16 Stars That Found Themselves in an Awkward Situation and Didn’t Even Blink an Eye

Celebrities are almost always under the relentless scrutiny of cameras, so it’s not surprising that each of their missteps quickly becomes public knowledge. Their elaborate outfits sometimes come apart at the seams or get caught on their heels, their speeches escape their minds, and their dresses, which looked perfect during fittings, can look completely different on stage. However, most stars pay no attention to these annoying little things and emerge from such situations with admirable humor.

Jenna Ortega

At the premiere of the latest Scream movie, the actress appeared in a dress by designer Olivier Rousteing. Unfortunately, at some point, Ortega got an ink stain on the white insert covering the neckline. The actress sincerely apologized to the master for the ruined dress, but the small embarrassment didn’t spoil Jenna’s mood, and she calmly posed for photographers.

The fashion designer chose a latex bodysuit for a social event. Before going out, her friend helped her zip up the back. Unfortunately, their paths separated, and when Lyons got home, she realized she couldn’t get rid of the outfit alone — it refused to unzip. According to Jenna, her worst nightmare had come true. She couldn’t take off the bodysuit, and she was horrified at the thought of having to sleep in this latex thing.

Venus Williams


At the 2022 Oscar ceremony, the white dress by Elie Saab played a nasty joke on the tennis player. The outfit had a daring neckline, and, at certain moments, it would open too wide, forcing Venus to cover the area with her hand. However, the evening still became one of the brightest moments for Williams because the biographical film telling her family’s story was nominated for several awards.

Katy Perry

During the filming of one of the episodes of American Idol, her leather pants of the singer split at the seam at the back. This moment caused a real stir in the studio, but Katy wasn’t embarrassed and asked assistants to fix her outfit with sticky tape right in front of the TV cameras. However, this is not the first situation of this sort in Perry’s life, and the star already knows how to deal with a wardrobe malfunction.

Jamie Lee Curtis

This year, for the first time in the last 60 years, the organizers of the Oscar ceremony decided to change the design of the red carpet. The usual red color was replaced with a light, pale cream shade. Such an innovation disappointed one of the nominees. The thing is, Jamie Lee Curtis had decided to wear a luxurious dress that perfectly matched the color of the carpet. The actress noted this even a day before the start of the ceremony. However, this did not spoil Curtis’s mood, and she advised everyone not to get nervous about trifles and simply enjoy the event.

The actress’s lavish black and white dress, in which she appeared at the Oscars this year, looked magnificent, but it was not very comfortable to move around in. When Banks took the stage to announce the winner in the “Best Visual Effects” category, she stumbled and almost fell. However, the woman managed to keep her balance and not only complete her journey to the microphone but also joke about the incident — Elizabeth claimed a giant bear was following her.

Amanda Seyfried

The actress looked absolutely stunning at the recent Critics’ Choice ceremony in an elegant gold dress. And although it seemed from the outside that Seyfried felt quite comfortable in the outfit, the woman later admitted that one of the sleeves of her dress kept trying to slip off her shoulder. Amanda even joked that she was ready to get rid of the outfit, as she was tired of constantly adjusting it.

Jennifer Coolidge

In 2022, the actress won her first Emmy Award for her role in the series White Lotus. Coolidge gave an emotional and funny speech on stage, but her allotted time ended too quickly, and she didn’t manage to thank everyone. At some point, the organizers turned on loud music, hinting that Jennifer should leave, and the actress simply couldn’t shout over it. Coolidge wasn’t fazed and performed a wonderful dance on stage.

Harry Styles

During his performance at the 2023 Grammy Awards, the singer unexpectedly stumbled while performing his hit song “As It Was.” Styles was not embarrassed at all by this unfortunate mistake and courageously continued to sing.

In 2014, Styles had to endure a secret nightmare that any person would dread. At a social event, he ran into two of his ex-girlfriends at the same time — Kendall Jenner and Cara Delevingne. The fateful encounter happened on a staircase, and many people later joked that the singer would probably only use the elevator from then on.

Troy Kotsur

At the recent British Academy of Film and Television Arts ceremony, during the award presentation for Best Supporting Actress, an awkward situation occurred. Troy Kotsur, who was supposed to announce the winner, called out Carey Mulligan’s name instead of Kerry Condon. Kotsur was able to quickly correct his mistake and invited Condon to the stage, so some members of the audience did not even notice the error.

Sarah Jessica Parker

At the New York premiere of the show And Just Like That, the actress had a mishap with her purse. The strap of the accessory broke off and Parker had to pick it up from the floor. However, this did not ruin the star’s mood, and she appeared happy and content throughout the rest of the evening.

Kim Basinger

Recently, on her Instagram page, the actress shared a memory from the 71st Oscar ceremony. For this event, Basinger wore a tight white strapless dress. At the moment when she had to go on stage to present an award, she heard a treacherous sound and realized that the seam on the back had split.

There was no time to change anything, so Kim firmly pressed her elbows to her sides and hoped that the dress would not slip off during the ceremony. Basinger was lucky, and she managed to keep the outfit on. The star says that many dresses are sewn directly onto women, so she has always been afraid of two things — falling in a dress and having a seam split.

Salma Hayek

In 2022, at the Screen Actors Guild Awards ceremony, Salma Hayek almost walked on stage with Fran Drescher. Hayek’s glove accidentally got caught on the jewelry that adorned the top of Drescher’s black dress. An assistant tried to fix the problem carefully without damaging either woman’s outfit. However, time was running out, and Salma noticed that they might have to present the award to Michael Keaton together. The funniest part was that Keaton himself was almost late to the stage because he got stuck in the bathroom.

Selena Gomez

In 2022, the singer’s outfits got out of control a few times. For one party, Selena wore a stylish black strapless dress. The dress was adorned with a high slit that apparently wanted to open wider, so she had to elegantly hold the fabric with her hand. However, this small incident couldn’t spoil Gomez’s mood.

And at the Emmy Awards ceremony, the girl appeared in a tight white dress. When Selena was told that she simply shone in this outfit, the singer admitted that the dress caused her a lot of trouble. The lining of the dress constantly tried to ride up, exposing parts of her body that Gomez would have preferred to keep hidden.

Amber Rose

At the BET Awards ceremony, a gust of wind played a cruel joke on the model’s outfit. The hem of her yellow and black dress unexpectedly lifted up, exposing the woman’s legs to immodest gazes. This episode did not upset the woman too much and amused her companion quite a bit.

Stefanie Scott

A similar mishap struck the actress during a photo shoot on the red carpet of Nickelodeon’s 26th Annual Kids’ Choice Awards. The hem of her dress simply flew up, and the girl had to frantically catch it.
