Lil' Kim nearly had a major wardrobe malfunction last night on "Dancing With the Stars."

This week's front-runner on the ABC dance competition had some trouble with her top at the end of a particularly energetic jive bop with partner Derek Hough.

Host Tom Bergeron provided cover before she and Hough approached the judges' table.

Lil' Kim told KABC-TV after the show: "I don't know why this happens a lot of the time, but … the girls were tryin' to come out."

Keep reading to check out the photos we found of Kim's past fashion flashes and near-misses. Like the Rapunzel/Lady Godiva get-up at left.

It doesn't take long to realize that this girl's whole life is a series of narrowly escaped wardrobe malfunctions.

The girls simply aren't strapped in well enough. And we think she knows that.
