28 Most Embarrassing Wardrobe Malfunctions of All Time


Oh my goodness! When it comes to fashion faux pas, stars have had their fair share of wardrobe malfunctions. All of this occurs in plain sight for the most part.

Everyone from Lindsay Lohan to Nicki Minaj has had to deal with a wardrobe malfunction. Some celebrities have frozen when it comes to fashion disasters, but most of them can laugh it off and move on.

You'll understand if you've ever been embarrassed by a wardrobe malfunction, such as a torn shirt, a snag in your jeans, or a tag poking out of your shirt. Also, you aren't on your own. Unfortunately, even the most well-dressed men, women, and non-binary friends occasionally have embarrassing wardrobe malfunctions, as evidenced by the examples below.

Even though Hollywood stars may appear flawless, they too have their share of awkward dress moments. Even if they have a team of assistants and stylists surrounding them, things can still go wrong.

Many embarrassing NSFW malfunctions have occurred at events and in front of cameras because of the elaborate designer attire and cameras. Katy Perry's split jeans, Saweetie's peek-a-boo moment, and Charli XCX's small slide off the shoulder are just a few examples of fashion faux pas.

To show that embarrassing moments can be overcome, celebrities have learned to laugh it off and share the humor with their followers, even in front of a large audience. Zendaya's near-faceplant in high heels is nothing compared to what you can accomplish if you put your mind to it!

Rachel Zegler

The rescuers are on the way! At the Critics' Choice Awards in March 2022, Rachel Zegler stated that her dress had broken, but she had quite the crew to restore it.

After a night of dancing, my dress fell apart. Using a hairpin, Lady Gaga, Este Haim, and Alana Haim came together to temporarily repair the problem. The West Side Story star wrote, "And I think that's lovely."


With ease! On The One Show in March 2022, the Cinderella actress had a nip slip while showing her dance talents to the virtual audience.

Despite the wardrobe malfunction, she could finish her salsa performance without missing a beat, picking up her shirt, and continuing. Finally, she said, "I hope you didn't see my nipple."

Paris Hilton

Shoe pranks, anyone? The This Is Paris actor appeared on The Tonight Show, starring Jimmy Fallon, in 2022, wearing two distinct pairs of sneakers.

After the show, Fallon made light of Hilton's clothing mishaps. "When you rush out of the house with the incorrect shoes," he captioned an Instagram picture of the reality star walking on stage.

Dakota Johnson

Whoops! The 50 Shades of Grey actress donned a Magda Butrem dress that was shorter than expected on The Late Late Show With James Corden.

Hem rode up, and she was forced to use her hands to conceal her upper thigh when she was forced to sit down. In response to Corden's question about whether or not she wanted his blazer, Johnson said, "I'm alright. Nobody hasn't seen it before."

Miley Cyrus

She was handled as though it were a breeze! The "Party in the USA" singer's top from Akna Store snapped during her NBC New Year's Eve show. After discarding the damaged shirt to the side, Cyrus strode backstage for a quick clothing change. When she reappeared, it was in an oversized Saint Laurent blazer.

Charli XCX

The "Good Ones" singer must have been delighted that the ARIA Awards in November 2021 weren't live. Justin Bieber and Kid La Rai received an award from Charli XCX for their song "Stay," which they recorded at home. The strap of Charli's dress fell, revealing her breasts as she waved goodbye (which was censored in the video).

Upon learning of the wardrobe malfunction, the English native was stunned and soon laughed it off. Rerecorded her presentation without any mishaps, but she couldn't resist posting an amusing video on Instagram a few days later.

Lil Nas X

It was May 2021, and the rapper was singing "Montero (Call Me By Your Name)" on Saturday Night Live when his pants fell apart. As he prepared to begin a complicated pole dance with his tight jeans flaunted, Lil Nas X kept his palm on his groin the entire time to ensure nothing explicit was broadcast live. A day after his performance, he tweeted that "ripping my trousers on live television is not one of the things I plan on doing in the future," he wrote.

Lily-Rose Depp

Actress Elizabeth Olsen wore a plunging black and white gown to London's The King premiere on October 3, 2019, which nearly dropped to reveal more than intended before she caught it. The teenage model was forced to cling to her ruffled top the rest of the way down the red carpet.

Gigi Hadid

Yikes! The supermodel's heel shattered seconds before she stepped onto the runway in a powder blue dress for Marc Jacobs' NYFW Show on September 11, 2019. Even though she had to walk on her tiptoes to make it look like she was still wearing heels, the diva did it like a pro.

Farrah Abraham

Her floral dress had a high split, and she accidentally showed off a little too much skin when showing it off at the Venice Film Festival screening of Ad Astra on August 29, 2019.

Kim Kardashian

KKW Beauty creator Kim Kardashian West has long been recognized for her slender figure, but in January 2019, she gave an insight into how she keeps it that way. With Kanye West by her side in Miami, Kim Kardashian sported a dress with a high cut that exposed her beige Spanx. "Sometimes I wear two sets of body shapers on top of each other," the reality star wrote on her app in April 2016 when she was heavier, "I def double it up." There is a wonderful sense of security that you get from them!" On August 17, 2018, Kim Kardashian stepped out in Miami, Florida, wearing a neon yellow skirt with a high slit that displayed her underwear and a noticeable fake tan line.

