Ah, wardrobe malfunctions: that great universal leveler. Kris Jenner has had one; Emma Watson has had one; maybe you’ve even had one, too. Well, last night, yet another person fell victim to a sartorial snafu: UK Prime Minister David Cameron.
His little incident, unlike (presumably) yours or mine, occurred at the annual Lord Mayor’s Banquet in London’s Guildhall, a thoroughly stuffy-looking affair with women in floor length gowns mingling with men in fur-trimmed coats and ruffle-necked blouses. Cameron himself wore a dapper three-piece tuxedo accessorized with a pert white bow tie and a row of extra-fancy stud buttons to fasten up his shirt.
However, as we’ve learned so many times before, fancy-looking duds aren’t always the most durable, and sure enough the PM’s buttons undid themselves midway through the evening. Luckily, he caught wind of the malfunction and hastily did them right back up again, but not before the intrepid photographers managed to get in a couple of snaps:
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
