Wardrobe Malfunctions

      Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson And Taylor Lautner

      Wardrobe Malfunction: Kristen Stewart leaves the labels on the soles of her shoes

      Look, Twilight fans! It’s Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson And Taylor Lautner, all having their hand and footprints taken outside  Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood! But wait, what’s this: Ah, that would be the price stickers on the soles of Kristen Stewart’s Brian Atwood shoes: one of our pet peeves. In this case, it’s probably not actually Kristen’s fault: we would imagine that, as with most celebrities, the shoes were probably borrowed for the occasion, hence the stickers still being on the soles. (Although, in that case, the PR/stylist should still have removed them: it’s not like they’re going to still be able to sell them – at least, not at the price on the label – after they’ve been worn, is…


      Paris Fashion Week Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2011 – Jean-Paul Gaultier – Runway

      [All images: PRPhotos.com] It’s the mother of all wardrobe malfunctions, folks! Oh no, our mistake: it’s just the Jean Paul Gaultier show at Couture Fashion Week. Whew! You may laugh now, but mark our words, you’ll all be wearing this kind of thing soon. In other news, hair is spiky, bags are even spikier, and models are smokin’. No, we mean that literally. Also, if someone could send us the stripey dress, we’d be much obliged… Take a look at the gallery, and tell us what you think!

      Akris tulle insert dress

      Daylight Robbery: Akris tulle inset dress

      You can tell from the model’s expression in this picture that she is thinking, “OK, just keep still, one wrong move and the photographer is going to get flashed with something I really don’t want to flash”’.  She would be right too. We just hope this dress comes with a plentiful supply of fashion tape to prevent any wardrobe malfunctions.  Twist too far to the right or left and you’ll be flashing a whole lot more than you intended.  Perhaps you are supposed to wear something underneath it?  Saks Fifth Avenue seem to think this dress is acceptable styled in the way it is.  Clearly their stylists have not heard the ‘low cut or short length’ rule.  But they also think…

      Natasha Alam wardrobe malfunction

      Wardrobe Malfunction Imminent: Natasha Alam at the E! Oscar Party

      We don’t know what happened to Natasha Alam’s breasts here, but it must’ve been something bad to make them so desperate to escape the confines of her dress… In fact, at first glance we thought this was an attempt to re-create the infamous Topless Wedding Dress for the red carpet: OK, so Natasha’s dress isn’t quite that bad. Unless there’s some industrial strength tit tape holding up the bodice, though, we suspect there’s a wardrobe malfunction in her very near future.

      Not a Wardrobe Malfunction, Just Looks Like One

      Deliberate Wardrobe Malfunction: White shirt by Comme des Garcons

      Oh dear… we’ve all done it, haven’t we? You try to get dressed in a hurry (or in the dark, perhaps), and then you look down, only to discover that you buttoned up your shirt all wrong. Yup, been there, done that, will probably do it again. Of course, most of us don’t actually do it deliberately,  which is why we look at this Comme des Garcons shirt and just think “Damn, that looks uncomfortable!” rather than “Wow, what an edgy and creative item!” What do YOU think? O


      Something for the Weekend: Pyjamas, shoe-baths and wardobe malfunctions

      Shoeperwoman wants to know what you think of Nicholas Kirkwood’s pink lizard lace-up sandals (pictured)? Speaking of shoes, Keeping It Realtor finds one you can take a bath in: awesome! Dollface drools over cupcakes of the cosmetic kind. The Grumpy Old Bloggers weigh-in on the Tesco pyjama-ban. Do you agree with them? And Forever Amber is forced to report herself to The Fashion Police.


