Wardrobe malfunction! This may not be an unusual term for fashion & celebrity followers these days. This has become a buzz word for the celebrity lifestyle. Can you remember Janet Jackson’s 2004 Super Bowl performance alongside Justin Timberlake? Yes, ever since that nip slip has occurred, it seems celebrities have taken it as the easiest and simplest way of getting into the limelight because “any publicity is good publicity”. Wearing revealing outfits at public places, celebrity gatherings and at award functions make them media frenzy.
Wardrobe malfunctions are quite a common occurrence in the life of Hollywood celebrities. Starting from nip slips to crotch shots are common. Nobody is sure whether it happens genuinely or it is a publicity stunt orchestrated smartly. Talking about wardrobe malfunctions, it can be really embarrassing for a person especially when you are a celebrity and all eyes are directed at you.
Wardrobe malfunctions are found to be quite common in ramp shows, Red Carpet walks and celebrity parties which give the celebrities an instant spotlight with ample fodder to paparazzi for snaps. Some of the occurrences are completely unintentional whereas some are extremely embarrassing to be spontaneous. After such incidents, the celebrity or model is sure to become the talk of the town and the biggest beneficiary is the fashion show.

The best of designers and top models are becoming the topics of most vicious gossips due to wardrobe malfunctions. Spontaneous or not-so-spontaneous incidents make celebrity shows most watched and talked in media and elsewhere.
