Bra-Less Is Flawless: 16 Celebrities Who Proudly Free The Nipple
Ever looked forward to getting home just so you can finally take your bra off? Loathe the feeling of bra straps digging into your shoulders and restricting the air from your lady parts? Same sis… Same. Women far and wide are freeing the nipple. For some, it’s a political statement promoting gender equality, for others, it’s just a simple hatred for bras that so many of us share. According to freethenipple.com, “Free The Nipple is a global campaign of change, focused on the equality, empowerment, and freedom of all human beings. Free The Nipple has become a premier voice for gender equality, utilizing all forms of modern media, to raise awareness and effect change on various social issues, and injustices.”
Celebs, in particular, love living by the motto “Bra-less is flawless,” and we definitely agree! Whether they’re standing with the mission of Free The Nipple, or just serving us lewks, we’re here for every last bit of it.
1. Chelsea Handler
So.. Handler and Instagram have a love/hate relationship. The Hollywood funny woman has posted numerous photos to her profile in an effort to stand up for gender equality. However, IG wasn’t too big of fans of the pics. They were removed, but not without some pushback from Handler and other celebs who stan for the boob action!
2. Zoe Saldana
The Star Trek star is often seen strutting her stuff bra-free and has admitted to occasionally flashing her co-stars just cuz. She doesn’t freak over wardrobe malfunctions, either. This babe is super comfortable in the skin she’s in. To that, we give her some major props.
The British fashionista supported the Free The Nipple movement in a different way than most. She donned a t-shirt embellished with a photo of some breasts — some pretty phenomenal breasts if we must say so ourselves, TBH — and grabbed those babies like they were her own. Of course, Instagram removed the photo. Literally, WTF! Booo.
4. Grace Jones
Grace Jones is a legend. Period. Aside from being a fashion icon, Jones ~graced~ us with some true hits. In 1982, she released her single “Nipple to the Bottle,” and has been a pioneer for women advocating for sexual rights and freedoms all throughout her career. In 2015, at the age of 67, and at a Barnes & Noble book signing, she gave the crowd a show by baring her nipples to all. ICONIC.
5. Zoe Kravitz
The starlet has revealed her nips on red carpets, on magazine covers, and at the chicest parties. The Mad Max and Divergent star serves us flawless flower child vibes whether it's with her perfect dreads, shaved head, or naturally glowing skin. Can I look like that topless? Please?
6. Chrissy Teigen
Our favorite funny mama freed the nipple via Instagram back in 2015, causing quite the stir. When the social media app deleted the photo and released their “No Nipple Policy,” many were angered, including Teigen. In typical comedic fashion, she took to Twitter and said: “the nipple has been temporarily silenced but she will be back, oh yes, she will be back.” WE’RE HERE FOR IT!
7. Kendall Jenner
Damn, nipple's never looked more high fashion than it did during this fashion show. Seriously it's like a statement accessory! The Kardashian-Jenner girl has never been shy about letting the nip show. She even let Kylie post a Snapchat zooming in on Kendall's new nipple piercing at Coachella in 2016! Now that's bold.
8. Kim Kardashian
The reality star has never been afraid to show off her bod. I mean, who would be with curves like that?! She’s become known for her see-through tanks that are a staple of her wardrobe. How many women do you know that can make nips look so high-fashion? Keep going Kim, you continue to show us how versatile the boobies really are.
9. Naomi Campbell
This outspoken, runway royalty, like many others, had her Free The Nipple photos deleted by Instagram. But in the land of screenshots, those photos haven’t gone far. In a way only Campbell could, the photo was that of a true OG supermodel, flawless and fierce!
10. Lena Dunham
The Girls funny woman maneuvered around Instagram’s strict nudity policy when she posted her photo in support of Free The Nipple wearing nipple pasties. The amazingly talented director, writer, actress, and producer continues to show us just how important girl power is.
11. Lady Gaga
Gaga is not modest when it comes to covering those tatas up. The “Born This Way” songstress has been spotted out and about several times wearing risque outfits that just barely cover her nipples. Keep doing you, baby. You're fabulous.
12. Selena Gomez
Looks like this Disney girl took a page from Miley Cyrus‘ book. One of our fave teen stars is all grown up, and she’s making sure everybody knows it! SelGo makes the bra-less lewk look truly look effortless. The “Fetish” singer/The Weeknd‘s main squeeze loves a little breeze to the boobs and so do we!
It’s no secret that RiRi isn’t a fan of the bras. She’s posted topless photos on her social media and loves a good sheer dress/shirt! It’s safe to say that she serves us ‘Wild Thoughts' all the time! Her many posts got her temporarily suspended from Instagram, but you know they couldn’t keep Bad Gal Riri away from us too long! Whether she's baring all on the red carpet or lettin' them hang free during a sports game, Rihanna knows that when it comes to the tatas, there's nothing to be shameful of!
14. Gigi Hadid
Whether on the catwalk or on a casual walk down the street, we’re no strangers to the nipples of Gigi Hadid… both purposeful displays and accidental ones. Last year at Milan Fashion Week, the model had a wardrobe malfunction while walking in the Versace Show. Like a pro, Hadid continued to work the runway with her nip displayed for all. Can you say, “mood”?
15. Miley Cyrus
Miley Cyrus… Need I really say more? She’s a vet to this freeing of the nipple. In fact, she's somewhat known for showing her bare boobs all the time. During her interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live, she told Kimmel, “My dad’s cool because I’m sure he’d rather me not have my tits out all the time, but he’d rather me have my tits out and be a good person than have a shirt on and be a bitch.” We agree, Billy Ray, we agree!
16. Amber Rose
The SlutWalk founder has long been an advocate for women’s rights. She also doesn’t discriminate against which body parts should be socially acceptable to show. Earlier this year Muva posted a photo with her all other lady parts on full display, too. Now that’s what we call, one dedicated activist.
