Katy Perry's 'Wardrobe Malfunction' at White House Correspondents' Dinner Couldn't Have Been an Accident

Say What!? 8

When celebrities get invited to the White House Correspondents' Dinner, they generally keep it classy -- i.e., not too much cleavage. Muted makeup. Long hemlines. Sleeves.

For the occasion, the infamously edgy Katy Perry left her American flag bustier and cat ears at home and went with a demure strapless Giambattista Valli gown with branch detailing at the waist. Her ebony hair was side parted in cascading waves. Her arms looked Michelle-Obama caliber AMAZING. (Take that, John Mayer.)

This playing-by-the-fashion-rules vibe made her almost unrecognizable, in fact. Has Katy ever met an event she didn't try to upend in some cheeky way? This is the same girl who made blue hair chic and who can pull off a bra made of film canisters. 

But look closely at a head-to-toe photo like this one of Katy Perry at the White House and you'll see that her inner rebel was in fact in attendance.

On her right hip, you can just catch a glimpse of her white underwear showing through the shimmery green fabric of her gown! In other words, Katy Perry had a wardrobe malfunction -- of sorts -- at the most stately event in town!

Now, it may have only been visible when the flashbulbs were flashing. (Note to anyone attending such an event, always take a flash photo of yourself in the mirror before you leave your house.) Or it could have been a deliberate there-for-everyone-to-see wardrobe malfunction that lasted all night long.

Katy does not seem the least bit bothered by it, however. She's made no statement about the reveal. Maybe because given the way celebrities have been dressing of late, showing an inch of underwear on the red carpet is not so embarrassing. I mean, honestly, side boob is everywhere. Nipples are poking out constantly. Underwear, according to stars like Gwyenth Paltrow and Anne Hathaway, is positively optional.

I hope Katy doesn't get any flack for this because, compared to her peers, the soon-to-be star of The Smurfs 2 is a class act.

I agree at least she has underwear.

Am I getting old, or do slips no longer exist?

Outer clothing should be sufficiently opaque that underwear color is indiscernable. If one must wear "nude" underwear so that it does not show through, one should select fabric with a denser weave. Unless one is a slut, which Miss Perry has repeatedly proved herself to be. At least she is not a cheap slut.

Wow, what decade are you ppl from? ROFL, she should wear "nude" underwear so a glimpse of her white undies wouldn't show through on her right thigh/hip? OMG, We don't have to hide our bra straps anymore either rofl..not since the 80's!
