When someone gave fashion designers the note “less is more,” they ran with it because now our favorite celebs are out here basically topless, and it feels like it might be here to stay.
Whether they’re gracing the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City or stepping out for an exclusive Oscars after-party, breasts and backs are more exposed than ever to accentuate the body and celebrate the curves.
So, please take a moment with me, if you care to. Get into these topless fashions that have caught my eye over the last few years.
