Wardrobe malfunctionNoun: Accidental and embarrassing situation that results in exposure of a person's body parts due to a temporary failure of clothing items to do their jobs.
It happens to all of us, but let's be honest here — these malfunctions are only interesting when they happen to our beloved celebrities. Why? Well duh, because they always look so perfect and polished, like they're not even mortals. But one tiny, unplanned nip slip can change that fake perceptions that we have. That is why it is nice to see that they are actually just humans, like the rest of us. But then again, it is not nice to be happy for other people's misfortunes. So what do you do in a situation like this? Well, be petty and enjoy those unfortunate events.
15 Wardrobe Malfunctions That Will Actually Make You Glad To Not Be A Celebrity
From see-through dresses to accidental nip-slips, here are 15 of the most embarrassing celebrity wardrobe malfunctions.
15 Jennifer Garner spanx reveal
Pearl Harbor, Alias, 13 Going on 30, Elektra, and Ben Affleck – the best words used to describe this amazing woman. Yes, it's obvious that we are talking about the beautiful Jennifer Garner. Jennifer is known for her amazing personality, and for her glamours and elegant style. However, she is not immune to wardrobe malfunctions. In 2014, at the premiere of Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day Jennifer had a small incident with her dress, while she was posing with her co-star, Steve Carell. At one moment, Garner accidentally lifted the bottom part of her black dress, and flashed her spanx to the photographers. But don't worry, this faux pas didn't ruin her night — she did several interviews after this had happened, and she looked completely happy.
14 Lady Gaga's nip slip at CFDA Fashion Awards
Lady Gaga, or as her fans like to call her, Mother Monster, is known for her eccentric fashion. She's done it all. And she's wore it all. Let's just take a moment to remember the infamous meat dress Gaga wore at the MTV Video Music Awards. Shocking! And even though this singer/songwriter/actress has a team of stylists take takes care of her crazy dresses, sometimes they don't really give their best to please Gaga. Back in 2011, "Born This Way" singer received the Fashion Icon award at CFDA Fashion Awards. Her dress was beautiful, but something went wrong, and somehow both of Gaga's nipples slipped. Of course, as soon as the incident occurred, tabloids started speculating whether the nip slip was accidental or not.
13 Elizabeth Olsen and her windy wardrobe malfunction
If you don't know who Elizabeth Olsen is, then you at least know who her sisters are (hint: famous twins). But this is not about them. Elizabeth Olsen is an actress, best known for her role of Wanda Maximoff in several Marvel movies. As you might have already known, Elizabeth has an amazing sense of style (just like her sisters). But sometimes, her fashion is not very obedient. Take a look at these paparazzi photos above. They were taking in Paris, last year, when Elizabeth attended Miu Miu Club's launch of their first fragrance. As you can see, Elizabeth looks gorgeous, and her outfit is on point. Unfortunately, when choosing her dress, Elizabeth forgot to take into consideration that it might be windy outside, so that's why she experienced this Marilyn Monroe-ish moment.
12 Sofía Vergara's unfortunate dress split
This Colombian beauty has won our hearts with her role of Gloria Delgado-Pritchett, on the ABC's hit series Modern Family. But honestly, she steals our hearts every time she steps on a red carpet. Just look at how stunning and glamorous she was at the 2012 Emmy Awards' red carpet. Wow! However, things backstage were not as glamours as they were on the red carpet. Our poor Sofia had a wardrobe malfunction! Yes, just 20 minutes before Modern Family won an Emmy, her dress split right over her booty. Soon after the big win, she tweeted the picture of her dress and wrote, "Yes!!!! This happend 20 min before we won!!!! Jajajajja. I luv my life!!!!"
Honestly, we're not even surprised that her dress wasn't able to contain her beautiful Latina curves.
