Ah, the gorgeous Brad Pitt posing at an event looking so fly, blissfully unaware that he didn't zip up his jeans fly while he was at it. Oh well, looks like Brad here forgot to "Benjamin Button" up!!!


Rihanna Image source: i6.tinypic.com

It seems Rihanna's outlandish style got the b(r)e(a)st of her!!! In what seems like a sudden slip, her glamorous outfit almost gave her rack away to the camera-flashing paparazzi. Lucky for her, she caught it on time unlike Ms. Reid and managed to cover her precious twosome!!

Megan Fox Image source: cache4.asset-cache.net

Not having the foxiest moment was Megan Fox when her dress flew up at the 2009 Teen Choice Awards. Luckily, she handled it well and managed to pin her hands on the dress so as to avert a major flash disaster!!!!! Close call eh?


Toni Braxton Image source: thenepaliclub.com

Toni Braxton gave herself and everyone else watching quite the scare when her lightweight dress flew up during her performance with Il Divo at the opening of the Adidas World of Football in Berlin, Germany in 2006. I for one had quite a laugh looking at the picture!!!


Fergie Image source: bittenandbound.com

While usually its the menfolk who forget to zip up, Fergie decided to change things up for a bit, although unintentionally. Seen here, Fergie performs at a live concert, unaware that her zip has not been zipped up. Is ignorance really bliss?


Emma Watson Image source: randomoverload.com

Looks like the Harry Potter star could have really done with a magic spell to keep her dress from revealing her panties in the London wind!!


Lindsay Lohan Image source: farm4.static.flickr.com

Adding to her list of malfunctions and dysfunctions is Lindsay,with her little dress getting a bit too little. Was she genuinely unaware of this dress's risks or was Ms. Notoriety in the mood for some peek-a-boo? I guess we will never know.


Jennifer Hawkins Image source: images.2dayfm.com.au

This one MADE my day!!! Miss Universe 2004 Jennifer Hawkins lost her skirt while strutting her stuff on the catwalk. Its absolutely hilarious as to how she sashays down the ramop and then the skirt just drops off her while she's on her way. Thank god for color-coordinated lingerie and the underside of her heels if nothing.


Kelly Brook Image source: aolcdn.com

Wardrobe malfunctions spare nobody, not even the most beautiful. Kelly is proof. The mischievous London wind decided to make her flimsy dress stick to her front and rear, and how awkwardly at that!!


Susan Boyle Image source: i.dailymail.co.uk

Pulling off another Fergie was Susan Boyle, snapped with her fly down while leaving her home. My hunch is either she forgot to perform a full body check in the mirror before she left the house, or that she was in a rush while exiting the loo!!


Naomi Campbell Image source: 2.bp.blogspot.com

Supermodels have super nip slips, as proved by Naomi Campbell. The british supermodel went all starry to an event and ended up showing the onlookers a few stars as well with a display of her rack. Looks like being being barely clothed finally got to her!!


Kourtney Kardashian Image source: assets.nydailynews.com

Guess whose got a bone to pick with their skirt?!


Bai Ling Image source: thefablife.com

While she isn't making me shudder in utter disgust at her bizarre fashion sense, Bai Ling chooses to flash us and still feel proud! Egad!!!


Candice Bergen Image source: assets.nydailynews.com

So a camel toe sighting is reeallyyyy not cool. My advice to Candice? Please invest in a pair of more flattering pants!!!


Katherine Heigl Image source: stupidcelebrities.net

Accepting an award and delivering a line of gratitude is all that Katherine was looking forward to. What she was not expecting was her dress about to come undone and causing her to be a flasher!! Good for her she caught her nip from being bared in the nick of time!!


Sophie Marceau Image source: assets.nydailynews.com

Seen here battling a notorious blouse is Sophie. However, the damage was done, she ended up joining the ranks of the "nip flashers"!


Tila Tequila Image source: gossiboocrew.com

Can someone please tell this woman that she doesn't look good with barely any clothes on? Her wardrobe malfunctioning is way OD, just like her lack of dressing.


Victoria Beckham Image source: bittenandbound.com

Clearly "spilling over" amidst her excessive fashion is Mrs. Beckham! Eeek!!!!


Petra Nemcova Image source: 26.media.tumblr.com

Looks like a penchant for plunging necklines really takes the plunge when it comes to wardrobe malfunctions! Seen here, Ms Nemcova in a side view nip slip all thanks to no usage of double sided tape, specially created for such risque dresses.


Lily Allen Image source: lugaluda.com

And the saga of not using double sided tape continues. Another starlet who fell prey to wardrobe malfunctioning is British singer Lily Allen, seen here flashing us, albeit unaware!


Mischa Barton Image source: 2.bp.blogspot.com

Can someone please tell me why does Mischa NEVER get it right? Like EVER?!


Blake Lively Image source: assets.nydailynews.com

Blake and her never ending love affair with plunging necklines and all those sharp cut dresses. Ah, if only she also realised the perils of nip slips that come along with it. Seen here? Blake almost on the verge of flashing us her right nip!


Jessica Simpson Image source: assets.nydailynews.com

Looks like Ms. Simpson chose to give America a GREAT morning while performing on "Good Morning America" in 2008!!


Certainly. Her outfit seemed perfect for a pop star—glamorous and chic—but even stars can't always predict how their garments will behave live on air. As Jessica graced the stage, her ensemble decided to play a mischievous trick, leaving her slightly more exposed than intended. Nevertheless, the seasoned performer kept her poise. With a quick adjustment and her signature smile, she shrugged off the hiccup effortlessly, reminding us all why she's as much a pro at live performances as she is a fashion icon. Her fans rallied support, admiring her grace under the unexpected wardrobe snafu.


Janet Jackson Image source: img.metro.co.uk

This one was super famous! Back in 2004, 90 million Super Bowl viewers watched as Justin Timberlake sang 'Gonna have you naked by the end of this song' and then ripped off Janet Jackson's bustier to expose half her assets. (Granted it was covered by black tape). I mean, Justin sure did attempt to add some truth element to his song eh?


The incident, infamously coined as the Nipplegate, turned into a major controversy and led to a national debate on decency in broadcasting. Janet Jackson's career took a hit as she faced criticism and a blacklist on certain platforms, while Timberlake came out relatively unscathed, raising eyebrows about gender inequality. The wardrobe malfunction was a watershed moment that changed the rules for live TV broadcasts, instituting a delay to prevent similar mishaps. The event remains one of the most talked-about Super Bowl performances in history, ensuring that this mishap was immortalized in pop culture lore.


Tara Reid Image source: img.bollywoodsargam.com

Another notorious wardrobe malfunction is the infamous Tara Reid nip slip. Post her breast-enhancement adventure, Ms Reid attended an event gladly unaware that her strap had slipped off, exposing her rack to the paparazzi. After what seemed like an eternity, Tara just stood there smiling and posing until a kind samaritan pointed out the over-exposure to her. Phew!

Looking at these 25 women, I sure learnt a lot about avoiding major wardrobe mishaps and saving myself a lot of embarrassment. What about you? Are there any more of our celebs who could have made it to this list? I'm waiting to hear from ya!
