Is it me? Or does there seem to be more wardrobe malfunctions these days? DVR’s originated so that people could record their favorite show. Who would have thought that we would use them to view…and review…and view again our favorite celebrity’s clothes falling off, nipples popping out or skirts revealing nothing underneath?
While I am sure there were mishaps when I was young, the only one I can recall from way back when was the famous pose of Marilyn Monroe when she walked over the subway gate and her dress flew up. Nothing was exposed and Marilyn certainly struck a pose- one that has traveled through the decades but recently the citings have been more frequent and more telling. Here were five that I came up with…
1- Marilyn Monroe As mentioned before, Ms. Monroe starred in the movie The Seven Year Itch and the infamous scene of her standing over the subway grate and her skirt flying higher was part of the script. The picture of Marilyn holding down her dress that has been reprinted many times over throughout the decades was actually retaken at a studio. The original shots were taken at 1am with 5000 people watching. It has been noted that many of the shots were unusable because at that time it was considered inappropriate. Imagine that?
2- Tanisha Mukherjee, an actress, was caught walking down the street with this black dress that suddenly became a kiss and tell when the sun hit it giving new meaning to panty lines. Good thing for Ms. Mukherjee that her…hum..asset was just that. This picture unfortunately got better reviews than most of her movies.
3- Poor Britney Spears…went through her crazy time…who hasn’t …with the paparazzi only so ready to document it. I guess Ms. Spears wasn’t afraid of being in an accident since underwear was not a concern at all.
4- Probably most notable in recent times was the Superbowl in which Justin Timberlake “accidentally” ripped off the right section of Janet Jackson’s bustier. I don’t know about you but I don’t normally wear a star over my nipple. Whether it was planned or not, it has been documented to be one of the most reviewed DVR recording in history. Sorry guys…it’s hard for us to believe you are hanging onto the recording of the Superbowl from 2004.
5- Last and certainly not least is Jennifer Lopez who made everyone forget the costume and makeup presentation at the Academy Awards. Ms. Lopez looked stunning in her dress but the dress not only had people smiling in admiration but also scratching their heads on whether Jennifer was presenting more than an Oscar.
