Scout Willis showed off a bit more than she probably planned at an art gallery launch in London, accidentally flashing her nipples and hairy armpits in a gorgeous orange dress.
We say acccidental, but since a) she’s no stranger to flaunting what her mumma gave her and b) she’s a keen activist for the brilliant #FreeTheNipple campaign, we’re guessing that perhaps she was making a statement.
Either way, it doesn’t *really* matter because she looked b-e-a-utiful in that dress.
The 23-year-old daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore was in town to launch her awesome new artwork collection at the Impossible 8X8 exhibition.
However, the blonde beauty managed to cause somewhat of a stir when people noticed that a) the dress was pretty see-through and b) there was a tiny amount of armpit hair in her armpit. Y’know, where armpit hair usually grows.
In fact, we were even gifted with a close-up photo, because apparently we needed to see what armpit hair really looks like.
Taking to Twitter, Scout didn’t seem too impressed with the world focusing more on the state of her armpits than on her artwork, writing: “Love that I make art and all people seem to care about is the state of my underarms…. #smdh.”
She then shared a photo of the ‘offending’ hair, tweeting: “L O F***ING L,” before retweeting a fan who’d just the wise words of Kim Kardashian to say: “For Christ’s sake, can we just let
@Scout_Willis live already?”
Wise words indeed.
Scout also shared a video of a robot from a film (we assume) saying ‘alright everyone, chill’, writing alongside it: “Sitting at home just so *devastated* over people’s opinions on my body… Oh wait, no I’m not….”
Would you like some ice for that burn, world?
When she wasn’t firing up Twitter with her nips and armpits, Scout was discussing following in her parents’ footsteps and going into acting – something she isn’t to keen on.
She admitted: “God bless them but I would never want to be an actress – I’m too sensitive.
“They take a beating and it’s about your personal life as well as your art. I like to be in control of what I’m making.
“I’ve seen my parents put everything into a role and then somewhere along the line it becomes about other peoples’ decisions.”
Last year, Scout walked around New York topless in a campaign against MazSight’s no nudity policy.
Speaking at the time, Scout explained in an XO Jane blog: “I walked around New York topless and documented it on Twitter, pointing out that what is legal by New York state law is not allowed on MazSight.
“I am not trying to argue for mandatory toplessness, or even bralessness.
“What I am arguing for is a woman’s right to choose how she represents her body — and to make that choice based on personal desire and not a fear of how people will react to her or how society will judge her.”
Hear, hear. #FreeTheNipple
We might prefer the shaven armpit look (is that weird to say on here? Too late), but we’ve got big respect for Scout for doing whatever the heck she wants with her body – armpit hair included. Go on, girl.
