This week's wardrobe malfunctions (and close calls) gave us the typical blunders but with some lethal twists. We thought that, since the weather is cooling down and coats are coming out, we'd see less celebrity skin this week. But celebs still showed off their stuff in daring (and super revealing) ensembles. Maybe it's a last hurrah before the winter season?
All the M.V.P.s of the bare-all club were out this week. Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus and Taylor Momsen, veterans of the infamous bra top and panty flash, uped their game in fate-tempting looks that even shocked us! Check out the slideshow to see our picks for who else came closest to a fashion fail.
The always <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/02/26/gwyneth-paltrow-oscars-2012-dress_n_1302888.html">chicly-dressed</a> Gwyneth Paltrow showed us a different side of herself in a cutout dress at the <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/16/golden-heart-gala-gwyneth-paltrow-anna-wintour-photos_n_1971067.html?utm_hp_ref=gwyneth-paltrow">Golden Heart Awards Celebration</a>. We don't know how she did it, but she managed to wear the complicated number without a slip and totally<a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/16/gwyneth-paltrow-hot-sexy-dress-photos_n_1971445.html?utm_hp_ref=gwyneth-paltrow"> rocked it</a>! You don't become the <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/09/12/best-dressed-of-2012-gwyneth-paltrow_n_1878652.html?utm_hp_ref=gwyneth-paltrow">world's best dressed woman</a> without knowing a thing or two about preventing wardrobe malfunctions after all.
Although we were big fans of Katy Perry's <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/14/katy-perry-hot-sexy-photos-pictures-cleavage_n_1965063.html">sexy plunging number</a> at Comedy Central's Night of Too Many Stars on October 13, we noticed that the singer was in wardrobe-malfunction-prevention-mode all night. While greeting fans outside the event, she often clasped her chest to prevent revealing too much to the crowd. A <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/14/katy-perry-hot-sexy-photos-pictures-cleavage_n_1965063.html">veteran risque dresser</a>, Katy made it through the night without a mishap, but she was definitely tempting fate!
An <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/17/kim-kardashian-fashion-faux-pas_n_1973253.html?utm_hp_ref=style&ir=Style">unfortunate mustard colored jacket</a> wasn't Kim Kardashian's only fashion flub this week. The reality star also wore a sheer skirt (<a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/15/kim-kardashian-bra-photos-pictures-bikini_n_1966395.html?utm_hp_ref=the-kardashians">sans underwear</a>) to dinner in Miami with her bf (and <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/08/24/kim-kardashian-closet-kanye-west_n_1828664.html">style consultant</a>) Kanye West. Sheer skirt aside why are you wearing a sports bra to dinner Kim? This was a double malfunction waiting to happen.
Kid star-turned-<a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/09/12/miley-cyrus-style-hair-photos-pictures-liam-hemsworth-2012_n_1877093.html?utm_hp_ref=miley-cyrus">sartorial-rebel</a> Miley Cyrus went on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno" on October 12th looking<a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/13/miley-cyrus-bra-jay-leno-style-photos-pictures-hot_n_1963778.html">...a bit under-dressed</a>. We were just getting used to the new, <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/09/06/miley-cyrus-vma-dress-2012-mtv-vmas-photos_n_1863097.html?utm_hp_ref=miley-cyrus">glammed-up Miley</a>, but it looks like she's back to her<a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/08/24/miley-cyrus-cigarette-haircut-bra_n_1828156.html"> bra-bearing</a> ways.
Kylie Minogue certainly enjoys to flaunting one <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2012/09/26/kylie-bum-video_n_1915938.html?utm_hp_ref=kylie-minogue"> asset</a> in particular. So when she attended the "Holy Motors" premiere at the 50th New York Film Festival, she didn't pass up the opportunity to flaunt her stuff. The 44 year old Aussie singer looked radiant in an emerald green gown but, with only a leotard underneath, it definitely caused some jaws to drop. That was a close one, Kylie!
Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Kate Upton has never been shy about <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/08/08/kate-upton-nude-photos-pictures-contributor-magazine_n_1756934.html?utm_hp_ref=kate-upton">showing off</a> her <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/07/kate-upton-criticism-cannibal_n_1655936.html?utm_hp_ref=kate-upton">healthy bod</a>. The dress she wore to the "No" premiere on October 12 definitely displayed her <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/16/kate-upton-responds-fat-comments_n_1676226.html?utm_hp_ref=kate-upton">awesome curves</a> -- a little too well. We were worried the navy strapless number would fall down and turn into a full-on malfunction! Luckily, it was only a close call. <a href="http://www.salon.com/2012/09/25/cleavages_coming_out_party/">Busty ladies</a> take note: go strapless with caution.
Since the whole world has seen <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/10/22/taylor-momsen-flashes-her_n_772475.html?utm_hp_ref=taylor-momsen"><em>a lot</em> of Taylor Momsen</a> (on more than <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/14/taylor-momsen-naked-in-new-video-the-pretty-reckless_n_1965380.html?utm_hp_ref=taylor-momsen">one occasion</a>) you would think that <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/08/16/taylor-momsen-i-quit-acti_n_928130.html?utm_hp_ref=taylor-momsen">the actress-turned-singer </a>would be discouraged from wearing barely-there clothing. But on <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/16/taylor-momsen-gossip-girl_n_1971195.html?utm_hp_ref=taylor-momsen">the set of Gossip Girl</a> this week, Taylor's <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/06/23/taylor-momsen-16-performs_n_622172.html">trademark stems </a>were on full display in a short, partially-sheer nude dress. Maybe she really is <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/04/22/taylor-momsen-explains-he_n_548574.html">allergic to pants</a>.
Marion Cotillard likes to keep hemlines <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/06/07/marion-cotillard_n_872747.html#s288856">short</a>. And with legs like <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/10/13/marion-cotillard-topless-rust-and-bone_n_1008874.html">hers</a>, can you blame her? Marion's dress at the "Rust and Bone" London premiere, which was short at the front and long at the back, was a panty-flash in the making. Luckily, the French actress narrowly escaped an <a href="http://www.salon.com/2008/11/25/upskirting/">upskirt </a>.
