Anthony Vaccarello Freed the Nipple…Then Bedazzled It at Saint Laurent

The iconic house hosts a coming-out party in Paris

Anthony Vaccarello made his first sartorial statement at Saint Laurent tonight by demonstrating his ongoing support for the free the nipple movement (as made popular by longtime muse Anja Rubik, who proudly bared both breasts on the runway from beneath a sheer black blouse sprinkled with scintillating stones). In addition to plunging necklines, peekaboo lace numbers, and paper-thin white tanks was Binx Walton’s bold, bedazzled nipple. Not your average pasty purchased at a sex shop in Pigalle, this dazzling display called to mind the diamanté wings makeup artist Tom Pecheux dreamed up for the designer’s Fall 2016 romp. While we’ve seen glitter pop up in a few unexpected places this season—including models’ lips (DKNY, Gareth Pugh, and Fendi), foreheads, and ears (Giamba)—perhaps none more unconventional and head-turning than Walton’s crystal-encrusted nip. Will the edgy embellishment come to market alongside the asymmetric leather dress it was paired with on the catwalk? Time shall tell. In the meantime, break out a single boob and strategically slap on a few sparkles with some lash glue. Then, flash your creativity by fearlessly freeing the nipple.
