Venus Williams Suffers ‘Nip Slip’ During Will Smith’s Oscars Speech

In a twist you simply could not write, the 45 minutes of Will Smith chaos at the Oscars included a wardrobe malfunction from a sporting legend.

In what has been the wildest Oscars ceremony in history, a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it wardrobe malfunction has been captured by eagle-eyed viewers on Twitter.

Shortly after Will Smith’s tearful best actor win and furious outburst at Chris Rock sent the internet into overdrive, Venus Williams had a slight mishap with her plunging gown that the live stream unfortunately captured.

As the camera panned to Venus and Serena Williams — the subjects of Smith’s film King Richard — during Will Smith’s emotional post-slap speech, Venus could be seen trying to cover her chest as the fabric slipped to reveal her nipple.

Later in the night, Williams held her hand over her chest in a futile attempt to avoid revealing more than intended. Later in the night, Williams held her hand over her chest in a futile attempt to avoid revealing more than intended.

Those watching along at home couldn’t quite believe the peak-chaos ceremony came complete with a “nip slip” as well.

“I feel so bad for the broadcast team tonight,” one pointed on Twitter out as the event continued to derail.

Another likened the entire night to “an episode of The Jersey Shore”.

What a ride.

Venus wasn’t the only star to rock a revealing look tonight, with Tracee Ellis Ross garnering plenty of attention in her own eye-popping gown.

While the full skirt and striking red was serving dancing-emoji, the top of the gown … or lack thereof, divided fans online, with many remarking that it looked “unfinished” and “ill-fitting”.