      Haider Ackermann’s one shoulder dress makes wardrobe malfunctions a certainty

      Now, don’t get us wrong: we’re not opposed to a hint of cleavage on a dress – as long as “hint” is the operative word. Or, OK, let’s be fair, here: sometimes it’s possible to get away with more than a “hint”, depending on the dress (and the cleavage) in question, but you have to draw the line somewhere, and we’re drawing it here, right above this Haider Ackermann number, which is £652 at Luisa Via Roma, and which barely even deserves the name “dress”, given that it’s really little more than a skirt with an extra bit of fabric to drape over the shoulder. It would be perfect if you wanted to dress as a statue for a fancy…

      Kate Moss

      Wardrobe Malfunction: Kate Moss flashes her boobs at the Yves St. Laurent show

      Now, we know what you’re going to say: “Oh, but some dresses/tops don’t look see-through until the camera flash hits them!” And yes, that’s true. But: a) This doesn’t look like one of those tops b) You’d think Kate Moss would know about the whole “flash makes some fabrics see-through” thing by now, wouldn’t you? She’s been in the business long enough, after all. Don’t they teach that kind of thing at Celebrity School? In conclusion: we’re letting her off with a Wardrobe Malfunction ticket, but we’re not totally convinced this isn’t a full-blown crime of fashion. What do you think?

      Spotted! Anna Friel in low-cut Antonio Berardi at the Cartier International Polo Day

      Great dress, Anna Friel, but weren't you afraid to bend over? Anna looks as lovely as ever in this low-cut Antonio Berardi dress at the Cartier International Polo Day this weekend, although this isn't the kind of dress we can imagine ever feeling really comfortable in – looks like the girls are about to make a bid for escape any second. Still, we'd imagine Anna had plenty of Hollywood tape in her handbag, because there were no wardrobe malfunctions to report. What do you think of her look?

      What Not to Wear to the Beach: the Bow Bikini

      We'd arrest this model for being an accessory to a crime of fashion, but seriously, would YOU mess with her? She's all, "SO? You wanna make something of this? You wanna comment on my BOW BIKINI? Come on, I dare yas!" And we're all, "Er, no, no my good woman. You just keep right on standing there and don't move a muscle. No, seriously, we said don't move a muscle. Because unless you've already anchored that thing with some serious tit tape, that's a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen right there." This criminal was reported to us on Friday afternoon, by Fashion Police reader Katie. Katie, we didn't get much sleep this weekend after seeing this, but thanks for the…

      Maison Martin Margiella wrapping halter top: a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen

      Does Lady Gaga get ALL of her clothes from Maison Martin Margiela, do you think, or just most of them? Because we can TOTALLY see her wearing this top, can't you? And with nothing underneath it, if we know the good Lady, too. If you want to risk this one, you can buy it here. We'd recommend stocking up on the ol' "tit tape" first though – otherwise this will, as the headline says, be a wardrobe malfunction just waiting to happen.

      The Fashionland Ripper Strikes Again: Marios Schwab for Topshop

        This afternoon The Fashion Police are investigating reports of a mysterious "ripper" who has been targetting clothes around the UK… Oh no, wait: our mistake: it's just another Marios Schwab for Topshop collection. Excuse us while we call off the search… So, these two pieces (that's just one grey dress, by the way, showing the front and back views) are by Marios Schwab, and they're £55 each at Topshop. We'd recommend wearing something underneath the grey one to avoid serious wardrobe malfunction,obviously. Now, personally we prefer not to look like we just got into the kind of Dynasty-style cat fight that results in your clothes getting pulled apart, but that's just us: what do you think of these dresses?…

      Sack the Stylist: See-through tops at Next

        In defence of the items you see before you, we have to point out that they are not, in themselves, crimes of fashion. It’s just BY themselves that they become crimes of fashion – i.e. when there’s nothing underneath them but a fairly matronly looking bra. These tops presumably aren’t meant to be worn like that, though (are they?) which begs the question: why on earth would Next allow them to be photographed like that? The top on the left looks like the kind of wardrobe malfunction you’d have if you didn’t realise quite how see-through your top was when you put it on, and then stepped into a brightly-lit room. The one on the right looks… well, the same,…

