Today is Go Topless Day, a holiday which, believe it or not, actually exists. The day is meant to protest or celebrate topless laws (depending on the legality of female toplessness wherever you live), and those who observe it around the world take time to spread the message that women should have equal rights as men, and be allowed to expose their bare torsos in public.
Whether or not you agree with the day’s mission, you can’t deny that fashion seems to celebrate “Go Topless Day” on a regular basis, and it’s rare that a week goes by without a celebrity exposing themselves in public or a designer sending topless models down a runway.
If, like us, you’re not quite ready to run around town with your ladies out and free, you can celebrate today by looking back at some of our favorite topless fashion moments, from Kate Moss to Gwyneth Paltrow. There are innumerable models and actresses who have forgone bras in the name of fashion, and below are some of the best 21 pictures.
