Celebrity Wardrobe Malfunctions (PHOTOS)

Celebrity wardrobe malfunctions have become a relatively common occurrence in today's technology driven world.

While some bloopers are purely accidental, very tame and could happen to anyone -- a gust of wind blowing a skirt or an unladylike exit from a vehicle -- when the embarrassing moments happen to stars, it can make for some excellent water cooler talk for the rest of us.

There was a time, not too long ago, when it seemed every young girl Hollywood was purposefully being photographed from an unflattering angle, revealing some piece of an undergarment (or lack thereof) and although that trend has thankfully died down, we still often get to see the Spanx shot, nipple tape or wave-induced bathing suit blunder.

No one is safe from these embarrassing mishaps, wardrobe malfunctions know no boundaries. Regardless of their gender, age, shape, or size, celebrities at every level of fame can fall victim to a broken strap or see-through shirt.

From Elizabeth Banks' halfway zipped zipper to Justin Bieber's near tush-revealing wave, check out some of our favorite oops moments below!
