The History of the Nipple Pasty From Burlesque Dancers to Miley Cyrus

Nipple pasties are having a moment. Miley Cyrus, who wore the accessory to a performance on Wednesday night, joins others, including Nicki Minaj, Lady Gaga, Cara Delevingne, and Rihanna to give the look a try. Tom Ford even featured couture nipple covers in his most recent runway collection. While the sticker is currently trending, it actually has a deep history in the fashion world. 

Miley Cyrus wore sparkly nipple pasties during a private concert at Art Basel in Miami. The rest of her outfit matched from her silver tights — with thong on top — and tinsel wig.


Wearing a dress from Tom Ford's Spring 2015 Collection, Cara Delevingne pulls of high-end nipple pasties.

Performing onstage, Nicki Minaj wears nipple stickers underneath a sheer metallic top.

Never one to miss out on a trend, Lady Gaga covers up her nipples that show through sheer panelling with what looks like black duct tape exes.

    What an awful thing it would be if the nonsense of nipple hiding came to an end.