Theresa May

To emphasize that royals are just like us, the Duchess of Sussex deplaned in Tonga on Thursday, October 25, with her red Self-Portrait garment still connected to her. Before stepping out for the night, she didn't have the time to double-check her attire. In addition to being pregnant, she's been on a two-week whirlwind tour.

Nicki Minaj

At the Made in America festival in Philadelphia on September 2, 2018, the rapper had a catastrophic wardrobe malfunction. "Wait a minute," he says. Count me in. There must have been at least 50 people in the audience who saw her nipples tonight, she stated onstage.

Cara Delevingne

Cheeky! While attempting to mingle with fans over a barrier at the London premiere of Pan on September 20, the Paper Towns star accidentally exposed her underpants to cameras.

Nicky Hilton

Is this a malfunction but a daring move? Her butt was on full display when she visited the Versace presentation in Paris on July 5, before she married Prince Harry at Kensington Palace.

Elizabeth Hurley

Eeps! The Royals actress wore a lovely blush dress to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation's 2015 Hot Pink Party on April 30, 2015. From behind, she lifted it just enough to see her butt cheeks!

Jennifer Lawrence

Whoops! Lawrence lifted the fabric of her Dior dress at the 2013 SAG Awards, displaying the design's translucent underlay—and a little leg—due to the move.

Jess Simpson

In New York City's Times Square in September 2008, the singer's frilly outfit may not have been the ideal pick for her Good Morning America show. Her dress was blown up by the wind, allowing the crowd to see her from behind. Before continuing with the act, she tried her best to keep her dress in place and took a brief halt.

Sharon Stone

It's no secret that the actress, who made headlines in 1992 for wearing more than just a lace dress in Basic Instinct, doesn't mind showing a little skin now and then. In her own words, "I don't think [nudity] is that big of a deal if the character I'm playing or the tone of the work calls for it."

Keyshia Cole

It wasn't until she started busting moves that the crotch of her white overalls split open at her Detroit concert in 2013 as she was so intent on energizing the crowd! (However, her underwear was showing.)

Teresa Palmer

Many people are treating it as if it were the worst crime ever committed. Let me tell you something: "It was a big error!" Reid, who eventually rectified her botched breast operation at P. Diddy's 35th birthday celebration in New York City in 2004, said of her catastrophic misstep in 2004. You'd think I'd shot Gandhi with my boob." Hooters are no longer a problem for me. I'm completely bandaged up at this point. Double tape is what I'm now utilizing. Tape two copies of the same thing. "My boobs aren't moving."

Janet Jackson

The singer popularized the term "wardrobe malfunction" following her Super Bowl XXXVIII performance in 2004 when Justin Timberlake mistakenly removed a portion of her costume. It went so far as to sue CBS for the bra-baring half-time show and sought nearly $600,000 in fines from the Federal Communications Commission.

Lili Reinhart

Lili was forced to grin at the 2017 Teen Choice Awards despite her blunders on the red carpet. In a tweet, Lili explained that the dress had a waistband held together by two threads, and one of them ripped as she was being zipped up. I was ecstatic to be there after the s*** show and have one of my best friends, @taylrfostr stitch me back together in ten minutes. " Lili, we feel your pain!


As a veteran performer, Queen Bey is no stranger to dealing with complicated wardrobes, so it's no surprise that she handled her recent wardrobe malfunction beautifully. After her performance in Times Square in 2011, she must have realized the importance of wearing wind-resistant gear at events.

What did Beyonce do when her leotard tore during a live performance of "Halo" and exposed her crotch? WHY DO YOU THINK THAT IS?! When her leotard came undone, she grabbed it and kept on dancing. She's a queen! Anything less would have been a disappointment.


Zendaya maintains her elegance and poise like a swan as if she's on the edge of falling. There's a good chance that a pair of six-inch heels would have been terrible on the red carpet of the 2016 Radio Disney Music Awards. Fashion News reported that Christian Louboutin, Z's stylist, claimed that he didn't design the shoes to be worn outside. "I had to hold her up since her legs buckled after only eight minutes of walking to the carpet."

Kendall Jenner

Kendall was up for the challenge of wearing thigh-high lace-up boots. As she was strutting down the red carpet, the boots started unraveling, and she had to stop and fix them right there and then!

Bella Hadid

It was a nightmare when Bella wore her Alexandre Vauthier couture catwalk floor-length gown. The supermodel almost escaped her private parts being displayed only by gracefully clutching the top of the dress's most prominent slit. It went off without a hitch since she is so graceful!


Coachella 2022 saw Saweetie stumble and fall in a bikini top and skirt combination while playing an explosive act. The hip-hop sensation carried on singing with Anitta like a professional as if nothing had happened. We adore a queen who is unconcerned! Take care of business, lady.
