Golden Globes’ most dramatic wardrobe malfunctions

Those thigh-high splits will get you every time.

There’s nothing worse than experiencing a wardrobe malfunction, but something tells us enduring one in front of hundreds of photographers and millions of viewers.

Be it a pair of nipple covers that were meant to make you look demure but end up making a surprise appearance or a gust of wind that turns you into Marilyn Monroe, the stars have been through it all on the red carpet.
