Lena Dunham and Girls producer Jenni Konner found another use for nipple pasties outside of a side boob dresses and Miley Cyrus performances. The adhesive nipples made Lena's actual nipples completely kosher for Instagram. It also doubles as a thirst trap. Later in the night, the sticky circles crawled up and found home on Lena's cheeks, apparently letting her nipples breathe beneath that Zac Posen dress.

Another great use for nipple covers! @lenadunham
