The Inevitable Has Happened: Glitter Nipples Are Now a Thing

And it's all thanks to Saint Laurent.

Anthony Vaccarello made his debut as creative director for Saint Laurent at Paris Fashion Week—and came out swinging sparkly. Just when we thought we'd reached peak sparkly body parts (that's eyeslipsears, and beyond if you're keeping track), Vaccarello dared to free the nipple...then embellish it in glittery fashion. Said areola belonged to one Binx Walton, who channeled her inner Lil-Kim-at-the-1998-Grammys and strutted down the runway in a classic, single-breast-exposing leather LBD.

Upon closer examination of the nipple in question courtesy of a NSFW 'gram from Walton herself, it appears to be a crystalized, heart-shaped pasty. Bringing a whole new meaning to wearing your heart on your sleeve or lack thereof, one thing's for certain: The Saint Laurent glitter nipple is the new Saint Laurent glitter boot.
