Grin and bare it! Taylor Swift has a Marilyn Monroe moment when skirt blows up on stage.
We would be shocked if Taylor Swift hadn’t been a Girl Scout when she was younger.
Because the 21-year-old was ready for the perhaps embarrassing wardrobe malfunction that occurred during her performance on Saturday night in St. Louis, Missouri.
Taylor wore very sensible underwear, so he was spared the embarrassment of having yards of skin flaunted in public.
Blown away: During her performance in St. Louis, Taylor Swift’s skirt was blown up by a wind machine.
In 1955, Marilyn’s skirt bursts when a train goes beneath the subway grate.
The Grammy winner’s blue dress flew apart during a performance of her song You Belong With Me because of a strong wind gust from the wind machine.
It was uncannily similar to the iconic scene from the 1955 film Seven Year Itch, where Marilyn Monroe is standing on a subway grate as the powerful breeze from a passing train lifts her white halter-neck dress.
Swift avoided blushing even though she exposed her less-than-beautiful seamless panties thanks to the useful nude-colored clothing.
In reality, the young actress handled the entire scandal very well, sparing herself the humiliation that many of her fellow celebs would have suffered.
To applause from the crowd, she swiftly and firmly patted down her skirt and continued with her performance.
Before the storm arrives, everything is fine as Swift sings to a rapt audience, but her dress is already rising.
Up: Swift’s skirt is lifted by the wind machine, revealing her sensible Bridget Jones-style underwear.
Up: Swift no longer has control over the dress; the relentless ascent has begun.
And away: Swift is presumably happy that she opted for the practical underwear because the skirt is now unstoppable.
When it comes to showing off her amazing figure, the country phenomenon is modest, in contrast to many of her peers.
She said she “doesn’t feel comfortable taking [her] clothes off” in an April interview with The Telegraph.
She said, “I don’t think it’s necessary to wear that stuff in photo shoots; I wouldn’t wear tiny amounts of clothing in my life.”