      Aqua Couture Swing Sleeveless Shirt Dress: don’t bend over in it…

      Er, excuse us love, you seem to have forgotten your trousers… Whoops, no, our mistake! It’s a dress, isn’t it? Oh God, it’s a dress, and it’s exactly the kind of dress The Fashion Police hate, with enough volume up top to hide several people under and then… nothing. It only just skims the crotch, making it look like the slightest movement will leave you vulnerable to a wardrobe malfunction of the "knicker flashing" variety. That’s how it looks on this model, anyway, and OK, granted, she’s probably a little taller than average. Maybe it would look better on a shorter person. Or with leggings. Or… actually, no, we give in: we wouldn’t be able to resist the temptation to…

      Heidi Klum in minor “see-through dress” offense

      As far as the wearing of see-through dresses goes, this is only a minor offense. Indeed, at first glance, you may not even notice the fact that Heidi Klum here is wearing what appears to be a see-through skirt with a pair of giant knickers underneath. Once you do notice it, though, it becomes pretty much all you can see, doesn’t it? On anyone else, a wardrobe malfunction that would leave you lying awake at night thinking, "Oh God, what was I thinking?" On Heidi Klum? Well, you decide…

      Wardrobe Malfunction or Adorably Quirky? Joss Stone in odd shoes at the 2008 “Imagine There’s No Hunger” campaign launch

      We’re not sure who made these shoes (any ideas?), so we can’t tell you whether they actually came like this, or whether Joss Stone here just bought two pairs and decided to mix it up a little. It’s the kind of thing Joss just might do, but then again, it’s the kind of thing some shoe designers we could mention just might do too, so we’re going to hold off on labeling this one a “wardrobe malfunction”, for now, at least. Wardrobe malunction or deliberate decision, though, what do you think of Joss’s look here? Does she look, as the Daily Mail commented, “like she got dressed in the dark”, or is she just working her own, quirky style, and…

      A Wardrobe Malfunction in the Making

      This Shopbop model’s looking mighty pleased with herself for someone who’s about to flash her boobies next time a flash goes off, no? And we’d really like to think that Jenni Kayne’s 3/4 sleeve t-shirt wasn’t designed to be worn with absolutely nothing underneath it, but given the appearance of some of the fashion criminals we pull in for questioning these days, we’re just not convinced that’s the case…

      Asymmetrical one shoulder dress: hands up if you want to flash your underwear!

      Created in the same mold as Norma Kamali’s ‘Modern Sculpture dress, this is another item of clothing that falls into the “wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen” category. Sure, it might be nice to be the centre of attention in this dress, with all eyes upon you as you strut your stuff on the dance floor, every man in the house praying that you’ll wave your hands in the air like you just don’t care, but ask yourself this: do you really want to spend the evening with one arm glued to your side, terrified that an ill-considered arm lift could result in the entire room seeing your undies? Of course, if you really don’t care, then you can buy it…

      Shoe Wardobe Malfunction: Sophie Monk

      A quick glance at this photo tells the practiced eye of The Fashion Police that there’s more than one fashion infringement going on here. Sophie Monk could clearly tell us a thing or two about tan lines, for instance, but it’s her shoes we want to focus in on, here. Her shoes, and the way her toes are hanging out of them. Because sure, they’re great shoes, but…. ouch. That looks painful. And we don’t know why, but every time we look at her poor little toe hangin’ out all by itself in the picture on the left, it makes us laugh like schoolgirls. The lesson, once again: well fitting clothes and shoes will never go out of fashion. Sophie,…

      Phoebe Price in close brush with wardrobe malfunction

      Oh great, this is just what we needed to see on a Friday afternoon – a dress that makes the eye go straight to the crotch, without passing ‘Go’ or, indeed, collection $200. Congratulations, Phoebe Price – your work here is done now. You have finally found the dress that allows you to have wardrobe malfunctions all day long, without having to wait around for a convenient gust of wind. We’re pretty sure you achieved this by going out wearing just a top, too. Let’s just hope you took your mother’s advice and wore some clean knickers. Or any knickers….