11 Britney Spears's jumpsuit malfunction at one of her Vegas shows
Britney Spears, a.k.a. the Princess of Pop is used to wearing all kinds of outfits and costumes, considering that she's always performing — she's either in Vegas, doing her residency show, or promoting her albums and performing on television. But either way, she's constantly wearing costumes, corsets, and unitards. She was performing her 2009 hit single "3" when the zipper on the back of her jumpsuit popped open. Her dancers immediately stepped in and tried to fix the zipper (they failed though). And this was not the first time she experienced wardrobe malfunctions (just a few months ago, some of her hair extensions fell off during one of her Vegas shows). So yeah, we can say — oops!... she did it again (do you see what we did there?)!
10 Demi Lovato's date night wardrobe malfunction
This Disney actress turned singer is not very present in the tabloids. Well, only sometimes, mostly when she's spreading awareness about eating disorders, and promoting healthy images. However, the "Cool for the Summer" singer was all over the media and the internet two years ago for such a stupid reason — because she experienced a small faux pas. Demi Lovato and her then-bae Wilmer Valderrama attended Nick Jonas' album release party in Beverly Hills. After the party had ended, Demi and Wilmer headed towards their car. Unfortunately for Demi, her skirt was too short, so while she was trying to get inside the car, she accidentally flashed her crotch to the paparazzi. Luckily for her, she didn't forget to wear underwear. So yeah, it could have been worse!She looked pretty chill about it though, like she really didn't care (get it?).
9 Gigi Hadid
Yeah, even models experience wardrobe malfunctions (another example of this will come later). This time we're talking about Gigi Hadid, a 21-year-old model who is currently one of the most popular models. You may also know her as Zayn Malik's girlfriend, or as one of Kendall Jenner's best friends. Earlier this year, Gigi was booked for the Versace Show at Milan Fashion Week. She did a pretty good job, but at one point, while she was walking down the catwalk, she suffered a nip slip. She wasn't bothered by it though. And neither was Donatella Versace — she actually gave Gigi a high five while Gigi was finishing her walk. Later that night Gigi took to Twitter and wrote, "Wadrobe malfunctions happen on the runway every day of fw & are...unfortunate,lol,but let's talk instead about the new VERSACE CHOKERS & the bags & the boots & the coats & everythinnngggg, killin me Donatella @Versace !!!!!!!"
8 Paris Hilton
Even if you don't follow pop culture very much, you have probably heard of Paris Hilton. Yeah. The Paris Hilton. The ultimate "it girl". The heiress. The socialite. The party-girl turned businesswoman. The predecessor of Kim Kardashian. Yeah, that Paris Hilton. Well, as you may have assumed from all of these words we used to describe her, she's pretty popular, and very interesting to the media. The media simply loves to hate her, but also hates to love her (same thing with us, to be honest) — it's a pretty weird relationship, but it works. Paris Hilton experienced multiple wardrobe malfunctions, so it was difficult to chose one. We decided to include her almost vagina slip at her 32nd birthday party. As you can see, her dress had a very high slit, so it was just a matter of time when Paris will show a bit too much of her body. And of course, going commando was probably not the best idea as well. Not wearing underwear + high cut dress = disaster.
7 Lena Dunham's Marilyn Monroe Moment
Lena Dunham is mostly known for her hit HBO series, Girls. Have you seen it? Well, you have to because it's amazing. Anyways, Last year, this 29-year-old actress had some issues with her outfit. Or did she have issues with the weather? It depended how you look at it. Lena was out and about in the Big Apple, just having a day off. She wore this cute colorful dress and flats — the perfect outfit to wear when you just want to have a casual day off. Well, that wasn't the case with Lena. Unfortunately for her, it was windy that day in NYC, so at one point the wind blew her dress up, flashing her derrière to the paparazzi.So, what do you think, who did it better – Marilyn Monroe or Lena Dunham?
6 Margot Robbie's wardrobe malfunction at a movie premiere
Have you seen Margot Robbie in her latest movie The Legend Of Tarzan? She plays Jane, a damsel in distress. However, it seems that she's not only portraying a damsel in distress in movies, she's also one on red carpets. During The Legend of Tarzan premiere in London, Robbie had some issues with her outfit. Of course, she looked stunning — she was wearing a beautiful full-length sequined dress, and nobody could keep their eyes off her. But when she bent down to fix her shoes, she experienced some malfunction with the back of her dress. Luckily for her, Tarzan - no, wait - Alexander Skarsgård was there to help her out. Right after Alexander fixed her dress, Margot kissed him on the cheek as a "thank you", and laughed off the incident.
