Today Show Host Apologizes After “Wardrobe Malfunction” On Live TV

Working from home has become the new normal for many media personalities, and the Today Show’s co-host, Savannah Guthrie, is no exception. However, juggling work responsibilities while taking care of her children and being a good mom has proven to be quite a challenge. Despite her best efforts, Guthrie recently experienced a wardrobe malfunction during a live broadcast.

In a candid social media post, Guthrie confessed to an itchy fashion mishap. Can you guess what it was? She accidentally wore her red and black patterned blouse backward! With her morning routine beginning at 3:30 am, it’s no wonder she missed this oversight.

Sharing a humorous picture on Instagram, Guthrie displayed the tag of her blouse scratching against her chin. In her caption, she wrote, “Put my dress on backward and didn’t notice till too late to change, so now I’m like (choking sounds).”

Guthrie is not alone in facing wardrobe challenges while working under new circumstances. BBC reporter Liz Beacon resorted to electrical tape and heavy-duty clips to keep her dress closed after a last-minute split before going live. Reflecting on the experience, Beacon humorously tweeted, “Talk about being strapped in for the ride…”

Even journalist Fiona Willan had her fair share of fashion mishaps, forgetting to properly put on a Toni Maticevski gown during the Midwinter Ball. She hilariously described the incident, saying, “A big limp piece of fabric, shamelessly flailing around as I vainly struck a pose.”

While these wardrobe malfunctions may bring a chuckle, it’s important to recognize the challenges media personalities face during the ongoing pandemic. With the worsening of the coronavirus situation and the possibility of stringent lockdown measures, Guthrie and her colleagues may find themselves working from home more frequently.

Now, the question remains: would you have noticed Guthrie’s backward blouse if she hadn’t mentioned it? Wardrobe malfunctions can happen to anyone, even experienced professionals. Let’s give them a break and focus on the content they bring to our screens.
