This week's wardrobe malfunctions (and close calls) gave us the typical blunders but with some lethal twists. We've seen a lot of décolletage in the past few days on the court, the runway and even twitter. Not even the bitter cold weather could stop the daring from going out in their pasties, bra-tops and mini dresses.
Check out the slideshow below to see just who tempted the wardrobe gods this week.
Khloe Kardashian almost had <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2012/11/01/x-factor-usa-khloe-kardashian-nipple-mishap_n_2055471.html">a second wardrobe malfunction</a> on "X Factor" at the Finalists Party. Her little black dress seemed to be too little because it rode up throughout the night. That definitely could not have been pleasant... These <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/06/07/kim-kardashian-wardrobe-malfunction_n_1576932.html">Kardashian girls</a> need to start doing mirror checks!
As the third gal to end up on our list for wearing a bra as a top (<a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/13/miley-cyrus-bra-jay-leno-style-photos-pictures-hot_n_1963778.html">Miley Cyrus</a> and<a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/15/kim-kardashian-bra-photos-pictures-bikini_n_1966395.html"> Kim Kardashian</a> being the bold ladies before her) the look still hasn't won us over. Actress Kristen Stewart donned the aforementioned item to the "On The Road" premiere during the 2012 AFI Fest, <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/04/kristen-stewart-pictures-photos-style-outfit-balenciaga_n_2071858.html">and the outfit received mixed reviews</a>. The top (which also had cutouts on the sides) made us nervous. We've concluded that the red carpet (and its proximity to photographers with flashbulbs) is probably not the best place for bearing so much skin.
We love <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/04/christina-hendricks-interview-full-figured_n_1940469.html?utm_hp_ref=christina-hendricks">Christina Hendricks' curves</a> and we love even more that the actress is <a href="http://www.salon.com/2012/09/25/cleavages_coming_out_party/">not shy about showing them off</a>. But she definitely tempts the wardrobe gods when she does! At the "Ginger and Rosa" screening at the AFI Fest, Hendricks wore a low-cut dress that really displayed her...ahem...assets. The cleavage-baring number made us worry that there could have been a malfunction at any moment.
<a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/27/batman-marion-cotillard-photo_n_2017523.html">Chic</a> (and typically conservative) dresser, Marion Cotillard, arrived at the premiere of "Rust and Bone" during the 2012 AFI Fest in a risque number that showed off a lot of leg. We thought the French actress looked great in the <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/08/24/rashida-jones-gets-into-t_n_935628.html">color-blocked</a> dress but if a wind blew she would've been in trouble!
We expected to see a lot of skin on the <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/08/victorias-secret-fashion-2012_n_2091986.html?utm_hp_ref=victorias-secret">2012 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show runway</a> (<a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/08/victoria-secret-fashion-show-2012_n_2089435.html">even backstage</a>) but we were shocked with all the fate-tempting outfits the models chose to wear on the pink carpet. Model Magdalena Frackowiak opted for a black cut out number that definitely would have been a total fail without some double sided tape.
Model and host of MTV's "<a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/09/06/house-of-style-hosts-karlie-kloss-joan-smalls_n_1863089.html">House of Style</a>" Joan Smalls has <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/27/wardrobe-malfunctions-photos_n_2026153.html">landed on our list for the second week in a row</a> for going sheer <em>again</em>. Smalls attended the 2012 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show after party in a black mesh cage dress that looked like it was taken from <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/06/salma-hayek-madonna-tour-style-photos-pictures_n_1944819.html">Madonna's (skin baring) tour</a> -- she's basically wearing lingerie. Joan, you have a great bod, but didn't you show off your undies enough in the show?
Izabel Goulart has made some <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/09/20/izabel-goulart-brazil-foundation-gala-2011_n_971322.html">questionable fashion choices</a> before, but the Brazilian model seems to have taken inspiration from famous pasty wearers <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/06/30/celebrity-pasties-lady-gaga-lil-kim-pasty_n_1632201.html">Lil' Kim</a> and <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/23/nicki-minaj-pasties-photos_n_2005575.html">Nicki Minaj </a> for this skin-baring ensemble at the Victoria's Secret show after party. Word to the wise: beware the single pasty!
Model Candice Swanepoel, who is oft spotted <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/04/candice-swanepoel-bikini-body_n_1649074.html">baring skin even when off duty</a>, went for a tight, high cut dress that revealed that the South African model was going commando...at a party celebrating underwear! She's obviously known for her body, but that is one wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen.
