Sadly (or maybe not, depending on who you ask), the internet is full of celebrity “nip-slips,” the term used to describe the event in which a female star accidentally shows the socially forbidden part of her breast, the nipple. Actually, it is up for debate just how “accidental” these instances really are; some say celebs do it on purpose for publicity. I am sure that while some do (and it definitely works!), most are an honest accident. Ladies who are blessed in the chest are more prone to these kinds of things of course, though many smaller-breasted stars have also had this problem. But “blessed” or not, many have no qualms about showing the world their assets.
Hey, it happens to the best of us. But unlike Hollywood celebs, most of us are not in the spotlight 24/7, or every time we leave the privacy of our homes. Usually these indiscretions happen when the ladies don a super low-cut top. Like, super-duper low. So low they are probably using those sticky things to keep everything in place. But alas, as we know, sticky things do not always a wardrobe malfunction prevent.
Prepare to learn which famous stars are known for nip-slipping (and where; it seems as if London, LAX Airport, and New York are the breeding grounds for this particular faux pas). There are tons of one-timers – people like Tina Fey, Brittany Gastineau, Gigi Hadid, and Victoria Beckham (and I could go on and on). But the following 15 beauties are some serious nip-slipping repeat offenders!
15. Eva Longoria – Bikini Babe
The sexy Latina star of Desperate Housewives fame has had her share of nip-slips. The most famous was probably during her 2013 vacation in Puerto Rico, when her bright orange bikini top slipped down. Oops! Unfortunately for her, the paparazzi were right there to snap a million photos, and she was exposed. Now the photos run rampant on the internet, where they will undoubtedly live forever.
Eva Longoria has also been caught “slipping,” as we’ll call it, at a 2013 Golden Globes after-party (2013 really was not her year!) and she has also been spotted several times sans panties! That’s right, your favorite little lady of Wisteria Lane went commando to the Cannes Film Festival in – surprise, surprise- 2013, and she is suspected to do so regularly.
14. Khloe Kardashian – Unabashedly Out There
Where do I even begin with this girl? First, according to the middle sister of Kardashian/Jenner royalty, she gives “zero f***’s” if it happens, because ‘we all have nipples.'” Very true. However, most of us at least try to keep them covered. But not Khloe Kardashian! She loves to flaunt what the good Lord gave her, whether in photo shoots or lounging around on a beach. She wears provocative clothing, and poses scandalously, baring it all proudly, like she does in the above photo shoot (yes, she is posing nude, but still manages to be scandalous when the photographer captures her nip in a few shots in the set).
Some (but only some, mind you) of her nip-slips occurred while she was doing an interview for FOX News, on a family vacation in St. Bart’s, and while wearing a lacy corset celebrating sister Kendall Jenner’s birthday party. I find myself wondering of some of her outfits: how one would not have some kind of slip – or all-out spill?
13. Kourtney Kardashian – Sexy Selfie
The eldest of the infamous siblings, Kourtney Kardashian is known to be slightly more reserved than her sisters. This is probably a good thing, as she is a mom of three, but that does not mean she does not know how to dress sexy. And as we know, dressing sexy means you are at risk for a wardrobe malfunction of one kind or another. Kourt is no stranger to low-cut tops, and even posted a racy selfie to Instagram, captioned “Goodnight..” In this super sexy pic, she is wearing lacy lingerie and her nipple is clearly visible, stealing the spotlight! It was an accident (or so she claims- maybe it was really a publicity stunt?), but her ex and baby daddy Scott Disick publicly commented with his approval.
Besides posing completely nude while pregnant (following a long line of celebrities to do so in recent years) for DuJour Magazine, Kourtney also had a slip at Kendall’s birthday party, the same party as Khloe’s slip. That must have been some party!
12. Beyonce – Suspicious Slips
Beyonce is, at this point, notorious for nip-slipping. The girl has flashed it everywhere, it seems! A few examples include the halftime show of Super Bowl XLVII, at the Global Citizen Festival in 2014, during the 2014 Grammy’s, at the beach, and at the Tidal Concert in 2015. She was once filmed scolding her stylist, telling her to “stop it!” when the woman was attempting to fix an extremely low-cut outfit for Beyonce just before a performance.
