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.

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.

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.

10. Katie Holmes tried to look hip and young but failed miserably
Thankfully, the popular actress 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

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!”

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 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.”
