Madonna's Cape, Lenny's Leather + The 6 Most Major Celebrity Wardrobe Malfunctions

Madonna's Cape, Lenny's Leather + The 6 Most Major Celebrity Wardrobe Malfunctions

Oh Lenny... We look back at the most embarrassing wardrobe malfunctions of all time

Celebrity wardrobe malfunctions happen all the time. From a dangerous gust of wind to a photographer’s flash exposing a lot more than we wanted to see, you can normally laugh off a nip-slip - but THESE celebrity wardrobe malfunctions?! Oh. My. Gosh.

So after Madonna’s terrible track record with intricate neck gear (LEAVE THE CAPES ALONE!), take a look back at the worst celebrity wardrobe malfunctions of all time.

Madonna’s Vicious Veil
You’d have thought Madonna would have learned her lesson after that cape catastrophe (more on that later), but oh no. On stage in Taiwan, Madge got stuck in a bridal veil while performing Material Girl, nearly losing her balance. We wouldn’t want to be one of her dancers after the look she gave them at the end…

J-Lo’s Sartorial Split
Can you work it too hard? Jennifer Lopez might have, splitting her silver jumpsuit while performing in Las Vegas. After singing On The Floor, J-Lo took a bow and that booty broke her jumpsuit. Jenny dealt with the malfunction like a pro, of course.

Madonna’s Cape Crisis
It was the wardrobe malfunction that has us ALL gasping – Madonna falling off stage after being strangled by her Armani cape was not what we expected from the Brits 2015. Madonna’s very understanding response to the drama? “I had two choices, I could either be strangled or fall, and I chose to fall…”

Lenny Kravitz’s Trouser Trouble
Tight leather trousers + a badly angled stage squat = the biggest rock wardrobe malfunction of 2015. Turns out, Lenny doesn’t like wearing underwear, and it shows… This video is so NSFW, but you can watch it here if you're brave enough. 

Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake’s Nip Slip
This old-school incident is where the term ‘wardrobe malfunction’ originally came from! Justin and Janet got into a lot of trouble at the 2004 Super Bowl half-time show, after Justin “accidentally” ripped off Janet’s top to expose a lot more than a nipple piercing. 

Kate Moss’s Rip-Roaring Night Out
Nobody parties like Kate Moss, but when she’s out with Courtney Love?! Crazy things happen. Courtney literally put her foot in it, stamping on Kate’s vintage couture gown and ripping it to shreds. In true Kate fashion, she tied up the dress and carried on until 3am. 

Mariah Carey’s Dress Drama
What do you do when your dress pops open on live TV? 1. Call out the designer. 2. Get help from your co-presenter. 3. Get your wardrobe assistant to literally stitch you back in to the dress. World, we can all learn from Mariah.
