Celebrity nipples are errywhere these days. From Anne Hathaway’s Oscar dress to Miley’s iHeart Radio “outfit.” I use quotations because she looked like a flying monkey from the Wizard of Oz. We all have bad fashions days, y’all.
Ah, the elusive nipple. Why do men have them? Why do some men have three of them? So many mysteries. I’m not exactly sure why humans have dark circles around their boobs. Is it bullseye for babies? A target to stab our annoying boyfriends? Nope. A nipple is a modern fashion accessory.
Since 2012 sheer tops, nipples and nakedness have become a staple on high fashion runways. From John Galliano to Marc Jacobs no one is above sending their models down the runway with nipples veiled under sheer fabric. Celebrities wear couture and high fashion, thus it is only natural they feel compelled to start bearing boobies for the sake of style and beauty.
Look, if my boobs were as perky as Rihanna or Lady Gaga’s I might walk around braless too. Hell, if I had the courage of Britney Spears I might sag around town, even. Sadly I am but a mere mortal. I am obviously not body shaming these lovely ladies, I think it’s great they feel comfortable enough in their bodies to go braless and sheer or even to rock a pastey.
My only question is would you? Or have you seen a regular muggle person rocking the sheer look? Is this really “ready-to-wear” fashion or is this the kind of thing reserved for the stage and red carpet? I can’t imagine strolling into work with my nips out. When I receive weird looks from people I’d have to explain that it’s perfectly legal for women to be topless in New York and then act all offended when they are ogling my nips. It seems like a great big to-do to be fashionably nipple-y. Imma just leave this nipple trend to the celebs and models.
