While Janet Jackson’s Super Bowl incident became legendary, some celebrities still don’t take the necessary measures to prevent wardrobe malfunctions and end up looking ridiculous on the red carpet in images that live on the internet forever.
See a few of the most embarrassing celebrity wardrobe malfunctions that the paparazzi were quick to photograph and share with the world. From Paris Hilton to Taylor Swift, check out some totally preventable wardrobe issues.
Paris Hilton’s Revealing Dress
The famous socialite decided to show everyone the reason she became a celebrity in the first place on her 33rd birthday. Wearing a bright pink Alon Livne dress at her Greystone Manor Supperclub party, Paris reminded her fans of her famous crotch shots with no underwear.
There’s absolutely no excuse to wear an outfit in which the slightest wrong move or the lightest breeze could expose your entire crotch.
Jennifer Lawrence’s Dirty Dress
As the face of Dior, Jennifer Lawrence gets to wear some of the most stylish gowns on the red carpet. Unfortunately, she doesn’t seem to care about them even getting on the red carpet stain free. Lawrence experienced one of the most embarrassing celebrity wardrobe malfunctions when she showed up at the 2013 EE British Academy Film Awards in London with stains on her hemline.
Rihanna’s Sheer Nipple Extravaganza
Considering how many times Rihanna has flashed her nipples under see-through tops, it’s still undecided if this was an actual wardrobe malfunction or a deliberate look. The Barbados-born singer revealed her breast by not wearing a bra under a very sheer dress at an after party during Paris Fashion Week.
Selena Gomez’s High Slit
Some of the most embarrassing celebrity wardrobe malfunctions don’t take place on the red carpet, but on a stage where dancing increases the risk of showing too much in a revealing outfit. That happened to Selena Gomez at the 103.3 AMP Radio Birthday Bash concert in Boston, where her dress’ unusually high central slit exposed her crotch to her screaming fans.
Jennifer Lopez's Academy Award Slip Up
After managing to pull off one of the most revealing outfits of all time at the 2000 Grammy Awards, J-Lo clearly knows how to use double-stick tape. Unfortunately, she slipped up at the 2012 Academy Awards, where one of her nipples got dangerously to popping out while she presented an award with Cameron Diaz.
Michelle Williams’s Black Panties
For the world premiere of “Oz The Great And Powerful”, Michelle Williams wore a daring dress, with lateral slits so high that she had to choose between not wearing underwear or having it show. Her choice of black panties ended up as one of the most embarrassing celebrity wardrobe malfunctions since it completely ruined her look from the side.
Britney Spears’s Stockings Incident
Fishnet stockings tend to disintegrate if you’re doing complicated dance routines while wearing them and Britney learned that the hard way during her “Piece of Me” Show in Las Vegas. The stockings worn under her bedazzled sheer leotard started falling apart at her crotch on both legs!
Iggy Azalea’s High Slit Nightmare
The Australian singer literally proved that she has nothing to hide at the 2013 MTV Europe Music Awards. Her red carpet appearance ended up as one most embarrassing celebrity wardrobe malfunctions. The high slits on her dress left nothing to the imagination and the flimsy nude panties she wore underneath were also pretty useless in hiding her crotch.
Taylor Swift’s Wind Machine Snafu
Falling victim to a wind machine during a St. Louis concert, Taylor Swift managed to avoid a truly outrageous incident, but she still went through an embarrassing moment. Her dress flew up revealing underwear that can only be described as Spanxr granny panties.
Rumer Willis’ Revealing Cut Outs
At the 2014 ELLE’s Women in Music Concert, Rumer learned an important lesson regarding dresses with cut outs and the paparazzi. Because she didn’t check how the dress looks from the side, she ended up with one of the most embarrassing celebrity wardrobe malfunctions, revealing her bright pink underwear.
