No matter what has happened to you, it is not uncommon for things to go wrong when we least expect them. Luckily, unless you are a celebrity, there aren’t usually tens of thousands of people seeing you when you are embarrassed, as it would be an uncomfortable experience for most. I believe this is one of the few times where I feel sorry for celebrities.

We’ll start off with a mild malfunction.
Fans were quick to spot that Meghan (or more likely, her stylist) forgot to take the sale’s tag off of the bottom of her dress. To be fair, it’s an odd spot for those tags, so we can hardly blame either of them.
And hey, at the end of the day, she’s a Duchess and we’re all just peasants, so who are we to judge?

Ladies, we’ve all been here, right?
Wearing a dress or a skirt on a windy day is a risky move, and Elizabeth proved to be a friendly reminder of this.
We’re not kidding, breezes don’t play.

A.N.T Farm actress, Stefanie Scott, served as just another reminder that dresses and wind are not a great combination.
Which is a shame. Not everyone is out here looking for their Marilyn Monroe moment.

Because this girl has dealt with more than her fair share of wardrobe malfunctions.
There was the time that the slit in her dress ripped up “5 inches higher” than it should have been.
Rosamund Pike’s ripped dress.
While appearing on The Tonight Show, you could see horror grow across Rosamund’s face as she realizes the back of her dress has split open. “I might have just fallen apart from behind! My dress might have split,” she told Jimmy Fallon.
Fortunately, Jimmy put her at ease and joked that it was okay because he wasn’t wearing any pants.
Rosamund isn’t the only celeb to deal with a wardrobe malfunction during a talk show.

While performing live, the clasp on her top came undone and she had to basically cross her fingers that everything would stay in place.
She attempted to reach back and hold it closed, which kind of worked. Overall, things weren’t nearly as bad as they could have been, and she still slayed the stage.
The show must go on!

Britney Spears had a similar wardrobe malfunction when the back of her bodysuit came unzipped.
Her backup dancers tried their hardest to zip it back up, but Britney was moving and dancing — a lot. It made it nearly impossible for them to get a good grip, and so she shrugged it off and finished the performance with her back exposed.
