21 Celebrities with Dresses and Skirts Caught in the Wind

We just want to let Kate Middleton know that she isn’t the only one who has suffered a wind-related wardrobe malfunction. In fact, it’s happened to plenty of other high-profile celebrities, including one other royal.

Dear Duchess Kate, we hope you find solace in our list of celebrities who have also had their dresses and skirts caught in the wind! The wind is a a friend of fashion photography editorials, but as the following women know, it can also be a formidable foe.

1. Queen Maxima

The wind chooses no one: not even a queenly title can protect a woman from its powers to create potentially embarrassing situations.

2. Katy Perry

If the wind could talk, it would probably say that Katy Perry’s super-short Smurfette dress was just asking for it.
