Tom Daley, who won a gold medal in diving at the 2020 Olympics, wore a see-through Tran Hung creation while out with friends in the U.K. this week.

December 11 Instagram posts by the hunky Brit all but revealed his naked chest thanks to the sensual diamond-embroidered sheer shirt by one of Vietnam’s top fashion designers.

The shirt is part of Tran Hung's Spring-Summer 2023 collection, which debuted at London Fashion Week in September. It took the designer three days to embroider crystals on the tulle fabric garment, reports said.

Hung said he’d been asked by Daley’s stylist to make two shirts for the swimmer. The other deep navy creation was a similar thin sheer design.

"Tom really likes the shirts and thinks they fit him really well," Hung said.

Born in 1994, Daley won his first gold medal in the men's 10m synchro-diving at the 2020 summer Olympics in Tokyo.

He’s also become popular on social media for being a prolific knitter.

Tom is currently married to screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, who won Best Original Screenplay for "Milkin" at the 2008 Oscars. They have a three-year-old son.

Besides Daley, Tran Hung creations have also been worn by roughly 100 U.K. celebrities this year alone, including singer Olly Murs and model Roxy Horner.

Hung, 34, has launched four collections over the last four years, and also participated in designing for children at Vietnam Junior Fashion Week 2019.

The designer often embroiders by hand on silk, organza and other fabrics. His romantic designs are known for fusing Asian and European influences.

His ensembles have been featured in prominent fashion magazines Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, and Elle.

Hung has also made a name for himself by collaborating with TV stars like AJ Odudu, Vick Hope and Anita Rani.
