Happens to the best of us.

Words by

Tabatha Turner

They happen to models on the catwalk, actors on the red carpet and singers on stage. As much as we would like to think wardrobe malfunctions are only a part of the inner perils of our worst nightmares, they happen. And to the best of us.

But in real life, everyday circumstances, us ‘normal people’ have no PR team to take the bullet and write off such embarassments as 'totally planned' and 'strategic'. We are left to grunt and bear the inner earthquake of humiliation while covering our blushing faces with a good laugh, a readjustment and perhaps a large glass of pinot.

We reminisced with the fash pack outside VAMFF about past mishaps, malfunctions and worst wardrobe nightmares.
