Geri Halliwell encountered a similar scenario over the weekend when her short skirt flew up in the breeze, revealing a glimpse of her underwear.
The Spice Girl was ready for the windy weather, though, wearing a pair of purple knickers with pink frills and writing that matched her hot pink dress.

Miss Halliwell was chatting to neighbours in London when she was caught by the unexpected breeze, and emulated Marilyn's iconic pose as she struggled to hold her skirt down and not give her companions an eyeful.
The trio giggled as the 40-year-old attempted to preserve her modesty in the short dress.
Miss Halliwell did not appear to mind that the whole episode had been captured by nearby photographers, flashing the cameras a smile.

The mother-of-one added gold ballet flats to the dress, which had a flouncy skirt and low-cut neckline.
Her party dress could have been for celebrations for her daughter Bluebell, who turned five on Friday.
Miss Halliwell welcomed her daughter in 2006 at London's Portland hospital.

Bluebell's father is Sacha Gervasi, whom she dated for six weeks in 2005. The American screenwriter married heiress Jessica de Rothschild in December.
Miss Halliwell has been dating Henry Beckwith since 2009. The couple were spotted at the Lady Gaga showcase at member's club Annabel's last week.