      Rachael Ray offers up more proof that boobs are “back”

      This is fact becoming one of our biggest fashion pet peeves of the moment. It’s the "Whoops, my boobs could just pop right out of this dress any second!" look, and it involves wearing super low-cut dresses or tops in flimsy fabrics, and then letting your breasts just flop right out of them. No, it’s nothing new, but there’s been a bit of a spate of it recently, and seriously, what’s up with that? Now, we have nothing against breasts per se, and we’re not for one second suggesting that everyone should get all Victorian on us and go around buttoned up to the neck, but even assuming that Rachael Ray is, indeed, wearing tit tape to keep this dress…

      Wardrobe Malfunction: Princess Caroline of Hanover

      Across the world tonight, thousands of little girls are abandoning their dream of one day being a princess, thanks to this picture of Princess Caroline of Hanover. Well, you wouldn’t want to marry royalty if it meant walking around in a dress like this, would you? It may be Chanel, but seriously, is that her nipple we can see there? Is this any way for a Princess to dress? WHAT WOULD PRINCESS GRACE SAY? To be completely honest, the phrase "wardrobe malfunction" isn’t even strong enough to sum this up. It’s like her wardrobe went into complete and utter meltdown. Also: there appears to be a creepy "third arm" in this picture, and we can’t quite work it out, but…

      Wardrobe Malfunction: Patsy Kensit also forgets bra

      Just what is it that celebrities have against bras, we wonder? This the second "no bra" wardrobe malfunction The Fashion Police have been called out to today, and while we reckon Patsy Kensit probably didn’t realise this top would be rendered see-through by the camera flash when she chose it, we’re wondering if ignorance is really a good enough excuse in these situations, because seriously, is it really so hard to remember to stick on a bra under your semi-sheer clothes? Good underwear: it’s every woman’s friend. Now, would someone please tell Patsy and Mischa…

      Wardrobe Malfunction: Mischa Barton’s almost-nipple-slip

      Mischa Barton has dealt with her wrinkled crotch issue. We’re glad. But now it’s time for Mischa to concentrate on the top half of her body: the part she was spotted almost-flashing yesterday while out shopping in a loose top with no bra. Why no bra, Mischa? This is almost asking for a wardrobe malfunction: it’s bad enough when you’re just walking along and we can see your boobs making a desperate bid for freedom out of the sides of your top, but when you bend over? Well, it’s almost indecent, isn’t it?

      Wardrobe Malfunction: Amy Winehouse’s builder’s butt

      We haven’t been paying much attention to Amy Winehouse and her many wardrobe malfunctions lately, for the simple reason that we reckon The Fashion Police are the least of Amy’s worries around about now. But even with the best will in the world, we just can’t ignore displays like this one, which, let’s face it, just aren’t the kind of thing we’d expect from a well-bred young lady, aren’t they? Amy, we’ve been turning a blind eye to your wardrobe malfunctions lately, but we’re starting to think you’re taking advantage of our leniency. And while we’re pleased to see that you’ve ditched the ol’ visible thong, its absence is raising uncomfortable questions about just what the hell you’re wearing underneath…

      Wardrobe Malfunctions for Kate Hudson and Camila Alves at the Fool’s Gold Premiere

      Poor Kate Hudson and Camila Alves (girlfriend of Matthew McConaughey) – the wind got the better of them at last night’s Fool’s Gold premiere, leaving them looking a little less groomed than they would probably have liked. Wind-induced wardrobe malfunctions aside, though, what does everyone think of Kate’s electric blue dress? We kinda like the style, but we’re hoping that pouching round the stomach was caused by the wind, because if it’s just a feature of the dress, or an ill-fit, it seems to be almost inviting all of those "OMG, Kate Hudson is pregnant!" rumours that have already started circulating…
