Never walk the red carpet without either safety pins or George Clooney.

Wearing a bunch of trendy designer outfits seems like it would be one of the best parts of being famous. However, no one in Hollywood — whether they’re on stage or on the red carpet — is immune to the occasional wardrobe malfunction.

Dealing with a sudden fashion fail requires some pretty quick, in-the-moment problem solving.

Here are 15 extremely resourceful ways celebs dealt with wardrobe malfunctions:


Ten minutes into her Bonnaroo performance in 2019, Cardi B‘s rhinestone bodysuit split wide open in the back, so she ran backstage, then returned wearing a hotel bathrobe.

At the 2020 Oscars, the clasp on Beanie Feldstein‘s halter dress gave way 18 seconds before she was supposed to present an award, so she quickly found someone who had a safety pin.

Minutes before Priyanka Chopra had to leave for the 2019 Cannes Film Festival red carpet, the zipper on her vintage dress broke, so she had her team sew her into the dress on the five-minute car ride to the venue.
