It may be the worst week ever (publicity wise) for Solange Knowles. Yesterday Solange, aka Beyonce's little sister, collapsed after downing Nyquil pills while awaiting a flight out of NYC. Before falling she had Twittered:
"I took a nyquil and think maybe im getting high off it because im not sleeping...everythings movvvviinngg slooooowww,lol."
The day before, the star also made the news after experiencing a bit of a "wardrobe malfunction" at Fashion Week that caused her to show off more than her cute outfit. Solange wore a sheer dress with a slip that covered her chest. However, the slip unexpectedly fell, exposing her left nipple for the world to see. (Sorry, you won't be seeing the somewhat scandalous photo in this post.)
In Solange's defense, she is a good girl and hasn't been known to show off her assets for fame, unlike some celebrities out there. So I think that we can rule out the possibility of this being a publicity stunt. Solange left the following comment on her Twitter about the incident:
"I always wear undies, never been carried out of the club drunk, I won't even pose for King (men's magazine) or any 'eye candy' type shoots and now look... My s**t on display for all the world to see... I'm wearing turtlenecks for the rest of the year."
(Side note: Girl, stop Twittering. Start Gathering!)
This whole incident leads me to think about celebrity wardrobe malfunctions in general. (Funny how it's become such a common phrase in pop culture, don't you think?) Solange's public embarrassment is really just a nip…opps, I mean a"blip"…on the radar compared to others'. Remember Janet Jackson at the Super Bowl? Or how about train wreck Tara Reid on the red carpet? Who do you think had the worst wardrobe malfunction?
But how does one have a wardrobe malfunction in the first place? I'm no prude, but I think that female celebrities should make it a point to put on a bra before leaving the house – or pasties at the very least– especially when they have cameras following you around.
Celebrities going braless – not hot.
