Wardrobe Malfunction, Anyone?

The lovely Grey's Anatomy and romantic comedy darling Katherine Heigl experienced a bit of a wardrobe malfunction in Las Vegas while accepting her 2010 ShoWest Female Star of the Year award. (Here's the VIDEO if you missed it.) Thankfully, she had help and handled the mishap as professionally as possible as she delivered her acceptance speech.
Why do you think something like an almost peek-a-boo boob moment so often makes the news? Is it because we like to see that even celebs in their designer finery sometimes experience snap failure like we do in our Target duds? Perhaps.
And that leads me to my next question. Have YOU ever had a wardrobe malfunction, whether a full reveal like Janet Jackson at SuperBowl XXVIII's halftime show, or a close call like Ms. Heigl?
Several accounts run through my mind, and believe me, I've learned my lessons:
1. Never wear a short fluffy skirt in Fort Collins, CO or anyplace notorious for sudden wind storms.
2. Never wear a string bikini while holding a toddler.
3. Never climb a barbed wire fence while on a date.
Do you have any rules to add?

Wow, I hadn't heard about that, and it was fun to watch the video, thanks!

The wardrobe malfuction from my life was with my wedding dress! It had spaghetti straps under a lacy cover, and during the reception, my cousin came up and whispered to me that one of the straps had snapped. And this NOT an inexpensive wedding dress, so goes to support your theory, Wendy, that it's not just the Target clothes that malfunction!

Thanks for sharing, Tina! I take it your cousin saved you in time, before something embarrassing happened! :)

On my first date in college, we climbed a chain link fence into a cemetary (to tell ghost stories, of course). I caught the seat of my jeans on the top of the fence, and ripped a big hole on the left side, right below my . . . back pocket, shall we say. My date (whom I barely knew) kept trying to "check to see if I was bleeding" since he was "going to be a doctor."

hi Jessica! Wow, that story sounds scarily like mine w/ the ripped-on-a-fence jeans on a date. You are one cool chick to tell ghost stories at a cemetery! :)

Hee... hilarious rules, Wendy! My only wardrobe malfunction is trying to walk in high heels. That is always good for a laugh. ;)
