Lena Dunham took precautions to make sure she didn’t suffer a nip slip at Sunday’s Golden Globes. The “Girls” star was snapped wearing nude nipple covers as she prepared to walk the red carpet in her glamorous Zac Posen gown (see below). Her producer pal Jenni Konner shared the picture on Instagram, along with the caption, “#FREETHENIPPLE cover.”

The phrase, of course, is a nod to the “Free the Nipple” movement that has gained momentum over the past year, challenging the criminalization of female nudity in public and on platforms like Instagram. Miley Cyrus, Liv Tyler, and other stars have brought attention to the campaign, which seeks to “empower women across the world.”

According to the official Free the Nipple mission statement, “We stand against female oppression and censorship, both in the United States and around the globe. Today, in the USA it is effectively ILLEGAL for a woman to be topless, breastfeeding included, in 35 states. In less tolerant places like Louisiana, an exposed nipple can take a woman to jail for up to three years and cost $2,500 in fines. Even in New York City, which legalized public toplessness in 1992, the NYPD continues to arrest women. We’re working to change these inequalities through film, social media, and a grassroots campaign.”

Dunham and Konner had some fun with the “Free the Nipple” theme on Sunday, and at initial glance, it sure looks like Dunham is challenging Instagram’s strict zero-tolerance policy on female toplessness. But it was actually just some red carpet prep work. Check out the pictures below.
