It seems fashion faux pas are no longer limited to the likes of Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj. Following the Duchess of Cambridge’s uplifting moment last week when her skirt was whipped up by a gust of wind, Debenhams quizzed customers on the top ten most fearful fashion moments.
Over a quarter of women surveyed (26%) revealed that the dress in underwear moment was the most embarrassing of all, especially when it is pointed out by a stranger.
In second place, and often taking place in a restaurant or bar, is finding out that a trail of loo paper has stuck itself to the sole of your shoe.
Third place, with 12% of the votes, is discovering the blouse or dress you are wearing is in fact see-through, and that your old grey bra is actually on show to everyone.
Realising your top is on back to front halfway through the day is deemed the 4th most embarrassing moment by those polled, followed by the classic Marilyn Monroe skirt blowing up moment.
Leaving the price tag on your clothes for all to see, leaving your buttons/fly undone and the classic VPL blunder all also feature on the list.
More common in winter is the classic case of getting dressed in the dark which leads to a catastrophic clashing of garments. The least common mishap is wearing two different shoes by mistake, which 3% of women rated as their most embarrassing fashion moment.
Debenhams spokesperson Kate Thomas said: “In the lead up to the festive party season women are more conscious than ever about making fashion faux pas, especially at the office Christmas do or during any mischievous mistletoe moments.
“With everything else to think about over Christmas it’s likely these will happen so the best thing to do is laugh it off and style it out a’la Kate Middleton - after all it is the season to be jolly!”
Memorable celeb fashion mishaps include Judy Finnigan’s bra reveal, Janet Jackson’s superbowl boob moment, Gaga’s on-stage trouser split and Gwyneth Paltrow’s accidental see-through dress at the Iron Man 3 premiere.
