Kim Kardashian, Cheryl Cole: Top 10 boob-baring, pant flashing, dress splitting celebrity wardrobe malfunctions, EVER

When fashion fights back! Let’s take a trip behind-the seams, to a place full of ripped dresses, Kim Kardashian’s undies and a whole lot of troublesome t*t tape…

Celebrities, they’re just like us. Very well-groomed, very wealthy, very famous versions  of us. Oh, who are we kidding? They bathe in liquid gold and wear clothes knitted by unicorns and fairies.

But that doesn’t stop them from suffering from the MOTHER OF ALL WARDROBE MALFUNCTIONS, every once in a while.

Cheryl Cole, Kim Kardashian, Judy Finnigan (we’re going somewhere with this, honest) … they’ve all fallen foul of an accidental boob / bum / crack flash – whether it’s caused by a split dress here, broken zip there or a tragic piece of t*t tape, desperate for its 15 minutes of fame.

While us mere mortals can de-tag the evidence, most celebs will never forget the time their Alexander Wang frock popped open on the red carpet, and out spilled their Wangs…

Mainly because they’ve tweeted it out to the world before you can squeal WARDROBE MALFUNCTION!

Take a look at the Top 16 celebrity fashion fails of all time below, laugh, then check your zips. Just to be on the safe side.

Celebrity dresses, ripped at the seams*

Quick, click on the arrow above before you lose the ability to shake this image off. (Also, make a note to never a) wear a dress which looks like you have a napkin tucked in you knickers b) stand anywhere windy and/or turn to the lift and c) WEAR KNICKERS. ALWAYS WEAR KNICKERS.

A time when real talent was recognised and the world looked up to the likes of... well, swimmer Flavia Zoccari.

Okay, this happened in 2008, but Flavia's cossie-cossie swimming cossie split still makes our sides split, a bit.
