Nipples are the hottest accessory at the 2024 Met Gala

While the pantsless trend is still popular in the fashion world, guests at the 2024 Met Gala showed off their skin in different ways. The red carpet is awash with see-through designs, further reinforcing the idea of ​​letting nipples (real or fake) fly free.

On Monday, we saw literal and figurative adaptations of the trend, coming in the form of open braided lace and trompe l'oeil prints, a less obvious take on the trend. Tapered corsets are another way attendees (read: Kylie Jenner and Paloma Elsesser) are accentuating nipples, or the illusion of nipples, at fashion's biggest night.

Of course, the topless trend is nothing new. Designers have been sending scantily clad models down the catwalk without bras for decades. The Yves Saint Laurent Museum in Paris even hosted an exhibition called "Transparencies," which featured a series of ultra-transparent works. All of which is to say: It makes sense that various celebrities would rock similar looks in order to celebrate preserving fashion's most memorable moments.

And take what they do...move on for all the nipple-driven looks on the Met Ball steps and after parties.

While Kylie Jenner isn't as eye-catching as her peers on the red carpet, she also debuted prominent nipple detail in the form of a tapered bra at the Met Gala. Her Oscar de La Renta gown was custom-made and resembled a chiseled marble bust in the garden.
