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

1. 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.

2. Before Gigi Hadid hit the runway at the Marc Jacobs 2020 NYFW show, her heels snapped, so she tiptoed barefoot down the catwalk.

3. During a mid-performance wardrobe change at the 2005 Academy Awards, Beyoncé lost a shoe inside her dress, so she balanced in one high heel and stood on the toes of her bare foot.

4. During his Saturday Night Live performance, Lil Nas X ripped the front of his pants, so he kept his hand over the tear for the rest of the song.

5. While Elisabetta Canalis was getting her hair done for the 2010 Oscars, her dress zipper broke, so her then-boyfriend, George Clooney, stepped in to sew it back in place for her.

6. At the 1998 Oscars, Minnie Driver's dress started to fall off, so she quickly whipped the faux fur stole she was carrying around her shoulders.

7. 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.

8. 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.

9. At the 2021 Emmy Awards, Mandy Moore's dress strap snapped when she hugged Sophia Bush, who ran to find a seamstress to repair it during the next commercial break.
