Zuhair Murad's multiple wardrobe malfunctions

Image credits Technology-Club and Sofia Vergara

And so he did it again! I know this is not usual Beirut/NTSC territory, but heck, Zuhair Murad is Lebanese so can be counted to be part of this design critique blog. Earlier this year, at the Academy Awards, there was this huge dilemma if Jenifer Lopez did or did not have a nip-slip in her figure hugging Murad dress (I think she did, but the fact that so many people suspect it only makes it more credible). Then Sofia Vergara shows up at the Emmy Awards only to have her dress literally split from behind - also a gown by Zuhair Murad.
A more revealing image can be found here by the way, and I am not saying it doesn't happen to other designers (case in point Alber Elbaz from Lanvin!) but when this takes place at a few months' interval for the same designer, it makes you wonder if all Hollywood stars pick dresses several sizes too small, or if Murad has a serious "fitting" issue (or ill-fitting issue to be more exact).
Let it be known that Beirut/NTSC does not oppose to extra flesh from either Lopez or Vergara, and if the "serie noire" is to continue we are ready to help Murad pick his next victim (Kristen Stewart survived a Murad attempt lately, lucky for her and unlucky for us!).

I agree with the whole post except for the last comment!
Sofia Vergara should choose to come dressed in only a wine leave where it matters to the next award show she attends. As for J-Lo, at her age, dayum, she is such a hot mama!
A big no no to the choice of Kristen Stewart. The last thing is any part of that pale faced wannabe actress showing on live TV. Lets try and keep that piece of dull bitter white tuna wrapped up.
I would, however, like to see someone like Angelina Jolie, Charlize Theron (ref. Christian Dior's J'Adore AD), a la limite Queen Latifah, if big booted women is what you are looking for.
