If you think you've seen it all in the world of fashion then you clearly haven't seen the cow nipple dress. Designer Rachel Freire took 3,000 cow nipples and used them to create two dresses and a bra which she debuted during London Fashion Week.

From far away the dresses and bra look innocent enough, but up close is where you can start to see what separates these pieces from all others. Animal rights activists are up in arms over the use of the cow nipples in fashion calling the clothing sick and grotesque. Freire is defending her cow nipple dress and bra stating that she was just creating fashion out of items that would normally be thrown away (the nipples were given to Freire from a tannery). You can check out the images of the cow nipple dress and bra and decide for yourself whether on whether they're fashion or not.
