out at an art event on Thursday, July 27, in a sheer, chainmail dress that exposed her bare breasts and nude-colored thong. To maintain some modesty, Tara did wear nipple pads underneath the bizarre ensemble.

The actress will reprise her role as April Wexler in Sharknado 5: Global Swarming (we're loving that title), and recently revealed how she got involved with the initial project, which now has a cult following. "Well, I was offered two movies. One was called Dark Skies and I remember thinking I’d take that one because Sharknado sounded so bad," she recalled to Geeks of Doom.

"Then I went out with my friends and I told them about the options... and they started laughing hysterically saying, ‘Tara you have to take this movie!’ Everyone said the same thing, ‘You have to take it. It’s so funny, it’s so ridiculous,'" she continued. "So I called my agent and I told him I’d do it. I kept thinking, ‘Oh my god, you gotta be kidding me, now I’m going to put this horrible thing on my resume.’ But then as I read it I started to think, this can work, and here we are."
The 41-year-old recently stepped out at the Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets premiere in Hollywood, where she once again made headlines for her extremely skinny frame. But Tara is used to criticism over her weight.
"I'm just a small-boned girl. I eat, I eat, I eat," she has said. "Some people eat too much, [and] you yell at them that they're fat. You want to get mad at me because I'm skinny? Great, get mad at me. I am what I am.”
Sharknado 5: Global Swarming airs on Aug. 6 at 8 p.m. on Syfy.
