WTF Fashion: See Through Dresses and Red Carpet Nip Slips (NSFW)

Sometimes a nip slip is just a nip slip – a poorly chosen fabric or unfortunately times fabric slip that exposes more than a celebrity was intending. Other times, stars hit the red carpet seemingly intent on baring their breasts, their butt and anything else they think people might want to see. Either way, nothing gets the cameras flashing and a star’s name in the headlines quite like a little exposed skin. Sometimes, that’s the whole point. I’ve separated this list into three different categories: nip slips, wardrobe malfunctions and publicity stunts. For the record, I’m focusing entirely on red carpet incidents – not things that happened on stage (such as Janet Jackson’s ‘nip slip’) or candid shots (such as Britney Spears’ infamous crotch shot). Finally, all images are via Getty Images. Enjoy!

The Nip Slips

For this category, I went for images where the nipple just sort of peeked out from the edge of the shirt or dress neckline. Sheer tops and dresses are, for the most part, included under wardrobe malfunctions for reasons I’ll talk about when we get to that section. Some of these nip slips were honest accidents and some of them were bound to happen as soon as the outfit was chosen.

The Wardrobe Malfunctions

Now, wardrobe malfunctions are a little complicated. Let me tell you why. It can be incredibly difficult to tell the difference between a wardrobe malfunction and a full on publicity stunt. In the case of Janet Jackson, for example, she claimed her boobie popping out during her performance with Justin Timberlake at the Super Bowl half time show was a ‘wardrobe malfunction’ but many viewers, myself included, felt it was probably more of a publicity stunt. If it was a publicity stunt, it worked. Janet’s boob and that nipple shield thing she was wearing on it was all over the news the next day and continues to be talked about on a fairly regular basis.

On the other side of the coin, sometimes a lady hits the red carpet thinking she’s wearing a perfectly acceptable dress only to learn that it becomes completely sheer under certain light. I always felt that, “but it looked okay in the mirror” excuse was a bit lame – until, of course, I was caught in a similar situation myself. I put on my brand new skirt and gave it a once over in the mirror. Feeling like I looked alright, I headed out to the bar for a drink and some dancing. Imagine my surprise when my friend grabbed me and pulled me off the dance floor only a few moments into the first song and informed me that my cute new skirt was completely see through. Yes, my friends, it happens. Is that the case for all these women? Well, that’s up for debate. Click through the photos and decide for yourself.

The Publicity Stunts

There is absolutely no question here. These ladies put these outfits on knowing full well what they were doing – getting people talking. I suppose that isn’t entirely true. There are a few ladies in the gallery that may not have intended to show quite as much skin as they did but it’s very hard to believe that’s the case. I mean, there’s questionable fabric and then there’s fabric that is very obviously see through and there’s just no question about it.
