reese witherspoonAnd to think, it was only a few weeks ago that the nation still thought of Reese Witherspoon as America's Sweetheart. First, there was the drunken arrest. Now there's the wardrobe malfunction. The bare-bottomed wardrobe malfunction, to be exact. Truth be told, this was an honest mishap and could have happened to anyone, but yowza! What a different side we're seeing of Reese these days -- literally.

You kind of have to feel bad for the woman, because all she's doing in the photo is walking. Reese probably just wanted to get an iced coffee, then an unfortunate confluence of events occurred -- the wind blew just so; there were 30 people manically snapping her picture; and she was wearing what appears to be a microscopic nude thong underneath her skirt. What are the chances besides high if it's a windy day and you're a celebrity who's wearing a short skirt with very little underneath? Poor Reese and her wardrobe malfunction.

If it's any consolation, she has a fantastic bum, and this totally doesn't seem like one of those planned-for-publicity wardrobe malfunctions. It appears to be an honest to goodness mistake. But perhaps this will inspire Reese to thrown on a pair of bloomers underneath her short, flouncy skirts. Just a thought.

What do you think of this?
