Let’s take a look back at some of the most epic fashion mishaps of all time! Please note that some of these are NSFW (not safe for work).

1. Nicky Hilton was in desperate need of underwear

This Versace shift dress has holes and see-through cut-outs all over it.

You would think the socialite would go the extra mile in ensuring her private parts would not be bare for all of the discriminating fashion-week goers to see, but no.

2. Hayley Atwell busted a seam

The British-American actress, who is best known for her portrayal of Peggy Carter in films and television series set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, busted the side seam of her dress and didn’t notice it.

3. Rita Ora also accidentally tore her dress

If Hayley seemed like she didn’t notice the wardrobe mishap, the X Factor judge and singer did.

4. Behati Prinsloo almost exposed a boob

The Victoria’s Secret model was busy smiling at the photographers when she noticed something amiss – her flimsy dress inching its way down and slowly exposing a boob.

Luckily, Behati managed to stop the dress from revealing more than a tiny bit of nip.

5. Diane Kruger found out mini dresses aren’t great for sitting

The 39-year-old actress found out the hard way that you shouldn’t sit on a high ledge with a tight minidress on – especially when you’re rocking a thigh gap.

6. Kim Kardashian bares it all

Wearing this lace dress without a slip underneath is the worst sartorial move the pregnant reality star has made this year. She looked tacky and cringe-worthy.

7. Victoria Harvey fought with her double slits

When you have not one, but two, pelvis-high slits on your dress, you’re bound to experience the same mishap Victoria Harvey experienced at the 68th Cannes Film Festival. The model and member of the British nobility fought against the wind to stop indecent exposure, to no avail.

8. Cara Delevingne should know better than to bend in a mini dress

It should be a basic rule for minidress wearers not to bend over. Some butt cheek might be having a paparazzi moment. Or at the very least, Cara should have worn a different pair of underwear.

9. Jennifer Lawrence had to fix her hem mid-event

The Mockingjay actress is no stranger to wardrobe malfunctions and mishaps. This year, she was spotted at the world premiere of her latest film, bending over and fixing the hem of her dress.

It looked as though it was either constantly getting stuck in her shoes, or her co-stars were using it as a carpet.

10. Katie Holmes tried to look hip and young but failed miserably

Thankfully, the 37-year-old wore this dreadful tight-fitting, acid-washed denim dress for a movie. We certainly hope she won’t be making such decisions in real life because this is just wrong on so many levels. Sitting in it gives everyone a peek of what’s underneath.

11. Bella Hadid gives a peek at her pubic region

As a model, Bella Hadid has no qualms about baring it all, so seeing her in revealing clothes is no longer surprising.

At the 69th Cannes Film Festival, however, Bella showed a little more than she bargained for. The model was seen struggling to keep her silky red Alexandre Vauthier gown in place to avoid a nip slip.

Although she was able to save herself from exposing her nips, she seemed to have forgotten about her underwear.

As she ascended the Palais des Festivals, Bella did not just accidentally expose her undergarment, she also gave onlookers a peek at her pubic hair.

13. Stella Maxwell forgets to put on some fashion tape

The Victoria’s Secret Angel must have had a busy fashion week that she forgot to secure her revealing wrap dress with fashion tape.

While heading to the LOVE Magazine party in celebration of London Fashion Week, Stella suffered from an embarrassing nip slip in a colorful wrap dress with a plunging neckline and a thigh-high slit.

Despite accidentally exposing her breast, just like a professional model, she remained unfazed by the nip slip incident.

14. Christina Milian leaves little to the imagination

The singer turned up braless at the Live by Night premiere in London, wearing a glittery sheer gown that showed off her amazing body. The thing is, her boobies were exposed due to bright camera flashes.

But what made the scene more embarrassing was her shapewear. Instead of wearing skin tone Spanx panties, she decided to go for white, which was clearly visible from underneath her flimsy dress.

Christina seemed oblivious to the fashion mishap as she continued to smile for the cameras.

15. Emily Ratajkowski flashes her knickers

The extremely wealthy model loves getting attention, and she proved to be a certified scene-stealer at the 2017 Golden Globes.

While Victoria Harvey tried to fight against the wind to prevent an indecent mishap, Emily, who wore a similar cleavage and leg-baring gown, looked like she purposely flashed her nude underwear.

16. Dianna Agron Shows a Little Too Much of Skin

The former Glee star attended the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty Gala in London five years ago to celebrate the creativity and originality of the British fashion designer.

However, the celebration turned into a fashion disaster as Winston Marshall’s wealthy wife suffered a major wardrobe malfunction.

She surely wasn’t happy after her Johanna Ortiz dress revealed too much of her skin. Dianna Agron suffered a major nip slip in her floor-length black gown with a dangerously low plunging neckline, revealing more than just her cleavage.

17. Ashley Tisdale and Her Gel Petal Pasties

The High School Musical star ignored her stylist’s advice not to wear gel pasties under her revealing black top. The result? A slightly embarrassing fashion mishap.

Ashley Tisdale attended the premiere of the 2016 rom-com Mother’s Day wearing a sheer black top with a leather jacket, a black choker, and black trousers. While she probably thought she looked fierce, the photographers’ flashes reflected off her nipple pasties, revealing that she went braless for the occasion.

“I literally saw the pictures on Twitter start coming up, and I literally started laughing. I was like, ‘Of course this would happen to me!’ Like, of course. But it’s just one of those things that you have to laugh at. It’s so ridiculous,” she told Yahoo! TV.

She added: “I mean my stylist said, ‘Do not wear those. You will see them. It was an option in the bag, though. I was like, ‘Oh, it’s an option. Maybe they felt like I could.’ But no!”

18. Halsey Dares to Free Her Nipples

Never one to shy away from skin-baring outfits, the daring singer-songwriter decided to bare it all in a bedazzled jumpsuit at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards.

While Ashley Tisdale had some nipple pasties on, Halsey opted to go totally braless underneath her bedazzled striped see-through outfit. Her boobs were clearly put on display in front of the photographers at the Madison Square Garden.

Although she looked underwear-free, Halsey actually wore a nude thong that provided little coverage.

19. Hailee Steinfeld Survives Wardrobe Malfunction Gracefully

The Edge of Seventeen actress showed us how to handle a minor wardrobe malfunction with grace after a seam in her custom Ralph & Russo gown ripped.

Hailee Steinfeld managed to keep her poise while posing for photographers at the 2017 Oscars red carpet. Fortunately, her hand-painted dress looked elaborate enough to divert attention from the slight mishap.

Although it’s hardly visible, she told People Magazine that it was stressful. The tear “was getting bigger and bigger as I went down the carpet, because anytime anyone stepped on the train, it would just rip more and more. There was a point where I was awkwardly holding my hand to try and hide it as it was getting bigger.”

Her boobs came close to spilling out of her semi-sheer ruffled sleeveless top, no thanks to the strong breeze that blew off her Chanel outfit. Good thing she has quick reflexes and was able to cover her assets with her hand, avoiding a nip slip.
