It’s bad enough to ruin a look you and your glam squad spent so much time putting together, but these celebrities also had those embarrassing moments immortalized forever, thanks or no thanks to the paparazzi.
Looking at the bright side, at least pictures prove that, hey, celebrities really are just like us! Check out these once perfectly coiffed celebrities photographed with all manners of stains on their dresses caused by sweat, water, and other mysterious substances.
1. Paula Patton’s Stained Hem
Paula Patton is first on this list because she and the mysterious blot on the hem of her Versace dress inspired it.
We empathize with her the most, though, because getting stains on yourself is almost guaranteed to happen when you wear all-white.

17. Kylie Minogue’s Stained Satin Dress
It rained down on everyone at the 2014 amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala, but Kylie Minogue had the misfortune of wearing a Juan Carlos Obando satin dress that showed all the water it had soaked up at the hemline.

18. Sharon Stone’s Water-Soaked Hemline
Another 2014 amfAR gala attendee, Sharon Stone’s Roberto Cavalli dress that was made of stretch jersey was heavily weighed down by a water-soaked hemline. Good thing the weight of the water didn’t pull down those hip cutouts farther than where they should be.
