After Khloé Kardashian Odom flashed a bit of boob on Fox News yesterday, we had flashbacks to some of our favorite wardrobe malfunctions—nip slips, panty-free party pics and that Super Bowl surprise.

Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton and Britney Spears all make the cut, of course, but some unexpected celebs have had public nip slippage, too—including some exposing while posing on the red carpet. 

Here are our picks for most shocking wardrobe malfunctions...

1. Janet Jackson's Nipplegate: The world saw Janet's bejeweled boob in 2004 when Justin Timberlake tore her top off in a halftime performance.The flash lasted under a second before Janet threw her hand up over her nipple, but it was long enough to cause major drama, with the two singers falling out over the incident and the FCC suing CBS over the incident.

2. Britney Spears' Lack of Underwear: This one-time serial flasher was at the height of her pantyless fame in 2006, when more than one paparazzi shot revealed that she was not wearing any underpants. Thankfully, the FCC did not intervene here and the singer eventually covered up.

3. Tara Reid's Red Carpet Nightmare: The American Pie trainwreck admitted she was "smiling like an idiot" while her left boob was exposed to photographers on the red carpet at Diddy's 35th birthday party in 2004. The actress has publicly stated that she was upset at the photogs who continued to snap away while her publicist rushed to her aid.

4. Paris Hilton's "Blind" Boobage: Sure, there's probably no part left of the heiress' parts that we haven't seen, but this particular moment stands out . While shooting the video for "Stars are Blind," Hilton was snapped rolling in the sand in a purple one-piece bathing suit when—oops!—her boob pops out for all to see.

5. Lady Gaga's Popped Top: In a teal wig and black bustier dress, the crazily clad singer was honored as a style icon at this week's CFDA Awards in New York. But while posing dramatically for photogs with arms raised, the move caused her Lady parts to pop out, exposing the "Born This Way" singer's topless self to the crowd.


6. Alexandra Kerry's Little (to The Imagination) Black Dress: Former presidential candidate John Kerry got lots of unwanted attention after his daughter donned a more-translucent-than-she-thought black dress to the Cannes Film Festival in 2004. Photogs snapped away, quickly discovering that under harsh flashbulbs, the long number was almost completely see through and exposed Kerry's whole body. Although she was (thankfully) wearing underwear.

7. Anna Nicole Smith's Breast in Show: While we were used to seeing the former Playboy model's private parts, the late star gave us a shock to remember when she suffered a wardrobe malfunction while announcing the winner of the Hottest Character Awards during the G-Phoria Awards show in 2004. After the left side of her gold colored dress dropped off her shoulder, the reality star quickly covered up.

8. Lindsay Lohan Laughs It Off: LiLo seemed not to have a care in the world as she frolicked in the surf in Miami causing her bikini top to fall down. This one is notable because Lohan grabbed herself and laughed the nip slip off.

9. Kirsten Dunst's Teenie Top Trouble: In 2005 we got a look at the Spider-Man actress' Mary Janes when she was was caught in the ocean with a shifting bikini top (not the perfectly fine one she's wearing in the pic above) that exposed her top half. The actress' spidey sense wasn't tingling as didn't seem to realize the slip even as she jogged out of the water.


10. Claire Danes' Classy Cleavage: Is there such a thing as a tasteful nip slip? If so, this one makes the cut. In 2007 Danes appeared on MTV in jeans and a low-cut nude colored top and while she leaned forward to discuss her film Stardust, she accidentally exposed a bra-less nipple. Nothing compared to these other trainwrecks, but still a bit of a shock coming from the tasteful actress.
