Now that's what you call a wardrobe malfunction! The moment a model's dress slips to reveal nipples on New York catwalk
It is a moment that for most women would be the stuff of nightmares.
Yesterday, a model on the Gemma Kahng catwalk at New York fashion week suffered the ultimate wardrobe malfunction when her dress slipped down to reveal her breasts.
Seemingly unaware, the model strutted on, until a cool breeze must have alerted her to the incident. Only then did the model reach down and attempt to readjust the garment.
Blissfully ignorant: The model starts her walk down the runway, seemingly unaware her dress has slipped down
Her modesty recovered and dignity somewhat protected, the model continued her walk seemingly unfazed.

slip-up happening to them in front of a global audience would send them

This way round, the designer gets
headlines – meaning a relatively low profile, off-schedule show such as
this one becomes international news.
The model becomes the focus of the show – and not for something they have done wrong – propelling them to some form of stardom.
And unlike the engineered nipple slip from the Janet Jackson/Super Bowl debacle, for instance, no one is really to blame.
Everyone comes up smelling of roses. It's a wonder they don't happen more often…
