Argentinian TV star Virginia Gallardo, recently fell victim to that kind of wardrobe malfunction when she got excited about a comment on her hair and reached her arms up to her head – problem being, she was wearing a loose crop top and no bra...

Unfortunately for her, she also took a glass of water down with her when she hit the ground, so she was bruised and wet by the time she got up.

And who could forget that poor ABC journo who was daydreaming while on air...