5 Naomi Campbell
Naomi Campbell is definitely one of the most popular models in the world (and also one of six models that were declared "supermodels" for the first time by the fashion industry). And of course, being a model Naomi is pretty much used to nudity — she's gone nude or topless for numerous photo shoots (Why wouldn't she? She looks amazing). However, even for someone like Naomi, who is completely okay with nudity, unintentional public nip slips are not very comfortable. One of those nip slips happened last December, when the 46-year-old model attended a party at Madonna's house in London. She didn't seem very bothered by it though. Or she didn't actually realize what had happened. Who knows? Either way, it's just a nipple, and she has nothing to be ashamed of.
4 Nicky Hilton at the Versace Show
Here we have another member of the Hilton family – Nicky Hilton. Nicky is Paris Hilton's younger sister, however she's not as "wild" as Paris. The word "wild" does not have a negative connotation in the previous sustenance. We simply used it to explain that Nicky does not party as much as Paris, nor is she present in the media as much as Paris is. That being said, Nicky does make headlines from time to time. For example, she was all over the internet when she experienced this unfortunate wardrobe malfunction at the Versace Show, at Paris Fashion Week. We have to admit, Nicky's dress was a brave and risky choice, but also a literal wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen.
3 Madonna at the 2015 Brit Awards
This is the woman who changed pop music forever, and the person to whom most of today's pop stars look up to (Britney Spears and Lady Gaga, what's good?). Yes, we're talking about Madonna, the original Queen of Pop. You must have seen some of her performances, haven't you? Well, in case you haven't, then trust us when we say that they are pretty spectacular. That shouldn't be surprising though, considering how huge Madonna's career is. Plus, the fact that Madonna is a perfectionist only confirms that. However, sometimes things don't go perfectly as Madonna wants them to go. For instance, she had a small incident during her performance at the 2015 Brit awards where she performed her single "Living for Love". As it can be seen on the picture above, Madonna was wearing a full-length cape (designed especially for this performance by Armani). That infamous cape was supposed to be removed by one of Madonna's dancers. Unfortunately, the cape was hooked to tight so when the dancer pulled it, he took Madonna with it. Of course, that didn't stop Madonna, so she got up and gave us an amazing performance.
2 Nicki Minaj at the MTV Video Music Awards
Onika Tanya Maraj, better known by her stage name Nicki Minaj, is a real show stopper. You can dislike her as much as you want, but it's a fact that her performances are always amazing. But one of her award performances stands out more than the others. Yes, we are talking about the performance at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards. That year, Nicki Minaj was, together with Ariana Grande and Jessie J, the opening act. Nicki started the performance with her hit song "Anaconda", and after the song had ended, Nicki went off the stage to change her outfit. Meanwhile, Ariana Grande and Jessie J had already started performing "Bang Bang", a song that these three singers recorded together. When the time came for Nicki to perform her rap part, she showed up holding her dress together because the zipper apparently ripped.
We have to admit, she handled this awkward situation like a pro, and slayed her performance.
1 Janet Jackson at Super Bowl XXXVIII
Super Bowl XXXVIII, held on February 1, 2004, was supposed to be the biggest moment of Janet Jackson's career. She had it all planned — she was gonna sing all of her greatest hits; her costumes and choreography were on point; and she somehow managed to get Justin Timberlake to be her guest on the Super Bowl stage. Yes, it was supposed to be the biggest moment of her career. Unfortunately for her, Super Bowl was the reason why her career started going downhill. What could have happened to cause that? The answer is - Nipplegate. Nipplegate is a name the media used for Janet's wardrobe malfunction incident that occurred during her and Timberlake's duet performance of "Rock Your Body". This performance wasn't much choreographed — it's just Janet and Justin singing and following each other around the stage. As the song was ending, the two started dancing with each other while moving to the center of the stage for the grand finale. That's when Timberlake pulled Janet's wardrobe and caused the infamous nip slip.