Given the amount of slip-ups the singer has had, and the fact that there is proof of her not doing everything she could to avoid one (you could even say she was pushing away help to avoid one), I am going to have to go ahead and assume Beyonce Knowles is one of those celebs who may very well want the publicity of a so-called “slip”. Oh, and she seems kind of bitchy for snapping at her stylist who was only trying to help. Just sayin’…
11. Bai Ling – Slip-Ups Galore!
Sexy Chinese-American actress Bai Ling is no stranger to an occasional (or frequent…) slip of the nip. Her indiscretions include: while shopping with her sister in West Hollywood; while heading to a party in Los Angeles; at the Arclight Theater also in Los Angeles; in a see-through dress celebrating her 49th birthday (how on earth is she 49?); at the Hollywood Film Festival Opening Night Gala in L.A.; at the Toca Maderala Grand Opening in West Hollywood; wearing another see-through dress to a Valentine’s Day party; at a nail salon in Beverly Hills; at Sue Wong’s 2015 New Year’s Eve Party; and when she did the Ice Bucket Challenge. Whew! And this is not even including all the times she purposely exposed herself…
10. Kris Jenner – Wonder Granny
Not shockingly, Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner has earned her spot on this list (like mother, like daughters, right?) She does not let her age of 60-years-young, or the fact that she is a grandmother of five, restrict her often-plunging necklines. Quite the opposite, in fact. Like her daughter Kourtney, Kris posted her own nip-slip pic to Instagram, though she is thought to have done it intentionally. And in 2012 Kris suffered a slip while in her Halloween costume, but shared it anyway (and daughter Khloe retweeted it). Why not? They have never been a family that is shy talking about their private parts, after all. However, many harsh critics had plenty of cruel words for poor Kris’ Halloween selfie.
More recently, the “momager” attempted to upstage her ex-husband Bruce Jenner (now known as Caitlyn Jenner) by showing a bit too much in Paris last summer. Some say it was her way of trying to outshine Caitlyn’s Vanity Fair debut, which would make sense, and is a very “Kris” thing to do.
9. Miley Cyrus – Basically a Nudist
No surprise here! The whole world has been inundated with the site of Miley Cyrus’ naked body here and there and everywhere. She even shops nude, as seen when she went about in SoHo one day wearing nothing on top but a white fishnet “shirt” This can hardly be called a slip when it is so blatantly intended. But still, even when it is not intended, Miley cannot seem to keep her girls in check (I am guessing she is one of the ones who just does it for publicity, too- either that, or she truly just does not care at all).
She too had a slip posted on Instagram, several very obvious bra-less and panty-less excursions, and countless instances where she just plain didn’t give a hoot that she was out in public naked. I kind of admire her, actually. To have that kind of confidence, or at the very least that level of nonchalance, is rare. Miley truly embodies the “f*** it” attitude.
8. Rihanna – No Shame!
Rihanna’s ta-ta’s have been seen by the public many times over. For example, when she wore translucent clothing in her “Needed Me” and “Kiss It Better” music videos, and when she (quite frequently) has worn see-through clothing to events like the MusiCares Person of the Year in L.A.
At LAX Airport and while out and about in New York City (I told you – L.A. and New York!) are two more instances we were graced with the image of her boobs slipping out more than they were supposed to. Then there was the time she went out in Santa Monica, was at an after-party in New York, when she was walking the beach… The singer is not shy, and though she does not look too happy in the photo above, she generally seems to take things a step further than simply having a healthy confidence in her body; like so many others on this list, she has no shame when it comes to being in the spotlight nude! Hey, if ya got it, flaunt it!
7. Jennifer Lopez – Longest Nip-Slip of Mankind
Screen Queen Jennifer Lopez, who began her career as Jenny From the Block, is known for many things: her incredible vocal talents, many films, and being a judge on American Idol. But now she has another title, that of having the “Longest Nip Slip of Mankind”, according to magazine Marie Claire. Poor J.Lo! The magazine labels the “situation” this way because at the 2015 Golden Globes her dress was… questionable. “Twitterverse” was torn on whether it was technically a nip slip or not, but Marie Claire seems certain.
Less questionable instances of Jennifer’s, though, are when she bent down wearing a hippie dress in 2011 and her boob just fell right on out (and her face says it all!), during the 2012 Academy Awards, and while performing at her Dance Again World Tour in London in 2002. Most of the time, it seems to be her stage outfits that are to blame.
6. Kim Kardashian – Ridiculous as Usual
The last Kardashian (though I am sure the younger but equally scandalous Jenner sisters from the same family would qualify) on this list is the infamous Kim Kardashian. Most recently Kim was seen stepping out in Paris with hubby Kanye West in a see-through pink ensemble that caused more of a distraction than her newly platinum blonde hair! Translation: her nips slipped!
