In an industry where it seems less is more when it comes to fashion, many celebs attempt various degrees of undress in order to get attention. They do it because you’re so bored with the usual, and have short attention spans—it’s ALL YOUR FAULT. Just kidding. But seriously, sometimes a low plunging neckline means headlines a la Jennifer Lopez in her infamous green Versace dress at the 2000 Grammys. Then sometimes it’s just one huge FAIL. And in recent years, those number of fails have skyrocketed!
Check out our gallery for 9 celebs who showed way too much and completely and utterly failed.
1. Adrienne Bailon
Remember when she wore that ruffled cream dress with the completely sheer bottom, and then it “shifted over” exposing her pantyless middle? She allegedly had a wardrobe malfunction, but later told Celebuzz, “If I could come out naked, I would. This is just some fancy stuff to throw over my little naked body.” Alrighty then, Adri. We still say fail though.
2. Melody Thornton
This former Pussycat Doll is super dedicated because she brings her burlesque stage act with her everywhere she goes. Even red carpet events like this year’s ELLE Women in Music event where she wore a completely see-through gown, which had her headlights on display. Despite the free peep-show, the material of the dress looked like grandma’s curtains mixed with seduction, and just didn’t compute. Total fail.
The pop star is no stranger to showing too much as she often pops up on the internet half—if not completely—naked. And when it’s not the net, she’s spotted on the streets in something questionable. The sheer knit top she wore in NYC earlier this year without a bra definitely goes on that list. The top was cute, but everyone was too distracted by her upstairs-outsideys.
4. Lil’ Kim
You know, for being so small, the pint-sized rapper sure goes big when it comes to her revealing fashion fails. She has so many that we could fill this whole slideshow with them, but for the sake of keeping it simple, we went with one of her more tame ones.
5. Jessica White
Jessica White makes it onto our fashion fails lists, regrettably, all too often. But the busty model’s red carpet ensemble choices are usually way too much; like her blue gown for the 2012 Jacobs Cure Gala featuring a crotch-high slit that flashed her black undies as she walked off swooping her massive train behind her.

Ashanti has more fails from showing too much this year that she we probably like to admit. But this sheer catsuit that showed off her not-so-fit figure really took the cake.
If we could turn back time, we’d elect to unsee this sheer bodysuit Cher broke out of the vault for the 2010 VMAs. Yeah, she’s an icon but this suit, that subtly showed her lady parts, makes her look like the gypsy, the tramp, AND the thief.
8. Coco T.
Just about anything Coco T. wears shows too much. She takes the cake with her um…cakes.
9. Lady Gaga
Yes, anything Lady Gaga comes out in is sheer and showing too much. But, she usually makes some feeble attempt to cover up her goodies. Like for last year’s CFDA Awards her dress barely capped the tops of her nipples. However, eventually, the dress went from sweetheart neckline to belt as the ill-fitting top slipped further and further down her chest.
