Many of you may have noticed that there is a giant zipper going down the center of Google, and the doodle is in honor of Gideon Sundback and his simple yet revolutionary fashion accessory!

While the zipper is used so often today, it was not always the most popular accessory. In fact, the zipper was initially shunned by the public.

But in celebration of Sundback’s birthday, April 24, we put together our favorite celebrities and the various, entertaining, ways they have sported the fashion over the last few years.

There are pure fashion-forward moments, and ones you may wish to not have witnessed! But fashion is all about risks and without them, the world would be rather boring.

Take a look at our favorite celebrities below and their uses of the zipper!
