There has always been a stigma surrounding women’s nipples. Women are often asked to cover up, because they are seen as obscene and lewd. However, many female celebrities have been trying to free the nipple for a long, long time. Yes, I’m sure you can’t wait to take a look at the 6 iconic celebs who freed the nipple, but let’s first understand how the campaign, Free the Nipple, came about! It was started by filmmaker Lina Esco in 2012, when she made a film with the same title surrounding the message of equality. The #FreeTheNipple hashtag quickly spread across the internet, spawning the Free the Nipple movement we see today. Why is it acceptable for men to go topless, yet women’s breasts are sexualized? This movement has certainly garnered a huge amount of support over the years, and many celebs have contributed to this campaign of gender equality. Here are 6 celebs who have done much to #FreeTheNipple!
Kylie recently shared a photo of her wearing a bikini top with some nipple prints on it, with the caption “free the nipple”! She’s already had numerous free the nipple moments throughout the years, so it’s no surprise that she would drop another iconic nipple moment on her IG. Were some people offended? Of course. But does she care? Hell nah!
It’s no surprise that the good girl gone bad freed the nipple on countless occasions throughout the years. She posted this photo on her IG in 2019, with the caption “The only thing the ‘new me’ loves more than a mirror selfie is a self-timed one. PS this is getting removed soon! I’ve been warned by the gram gods!”. What do we think? To quote a fan’s response on Twitter, “No one does nipples like Miley does nipples!”
Kendall Jenner is definitely a pro when it comes to putting the nipples on display. See-through tops are basically her go-to outfit now! And she’s no stranger to going braless in her stylish model-off-duty lewks! On her exclusive website and app, she stated that she’s “cool with her breasts” and she doesn’t mind going braless. We think we’re cool with it too!
Bella Hadid went completely nude for her French Vogue cover which she posted on her Instagram, with the #FreeTheNipple and #LoveYourBody hashtag, embracing self-love and the beauty of nudity! Like Kendall Jenner, she’s all for the braless look, as can be seen in many of her sheer red carpet looks!
There’s no slut-shaming around here, folks. Amber Rose showed her support in the #FreeTheNipple movement by posting this stunning photo on Twitter with the campaign hashtag, as well as the #AmberRoseSlutWalk2016 hashtag. Plus, during Kim Kardashian’s naked selfie controversy, she wrote in her Instagram post, “If a grown mother of 2 is comfortable with her body and wants to show it off, that’s none of your business or anyone else’s”. PERIODT!
The supermodel almost broke the internet when she posted a topless photo of herself on Instagram to promote her upcoming book with Taschen. The post was accompanied by the #freethenipple hashtag. What else can we say? The queen has spoken, it’s time to free those nips!
