Wardrobe Malfunction, What’s Your Function?
Hmmm. There’s been another Wardrobe Malfunction. I’m getting suspicious.
In case you missed it, Dakota Johnson (of Fifty Shades of Grey fame) had a wardrobe malfunction at this week’s People’s Choice Awards when her dress “broke” following her acceptance speech hug with Leslie Mann.
Johnson quipped, “”Well, it’s not like nobody here hasn’t already seen my boobs.” True dat, Dakota.
It is a brilliant way to get your name out there, to be sure. As the saying goes, “any press is good press.” Johnson benefitted from a fresh wave of publicity due to this event.
To refresh your memory, Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake were the forefathers (forepeople?) of the Wardrobe Malfunction. They paved the way for future starlets everywhere with their unforgettable 2004 Super Bowl Halftime Show Nip Slip. It was a moment many will never forget…in fact, I remember just where I was when I saw it.
Miley Cyrus has made a side career of the flash game. She has had so many malfunctions, we have lost count. It’s just become who she is, and don’t think for a minute it is not typically premeditated. She has mastered the #sorrynotsorry without a doubt.
There are, however, some innocent victims of wardrobe malfunctions. Truly unfortunate and unwitting individuals, with no hidden agenda (no pun intended). I’m certain Jennifer Garner did not want the world to see her Spanx.
