We’re all about freeing the nipple over here at In Touch Weekly, but we have to give a special shout out to Julianne Hough’s nipple — which is so enlightened, it actually freed itself!

Some call it a nip slip. We call it self-actualization.

The beautiful blonde, 26, suffered a wardrobe malfunction on her way to the Dancing With the Stars finale after-party in LA yesterday, May 19.

She was wearing a sheer harlequin-style dress designed to conceal her lovely lady lumps behind strategically placed pieces of velvet fabric — but her nipple was all, “Nah, I’m going to do what I want!”

Fortunately for Julianne, having a wardrobe malfunction is pretty much a rite of passage in Hollywood (congrats, you’ve made it girlfriend!!!!!!) — and these 17 stars can prove they happen to the best of ‘em!
