Amber Heard has rejected claims she suffered a “malfunction” by choosing not to wear a bra in public.
The Aquaman actress was snapped by photographers at a London airport over the weekend (24-25Nov18) while wearing a casual black suit and white vest, with a reporter at the Mail Online sharing the photos and describing the braless look as a “wardrobe malfunction”.
However, Amber has now blasted the publication over the headline and asserted that there is nothing wrong with women dressing to please themselves.
“I don’t care what people have to say about my fashion choices,” she told Entertainment Tonight of the controversy. “I dress for my own self. However, to say I had a malfunction because you could see my body? I’m not ashamed of it. I don’t care how it looks to you or the effect it has on you. How dare you tell me it’s a malfunction? My nipples or any part of me are not a malfunction.”
In addition, Amber took to Twitter to upload a screenshot of the article about her outfit and reiterated her argument in the accompanying caption.
“I’m sorry, but what part of my – or any woman’s – nipples a ‘malfunction’? Come on, do we really need to remind ‘journalists’ that if it is okay for a man then the same should apply for a woman? #notamalfunction #choice,” the 32-year-old wrote.
Amber’s decision to step out without a bra is the second time the star has made a sartorial statement in recent days.
On Monday, the blonde beauty also made a splash when she walked the red carpet at the London premiere of Aquaman in a glittering green Valentino gown which was matched with a swimming cap-inspired headpiece.
“Why make a wave when you can make a splash,” she wrote alongside a close-up of the ensemble on her Instagram page following the star-studded event.
