15 Celebrities Who Got Into an Awkward Situation but Kept on Smiling No Matter What

6 months ago

Celebrities are usually meticulous about their looks at high-profile events. But lavish outfits and sophisticated makeup may let you down at the most unexpected moment. A zipper can come undone, seams can tear, foundation can look sloppy, or your shoes can turn out to be too tight. But celebrities don’t think these are good reasons to get upset.

Kate Hudson

The actress still trembles when she recalls the chic Versace dress that she donned in 2005. The outfit turned out to be so tight that Hudson could hardly move. She had to stand all the way to the event, and later, she couldn’t sit at the table properly.

She had to sit sideways because when she tried to get comfortable on the chair, the dress would pull at the seams and could tear any second. And her tablemates couldn’t understand what was bothering her.

The actress chose a chic black and white dress for the recent Oscars. Even though the outfit was beautiful, it was also pretty uncomfortable. As a result, while crossing the stage, Banks tripped over the skirt and managed to stay on her feet only by some miracle.

The actress is not a fan of high heels and prefers more comfortable footwear. She even showed up at Buckingham Palace in sneakers, causing a frenzy. This is why when her shoes began to make her feel uncomfortable at the Munich Film Festival, Thompson simply took them off and walked the red carpet barefoot.

Jenna Ortega

The actress chose a black dress with a white bodice for the Scream VI premiere. Unfortunately, at some point, the white fabric was stained with some ink. However, this little malfunction didn’t seem to bother Ortega at all, and she continued to pose in front of the cameras. Ortega later apologized to the designer who created the dress.

Emma Stone


At the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, the actress’s short skirt suddenly flew up due to a gust of wind. But Stone handled this situation like a pro and managed to catch her skirt right in time. Then the wind decided to ruin her hair. It didn’t spoil Stone’s mood, however, and the actress cheerfully continued her press conference.

Nicole Kidman

At the 2017 Oscars, Kidman appeared in a gorgeous nude dress. But the gown apparently was too tight, causing irritation on her neck. However, instead of getting frustrated, the actress simply redesigned the dress. She detached the 2 thin ribbons that crossed over her back and tied them around her neck.

Julia Roberts

In 2016, Roberts decided to go against the Cannes Film Festival rules. The organizers require all the women in attendance to wear heels. The actress did wear heels at the beginning of the night, but later, she took them off and proceeded barefoot. She looked gorgeous anyway.

Margot Robbie

A thigh-high split of a dress can cause a lot of trouble, and Robbie experienced this firsthand. At the Sydney premiere of Babylon, she walked the red carpet in a tight blue dress. However, she almost exposed herself when the bold split nearly revealed more than she had intended. But the actress managed to pull it down in time.

Anne Hathaway

The actress’s sense of style is enviable. Hathaway always looks eye-catching yet elegant, but she can make fashion mistakes just like everyone else. For example, Hathaway appeared with a little more powder on her face than necessary at one event. However, she didn’t look embarrassed because of this.

Jessica Chastain

Tight outfits and thigh-high splits aren’t the only things that cause problems. Fluffy skirts can also pose danger. During the Screen Actors Guild Awards, the actress stumbled on stage and nearly fell over. Chastain was even able to laugh at this mishap and later wrote on social media, “The shock of last night really swept me off my feet!”

Sarah Jessica Parker

In 2004, Parker appeared at the Tony Awards in a strapless white dress. However, when on stage, she regretted her choice. Even though the bodice was tight, the neckline was too low, so her outfit continued to slip down the whole time.

So when Hugh Jackman asked Parker to dance, she had to decline with a laugh. She was afraid that any sudden movement would cause her to lose the dress.

In 2003, Diaz had a shoe mishap at the premiere of Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle. But this didn’t upset the actress one bit, and instead of looking for a replacement, she just walked the red carpet barefoot.

Taylor Swift

During a performance, musicians have to move more actively on stage than actors usually do on the red carpet. Therefore, various mishaps often occur with their costumes. Taylor Swift had a costume malfunction when her purple garter tore right on stage.

The celebrity didn’t stop singing and just walked up to her assistants to remove this element of her outfit. At the same time, Swift happened to reach the point in the song with the lyrics, “I end up in crisis,” to which she hilariously nodded along.

Gina Rodriguez

Rodriguez shudders every time she recalls her wardrobe malfunction. 10 minutes before leaving the house, the actress realized that the dress didn’t fit her well. There was no time to fix it properly, so a stylist simply altered the outfit while Rodriguez was wearing it.

When the event was over, the stylist just “ripped her out of the dress.” Rodriguez barely remembers what the dress looked like, but she clearly remembers the whole story as if it happened yesterday.

In 2003, the actress appeared at the Academy Awards in a gorgeous black and white dress. But she wasn’t supposed to wear it.

A day before the ceremony, Hayek’s outfit tore, and it was impossible to fix it, so Hayek turned to Renée Zellweger for help. Luckily, she had a spare outfit, which she lent to Hayek. The dress was quickly altered, and this was how the friendship between the 2 actresses began.

All of us sometimes have to face the problem of how to choose beautiful yet comfortable clothes and shoes. We’ve already uncovered little tricks that can help you with this task.
