11 Celebrities Who Had an Outfit Mishap but Managed to Improvise on the Fly
For celebrities, every event offers an opportunity for transformation and beauty, in which their clothing is one of the main elements to make them look splendid. However, no one in the world of show business, whether on stage or on the red carpet, is spared from small or big inconveniences that can affect their appearance.
Bright Side wants to show you how 11 celebrities dealt with sudden outfit failures and how others simply learned to live with it.
1. Cardi B at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival
In 2019, while the American singer was performing at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, the rhinestone gown she was wearing split open in the back. Cardi B didn’t let that problem ruin her performance, so she went backstage and then returned wearing a white robe to continue her show.
2. Gigi Hadid on the runway at Marc Jacobs’ NYFW show
Before Gigi Hadid took to the runway at fashion designer Marc Jacobs’ 2019 New York Fashion Week show, her heels broke. Still, the model showed all her confidence and walked barefoot on the catwalk, as if she were wearing her shoes.
3. Beyoncé during the 2005 Academy Awards
During a mid-performance costume change at the 2005 Academy Awards, Beyoncé lost a shoe in her dress, so she balanced on a high heel and stood on her tiptoes barefoot. The only thing going through her mind at the time was, “Oh my God, shoe, please stay in my dress!”
4. Priyanka Chopra on the red carpet at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival
Minutes before Priyanka Chopra was due to hit the red carpet at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, the zipper on her dress broke, so her team had to stitch the garment on during the 5-minute drive to the venue.
5. Miley Cyrus during NBC’s live special Miley’s New Year’s Eve Party
After singing a couple of songs on a live special, Miley Cyrus’ wardrobe top ripped in the middle of the stage. The singer simply turned around, dropped the garment, sang her way out of everyone’s sight, and then returned with a red blazer to continue the show.
6. Kylie Jenner at the 2018 Met Gala
The dress Kylie Jenner wore to the 2018 Met Gala ripped when she was putting it on just before leaving for the event, so her team had to fix the issue and quickly add a zipper.
7. Zendaya at the premiere of Spider-Man: No Way Home
When Zendaya needed to adjust her dress at the premiere of the movie Spider-Man: No Way Home, her co-star, Tom Holland, showed his great chivalry by standing in front of her to shield her from the cameras.
8. Margot Robbie at the European Premiere of Tarzan
In 2016, on the red carpet of the European premiere of the movie Tarzan, actress Margot Robbie asked her co-star, Alexander Skarsgård, to help her fix a problem with the back of her dress.
9. Katy Perry at the 2017 Academy Awards
After the 2017 Academy Awards, most celebrities gathered at a celebratory party hosted by Vanity Fair, including Katy Perry, who had a misfortunate accident that made her the victim of an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction: it left the back of her body a bit exposed.
10. Kristen Stewart at the premiere of Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2
The nude dress Kristen Stewart wore for the premiere of Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 may not have been her best choice. The actress wore a soft gold-colored corset dress paired with a sheer skirt, confidently showing off the skin underneath the translucent fabric.
11. Dakota Johnson on the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival
Film director Luca Guadagnino saved actress Dakota Johnson from a major embarrassment because of a little slip with her outfit. It seems that the celebrity’s dress slipped down a bit, almost exposing her braless chest. Luca luckily noticed it before the photographers did.
