Demi Lovato took a risk when she wore an unconventional, nude illusion dress to yesterday's Teen Choice Awards. The nude factor, however, wasn't an illusion — it was a reality as soon as her left nipple strode down the red carpet. Yikes. But on the bright side, it's a smart accessory for any young starlet looking to transition into the adult market.

"Age appropriateness," as a concept, is pretty subjective, but Demi Lovato's nipple is inarguably R-rated for a kids' show. Yeah, you have to squint a bit to see it, but I'm willing to bet any pre-teen or adolescent boy watching last night was squinting away.

Taylor Swift, meanwhile, demonstrates how to do nude illusion without the actual nudity.
