What is it about fashion events that make people want to take off their clothes? We've seen it happen more than just a handful of times, and now, it's almost guaranteed that any high-profile fashion event will be disrupted in some way by folks running around in the buff. Last night's annual Met Gala kicked off with authorities having to apprehend a hot pink mankini-clad gentleman who ripped off his clothes and made a dash for the Met stairs. While his feet didn't touch the actual crimson carpet, he definitely made another memorable moment for the fashion set.
Perhaps they're just fans of irony, or maybe they're just immature and obnoxious, but it seems these days that crashing a fashion affair in little-to-no clothing is the thing for many brave souls looking to cause a stir. Check out these streakers of fashion events past…before more crop up in the future.
