It seems to have become popular among red carpet goers to display a generous amount of what has been dubbed as 'side-boob'. Inspired by this, we have decided to come up with our top ten revealing celebrities, assessing who we think definitely has too much on show, and who is teetering on the edge of a serious wardrobe malfunction while still managing to look elegant all the same.
10. Taylor Swift
The pop-country singer seemed rather daring by her standards at the People's Choice Awards 2013 on Wednesday (January 9th 2013) as she turned up with swept back hair and a floor skimming white dress with a plunging (and I mean PLUNGING!) neckline that almost showed off her belly button. However, even after attempting to wrestle her Favourite Country Artist award from Olivia Munn's hands, the dress never caused any wardrobe disasters. It was a far cry from her usual girly but conservative frocks but perhaps her recent split from 1D's Harry Styles has brought out her feisty side.
9. Emma Watson
The former 'Harry Potter' star proved she was no wallflower in her mini white gown at the New York premiere for 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower' in September 2012. She was largely considered a young and sensible golden girl while in the 'Harry Potter' movies but her recent career ventures and this major side-boob revealing frock seems to have been her attempt to prove that she has transformed from a nerdy schoolgirl into a woman. It doesn't work all the time though, as the 22-year-old was recently stopped by Immigration officials at the JFK airport for not being accompanied by an adult.
Okay, so we know that this v-neck black number isn't exactly head-turningly daring in the boob department, but we reckon it's probably not appropriate dress for carrying two small children. The reality star's nephew Mason looks to be in cahoots with the paparazzi as he grabs at the neckline as if attempting to bring some much needed press attention to Auntie Kim's ample chest. We think she probably only narrowly avoided an awkward incident outside Miami's Children's Museum.
Not even the over-elaborate patterned dress was enough to distract from 'The Notebook' star's mega side-boob moment on the red carpet at the UK premiere of 'Morning Glory' in 2011. Don't be fooled by the innocent dimples and dazzling smile; this girl is not afraid to flash the flesh. However, we think she suits the look with her slender frame and she definitely deserves some credit for managing not to have an embarrassing slip the whole night. And, having had red carpet wardrobe malfunctions in the past, we can't help but applaud her bravery.
We have to say that the 'Mean Girls' actress only just makes our 'JUST enough boob' list. The neckline on this spangled silver catsuit at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards is a little too low for comfort although she still manages to look fabulous on the red carpet as usual. And after all, we've seen a lot more shocking outfits from this infamous party girl and it's not exactly the main thing that lends to her notoriety. Aside from past jail sentences and drug problems, Li-Lo is still on informal probation after stealing from a jewellery store in 2011 and, most recently, she was in trouble for lying to the police about a traffic accident and punching a woman who she called a 'gypsy' at a bar. With that background, her uber-cleavage seems hardly worth mentioning!
5. Miley Cyrus
Okay Miley, we know you're not Hannah Montana anymore, but becoming a woman does not mean throwing away your bra! The actress certainly decided that less was more when it came to her blazer style dress at 2012 Billboard Music Awards, but we have to disagree; her bouffant hair-do was definitely the only thing right about this look (though now she's got rid of that too!). It seems to be common amongst child stars to attempt to establish their womanhood by showing off their assets by verging on public indecency; however, we think in this case, Miley's sophistication is at an all-time low.
J-Lo's stylist must've forgotten to drill the star on proper car exiting techniques prior to the 2012 Vanity Fair Oscar Party, the most obvious being 'Don't bend over'. Though, considering the numerous nip slips she's suffered in the past while trying to show off her famous curves (most recently in October 2012 where she accidentally flashed on stage at the O2 Arena in London), she should know the safety procedures by now. A tighter fit would've been the best bet for getting over the car exit obstacle and a little more sophistication in the neckline department.
3. Nicki Minaj
We know Nicki Minaj has various alter-egos, but we think while she's busy giving herself names she should name her boobs too, given that they always seem so eager to come out and introduce themselves. This garish outfit she wore while performing on ABC's 'Good Morning America' did not take the attention away from the serious cleavage she was revealing in her turquoise bra top. There were even reports that she did indeed suffer a nip slip halfway through her performance but, unfortunately, we think it will take more than that to stop the singer thinking up more brassy outfit combinations.
2. Lady GaGa
We might be gaga for her music but we regret to say that we can't say the same about her dress sense. Apart from looking a little like a trussed up chicken in this strappy get up, she clearly has no objections to exposing her breasts with a see through bra-style top half. This doesn't even count as a wardrobe malfunction; it's way too deliberate for that category. Not that we've got anything against see-through outfits; Anne Hathaway looked stunning in a sheer floral number at the 2012 New York City Ballet Gala; we just seriously object to seeing major nippleage in a public place.
1. Rita Ora
Rita Ora has got to be our number one boob of all time. Less of a nipple slip and more of a full boob exposure, this star's incident took place on stage during the Red Bull Culture Clash at London's Wembley Arena when she wore a zip up biker jacket minus underwear. So embarrassed was she about the occasion that she took to Twitter to apologise to her stunned fans: 'Yes. It's true. I got straight off a motorbike from O2 to Wembley. I didn't have time to change and then all of a sudden the zip got lower and lower, I rushed on stage and pop!'. We have to say, this was definitely way too much boob for us!