Other instances of her slipping up are as pictured above on Instagram (not shocking at this point), traveling at LAX (I am beginning to think if you want to see celeb nips, just head on over to LAX), and while shopping, or just out and about in general. It happens. But Kim took it a step further than just the nip- she posted a fully nude pic to Instagram! Beat that, other Kardashians!
5. Nicki Minaj – Repeated Talk Show Flukes
One time, rapper Nicki Minaj popped out of her outfit right on stage while giving a concert in Vancouver! That is almost worse than getting caught on camera like usual, because at least with the paparazzi, while you know everyone will still see it, you won’t be around when they do. But poor Nicki flashed the packed Canadian venue back in 2015 when her sparkly gold bra revealed her nipple and she tried (unsuccessfully) to hide it. But she kept on going anyway (love the good attitude!), and anyway, she is accustomed to this sort of thing happening to her.
In 2011, she experienced a slip on Good Morning America, and then (while discussing her past wardrobe malfunctions, including nip slips!) it happened again! WTF? That is almost obviously on purpose, but I am hesitant to think so, because Nicki spoke about how hard it was for her to deal with. She also slipped on Ellen and on SNL. What is it with this girl and her talk shows? Maybe she should consider not wearing super-scandalous clothing while being interviewed… just a thought.
4. Lady Gaga – Baby, She Was Born That Way!
Pop star Lady Gaga is a regular user of pasties and stickies and anything that could possibly be utilized to keep her ladies in place. She is also someone who regularly does not seem to be able to. It seems like an obvious common denominator to me – that many of these women should steer clear of their ridiculous stage outfits, and also bouncing around in front of thousands of people wearing said ridiculous get-ups. But alas, I realize we cannot all be blessed with the gift of logic. Lady Gaga, like many others on this list, was blessed only in the chest (well, OK, and vocally). But logic eludes her, apparently.
Her less-than-secure chest has been seen at Radio City Music Hall, in the Bahamas, in London, after removing her bra while eating pizza in New York, and while filming American Horror Story. Hey, she was born that way!
3. Lindsay Lohan – Exposed Diva
Also not shockingly on this list is none other than drama queen starlet Lindsay Lohan. She went from adorable child star to disturbed young adult over the course of nearly 20 years now, and while recently she has managed to stay (relatively) out of the limelight, still her nip-slips will live on forever; that’s the beauty of the internet. I think with good ol’ LiLo, there is nothing to do but get right on with it and list her most notable slips: the Asian Awards in London, at the Gareth Pugh Show during London Fashion Week, while swimming in Mykonos, Greece, on the set of Liz and Dick, (shown above) and during various shopping excursions (why are all these women shopping half-naked, anyway?)
2. Madonna – A Very Bad Influence
She is a legend in the world of music, and she is a legend in the world of accidental nudity. Oh, Madonna– always keeping things interesting. From the Costume Institute Gala in New York City to the 2012 concert in Istanbul, Turkey where she purposely pulled out her right nipple to Paris where she exposed the left one. Ok, so maybe “accidental” nudity is a stretch, but at least she does not try to hide her intentions behind a fake nip-slip.
But Madonna is also influencing others to follow in her footsteps… after leaving a party of Madonna’s in 2015, Naomi Campbell suffered a nip-slip of her own, and perhaps most dumbfounding of all is the incident in Brisbane, Australia in March of this year. During a concert there, the pop icon pulled 17-year old fan Josephine Georgiou on stage, and tugged at her strapless corset top, revealing her breast to the audience. Madonna made light of it and joked, and luckily for her, the fan called it the “best moment” of her life. Seems to me Madonna could have easily been sued for sexual harassment of a minor!
1. Rita Ora – She Gets Around!
Rounding out our list today is singer Rita Ora, who has plenty to offer us in terms of nip-slips. This girl is one of the best examples of this type of wardrobe malfunction! Many times her photos just show hard nipples, or “pokies”, as they are called, through various skimpy outfits and bikinis. And she has posed nude for photo shoots, naturally (no pun intended). But she has also had actual slip-ups, as well, and plenty of them to boot.
Outside of China Tang Restaurant in London is one place she was exposed, quite recently in December 2015. Also in 2015, at the Bambi Awards in Berlin, her nip slipped. Other instances are when she was leaving a Chris Brown concert in Anaheim, California, while performing at the El Rey Theater in L.A., on a yacht in Ibiza, at the Chanel Fashion Show in Paris, and at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas, among many others. This girl and her nipples get around!
