Once upon a time in Hollywood, nip slips were frowned upon – something that celebrities feared. To prep for award shows and events, stars and their stylists would use bandaids, pasties, camisoles, even duct tape (um, ouch) to make sure that the nipples remained hidden. But on occasion, the stick-ons and tape would fail, leaving nipples exposed to the spotlight and cameras. Chaos would often ensue — because, after all, how dare this body part be visible to the world, right?

Fast forward to today, when fashion icons are putting their nipples on display with intention. In fact, nipples are now considered one of the hottest red carpet accessories (we're looking at you, Kendall Jenner). With hashtags like #freethenips and #freethenipple, a braless moment or a tasteful nude is now considered a body-positive statement. After all, there are so many different types of breasts (9 types of boob shapes, actually) and nipples. Each person might have a different size, shape, or areola color, which isn’t something to be embarrassed about. In fact, your nipples are something to be proud of, because they’re part of YOU!

So to move us one step further toward all nipples being treated equally, we have put together the most shocking and not-so-shocking celebrity nip slips on the internet. From sheer red carpet dresses meant to be worn sans-bra to sheer tops to steamy IG selfies, there’s a lot of nothing-to-be-ashamed-of here. Enjoy!

Charli XCX hit the Brit Awards in a stunning halter-neck, see-through dress and paired it with a matching white thong. Although she was nominated for the Best British Pop/R&B Act Award and didn't win, the singer and songwriter left the award ceremony feeling victorious. She shared several snaps of her look on Instagram with the caption, "Real Winner."

That lace! That belt! Olivia Wilde was all smiles at the 2022 People's Choice Awards weeks after breaking up with Harry Styles. The Don't Worry Darling director and actress went sans-bra to let her Dior gown shine exactly the way it went down the runway. If her sheer black frock was intended to be a revenge dress, we'd say she totally nailed it.

Bella Hadid

Alright, this isn't a nip slip, but it *is* an honorable mention because we're just so impressed that there wasn'a nip slip...considering the fact that Bella is wearing a necklace as a shirt.


We aspire to have vibes that are as chill as Rihanna in this picture — skincare applied, bucket hat over our eyes, kicking back and completely unbothered.
